The Best Bang For Your Buck In NBA DFS: 12/15/21

The Best Bang For Your Buck In NBA DFS- 12:15:21

Point Guards:

1) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander $8,800 vs. New Orleans (28th)
2) Malcolm Brogdon $7,700 at Milwaukee (29th)
3) Jrue Holiday $7,500 vs. Indiana (22nd)
4) Jalen Brunson $6,700 vs. Dallas (30th)
5) Reggie Jackson $6,800 at Utah (13th)
6) De’Aaron Fox $8,000 vs. Washington (2nd)
7) Kyle Lowry $8,100 vs. Philadelphia (9th)
8) Cole Anthony $8,400 vs. Atlanta (7th)
9) Damian Lillard $9,900 vs. Memphis (10th)
10) Dejounte Murray $10,300 vs. Charlotte (20th)

The Assist: SGA is our top play at the point guard position. New Orleans should be no match for him. Malcolm Brogdon is still one of the best values on the slate at $7,700. Jrue Holiday is a bargain buy at $7,500.

Shooting Guards:

1) Darius Garland $7,900 vs. Houston (14th)
2) Tyler Herro $7,400 at Philadelphia (9th)
3) D’Angelo Russell $8,400 at Denver (26th)
4) Bradley Beal $8,500 at Sacramento (20th)
5) Donovan Mitchell $9,100 vs. Los Angeles Clippers (19th)
6) Brandon Ingram $9,200 at Oklahoma City (30th)
7) Kelly Oubre Jr. $8,200 at San Antonio (6th)
8) Terry Rozier $7,300 at San Antonio (6th)
9) Derrick White $7,200 vs. Charlotte (20th)
10) Caris LeVert $6,500 at Milwaukee (3rd)

The Assist: We have made the recommendation a couple of times, but Darius Garland at the shooting guard position offers a ton of upside for your DFS lineups. Tyler Herro does as well as you can get a lot of bang for your buck at a $7,400 price tag. D’Angelo Russell at shooting guard also makes sense against a Denver defense that struggles to stop penetration.

Small Forwards:

1) Khris Middleton $7,200 vs. Indiana (20th)
2) Josh Giddey $6,700 vs. New Orleans (27th)
3) Harrison Barnes $5,600 vs. Washington (13th)
4) Dillon Brooks $6,400 at Portland (29th)
5) Will Barton $6,800 vs. Minnesota (21st)
6) Anthony Edwards $8,300 at Denver (25th)
7) Miles Bridges $8,100 at San Antonio (6th)
8) Gordon Heyward $7,400 at San Antonio (6th)
9) Norman Powell $6,500 vs. Memphis (14th)
10) Franz Wagner $6,300 vs. Atlanta (27th)

The Assist: Keep an eye on the injury report, but if Khris Middleton is playing, he is the best point per play option at the small forward position. Josh Giddey keeps playing like a seasoned vet. Giddey should be about $1,000 more expensive than his $6,700 price. Harrison Barnes is a bargain play at only $5,600.

Power Forwards:

1) Evan Mobley $6,900 vs. Houston (18th)
2) Jaren Jackson Jr. $7,200 at Portland (2nd)
3) Aaron Gordon $6,200 vs. Minnesota (26th)
4) LeBron James $11,100 at Dallas (18th)
5) Anthony Davis $10,400 at Dallas (18th)
6) Kristaps Porzingis $8,600 vs. Los Angeles Lakers (15th)
7) Wendell Carter Jr. $7,500 vs. Atlanta (25th)
8) Tobias Harris $7,400 vs. Miami (7th)
9) John Collins $7,600 at Orlando (26th)
10) Domantas Sabonis $9,500 at Milwaukee (17th)

The Assist: Evan Mobley has been ripping it up. I like the power forward play at $6,900. Jaren Jackson Jr. fits in the same bucket with his dual-threat eligibility. Aaron Gordon would save you some money to spend elsewhere and is a match-up problem for Minnesota.


1) Nikola Jokic $12,200 vs. Minnesota (10th)
2) Karl-Anthony Towns $10,200 at Denver (12th)
3) Rudy Gobert $9,000 vs. Los Angeles Clippers (11th)
4) Christian Wood $8,900 at Cleveland (20th)
5) Jonas Valanciunas $8,700 at Oklahoma City (7th)

The Assist: You know the drill by now. It stings to do it, but it makes the most sense to pay up for Nikola Jokic. KAT is one of the best players in the NBA, a rare blend of inside-outside abilities. Rudy Gobert contributes across the board, given his defensive prowess.
