NBA DFS Picks: The SuperDraft Starting Five | August 14th | Chris Boucher

Eric Lindquist



Pretty ecstatic with the picks from yesterday, as Boban Marjanovic was superb chalk, and Frank Mason III/Frank Jackson both went off at low ownership. We’re going to try and duplicate that high-multiplier magic with my starting five NBA DFS picks over at SuperDraft today — two guards, two forwards and a center. Let’s finish this regular season with a bang!

NBA DFS SuperDraft Starting Five


Not a pure 2x multiplier, but 1.95x is close enough for the allotment of minutes that could be in store with Clemons in the late-night hammer. He’s shown bursts of productivity whenever he’s gotten court time, sporting a 1.08 FP/Min rate on the year and a 23.3% usage rate. Not sure how hard Mike D’Antoni wants to push his regular starters with news of Russell Westbrook’s quad injury heading into the playoffs, so this could sneakily turn into a smash spot for the young point guard.


If you found your way off of Aaron Holiday chalk and onto Edmond Sumner, you were rewarded on Wednesday. He doesn’t have the rates of Clemons (only a .85 FP/Min producer with a 17.9% usage rate), but guaranteed run is as good as gold today. Pay careful attention to the starting lineup for their 4 p.m. EST game against the Heat to hopefully get a sense of what Nate MacMillan plans to do with his usual rotation players (all starters but Malcolm Brogdon are out already). I feel fine taking a chance on Sumner either way, but especially so if he’s starting in the backcourt with McConnell.


I don’t know much, but I know Nick Nurse hates giving RHJ run. That can be worked to our advantage on a day like today, as the irrelevant games like this are where guys coaches have little-to-no intention of playing in the postseason can shine. I’m not even going to try and project his minutes, as they could range from mid-teens to the thirties and I wouldn’t be surprised either way. But at his time in Brooklyn and now in Toronto, he’s been a guy who could produce at a decent clip when called upon… he just never seems to get called upon. Hoping we see that change today.

Going to another Raptor with the former Piston. With every starter sitting for Toronto, feels imperative to take some shots on high-minutes from some of their deep-bench options. He tends to eat up usage when on the floor, and sports a 1.14 FP/Min in his *extremely* limited action this year. He’s done me well in the past, so I’m happy to chase a game out of him here.


Boucher has been on a tear in the Raptors lately, putting up 46.25 and 61.75 SuperDraft points in two of his past three. I have no idea what his minutes could be, but he gets it done at a high rate whenever he’s out there. And at a larger multiplier than stud Nikola Jokic, the only center stud still presumably playing, I’d rather lean with Boucher in this spot.
