The Best Bang For Your Buck in NBA DFS: 12/10/21

The Best Bang For Your Buck in NBA DFS- 12:10:21

Point Guards:

1) Chris Paul $8,300 vs. Phoenix (19th)
2) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander $8,200 vs. Los Angeles Lakers (30th)
3) De’Aaron Fox $7,900 at Charlotte (16th)
4) Malcolm Brogdon $8,100 vs. Dallas (5th)
5) Trae Young $10,000 vs. Brooklyn (18th)
6) James Harden $11,200 at Atlanta (14th)
7) Russell Westbrook $10,200 at Oklahoma City (7th)
8) Jrue Holiday $7,900 at Houston (10th)
9) Dennis Schroder $6,500 at Phoenix (8th)
10) Tyrese Haliburton $6,100 at Charlotte (16th)

The Assist: Chris Paul remains the maestro of the Suns’ offense. Devin Booker is likely out again, and Paul will take on even more of the offensive burden. The Lakers have not stopped anyone on the perimeter all season long. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander should torment the Lakers Friday night. De’Aaron Fox is our bargain play at just $7,900–you can afford to pay up elsewhere.

Shooting Guards:

1) Brandon Ingram $8,700 vs. Detroit (27th)
2) Darius Garland $7,300 at Minnesota (17th)
3) Fred VanVleet $8,800 vs. New York Knicks (13th)
4) Cade Cunningham $7,500 vs. New Orleans (4th)
5) Josh Giddey $6,400 vs. Los Angeles Lakers (30th)
6) Kelly Oubre Jr. $7,800 vs. Sacramento (9th)
7) Caris LeVert $5,800 vs. Dallas (11th)
8) Gary Trent Jr. $6,100 vs. New York Knicks (13th)
9) Marcus Smart $6,000 at Phoenix (8th)
10) Lugentz Dort $5,500 vs. Los Angeles Lakers (9th)

The Assist: The shooting guard position is by far the thinnest position on the slate. I like playing Brandon Ingram here against a Pistons defense that will struggle to match up with him. No Collin Sexton makes Darius Garland a must-play until his price tag rises. Fred VanVleet isn’t a sexy call but will produce across the board against the Knicks.

Small Forwards:

1) Luka Doncic $11,000 at Indiana (21st)
2) Anthony Edwards $8,400 vs. Cleveland (8th)
3) Khris Middleton $7,300 at Houston (27th)
4) Scottie Barnes $7,600 vs. New York Knicks (30th)
5) Miles Bridges $7,700 vs. Sacramento (9th)
6) Gordon Hayward $7,300 vs. Sacramento (9th)
7) Buddy Hield $5,300 at Charlotte (30th)
8) Harrison Barnes $5,400 at Charlotte (30th)
9) Eric Gordon $5,500 vs. Milwaukee (5th)
10) Tim Hardaway Jr. $5,600 at Indiana (10th)

The Assist: We recommended this strategy the other day, and we are sticking to it. Luka Doncic rises above the rest of the class of small forward eligible players. Anthony Edwards has been and will continue to be a mainstay in our lineups. Khris Middleton remains a steal at only $7,300.

Power Forwards:

1) Kevin Durant $10,800 at Atlanta (24th)
2) Jayson Tatum $9,900 at Phoenix (5th)
3) Domantas Sabonis $9,700 vs. Dallas (20th)
4) LeBron James $9,800 at Oklahoma City (29th)
5) Kristaps Porzingis $8,000 at Indiana (17th)
6) Jerami Grant $7,400 at New Orleans (1st)
7) John Collins $7,200 vs. Brooklyn (14th)
8) Al Horford $6,700 at Phoenix (2nd)
9) PJ Washington $6,600 vs. Sacramento (8th)
10) Lauri Markkanen $5,700 at Minnesota (22nd)

The Assist: Kevin Durant can destroy the slate, so I don’t mind paying up for him on this slate against a Hawks defense that cannot stop him. Jayson Tatum is a steady option at $9,900. Given the depth at the Center position on this slate, we recommend playing Domantas Sabonis down at power forward.


1) Giannis Antetokounmpo $10,900 at Houston (4th)
2) Anthony Davis $9,600 at Oklahoma City (29th)
3) Julius Randle $9,400 at Toronto (11th)
4) Karl-Anthony Towns $10,300 vs. Cleveland (17th)
5) Christian Wood $9,300 vs. Milwaukee (9th)

The Assist: We mentioned the depth at center. Giannis’ eligibility at the center position makes him a dominant option. Anthony Davis should be close to 100% for his match-up against the Thunder. Julius Randle should obliterate a Raptors frontcourt.
