There are plenty of options to choose from with a dozen games on the schedule Monday.
Keep an eye on the status of Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Conley. He is questionable to face the Golden State Warriors with a foot injury, and if he is sidelined for the third straight game, guard Beno Udrih ($3,000 salary, 6.0% of cap) should make a solid source of cap relief. Udrih is averaging 23.50 fantasy points as a starter the past two games.
F Anthony Davis, Pelicans at Timberwolves
$9,400 salary | 18.8% of cap
Davis has eclipsed 40.00 FantasyScore points in nine of his last 10 games, and he dropped 52.75 against the Timberwolves March 29. With the Pelicans facing a must-win game as they try to make the playoffs, look for "The Brow" to be at his best against a Minnesota defense allowing the most points per game in the NBA.
C Nikola Vucevic, Magic at Heat
$7,500 salary | 15.0% of cap
Vucevic has delivered at least 29.00 fantasy points in each of his last 10 games, and he has dominated the Heat this season. In three previous meetings with Miami he is averaging 28.3 points on 54.8% shooting and 45.73 fantasy points. His safe floor and high ceiling make him well worth his price tag.
G Jordan Clarkson, Lakers at Kings
$4,800 salary | 9.6% of cap
He has topped 30.00 fantasy points in eight of his last nine games, and with Jeremy Lin out of action, Clarkson has topped 40.00 in three straight. With Lin expected to miss the rest of the season, Clarkson should all the minutes he can handle in a friendly matchup with Sacramento's 29th-ranked scoring defense.

F Danilo Gallinari, Nuggets at Clippers
$4,500 salary | 9.0% of cap
Gallinari has been on a roll recently, averaging 47.50 fantasy points over his past three games. There is a good chance his hot streak continues against a Clippers team that is allowing the second most points, most rebounds and most assists per game to small forwards.
F Robert Covington, 76ers vs. Bucks
$4,500 salary | 9.0% of cap
The streaky Covington has been shooting the ball well lately, delivering 35.75 and 34.25 fantasy points in his last two games, respectively. With Nerlens Noel (ankle) not expected to play, Covington will be leaned on heavily for his scoring ability, and he should be primed for another big game.
F Zach Randolph, Grizzlies at Warriors
$7,100 salary | 14.2% of cap
The double-double machine has been quiet in two meetings with Golden State this year, averaging just 13.5 points and 6.5 rebounds. In fact, he pulled down just three rebounds against Golden State March 27, finishing with 18.75 fantasy points.
G Monta Ellis, Mavericks at Jazz
$6,300 salary | 12.6% of cap
Ellis has failed to reach his season average of 31.22 fantasy points in eight of his last 10 games, and he has actually scored less than 20.00 four times during the stretch. Don't bank on him breaking out of his slump against Utah's top-ranked scoring defense.
