Monta Ellis on Path to Career Year

Golden State Warriors guard Monta Ellis is off to a fantastic start. With his 40-point performance tonight, the second time he's reached 40 this year, Ellis finds himself behind only Kevin Durant in scoring. His scoring and FG% are currently at career best marks.

The Breakdown
Ellis has emerged over the last two years as one of the best scorers in the NBA. Even while he's pumping in points, he still provides nearly 5 assists, 4 rebounds, and he's consistently one of the league leaders in steals. Monta is putting up the type of lines we expect from first rounders, although many fantasy owners were able to nab him in the third or even fourth round this year. If Ellis can maintain his FG% up in the area near 50% where it currently stands and slightly improve his three-point shooting, Ellis could be a threat to finish in the top five of fantasy hoops this season.
