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.

 Look for possible updates later or hit me in slack chat with questions.


Point Guard

Shabazz Napier – $4500 – We got nervous when we found out he wasn’t starting last night. He still got nearly 10X. Going back to the well again

Russell Westbrook – $11500 – Yes again, even on 12 game slate he is good play.

Tyler Johnson – $6000 – Dragic still out.

Jamal Murray – $6400 – Like the matchup versus Golden State.

Lonzo Ball – $7500 – Need that ceiling game to hit value though.

Value/Punt Plays – Napier $4500, George Hill $4900


Shooting Guard

Victor Oladipo – $9600 – Favorite if you can afford him.

Wayne Ellington – $3800 – Got him right yesterday, unfortunately due to injury to Dion Waiters.

Tyreke Evans – $8000 – Especially if Gasol is out.

Lou Williams – $7000 – Back to the well tonight, though don’t expect 52 again.

Andrew Wiggins – $5800 – Good price point.

Value/Punt Plays – Elllington $3800, Bogdan Bogdanovic $4600, Buddy Hield $4500


Small Forward

Pretty much the same guys I recommended last night with a few exceptions

Jonathan Simmons – $6500 – Price dropped $100, thanks Fanduel.

Kevin Durant – $11600 – The Freak is out gives him highest ceiling at position.

Josh Richardson – $6000 – Came through last night, like more if Waiters out.

Jimmy Butler – $8900 – GPP play for the ceiling.

Value/Punt Plays – Dillon Brooks $3600, Torrey Craig $4000, Josh Jackson $4400, E’Twaun Moore $4600


Power Forward

Kyle Kuzma – $6800 – Two straight games over 50 Fanduel points.

Thaddeus Young – $5900 – Favorite including price.

Derrick Favors – $5700 – Good matchup versus Melo.

LaMarcus Aldridge – $8300 – No Leonard tonight makes him better play.

Value/Punt Plays – Frank Kaminsky $4100, Ed Davis $3800, Jordan Mickey $4200



Nikola Jokic – $8300 – Big game last night. Think he can repeat.

Boogie – $11000 – No one on Miami can stop him.

DeAndre Jordan – $7900 – If no Gasol, really like him again.

Al Horford – $7300 – Good matchup versus the Bulls.
