The NBA Rundown – FanDuel & DraftKings NBA DFS Picks – August 30, 2020 (8/30/20)

Welcome to the NBA Rundown for FanDuel and DraftKings contests on Sunday, August 30, 2020.

Core Plays

Top Stud

Jamal Murray ($8,600 FD/$8,600 DK)– This is most likely going to come back to bite me in the ass as Murray is bound to cool off at some point. With that being said at his salary if you don’t ride the hot hand and he doesn’t cool off you are going to be staring at the bottom of the leaderboard. Murray really has been that good this series, especially over the past two games. In those games, Murray is averaging 46 points, 9.5 rebounds, 7.5 assists, and a steal+block. Murray has at least 66 fantasy points in each of those games and has at least 55 fantasy points in three of the five games this series.

Top Mid-Tier

Mike Conley ($6,700 FD/$6,600 DK)– Since his return to the NBA Bubble, Conley has been excellent. In his three games, Conley is averaging 23.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 1.3 steals. Conley has at least 33 fantasy points in each of those games and there is no reason to believe he doesn’t hit that mark again in this one.

Top Value

Maxi Kleber ($5,400 FD/$5,200 DK)– Kristaps Porzingis is out for at least the rest of this series may be longer if the Mavs can advance. With Porzingis out Kleber has stepped up his game. In the past two games with Zingis out, Kleber is averaging 9.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 2.5 steals+blocks. Kleber has at least 26 fantasy points in each of those games. While there is certainly a chance that Kleber puts up a dud of game as he did in game two I personally don’t see it happening as he did have 23 fantasy points in game one and in the seeding game against the Clippers.
