NBA GPP Plays 10/20/17

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. These are my favorite plays at each position and maybe a value play or two.

Got busy today, here are my favorite plays at each position, will try and fill in commentary later. Today may be a good day to go balanced as opposed to stars and scrubs. But can probably do either with this big slate.
