Fuego Steve’s NBA Cheat Sheet 12/7/17


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

Russell Westbrook – $11500 – Short slate, though may not need him to win with other high-priced studs on the slate.

Lonzo Ball – $6600 – Risky, but good upside tonight.

Chris Paul – $8300 or Spencer Dinwiddie – $7200

Value/Punt Plays – Mikes James $4400, Tyler Ulis $4900, Ricky Rubio $5000


Shooting Guard

Bradley Beal – $8600 – Big game the other night and in great spot versus the Suns

James Harden – $11500 – Tough choice tonight between him and Russell.

Donovan Mitchell – $7500 – Save some money off the above two.

Value/Punt Plays – Jordan Clarkson $4500, Andre Roberson $4400, JJ Redick $5700


Small Forward

Otto Porter – $7100 – Overall favorite at the position.

TJ Warren – $8100 – Second favorite option.

DeMarre Carroll – $5800 – Good savings off the above two with upside.

Value/Punt Plays – Josh Jackson $4600, Joe Harris $3800, PJ Tucker $3700


Power Forward

Ben Simmons – $10500 – Deciding who to pay up for tonight is the hard part.

Carmelo Anthony – $6900 – Like the upside versus the Nets.

Markieff Morris $4800 – Good value, good overall play.

Value/Punt Plays – Julius Randle $4700, Marquese Chris $3700



Joel Embid – $10800 – Clearly best option if you can afford him.

Steven Adams – $6900 – If not paying up for Embid, I am going Adams.

Clint Capela – $7500 – Still producing even with Paul back.

Value/Punt Plays – Tyler Zeller $3800, Brook Lopez $4500, Marcin Gortat $4800
