Fuego Steve’s NBA GPP Cheatsheet 12/2/17


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

Damian Lillard – Highest upside of any PG on the slate.

Eric Bledsoe – Like him slightly more than Lonzo Ball tonight.

Value/Punt Plays – Rajon Rando, Jamal Murray, Reggie Jackson


Shooting Guard

Deepest position of the night

Will Barton/Gary Harris – Think you can’t go wrong with either Nuggets shooting guards.

Jrue Holiday – With no A.D. tonight, his usage should get an uptick.

J.J. Redick – Definetly a GPP play only for me, but can get those 30+ point games.

Value/Punt Plays – E’Twaun Moore, J.R. Smith


Small Forward

The Freak – Such a weak position tonight, feel like he or Lebron is a must play, but not fitting in my lineups if going Simmons and Cousins.

Lebron James – See above.

Brandon Ingram – The best lower option, could pair him with Robert Covington and fade the two big boys. 

Value/Punt Plays – Dillon Brooks, Juan Hernangomez, Stanley Johnson


Power Forward

Ben Simmons – Good spot versus the Pistons.

Julius Randle – Like the value, like the upside.

Tobias Harris – Due for one of his big games.

Value/Punt Plays – Julius Randle, Noah Vonleh



DeMarcus Cousins – No Davis tonight, should get huge usage.

Andre Drummond – Over $1000 less expensive than Boogie or Embid.

Kevin Love – Only really like if Marc Gasol is out. He’s questionable at this point.

Value/Punt Plays – Mason Plumlee, Brook Lopez, but don’t love either.
