NBA DFS Droppin Dimes 8/1/2020

Today’s slate breaks down for the 5 games starting at 1pm. Clippers/Pelican game running at the fastest pace. Followed by the Lakers and Raptors. Clippers get the best defensive matchup. Looks like a lot of good defenses going against each other.

POINT GUARDS

Mike Conley
The Jazz get a nice pace bump against the Pelicans who are also ranked 24th over all defensively. Agains the point guard position they rank 29th. This is an excellent matchup for Conley and the Jazz guards. Last game Conley player 34 minutes and should expect him to play at least 30 today.

Reggie Jackson

The Clippers are down a few players. This will allow Jackson to play solid minutes again as he logged 34 last game. Much better matchup vs the Pelicans today where I can see him taking 15 + shots. Should come in at low ownership.

Monte Morris

Nuggets are with out Harris, Barton and possibly Murray. This opens up a ton of minutes at the guard position. Morris has played well in the past when starting.

TJ McConnell

Going with McConnelL over A Holiday. Sixers are a good defensive team and Holiday will most likely start. McConnell will come off the bench and get a better matchup. Plus he had a higher upside. Don’t see him getting much ownership as it should go mostly to Holiday.

SHOOTING GUARDS

Donovan Mitchell/Jordan Clarkson

Similar to Conley these two are in good spots as the Pelicans struggle vs opposing guards. Mitchell picks up the most usage with Bogdanovic off the floor and Clarkson takes most of the usage up on the second unit.

Paul George

George is under priced for the minutes ge played last game. Excellent matchup in pace up spot where he will excel.

Dion Waiters

SMALL FORWARD

Danilo Gallinari

Gallo has been consistent all season. Averaging 20 real points and 30 FPs. Solid floor with some upside today.

Jae Crowder

Mr “Honey Badger” has played well for the Heat. He has seen over 30 minutes in most of the games. Like this spot for low ownership and 7x upside.

JJ Redick

Redick took 15 shots last game and should see similar shot volume. Only 3.5K

Michael Porter/Bol Bol

Cheap option that will be popular today.

POWER FORWARD

Anthony Davis

Paul Milsap

Prefer Milsap at his price over Jokic tonight. Should put up 6-7x.

Doug McDermott

CENTERS

Steven Adams

Ivaca Zubac

Excellent spot for Zubac to go off.
