NBA "Cash Core Plays" + 8 GPP Targets from CheatSheetPros!

NBA “Cash Core” + GPP Plays from CheatSheetPros!


NBA is changing throughout the day so if you are new to NBA DFS then you need to be ready to make pivotal moves 30 minutes prior to lock. Just another reminder if you are new that was post this NBA CheatSheet every Thursday in our “Free” Facebook group for people to try out. (Link is at the bottom of article.) I post it in the morning and then update and post it again 60-90 minutes prior to lock.


These are 3 guys I love for CASH tonight!

DeMarcus Cousins – No John Wall or Christian Wood is going to put Cousins in the 25 minute range tonight. He is projected to be a top value player so don’t over think it. He is playing around 1.3 – 1.4 fantasy points per minute. If you take a simple 25 minutes x 1.3 FPPM = 32.5 DKPs and he is priced at a low 4400 so that means 7.4x value. So what if he only plays 20 minutes? That is still pushing 6x value. The last START he got was on January 6th where he played 23 minutes and put up 40 DKPs grabbing 14 boards. Easy pick here.

Clint Capela – He is one of the top GPP algo plays on our NBA Cheatsheet and for good reason. He is playing out of his mind right now. He is coming off a 76 DKP game where we wrote him up as an absolute SMASH PLAY. His prior two games were both over 50 DKPs. Now you put him in another SMASH SPOT where the Vegas total is already 226 and a team total of 116 against a MIN team giving up the 2nd most fantasy points to the C position. YES SIR! MIN is also allowing 242.5 total DKPs per game and that is 2nd highest on the slate. MIN is allowing 56.5 DKP so the C position and 23% of the total points they allow. He should be priced at 9500 for this game but he is ONLY 8300! Get a couple lines in the money with him before his price tag breaks 9K. He has already rose up from 5200 to 6100 to 6700 to 7000 to 7500 to 7500 and now 8300. He has 56 boards in his last 3 games. My word just play him!

Trae Young – For someone that started off playing so poorly he has really been getting back into form. His first 4 games were 17-mid 30’s DKPs and was priced at 8500 on average. After some ups and downs the last 3 games he has put up 66, 55 and 50.75 DKPs and priced at a solid 9600. He just played this MIN team and put up 55 DKPs so he is a safe 5.5x tonight. MIN is allowing a massive 59.7 DKP to the PG position. In that game vs. MIN he only took 8 FG attempts and still had 55 DKPs. The game before and after he had 23 and 26 FG attempts so he easily could blow up past the 60 DKP mark.


Kyrie Irving – Price didn’t change so he is only 9000 and just put up 51.5 DKPs. Before that game went into 2 OT he had the highest usage and most shots along with Kevin Durant. Kevin Durant is 10,700 so I love saving the 1700 and someone that has 5x FLOOR and should have his assists explode with Durant and Harden on the floor wit him!

Victor Oladipo – He almost made the CASH CORE but wanted to keep it to a tight 3 guys. No John Wall or Christian Wood tonight so that should only increase the usage for Oladipo. Through two games with HOU he has a 42.4 and 36.9 usage rate and he is ONLY 8000??? Yes please!

Collin Sexton – Taking over the 2 OT game vs. BKN Sexton was 16 for 29 with 63.75 DKPs so I think we have to consider him. BKN apparently doesn’t want to play any defense. If Darius Garland (who is Q) is out then I like Sexton even more!

Doug McDermott – If Myles Turner is out the McDerm should get another start. In the last two games he drew the start and played 32 and 34 minutes and put up 28 and 33 DKPs and priced at only 5000. Solid value option with 6-7x upside at a low price point.

Kemba Walker – Definitely a GPP dart here. His usage rate through his first two games back is 40.8 and 36.2 and that is HUGE! He is 6500 and has only put up 23 and 31.5 DKPs but he only played 20 and 22 minutes. He should get a bump to 25-28 minutes tonight and with that usage he is GPP viable.

Kendrick Nunn – We have to play this Tyler Herro GTD game again. If he is out then Nunn becomes a top value play on the slate (AGAIN). His last two games he has played 34 and 35 minutes and put up 35 and 47 DKPs taking an average of 13-14 FG attempts per game.

Isaiah Roby – No Al Horford so Roby should continue to start and he is playing well. He is priced up at 5000 but in the last 3 games he drew the start and played 24-26 minutes and put up 33, 24 and 28 DKPs giving you a fairly safe floor with about a 6x ceiling. Not great for GPPs but he can fill in the gaps for you.

Lauri Markkanen – In his 3 games back he has played 33-35 minutes and attempted 12+ FGs in each game. He has put up no less than 30 DKPs and hit a high of 47.5 DKPs and priced at a LOW 6600. This game is projected for the highest pace of the night and has a team total of 116 points. He is just too cheap and if Lavine doesn’t go off then Markkanen definitely could explode! His usage rate also climbs with Wendell Carter off the court.
