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

Dennis Schroder – $8300 – Favorite overall for price tonight.

Russell Westbrook – $10800 – Trying to think of funny things to put every time I recommend him. Suggestions welcome.

Chris Paul – $8700 – Big game last time out, could be heating up.

Kemba Walker – $8700 – Good matchup versus Lonzo Ball and the Lakers.

Value/Punt Plays – Dejounte Murray $3600 or Patty Mills $4000, Jerryd Bayless $3900,  Ricky Rubio $4900

 

Shooting Guard

James Harden – $11200 – Might be a Harden day for me if I don’t fade him and Westbrook.

Dwayne Wade – $6100 – Last time I recommended and played him he busted. Don’t think he does tonight.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – $5900 – Good spot versus Charlotte.

C.J. McCollum – $6600 – See Dwayne Wade.

Value/Punt Plays – Kent Bazemore $5400, Eric Gordon $4800, J.J. Redick $5400, Alec Burks $5100

 

Small Forward

LeBron James – Can get it done back to back nights.

Rudy Gay – Usage should be high tonight and has been playing well.

Jonathan Simmons – $6100 – Ditto from two days ago… “Price is getting up there to match his play, but no Evan Fournier”

Courtney Lee $5900 – Ride him while he’s hot with no Hardaway.

Value/Punt Plays – DeAndre Bembry $4300, Josh Jackson  $4800, MKG – $5200

 

Power Forward

Ben Simmons – $10500 – Big floor, big ceiling.

LaMarcus Aldridge – $8200 – Lots of people resting for the Spurs, usage should be through the roof.

Kristaps Porzingas – $9100 – Still want to see the ceiling game before I go all in. Probably fading him.

Marvin Williams $4400 – Price hasn’t changed with no Kaminsky.

Value/Punt Plays – Williams $4400, Amir Johnson $3500, Jeff Green $4500

 

Center

Dwight Howard – $7800 – Favorite overall.

Clint Capela – $7300 – Savings off of Howard.

Nikola Vucevic – $8500 – Ride the hot hand and he put up 63 FD points last game versus the Hawks.

Kevin Love – $8000 – Should do well with no Embid tonight.

Value/Punt Plays – Robin Lopez $5200, Richaun Holmes $4300
