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

John Wall – $9500 – I don’t think I am paying up for Wall tonight. If you can afford him, highest ceiling at the position.

Rajon Rondo – $6000 – He’s in a lot of my lineups based on price.

Eric Bledsoe – $7100 – I have a few shares.

De’Aron Fox $4200 and Frank Mason $4200 – Value plays of the night at the position. I would hedge if you can afford it.



Shooting Guard

Khris Middleton – $7800 – Good upside, but not sure I am paying up for shooting guard tonight.

Bradley Beal – $8400 – See above.

JJ Redick – $5600 – The price I like tonight.

Value/Punt Plays – Dwayne Wade $4800, Bogdan Bogdanovic $4700, E’Twaun Moore $4600



Small Forward

LeBron James – $12000

The Freak – $12300 – I think you may need him or Lebron tonight to win. Tough call.

Kelly Oubre – $4600 – Pairing him with one of the above if not squeezing them both in.

Value/Punt Plays – Darius Miller $3500 and Dante Cunningham $3600 are punt plays.



Power Forward

Ben Simmons – $9900 – Find him in a lot of my lineups.

Anthony Davis – $11200 – Might be first time I have recommended him all year. Like him over Boogie tonight.

Zach Randolph – $7000 – Rested last game so should be good to go. Tough matchup, but good ceiling.

Dario Saric – $6600 – Been playing well, good price.

Value/Punt Plays – Jeff Green $4600, Mike Scott $4500, Markieff Morris $4600




Joel Embid – $11500 – Well rested and should dominate against the Kings.

Willie Cauley-Stein – $6000 – Savings off the big boys tonight.

Kevin Love – $8000 – Favorite play at center tonight taking price in to consideration.

Value/Punt Plays – Marcin Gortat $4300
