NBA DFS 8/14 Picks and Lineup Prediction: Last day of the seeding round offers teams a chance to iron any last prevailing issues ahead of next week’s playoffs.
Ahead of the final day of the seeding round, teams have made it clear what their approach today is going to be. With all the mathups having been decided across both the conferences for next week’s encounters, today’s games will be approached without the slightest bit of importance.
It’s a narrative which has seen teams already announce a barrage of rested and injured names for today’s impending showdowns. It made picking out a viable DFS team for the day a tricky affair to navigate, one which saw us engage in gruelling deliberations to pick out the most ideal side for the seeding round’s closing day.
NBA DFS 8/14 Point Guard
Malcolm Brogdon, 7,400
Although he’s not going to play a majority of today’s outing, Brogdon should end up getting over 20 minutes. With potentially only 9 players being available for Miami Heat for this, Indiana Pacers will rely on their point guard whose returning from injury to control the attacking gameplan for the side.
T.J. McConnell, 4,200
Our second pick in this ambit will feature a pick from Indiana Pacers once again. With the side set to heavily rest players on the day, T.J. McConnell will be once again asked to fill in and given the manner in which he’s slotted into his side’s rotations to pull off quick break points, he makes for an instant pick.
NBA DFS 8/14 Shooting Guard
James Harden, 11,500
He might end up playing only half of today’s scrimmage but that doesn’t refrain us from opting for Harden as our shooting guard. With Westbrook out due to injury, Harden has to become a must have pick with the player always thriving in Westbrook’s absence as he’s asked to shoot triples and come up with clutch points.
Hamidou Diallo, 4,300
Diallo has emerged as a steady contender inside the seeding round for his side. The player has utilised to shoot from both the corners and mid range region effectively to see him hold a high conversion rate when laying up triples for the side.
NBA DFS 8/14 Small Forward
Danuel House Jr.
The Rockets player has been consistent inside the bubble for the club. With his club set to dole out a relatively paper thin side, Danuel’s minutes look safe with the club turning to their small forward to use his versatile skill set and shoot field points with a high conversion rate.
NBA DFS 8/14 Power Forward
Darius Bazley, 5,400
The Oklahoma City Thunder power forward has been untenable across the last two weeks. The player has massively escalated his performances to see the return emerge as a pathbreaking period in his career with him registering 21 points and 9 boards the last time around.
Jerami Grant, 5,500
With Denver having little to play for today, Grant could easily make a place in the team’s playing 5 for the scrimmage. His 12 ppg make him an extremely strong contender for a place in our framework with the player utilising his floating jump points to pull off points in the paint at will.
NBA DFS 8/14 Centre
Kelly Olynyk, 5,500
With Miami Heat set to be potentially without the services of over 9 players today, the tenacious Kelly is set to remain untouched in the side’s starting rotations. And with 22.5 ppg inside the bubble along with winning the battle of the boards for the club, the centre makes for an immediate pick for us.
