Welcome to the NBA Rundown for FanDuel and DraftKings contests on Tuesday, September 1, 2020.
Jamal Murray ($9,400 FD/$9,700 DK)– I am going to continue to ride the hot hand in Murray as the Jazz don’t look like they have an answer for him. Murray has scored 36 points in four of the first six games including three straight games with at least 40 points. In those three games, Murray is averaging 47.33 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists. Murray has at least 60 fantasy points in each of those three games and has at least 50 fantasy points in five of the seven games he has faced the Jazz inside of the bubble.
Mike Conley ($6,600 FD/$6,800 DK)– Conley is another point guard that I have been using every game in this series as he is way too cheap for his production. In his four games in this series, after he missed the first two games due to the birth of his son, Conley is averaging 22.8 points, 2.5 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 1.6 blocks+steals. Conley has at least 33 fantasy points in each of those games and is averaging 35.64 fantasy points in the five games he has faced the Nuggets inside of the bubble.
Marc Gasol ($4,500 FD/$4,100 DK)– I know it is going to be hard to roster Gasol on FanDuel where you can only play one center but I feel you are better served spending up at other positions today than spending up for Nikola Jokic or Rudy Gobert who both have been average this series. Now, Gasol has also been average in the playoffs and wasn’t that great in game one with only 19.2 fantasy points in his 25 minutes of action but we did see a bigger game from Gasol earlier in the bubble against Boston and even if Gasol only gets you in the 20 fantasy point range he is going to pay off his salary. Also, remember this is more about being able to afford players at other positions than it is about Gasol having a huge game.
Today’s Cheat Sheets show anyone that I currently have over 35% exposure to on this slate.
