NBA DFS 12-30-20 DraftKings Value Picks

on

Welcome to the NBA DFS 12-30-20 DraftKings Value Picks article!

We’ve got a six-game slate with some great opportunities to earn some money and some great pairing to help earn that money.

A cheap pairing I like is the Grizzlies’ Dillon Brooks ($6,200) and Kyle Anderson ($6,000). You get two scorers who will get plenty of shots with Ja Morant out.

The intermediate pairing to target is Miami’s Bam Adebayo ($7,600) and Duncan Robinson ($4,800). You get a big man who is a three-category contributor and a deadly three-point shooter.

The expensive pairing worth paying up for is Atlanta’s Trae Young ($9.600) and John Collins ($7,100). You get the number one and number two option in one of the league’s most improving offenses.

Six-Game Slate

Hawks @ Nets (-6.5) – 240 over/under
Lakers (-6) @ Spurs – 228
Bucks (-6) @ Heat – 227.5 o/u
Blazers @ Clippers (-4) – 225.5 o/u
Hornets @ Mavs (-7.5) – 224.5 o/u
Grizzlies @ Celtics (-5) – 216.5 o/u

Point Guard

Devonte’ Graham, Charlotte Hornets $6,600

Graham has been an assist machine in the Hornets’ first few games of the season; he had 10 assists in two games out of his previous three games.

He has attempted seven or more three-pointers in each game but hasn’t been consistently making them like he did last year. But, Graham will have to step up his three-point shooting against the Mavericks if they want to stay competitive. It helps that Dallas is allowing point guards to shoot 41 percent from three-point range, so Graham has the chance to get out of his funk.

Shooting Guard

Dillon Brooks, Memphis Grizzlies $6,200

Ja Morant is dealing with an ankle injury and could be out of tonight’s game, which means the Memphis guards will have to fill in the scoring gap left behind with Morant being out.

Brooks is the prime candidate to be the scoring replacement for Morant. He scored 24 points, grabbed seven rebounds, and dished out four assists in the Grizzlies last game when Morant was injured.

The stars are aligned for Brooks to be the Grizzlies’ top scorer against the Celtics.

Small Forward

DeMar DeRozan, San Antonio Spurs $6,900

DeRozan is a triple-double waiting to happen. He is averaging 21 points, nine assists, and 5.7 rebounds so far this season.

He is the Spurs’ primary weapon and has been decent against LeBron James and Anthony Davis in previous matchups.

Against LeBron James, DeRozan averages 21.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 4.1 assists.

Against Anthony Davis, DeRozan averages 22.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 4.8 assists.

Power Forward

John Collins, Atlanta Hawks $7,100

Collins is one of my favorite targets in Fantasy Basketball, ride or die baby. So, any chance I can suggest him as a value option, I’m pulling that trigger.

He could walk away with a double-double in his pocket almost every night, and he is Trae Young’s first look in the Hawks’ offense.

Collins should have a fantastic night since he’ll match up against Taurean Prince. Collins averages 20.5 points, nine rebounds, and 2.5 assists when facing Prince.

Center

Serge Ibaka, Los Angeles Clippers $5,400

Ibaka is one of the most solid centers in the league and is always undervalued. Right now, he is averaging 14.3 points, 5.7 assists, and one assist this season.

Tonight, he has a matchup against a Portland defense that struggles to stop centers in the paint. The Trail Blazers allow 22.7 points, 9.1 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game to centers this season, according to FantasyPros DvP.

As I previously mentioned, the Clippers are a slow pace offensive team because they look for easy points rather than rely on three-point shooting and Ibaka is their primary option in the post if George and Leonard can’t force it to the basket themselves.

About Travis Argo

I'm a die hard fan of teams that constantly disappointment me every season. So, I write about fantasy sports to forget my sorrows. That's hard sometimes because I'm a Pacers correspondent for Fantasypros.com. I also recently graduated with honors from UNCC. Go Niners...I guess.
