NBA DFS DROPPIN DIMES 2.20.2020

The NBA is back after a week off from the ALL-Star break.

Best matchup: Miami Heat vs Hawks 30th tank defense.

Favorite game: Grizzlies vs Kings- fast paced game with high total. Grizzlies one of the worst defensive teams.

Hornets(29th) and Bulls(30th) ranked vs opposing Centers.

* 4 Players today that are over 10k on both sites today. Harden, Westbrook, Young and Giannis. They are usually in play and I would rank them according to value: Westbrook, Harden Giannis and Young. I will have possible one of them in a lineup or two but will mainly focus on some of the other players that are listed in this article.

POINT GUARDS

De’Aaron Fox

Fox is playing over 30 minutes a game and taking around 15 shots. Double/double upside with assists. Price is down and gets an excellent matchup in what will be a very fast paced game.

VALUE

Terry Rozier

Rozier continues to play around 35 minutes tonight, still taking double digit shot attempts and playing fairly well, but he has seen a price decrease to under 6K on both sites which puts him in play tonight. The Bulls have been very good on defense, but have some injuries as of late which has throw off the defense a bit. Also a pace up spot for the Hornets which helps out.

Bruce Brown is under priced on FD and worth a look.

Shaq Harrison- 3k on DK and 3.7k on FD. Should see a bump in minutes tonight with all the Bulls injuries. Has posted a 1.1 FPPM on the year. Also consider Ryan Arcidiacono.

SHOOTING GUARDS

Jimmy Butler

Elite matchup for Butler tonight as he faces the worst defensive team in a pace up spot. On the year Butler has averaged 1.3 FPPM and should see a boost against the Hawks tonight. Game has a close spread due to the Heat being on the road, where they don’t play as well.

Bogdan Bogdanovic- has been in a slump as of late. Shot has been off which has limited his upside. All-Star break plus excellent matchup should break him out.

VALUE

Jordan Poole

Svi Mykhailuk- dirt cheap and should see additional minutes with injuries and Jackson gone.

SMALL FORWARDS

Caris LeVert

Jae Crowder- pace up spot and playing around 39 minutes.

VALUE

Josh Richardson

J Rich finally saw his minutes just up last game after coming back from injury. Played 33 minutes and posted 21 points along with a few other peripherals. This is a pace up spot and solid matchup for J Rich tonight and an excellent value at his current price. Excellent play and a lock if Ben Simmons sits out.

Derrick Jones Jr.- should have a good game. Does well in fast paced games.

POWER FORWARDS

Nemanja Bjelica

The Kings are still with out Bagley and Holmes. They also got rid of Dedmon. Bjelica should see a lot of minutes at center tonight. Pace up spot and good matchup for the Kings.

Bam Adebayo- solid play as of late with 40 or more FPs in 7 straight games. Pace up spot and against the work defensive team tonight. Trip/Dub upside.

VALUE

Danuel House Jr.-playing a ton of minutes and good matchup.

PJ Washington

CENTERS

Joel Embiid 

Embiid has one of the best matchups at the center position tonight. Also, Al Horford has a similar matchup and should play some center tonight. Good spot for both, but would only play one of the two.

VALUE

PJ Tucker- price has come down and this is a spot where Tucker should do well.

Luke Kornet/Daniel Gafford- The Hornets are the 2nd worst team vs the center position. Both of these players are cheap and should get solid run tonight.

DK sample lineup 4 players- $5250 left per player. Each player has 50 FPs upside. Balanced lineup and a more contrarian look.
