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

Rajon Rondo – $6000 – Uptick in usage with no A.D.

Austin Rivers – $6200 – Also seeing more usage with no Blake Griffin

Dennis Schroder – $8100 – Favorite higher priced option.

Eric Bledsoe – $6900 – Good spot versus Detroit.

Value/Punt Plays – Jamal Murray $5400, Reggie Jackson $5700, Tony Parker $3500


Shooting Guard

Klay Thompson – $6900 – Usage goes up with no Curry.

Victor Oladipo – $9400 – Expensive, but playing that way.

Gary Harris – $6700 – Harris over Barton again for me tonight.

Dwayne Wade – $6200 – Been playing like a young man again.

Both Holiday brothers are in play

Value/Punt Plays – Garrett Temple $4500, Kent Bazemore $5500, Danny Green $4500

Small Forward

Kevin Durant – $10,000 – Almost must play.

Jimmy Butler – $8900 – Second favorite option.

The Freak/Lebron – If you want to pivot off Durant for ownership percentages.

Rudy Gay – $6200 – One of the best mid-priced options.

Value/Punt Plays – Jonathan Simmons $5800, Andre Iguodola $4000, DeAndre Bembry $3800


Power Forward

Aaron Gordon – $8300 – Debating if he or Vucevic have better game. Think they both could go off.

Thaddeus Young – $6000 – Good mid-priced option.

Taj Gibson – $5700 – Keep going back to him and he keeps producing.

Zach Randolph – $5900 – Another guy who keeps producing and usually low owned.

Value/Punt Plays – Bobby Portis $4400, Daniel Theis $3500, Frank Kaminsky $4100



DeMarcus Couisins – $11300 – Get him in your lineup if you can afford him.

Nikola Vucevic – $8100 – Should dominate against Atlanta.

Andre Drummond – $9500 – No one on the Bucks can out rebound him.

Kevin Love – $8200 – I never seem to get him right but in good spot versus the Kings.

Value/Punt Plays – Aron Baynes $3700, Robin Lopez $5900, Mason Plumlee $5800
