FantasyDraft NBA DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheet – December 8, 2019

Welcome to the FC Insights Core Plays and Cheat Sheet Article for FantasyDraft.

In this post, we will be breaking down our top options and plays for FantasyDraft for each night of the 2019-2020 NBA DFS season.

Core Plays

G-Ish Smith-$9,900

Isaiah Thomas has already been ruled out for tonight’s game and that puts Smith in play once again even in the not so great match-up against the Clippers. In the two previous games, with Thomas out, Smith is averaging 17 points, eight assists, and 32.63 fantasy points per game.

F/C-Danilo Gallinari-$12,800

I really like Gallinari tonight at his salary for two reasons. The first reason is due to the way he is playing. In his past four games, Gallinari is averaging 19.8 points, eight rebounds, and 3.3 assists. Gallinari has at least 37 fantasy points in three of those games and in four of his past six games. The second reason is due to the elite match-up against the Trail Blazers. This season the Blazers are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to power forwards.

G-Kent Bazemore-$7,100

Rodney Hood has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering an injury in Portland’s last game and that makes Bazemore one of the best value plays on this slate. In the two previous games that Hood has missed Bazemore is averaging 12.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and three steals+blocks. Bazemore has at least 25 fantasy points in each of those games.
