NBA GPP Cheat Sheet 12/29/17

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

Westbrook – $11500 – No Paul George tonight, usage should go up even higher than normal.

Tyler Johnson – $5900 – No Dion Waters, he has been producing in his place.

Goran Dragic – $6600 – Usage bump with no Waiters, good matchup versus Brooklyn.

John Wall – $8600 – Still good price for his ceiling.

Darren Collison – $6300 – Put up 32 without Victor Oladipo last game. Always risky though.

Value/Punt Plays – Dennis Smith Jr. $4700, Cory Joseph $4200

 

Shooting Guard

James Harden – $11800 – Like better if no Chris Paul

Wayne Ellington – $4600 – Favorite value play, also decent play with no Waiters.

Justin Holiday – $5200 – Like paying down for shooting guard tonight with or without Harden.

Devin Booker – $7800 – Favorite high priced, maybe even more than Harden for the value.

Bradley Beal – $8100 – As Goudsaab said, prefer him if Paul does not play because of matchup versus Harden. Still think he is fine play.

Value/Punt Plays – Ellington $4600, Andre Roberson $4300, Josh Hart $4400

 

Small Forward

Brandon Ingram – $7300 – Forwards against the Clippers in play.

Lance Stephenson – $5800 – Made the mistake of not playing him last game. I won’t make the same mistake twice.

Harrison Barnes – $6500 – We like using small forwards versus the Pelicans.

Otto Porter – $6700 – Hopefully he can have two good games in a row. Always love the ceiling.

Kevin Durant – $11300 – Think he will be the lowest owned super star of the night.

Value/Punt Plays – E’Twaun Moore $4600, Kelly Oubre $4400, Bojan Bogdanovic $4900

 

Power Forward

Zach Randolph – $5800 – Pace up games he usually plays well.

A.D. – $11900 – Good spot versus Dallas big men.

Carmelo Anthony – $6100 – Should see usage increase with no George.

Draymond Green – $8300 – Haven’t been playing him much, good floor.

Thad Young – $5700 – Hopefully gets more of the ball tonight with no Oladipo.

Value/Punt Plays – Jordan Bell $4900, Markieff Morris $4900, Jerami Grant $3500

 

Center

DeAndre Jordan – $7700 – Like him versus the Lakers big men.

DeMarcus Cousins – $11000 – Can’t go wrong with him tonight versus the Mavs.

Steven Adams – $7400 – Should also see more usage with no George and has been playing well.

Willie Cauley-Stein – $7000 – Love the way he has been playing off the bench.

Value/Punt Plays – Marcin Gortat $4400, Robin Lopez $5000
