DraftKings DFS showdown picks for tonight’s (May 29, 2021) NBA playoff game 3 between the Memphis Grizzlies and Utah Jazz
Welcome all. These are my NBA DraftKings Showdown picks for the Jazz at Grizzlies opening round playoff game 3. The game takes place tonight, Saturday May 29th, airing on ESPN at 9:30PM ET. This first round 2021 NBA playoff series is tied 1-1.
I went back and forth between doing straight up showdown picks and showdown tourney picks. I’m just sticking with my favorite picks overall, and I’ll mention my thoughts about ownership and whatever else.
Jazz at Grizzlies DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick
Mike Conley, Jazz PG/SG ($8,000)
Conley is averaging 50.75 DK FPPG over the first two playoff games. That’s even more than Ja Morant, who is $1,400 more and will likely be much higher owned in the captain spot.
As far as the other top players for captain, I also like Ruby Gobert and Morant. And I’d only go with Donovan Mitchell and Jonas Valanciunas as tourney plays.
Royce O’Neale, Jazz SF/PF ($4,800)
I picked Royce for game one, but I was a game early. He scored 30 DK PTS in game two and has now played over 34 minutes in each playoff game. He shot 4-6 from three, that probably won’t happen again here. But he should be good for around 20 DK FPTS.
Grayson Allen, Grizzlies SG/SF ($3,600)
Allen has only scored a combined 12 DK FPTS over the first two playoff games. He’s shot just 2-10 overall, but he’s played at least 19 minutes in those games. This one is a tourney play, his ownership should be low and maybe he’ll heat up and hit a bunch of 3’s.
Some other players I like just for tourneys are Joe Ingles, Desmond Bane and Tyus Jones.
Disclaimer Thing- I’m no expert, I’m not even a writer. But I enjoy doing these and sometimes I get things right.
