NBA GPP Cheat Sheet

Prices listed are Fanduel unless otherwise noted.

 My NBA articles will mostly focus on Fanduel lineup construction since besides center, you need to play two at each position. The players recommended are usually still good plays on DraftKings unless the pricing is drastically different. Also, many players on DraftKings have dual position eligibility or may be listed at a different position. I will try to mention if there is a specific good play on DK based on price or position eligibility. The players listed are in no particular order, as sometimes I am giving choices to help build your lineups at all price points.


Point Guard

Russell Westbrook – $10900 – Had a triple double last game with only 10 points scored. He will score more tonight.

Chris Paul – $9400 – Has been playing very well. Four straight games over 43 Fanduel points and two of those four over 57 fantasy points.

Kyle Lowry – $8300 – The Nets are second worst in DVP over the last five games.

Rajon Rondo – $6000 – Like the upside for tournaments.

Damian Lillard – $9500 – Prefer Paul, but can get behind Lillard as well.

Value/Punt Plays – Tyler Johnson $4700, Ricky Rubio $4900, Andrew Harrison $4500


Shooting Guard

James Harden – $11300 – Can still hit his ceiling even with Paul playing so well.

Gary Harris – $6400 – The Pelicans have allowed the most Fanduel points over the last five and ten games versus the shooting guard position.

Khris Middleton – $7800 – Good floor, would like him to hit his ceiling.

Victor Oladipo – $9600 – Back under $10k, still has the same ceiling as Harden at this point.

Nicholas Batum – $6000 – Good price still for his possible ceiling games of 50+.

Value/Punt Plays – Alec Burks $4200, E’twaun Moore $4800, Malcolm Brogden $4900, Jeremy Lamb $4600


Small Forward

Paul George – $7600 – Disappointed two days ago, I am willing to go back to the well.

Otto Porter – $7000 – Clippers third worst DVP at small forward over the last five games.

Kawhi Leonard – $6800 – Only needs 34 fantasy points to hit 5X. He can get that even if his minutes are being monitored.

Trevor Ariza – $5100 – Safe, but no real ceiling.

Giannis Antetokounmpo – They call him the Freak for a reason. Over 60 Fanduel points the last two games.

Value/Punt Plays – Sam Dekker $4300, David Nwaba $4600, Joe Ingles $4700


Power Forward

Ben Simmons – $9200 – Price is down to match his recent play. Still like the ceiling.

LaMarcus Aldrige – $7900 – Price is also down, due to Leonard being back most likely which makes sense. Little lower ceiling due to this but still like him tonight.

Serge Ibaka – $6500 – Don’t like the price jump, but still playable.

Carmelo Anthony – $6500 – GPP play only, risky but has upside.

Jayson Tatum – $5700 – Favorite play priced under $6k.

Value/Punt Plays – Ryan Anderson $4000, Kenneth Faried $4700, Trey Lyles $4300



Andre Drummond – $9400 – Didn’t disappoint last night with over 50 Fanduel points. Always like playing centers versus the Pacers.

Marc Gasol – $8300 – The Hawks have the worst DVP versus centers over the last five games.

Steven Adams – $6900 – Safe floor, though doesn’t have the ceiling of a Drummond or Gasol.

Clint Capela – $7400 – The Spurs have been great against the center the past five games. I think Capela can break through though with the focus on Paul and Harden.

Rudy Gobert – $7000 – Price is still deflated since coming back from injury. Think he can hit 6X tonight.

Value/Punt Plays – Marcin Gortat $4500
