NBA GPP Plays 1/2/18

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

Dennis Schroder – $7700 – Favorite overall for price.

Damian Lillard – $8900 – Assuming he is not restricted he is in a good spot.

Kemba Walker – $8000 – Could pair him with one of the above for different roster construction.

Value/Punt Plays – George Hill $4700, Tony Parker $4100, Frank Ntilikina $4700



Shooting Guard

Devin Booker – $8000 – Highest upside.

Kent Bazemore – $5800 – Favorite including price.

CJ McCollum – $7100 – Less ball handling with Lillard back and should open up shots.

Tyreke Evans – $9000 – Don’t like the price bump but always like his upside.

Value/Punt Plays – Dwayne Wade $4900, The Kings shooting guards, Marco Belinelli $4200



Small Forward

LeBron James – $11500 – Find me starting my lineups with him, especially if Kevin Love doesn’t play.

TJ Warren – $7500 – Tough to get him in with Lebron unless going down elsewhere.

Taurean Prince – $6000 – I guess I am liking Atlanta tonight.

Courtney Lee – $5700 – Should be matched up against Danny Green which I like.

Value/Punt Plays – Evan Turner $3700, MKG $4700, Kyle Anderson $4200


Power Forward

John Collins – $5900 – Yes, another Hawks player, might be my favorite of them all.

Blake Griffin – $9000 – Back to normal self it looks like and no minutes restriction.

Marquese Chriss – $5300 – Been playing well and his minutes have been creeping up.

Kristaps Porzingas – $9500 – Not my favorite high-priced player tonight, but I have no problem rostering him.

Zach Randolph – $5100 – Risky, but if he gets the minutes, he gets the points.

Value/Punt Plays – I don’t like the value at the position tonight on Fanduel. Maybe Jeff Green or Jae Crowder if no Love.



Marc Gasol $8200 or DeAndre Jordon $7500 – Could play either side of this matchup if you want.

Pau Gasol – $6200 – Check out his game logs before this last game. Impressive.

Jusuf Nurkic – $6500 – Been coming on strong as of late. Really like if no Love.

Dwight Howard – $8900 – Good spot tonight, the price is the only thing that bothers me.

Value/Punt Plays – Tyson Chandler $4500 – Only guy I would go to under $5000.
