NBA DFS Dropping Dimes 1.7.20

6 game slate with some players news that could alter some plays. Listed below are my notes for these players.


Notes

*Karl-Anthony Towns is listed as questionable, but the fact he has not practices yet is not looking good. If he sits out then Andrew Wiggins, Shabazz Napier & Dieng becoming very good plays with Covington, Martin & Teague becoming viable as well. This is my favorite game of the night. Fastest pace and no defense.

**CJ McCollum is listed as questionable as well. If he sits then Damien Lillard becomes and excellent play along with Anfernee Simons & Carmelo Anthony. Hassan Whiteside becomes viable as well.

***Richard Holmes left last nights games and is listed as questionable. If he sits out then NemanjaBjelica becomes an excellent play and Harry Giles is an excellent value play. Also Harrison Barnes become a good play as well.

POINT GUARDS

Kyle Lowry

Lowry picks up the most usage with + 9% with Siakam, VanVleet, Gasol and Powell off the floor. He is also plays a ton of minutes. Matchup is ideal as the Blazers rank 26th vs opposing PGs.

Chris Paul

Price down to 6.9K on DK. No Gallo so picks up some additional usage.

VALUE

Tyus Jones

Quitely playing well as of late with 20 or more FPs in 6 of the last 8 games. Nice matchup vs the Wolves in a fast paced game.

Darius Garland

Averaging 35 minutes over the last 5 games. Getting used to the NBA and gets a good matchup vs the depleted Pistons.

Rajon Rondo- If LeBron sits out. 

SHOOTING GUARDS

Andrew Wiggins

The Grizzles run at a fast place and have been one of the worst defensive teams. Price has come down on Wiggins, especially on DK. Like him even more if Towns sits out tonight.

Devin Booker

Minutes + Shots + 32 real points in 5 straight games. Booker is playing at an elite level right now:

VALUE

Svi Mykhailiuk

Consistent minutes and production as of late. 30+ minutes and 20+ FPs.

Bruce Brown
Consistency with upside tonight vs the Cavs.

Kentavious Caldwell- Pope- if James sits out.

SMALL FORWARDS

Jae Crowder

Boom or just with Crowder. Has shown his upside of over 60 FPs a few games ago. Excellent matchup and fast paced game.

Carmelo Anthony
Melo has cooled down a bit as of late. Good spot tonight if McCollum sits out. Nice matchup bs the Raptors.

OG Anunoby

Raptors limited with bodies and OG should play 30+. Excellent matchup vs the Blazers .

VALUE

Sekou Doumbouya

Doumbouya has stepped into the starting lineup for the Pistons and put up 2- double/doubles in 3 games. Playing 30+ Minutes and see some upside tonight vs the Cavs 29th ranked defense.

Kevin Knox

Could get the start for Morris tonight or see an increase in minutes. Only 3.1K on DK.

Trevor Ariza

POWER FORWARDS

Anthony Davis

Playing a ton of minutes and playing well as of late. Don’t see anyone on the Knicks stopping him tonight. In an even better spot if James sits out.

Nemanja Bjelica

Bagley will be out and Holmes is listed as doubtful. Should see Bjelica play 30+ and some minutes at the center position. The Kings will be limited on big men, so I have Bjelica as on of my favorite options tonight.

Julius Randle

Playing very well as of late. Priced down a bit.

VALUE

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson

The Raptors will be short handed tonight with VanVleet listed out in addition to Gasol, Siakam & Powell. Jefferson has played 26 or more minutes in the past 3 games and could see a few more tonight. Love targeting the Blazers as the have been one of the worst teams defensively and especially vs opposing PF/C.

Mike Muscala

Galo and Noel will be out tonight this opens up more minutes for Muscala. Dirt cheap option with an excellent matchup vs the Nets.

Kyle Kuzma- in play if James sits out.

CENTERS

Steven Adams

Noel has been ruled out again and this should solidify Adams with 30 + minutes. He has played very well over the past 2 games averaging 45 FPs, 17.5 points and 15.5 rebounds. Good matchup vs the Nets.

Andre Drummond

No Blake, No Morris- Drummond vs Cavs 29th over all defense ranking.

VALUE

Aaron Baynes

Playing along side Ayton. Like this matchup tonight vs the Kings who should be short handed with Bigs tonight.

Harry Giles- if Holmes sits out. 

Bobby Portis

No Morris tonight. Should see Portis pick up some additional minutes. 1 - FPPM player.
