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

Jamal Murray – $6000 – Favorite if paying down

Elfrid Payton – $8100 – Favorite if paying up

Eric Bledsoe – $7300

Kemba Walker – $8700

Khris Dunn – $6700 – Good mid-priced option

Value/Punt Plays – Reggie Jackson $5800, De’Aron Fox $4800 or George Hill $4500


Shooting Guard

Victor Oladipo – $9300 – Favorite overall

Will Barton – $7200

Gary Harris – $6900 – Tonight I like both Harris and Barton

Khris Middleton – $7600

Justin Holiday – $5500 – Favorite if paying down

Value/Punt Plays – Avery Bradley $5300, Buddy Hield $4800, J.J. Barea $4900, Malcolm Brogden $4700


Small Forward

LeBron James – Goudsaab’s call of the day, I like it

Kevin Durant – If not paying up for Lebron, or get them both in for unique lineup construction

Jonathan Simmons – $6100 – Price is getting up there to match his play, but no Evan Fournier

Rudy Gay – $6300 – I could go him or Simmons at that price

Value/Punt Plays – Andre Iguodola $4900, JaKarr Sampson $4200, Bojan Bogdanovic $4800


Power Forward

Aaron Gordon – $9200 – If not playing Vucevic at center

LaMarcus Aldridge – $8200

Tobias Harris – $6600 – It’s a Harris night (he says in a whisper)

Thad Young – $6200 – Really like if Myles Turner is out

Zach Randolph – $6700 – When he gets 30+ minutes he dominates

Value/Punt Plays – Serge Ibaka $5100, Domantas Sabonis $4800, Jeff Green $4500, Marvin Williams $4400



Nikola Vucevic – $8400 – Favorite overall

DeMarcus Cousins – $12000 – I am only paying up if Davis is out

Andre Drummond – $9600 – Good spot in up pace game

Kevin Love – $8000 – The Pacers are no good against the center, prefer him if MylesTurner plays

Value/Punt Plays – Robin Lopez $5200, Pau Gasol $5900
