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. These are my favorite plays at each position and maybe a value play or two. The players listed are in no particular order, as I am giving choices to help build your lineups.


Listen to podcast for myself and Lou’s best takes on the slate. Porzingas, Durant, and Horford out. Chandler doubtful. Payton in with no limits. We will be in chat from 6-7 to answer your questions



Point Guard

Steph Curry – get him in your lineups, his usage is outrageous with no KD

Kyrie Irving – pairing him with Curry will be popular tonight

Goran Dragic

Jeff Teague

Mike James – could go Jarrett Jack also if paying down, probably paying up though at the position


Shooting Guard

Klay Thompson – should get more usage with no Durant

Tim Hardaway Jr – think his usage goes way up with no Porzingas, watch the blowout though. Courtney Lee is another good option for the Knicks

Devin Booker – he’s Booker, highest ceiling on the slate at position

Marcus Smart – lower owned option at the position


Small Forward

Andre Iguodala – some usage increase with no KD

Evan Fournier – not as worried as blow out as Lou, can still have good game

Jaylen Brown – usage should increase with no Horford

Jimmy Butler – debating this one, still can’t find his place in offense. Probably fading him

T.J. Warren – probably higher ceiling than Butler at this point


Power Forward

Draymond Green – doesn’t get too much increase with no Durant. Just like him cuz I always do

Tobias Harris – always like him, you should know that by now

Jayson Tatum – should definitely see usage increase with no Horford

Marcus Morris – decent punt play with upside

James Johnson – the eternal debate, to play him or not to play him



Karl Anthony-Towns – we love to play centers versus Golden State

Andre Drummond – Hoping is less owned than KAT

Alex Len – Chandler is doubtful, like him a lot with no Tyson

Aaron Baynes – obligatory add to write up since he is starting with no Al Horford. Don’t love it though, prefer the above three
