The Best Bang For Your Buck in NBA DFS: 12/8/21

The Best Bang For Your Buck in NBA DFS- 12:8:21

Poing Guards:

1) Cade Cunningham $7,600 vs. Washington (29th)
2) Kyle Lowry $7,200 vs. Milwaukee (28th)
3) Cole Anthony $7,600 at Sacramento (9th)
4) Lonzo Ball $7,500 at Cleveland (11th)
5) Donovan Mitchell $8,700 at Minnesota (22nd)
6) Steph Curry $11,400 vs. Portland (28th)
7) James Harden $11,200 at Houston (16th)
8) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander $8,600 at Toronto (4th)
9) Malcolm Brogdon $8,500 vs. New York (5th)
10) De’Aaron Fox $8,300 vs. Orlando (23rd)

The Assist: Cade Cunningham is coming on strong in his rookie season. Cunningham draws the Wizards, and he should exploit the team that cares very little about defense. Kyle Lowry is a solid play at $7,200. Milwaukee hasn’t stopped ball all season long. Cole Anthony is playing like an All-Star and for $7,600 remains a value play.

Shooting Guards:

1) Bradley Beal $8,600 at Detroit (26th)
2) Darius Garland $7,700 vs. Chicago (3rd)
3) Tyler Herro $7,000 vs. Milwaukee (29th)
4) Andrew Wiggins $6,300 vs. Portland (28th)
5) Khris Middleton $7,700 at Miami (15th)
6) Anthony Edwards $8,400 vs. Utah (6th)
7) Zach LaVine $10,500 at Cleveland (7th)
8) Fred VanVleet $9,300 vs. Oklahoma City (6th)
9) Brandon Ingram $9,100 vs. Denver (24th)
10) Kelly Oubre Jr. $7,500 vs. Philadelphia (18th)

The Assist: Bradley Beal is the most confident play on the slate at the shooting guard position. I don’t mind paying up a little bit to get him. With Collin Sexton done for the season, Darius Garland takes a pivotal role for the Cavaliers. We have recommended Tyler Herro on just about every slate, and this one is no different.

Small Forwards:

1) Luka Doncic $11,500 at Memphis (12th)
2) Paul George $10,700 vs. Boston (16th)
3) Jayson Tatum $10,600 at Los Angeles Clippers (8th)
4) Gordon Hayward $7,600 vs. Philadelphia (18th)
5) Miles Bridges $8,200 vs. Philadelphia (18th)
6) Scottie Barnes $8,100 vs. Oklahoma City (15th)
7) Will Barton $6,900 at New Orleans (13th)
8) Josh Giddey $6,600 at Toronto (4th)
9) Aaron Gordon $6,200 at New Orleans (1st)
10) Dillon Brooks $6,100 vs. Dallas (11th)

The Assist: Luka Doncic being dual-position eligible makes him a fascinating case for the small forward position on this slate. I would pay up for Luka at the SF position. Paul George produces across the board and should do so against the Celtics. On the opposite end of the court, Jayson Tatum should flourish. I cannot wait for this one.

Power Forwards:

1) Julius Randle $10,000 at Indiana (18th)
2) Kevin Durant $11,300 at Houston (28th)
3) Giannis Antetokounmpo $11,600 at Miami (10th)
4) Domanta Sabonis $10,300 vs. New York (4th)
5) Kristaps Porzingis $8,100 at Memphis (19th)
6) Tobias Harris $7,600 at Charlotte (22nd)
7) Jerami Grant $7,800 vs. Washington (17th)
8) Draymond Green $7,100 vs. Portland (2nd)
9) Kyle Kuzma $5,700 at Detroit (23rd)
10) Franz Wagner $5,800 at Sacramento (10th)

The Assist: Julius Randle finds his way on our slate and the very top. Randle is the offense for the Knicks, and $10,000 is a relative bargain. Kevin Durant is a slate assassin–he is in play at $11,300. Giannis is always a consideration if you can find the funds.


1) Christian Wood $9,800 vs. Brooklyn (12th)
2) Joel Embiid $11,700 at Charlotte (27th)
3) Nikola Jokic $11,900 at New Orleans (15th)
4) Karl-Anthony Towns $10,800 vs. Utah (20th)
5) Nikola Vucevic $9,500 at Cleveland (17th)

The Assist: Christian Wood can produce like the top center plays on the slate for a slight discount of $9,800. Joel Embiid should have his way with the Charlotte frontcourt, don’t be afraid to pay up. Nikola Jokic is a bit banged up, but it looks like he will be suiting up against New Orleans on Wednesday night.
