Real Dream Team NBA – Schedule Analysis – Week 20

By
Updated: March 9, 2020

It’s really starting to get to the pointy end of the season for RDT NBA coaches. We are down to the final 8 in Eliminator, and finals are set to kick off in your Leagues. Well done to all those who are up the top of their league and challenging for a championship.


Schedule Breakdown

8 Game Teams

The 8 game teams are as follows:

Utah.

Utah, that’s it. Just one lousy stinking 8 game team. Rudy Gobert is as close to a ‘must have’ as you can get, and you can also look at Donovan Mitchell, but you will likely get more value out of a good 7 game player than you will with Mitchell over 8 games. Even though he is averaging 21.7Fppg this season, he scored 22, 22 and then just 4 Fantasy points in Week 19 (one game to come). You can’t afford to have someone scoring 4 points in a game at this time of year.


Oh Captain, My Captain!

Last Week’s Selection – Rudy Gobert

Predicted Avg – 36

Actual Scores – 41, 34, 21, (one game remaining)

There are only two standout options for Captains this week – Nikola Jokic and Rudy Gobert. The Nuggets have a tough week with a home game against Milwaukee, before road games against Dallas, San Antonio and the LA Lakers. Only the Spurs look like an easy matchup for the Joker, with Aldridge likely out. In the other games, he will likely be defended by Giannis, Porzingas and AD. He is good enough to still score well against them however, and they should be pretty high scoring games.

Gobert on the other hand looks to have a slightly easier schedule. The Jazz play at home against Toronto, then away at Oklahoma City and finish with two home games against New Orleans and Memphis. It will be a tougher week than last week, but I will still back him in to be the top scoring player in week 20.

Alternatively, you can run with a 3 game player like Giannis, Harden, LeBron, AD or Beal.
