Back to a bigger slate tonight.

Those small slates are rough but hey, I’m going to play anyway.

Here are tonights top plays for the 12/14 NBA DFS slate along with my 50/50 lineup. As always, these salaries are taken from DraftKings.

Good luck.


PG 12/14

John Wall ($9,700) – He’s been nuts lately, not sure you can fade him in cash.

Brandon Knight ($7,600) – He gives you the upside of a guy that costs $10K for less than $8K. Really good GPP play.

Derrick Rose ($6,400) – He hasn’t been great but he’s cheap and is going to shoot until his arm falls off.


SG 12/14

DeMar Derozan ($7,100) – Unless it’s Paul George, the Pacers struggle guarding on the perimeter. He should score 25 and could drop up near 40.

Victor Oladipo ($6,400) – He hasn’t been as good as last year but as his role becomes more clear, he’ll start seeing more volume.

JJ Redick ($4,300) – He could score 20 on any night but not consistent enough for cash games. You’re getting the starting SG on a really good offense for almost a punt play salary.


SF 12/14

Marcus Morris ($5,800) – I prefer him in GPPs but you can use him in either. Tons of minutes, just needs to shoot well. He’ll get open looks.

Al-Farouq Aminu ($5,200) – Tons of minutes. Just over $5K. Does a lot of things. Yeah.


PF 12/14

Anthony Davis ($10,600) – A1 Stud. Best play of the night.

Derrick Favors ($7,700) – Tons of usage without Gobert around, cleaning up on the boards. He’s a steal under $8K.

Thad Young ($7,200) – Been really productive. Could get a 25-13 type of effort for near $7K.


C 12/14

Nikola Vucevic ($6,800) – He’ll see a lot of work with that Brooklyn front line and that almost always leads to production.

Al Horford ($6,500) – Quietly puts up really solid lines each and every night. Reliable and a great cash play.

Martin Gortat ($6,200) – The Wiz have very few healthy bodies on that front line. He’ll see a lot of work.



Gary Neal ($4,000) – No Beal. More Neal.

Terrence Ross ($3,900) – As long as Carroll is out, he’ll get run.

Tony Wroten ($3,600) – Seems like he will switch on and off with Kendall Marshall sitting out games. He’ll see 15-20 minutes, enough to be worth this salary.

Garrett Temple ($3,500) – Like Neal, he’ll be in line for a nice boost without Beal.

Trey Lyles ($3,200) – He’s getting minutes but not really doing anything with them. The minutes will be there so if you want to roll the dice in a GPP, sure.



50/50 LINEUP

PG – Brandon Knight

SG – Rodney Hood

SF – Al-Farouq Aminu

PF – Anthony Davis

C – Al Horford

G – Garrett Temple

F – Luol Deng

UTIL – Jimmy Butler
