NBA DFS 8-4-20 DraftKings Value Picks

on

Welcome to NBA DFS 8-4-20 DraftKings Value Picks post!

We’ve got a six-game slate with a few good pairings available.

A cheap pairing is Brooklyn’s Tyler Johnson ($6,600) and Garrett Temple ($5,800). Yes, they are facing off against the Bucks, but someone has to score some buckets for the Nets.

The intermediate option is Indiana’s Aaron Holiday ($5,100) and T.J. Warren ($8,000), two players taking advantage of defenses, especially Warren.

The expensive option is Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo ($10,900) and Donte DiVincenzo ($5,600). There is a good chance this pairing will cause a blowout against the Nets.

NBA DFS 8-4-20 DraftKings Value Picks

Six Game Slate

  • Rockets (-4.5) @ Blazers – 242.5 over/under
  • Mavericks (-6) @ Kings – 236.5
  • Suns @ Clippers (-9) – 230.5
  • Nets @ Bucks (-18.5) – 229
  • Magic (-1.5) @ Pacers – 225.5
  • Celtics (-3.5) @ Heat – 220

Point Guard

Aaron Holiday, Indiana Pacers – $5,100

Malcolm Brogdon is dealing with a neck injury, and the team is using kid gloves with Victor Oladipo, which lays the foundation for Holiday to get more playing time.

Holiday walked away with a double-double (15 points and 10 assists)) in his first game with Brogdon out and scored 17 points in his second game without Oladipo and Brogdon.

Shooting Guard

Tim Hardaway Jr., Dallas Mavericks – $6,100

Hardaway is averaging 22 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists this season. Plus, he has a .778 True Shooting percentage against the Kings.

Hardaway has been aggressive in rebounding since the restart, but his scoring has been inconsistent. He scored two points in his previous game, which means many people will avoid him.

Take advantage of recency bias.

Small Forward

Carmelo Anthony, Portland Trail Blazers – $5,700

The resurrection of Carmelo Anthony continues during the NBA restart.

He is averaging 17 points, five rebounds, and one assist since the restart.

Anthony is averaging 12 points and 12.5 rebounds against Houston this season.

The Rockets are allowing 41.8 points per game to forwards this year.

Power Forward

Robert Covington, Houston Rockets – $7,100

The Portland Trail Blazers allow the most fantasy points to power forwards (52.7) this season.

Covington is a power forward that can do it all. He shoots three-pointers, is aggressive on the glass, and dishes out some dimes.

Center

Daniel Theis, Boston Celtics – $4,900

Since the restart, Theis is averaging 10 points, seven assists, and four rebounds, not too bad for a lane clogger.

Boston is going to rely on Theis to keep Bam Adebayo off the glass. Theis should walk away with double-digit rebounds and possibly a double-double if he gets enough buckets.

Guard

Duncan Robinson, Miami Heat – $5,100

Robinson shoots 44.7 percent from three-point range and averages 11.2 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in second games in back-to-backs.

Forward

Garrett Temple, Brooklyn Nets – $5,800

Most of the Nets perimeter players are dealing with injuries, Joe Harris (back), Caris LeVert (thigh), and Jamal Crawford hasn’t played.

Temple averaged 12.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, and three assists in games where he played 30-plus minutes.

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.
