NBA DFS Cheat Sheets for June 18, 2021 – FD, DK, Y!
Looking for a quick consolidated list of options to play today? Let’s take a look at our NBA Cheat Sheets for the 3 major contest providers FanDuel, DraftKings, & Yahoo! to help navigate today’s slate!
For the playoffs, we are going to have Cheat Sheets. Unlike normal Cheat Sheets, we will also include some bullet points that will include some things to note on each slate. The Cheat Sheets will also not include our entire player pool but will show the players we have the most exposure to on each site.
- Joel Embiid is by far my favorite player on this slate coming off his big game five. After that 73.1 fantasy point performance, Embiid has not produced at least 60 fantasy points in four of the six games in this series. The one game he did not hit that mark was the game in which he went 0-12 in the second half but still managed to produce 44.2 fantasy points thanks to 21 rebounds. The Hawks have shown even with Embiid, not at 100% they do not have an answer for him.
- Paul George is likely going to be right up there with Embiid as the most popular player on this slate but I am personally not going to have a ton of exposure to him. The reason why I am not going to have a ton of exposure to George or Donovan Mitchell for that matter tonight has nothing to do with how I feel they are going to play tonight but rather the depth of the position they play. Shooting guard is once again the deepest position on this slate and it features the two best mid-range/value plays on this slate in Seth Curry and Joe Ingles. I personally would rather roster those two players and the 30 plus fantasy points they are going to get me and use the salary savings to spend up at much weaker positions such as point guard and center.
- If you are playing on FanDuel, there really is only one small forward combination for you to use. That combination is Nicolas Batum and Bojan Bogdanovic due to the injuries to Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green. This combination is going to be used in I would guess 80 plus percent of lineups tonight on that site. While I hate eating chalk as much as the rest of you guys do you are going to have to eat this chalk. I just don’t see any way around it tonight unless you really want to take a risk with Danilo Gallinari.
