Cheap Plays at each position (DraftKings price)

Shaun Livingston BKN, PG (3,900)- He makes a good start as long as he is cheap. He should play 30+ minutes while putting up close to 25 Fantasy Points (FPTs) on 15+ points and 5+ assist. Nothing special, but solid production.

Jodie Meeks LAL, SG (4,800)- Playing this guy in all lineups as he has been BALLING recently. Meeks has scored 18+ points in 3 straight games and 30+ FPTs (DK scoring) during that span. He is playing major minutes and goes against the Rockets tonight which should be a high scoring game.

Danny Green SAS, SG/SF (4,200)- Manu is out. Green put up 37 FPTs last time he played Dallas including

5-5 from long distance. Also, Like Terrence Ross as well.

Terrence Jones Hou, SF/PF (4,800)- The Lakers are brutal vs big men. Jones isn’t priced that high and could produce solid numbers like 25+ FPTS.

Robert Sacre LAL, C (3,300)- Sacre has been surprisingly good…well good for what Sacre normally does. He has had double digit points or rebounds in his last 3 games while playing just over 27 minutes during that span. 20 FPTs for a guy that is basically the lowest value you can get is not too shabby.


Players that should have big night.

I think the Portland vs Orlando game has a lot of sweet plays, but I am worried this a blowout from the get go so I am fading all of these players. Ditto for the Brooklyn/Golden State game.

Andre Drummond DET, PF/C (7,300)- Drummond has been very consistent recently as he has averaged 14.3 points and 15.6 rebounds the last 3 games. Should easily get 35 FPTs with the possibility of having a huge night.

DeMar DeRozan TOR,SG/SF (7,400)- Double D Has produced 41 FPTs or more in 3 out of his last 4 games (the other game he had 35 FPTs) and faces the Pistons tonight who don’t really know what defense is. Plus, who doesn’t love Double D’s?

Josh Smith Det, SF/PF (7,000)– He has been productive recently and should have a solid game tonight. Just don’t watch him shoot from long distance because you will throw up from how ugly his shot is.

Anthony Davis PF/C (9,200)- This is the high priced player I am rolling with tonight. Mr. Anderson (Ryan) is hurt which means more minutes for Davis. He faces the Wizards who are starting Trevor Booker so A.D. should have a monster game.

Blake Griffin (9,000)/DeAndre Jordan(6,800) LAC,PF/C – Both of these guys should have a monster game as long as it isn’t a blowout. Big men have feasted on the Boston frontcourt so look for these guys to dominate tonight,

I think what happens so often is opposing QB's get so intimidated they try and be like Manning. Just play your game...

Jeff Fisher is rocking quite the beer gut these days....whoa!!

@_JohnDuckworth_ @DrewDinkmeyer But last week wasn't on Cameron either. 2 completely broken plays..literally uncovered for 2-91-1 of his day

@DrewDinkmeyer @_JohnDuckworth_ And people wonder why I am always defensive Drew...lol

@_JohnDuckworth_ @DrewDinkmeyer Better people? Who the hell are you to say anything? I was right on Cameron last year right on him this year
