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.


Tough night tonight on huge slate. Lots of places you can go. Will be in NBA chat from 6:30-7:30 to help answer questions. Will list some of my favorite plays.


Point Guard

Kemba Walker – $2000 savings from the high-priced point guards

Goran Dragic – like the matchup versus Wall

Dennis Schroder

Kyle Lowry

Jrue Holiday

Jeff Teague – don’t mind the matchup versus the Spurs

Tyler Johnson – if you want to pay down


Shooting Guard

Jordan Clarkson or KCP – both in good spots versus  Philly

DeMar Derozen – good play if not going Lowry

Tyreke Evans – still going strong, price is rising

C.J. McCollum – good price

Tim Hardaway Jr. – feeling it right now

J.R. Smith – punt play

J.J. Reddick – if paying down

Small Forward

LeBron James – he’s Lebron

Robert Covington

Evan Fournier

Brandon Ingram

OG Anunoby – punt play

Paul George – on fire past two games, especially like if no Carmelo


Power Forward

Kyle Kuzma – favorite mid-priced, risky, but upside

Dario Saric – punt play

Zach Randolph – good price still

Taj Gibson – if paying down

Kristaps Porzingas – like the ceiling

LaMarcus Alrdridge – safest play



Marc Gasol – favorite play

Dewayne Dedmon – if paying down

Andre Drummond – good floor, good ceiling

Kevin Love – makes me nervous

Joel Embid – if he gets over 30 minutes again will crush

Dwight Howard
