NBA DFS 9-2-20 FanDuel Picks

NBA DFS 9-2-20 FanDuel Picks

Welcome back to the sixth installment of my NBA DFS FanDuel Picks (9-2-20).

The NBA Playoffs are heating up and last night in Game 7 the Denver Nuggets and the Utah Jazz capped off a series that did not disappoint. Jamal Murray scored more than 90 points in games five and six to force Game 7.

The return of a healthy(?) Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets might give them the firepower they need to get past the Oklahoma City Thunder

With there being fewer games on each slate, it is important you find those players that can have a good game and won't cost you very much. Players like Danilo Gallinari who is averaging over 16 points a game. On August 31st, Gallinari was only priced at $5,500 and scored over 38 points on FanDuel. Gallo was in all the first place lines and made a lot of people money.

As we get deeper into the NBA Playoffs it is going to get harder to find those gems. But don't get discouraged because they are out there. Although there are only two games on the slate for Wednesday I have four players that could give your lineups an advantage.

  • Miami Heat @ Milwaukee Bucks (-5) - 220.5 over/under
  • Oklahoma City Thunder @ Houston Rockets (-6) - 218 o/u

Jae Crowder, SF, Miami Heat ($4,700)

Crowder is a player that is going to fill up the box score. He is not a flashy player, but he does a lot for this Heat team. Crowder is a solid defender and can add a steal or two each game.

His postseason numbers are not going to jump off the page going for almost 10 points and seven rebounds a game, but when Jimmy Butler is driving and kicks out to Crowder in the corner he hits that at a 35% clip.

FanDuel Outlook

Although there are only two games on the schedule, there are still some high priced players lacing up. If you want to have as many of them in your lineup you are going to have to draft guys like Crowder. He is $1,300 cheaper than Eric Gordon, and averaging four more points on FanDuel. If you want to pair him with a player like Giannis Antetokounmpo, then you are already off to a good start.

Dennis Schroder, SG, Oklahoma City Thunder ($6,000)

Schroder is playing well during the playoffs. He has been instant offense when he comes off the bench scoring over 18 points a game. He may not be shooting well from behind the arc, but that is not stopping him from putting the ball in the basket.

Schroder is averaging over 30 minutes a game, so you don't have to worry about him have long stints on the bench.

FanDuel Outlook

Shooting Guard is the most expensive position on FanDuel. When you find a player like Schroder for under $7,000 put him in your lineup. Schroder is $1,100 cheaper than his teammate Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. If the Thunder hope to move on, they are going to need Schroder on his A-game.

Jeff Green, PF, Houston Rockets ($5,100)

Green gives the Rockets life when he comes off the bench. He's great from behind the arc hitting at over 43%. Green is a swiss army knife playing three positions on the floor.

He didn't have a great scoring performance in his last game, but those are few and far between. Green is averaging over 13 points and seven rebounds coming off the bench and he is trusted to play the final minutes of the game.

FanDuel Outlook

Green is cheaper than his teammate Robert Covington by $1,200. I love putting him in my lineups because it allows me to go big somewhere else. Green is going to be on the floor a lot in Game 7 for the Rockets. With the lack of Power Forwards today Green might be found in a lot of winning lineups.

P.J. Tucker, C, Houston Rockets ($4,800)

To say that the Rockets like to shoot the three-ball is an understatement. Tucker is a guy that fits in with what Mike D'Antoni wants to do. Tucker is almost automatic with that corner three shooting it at 41%. Because he likes to park himself behind the arc it allows players like James Harden and Russell Westbrook to get to the basket.

FanDuel OutLook

Let's be honest with ourselves, there is no Center on today's slate that I'm looking at to give me a bunch of points. I'm looking for a player that can get me 25 to 30 points max. Tucker is $900 cheaper than Brook Lopez, and he factors in the offense more than Steven Adams. In Monday's games against OKC, Tucker had 32 points on FanDuel, and with this bunch that is all I'm looking for.

These are my FanDuel picks for today. I feel these players are going to put me over the top and win some money. Good luck with your tournaments, and thanks for stopping by.
