An eight-game slate is on tap in the NBA for Monday, and were here to help you win in daily fantasy contests. Austin Bryant Lions Jersey .Below youll find players that our experts are building their teams around tonight, as well as some players who will be highly owned but should be faded. Our panel today consists of Renee Miller, Joe Kaiser and Kyle Soppe.Building blockRenee Miller: Blake Griffin, PF, Los Angeles ClippersWhile Chris Paul worries me in easy-matchup, blowout situations, Griffin is quite the opposite. He thrives in these fast-paced, high-scoring games, and should take full advantage of Brooklyns number two ranking in fantasy points allowed to opposing PFs. If youre aiming to create a more balanced lineup than Anthony Davis allows tonight, consider Griffin a solid choice to build around.Joe Kaiser: Joel Embiid, C, Philadelphia 76ersEmbiids price is slowly risking in DFS, but not as fast as it should be. Embiid has scored at least 22 points in two of the last three games, pulled down at least six rebounds in all but one game, and blocked four shots in two of the last four contests. Point is, hes doing it all on the court from one game to another, and that is always great as far as accumulating points in DFS is concerned. Tonight he faces a Rockets team that ranks 27th in the league in defensive efficiency, and also ranks in the bottom half of the league when it comes to allowing DFS points to opposing centers. Im all over Embiid on Monday, and you should be as well.Kyle Soppe: Evan Fournier, SG, Orlando MagicThe Magic-Pacers game is going to be a fun one for fantasy purposes, and Im seeking as much exposure as possible. These are two of the three least efficient defenses through the first couple weeks of the season, and with the Pacers operating at an above-average pace of play, I expect Orlando to pick up their tempo from their typically slow style. In Fournier, you get a player that has been on the court for more than 35 minutes in four of seven games this month, giving him a volume bump over most. He has knocked down multiple trifectas in three straight (and in seven of his past eight games) in addition to totaling at least seven rebounds-plus-assists in half of his games this season. Look for him to put 20 points on the board for a career-best third straight game, and do so in a very efficient manner.FadeRenee Miller: Andre Drummond, C, Detroit PistonsRostering big men against the Oklahoma City Thunder just isnt something I do. The Thunder are among the stingiest in terms of fantasy points allowed -- something that goes back to last season -- and even the elite, like Hassan Whiteside, struggle against them (23 fantasy points last week). Drummonds recent stretch of five consecutive double-doubles could very well end badly tonight, and with so many other guys to pay up for, Drummond is the man out for me.Joe Kaiser: Victor Oladipo, SG, Oklahoma City ThunderToo much of Oladipos DFS value is wrapped up on scoring, thanks to big declines in his assists and steals this season, and that makes him a huge risk on a night when the Thunder head to Detroit to face the leagues fifth-ranked defense. On top of that, the Pistons rank 22nd in the league in pace, which will limit the amount of possessions and opportunity for Oladipo. The Indiana product has been a big fantasy disappointment so far this season, and Im looking elsewhere at shooting guard tonight.Kyle Soppe: Hassan Whiteside, C, Miami HeatIt is easy to look at the nearly 18 points and 15 rebounds that Whiteside is producing per game this season and fall in love, but that production has inflated his price far too much to justify paying up tonight. While Whiteside is great -- and I am on board for season-long leagues -- he faces off against the sixth-most efficient defense this season, a team that has been nothing short of elite in limiting interior fantasy production. Whiteside struggled mightily against a strong front court in the Oklahoma City Thunder (five points and 12 rebounds in 31 minutes of action) and I expect a similar lack of return on investment tonight, with foul trouble being a very real concern. T.J. Hockenson Jersey . Traditional contenders Brazil, Greece and Turkey drew the other three spots to complete the 24-team field for this summers tournament in Spain, basketball governing body FIBA announced Saturday at its meeting in Barcelona. Jarrad Davis Lions Jersey . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. http:///...kenson-black-jersey/ . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. Whenever Flash Wolves play a South Korean team, the Taiwanese champion becomes the best team in the world. Last year it defeated the Tigers both times in the group stages, and it did the same against SK Telecom T1 during this years Mid-Season Invitational group stage. The winning streak continued against South Koreas best on Sunday night, the Wolves breaking out of a two loss slump to shock SKT, the only undefeated left in the tournament at the time. With the win, it kept its chance of making the quarterfinals for a second straight Worlds alive.ESPN interviewed the teams star jungler Hung Karsa Hau-Hsuan after the victory.Why is Flash Wolves so strong against South Korean teams? You are now 5-0 against the Tigers and SKT in the last year.Karsa: I think the main reason is that when we play against them, were always playing at our rhythm. And the Korean teams just cant keep up with [us]. Thats why we always win against them.One of the biggest concerns on the SKT roster is its decision between two junglers: veteran Bae Bengi Seong-woong and rookie Kang Blank Sun-gu. What do you think of the two SKT junglers?Karsa: Ive actually never played against Bengi before. But in terms of Blank, I think that [he] is a good player but he always makes little mistakes in-game. It seems like hes really nervous, thats how were able to play weell against them. Austin Bryant Lions Jersey. . If Bengi plays, though, we know hes kinda like Fakers personal bodyguard, so mid lane would be much harder to gank.On the other spectrum of your success against Korean teams, you always struggle when pitted against North American squads. Why do you think that is?Karsa: So with North American teams, once they get an advantage in the game, theyre really good at snowballing atop of it and capitalizing on [chances]. And for us, we dont usually play against teams like that, thats why it is hard for us to adjust to them.Is there any jungler at Worlds you want to play against?Karsa: The jungler I really want to play against is probably Bengi. Even though we just played SKT, Bengi wasnt [starting]. [I want to play him] because hes been on a championship team twice.Finally, how do you feel you will do next week, and do you believe that any team has the ability to win the Summoners Cup this year after all the craziness this first week?Karsa: I cant really say for sure [until later in the tournament]. But for next [upcoming] games, were pretty confident were going to win. And if were going to face up against a Korean team again, were really confident were going to beat them. ' ' '
