NBA FanDuel Cash Game Tiers – Wednesday Oct 24th
Good Morning and welcome back NBA FanDuel DFS squad; hope you enjoyed a great Monday night full of winnings.
I made a Fantasy Basketball lineup just off these plays and took down a 100 man FanDuel NBA GPP; that late night stack was golden. We have an 11 game slate which is much better than the 3 game one we had yesterday; which was a GPP only slate in my opinion. This slate features a couple great games and what could be a high 200s maybe up to 300 cash line so we have to be good. Here I will be breaking down FanDuel NBA cash games by tier. As Always remember to follow me on twitter @dfs_joey for any updates on the slate because on most slates we will have late injury news that will change-up value plays and this slate very different.
NBA FanDuel Point Guard
John Wall 9.3k: John Wall should have a nice bounce back game and I hope recency bias will keep ownership lower. Steph Curry defense is nothing to worry about I actually used to target him last season. This game should be very high scoring and I love this as sneaky GPP stack with some one offs for cash. John Wall is having one of his best starts to a season for his career and I don’t see him slowing down anytime soon.
Dennis Smith Jr 6.9k: He’s usually a GPP play for me most days especially with Luka Doncic here taking up a ton of usage, but this matchup is too good to pass up. He will be matched up against Trae Young who’s offense is a million times better than his defense he doesn’t scare me at all to be able to play a volatile player in cash.
Michael Carter-Williams 3.5k: LOCK ALERT!!! With Chris Paul and James Ennis out MCdubs will see a huge boost. He was the rookie of the year back in 2014 so we know he’s got potential if given the minutes. The last 2 years when given 30+ minutes he averaged 16 points 7.5 rebounds 4.5 assists per game. This was only in 4 games but I suspect around 30 minutes from him tonight and with that potential he should pay off value no matter the matchup.
NBA FanDuel Shooting Guard
This position is absolutely stacked. Go over to DK and play all these guys in a lineup and watch you take in money.
James Harden 11.9k: I started writing me article with this play. He’s a lock in cash games. Last year when Chris Paul was out Harden went on an absolute tear. He ended with a 60 point triple double. He’s going to be a focal point of not only that offense but also my lineups. He might end up with 100 points and I wouldn’t be surprised. GPP Pivot: Jimmy Butler
Zach Lavine 7.6k: He started the season with 3 straight games with 30 points only Michael Jordan and Bob Love have done that in franchise history. With Kris Dunn out for another 4-6 weeks Lavine should easily continue reaching value at that price. GPP Pivot: Josh Hart
Rodney McGruder 4.5k: He is still too cheap for me. He got up to 41 minutes last game. If Wayne Ellington is still out just lock him in again and don’t even worry about it. Justise Winslow is back which shouldn’t make you shy away from this play. He won’t get you 10x but he will still pay off value. GPP Pivot: Garrett Temple (revenge)
NBA FanDuel Small Forward
Lebron James 11.5k: Lebron needs to put this team on his back. There’s a bunch of young guns and fools on this team and James needs to take control before he goes 0-4. Last game we got him 15% in cash. With no Rajon rondo and the safest game on the slate to avoid blowout and he’s 15%. That just seemed crazy because he was a lock for me. Again is the same situation no Rondo to take usage away and Lonzo Ball doesn’t seem to demand the ball in his hand so I expect another 30%+ usage rate game.
Joe Ingles 6.6k: Jingles has been crazy efficient from the field. His usage rate has increased by 3% already to start the season. We saw small improvements last year pre and post all-star break and he’s continued the success and has even elevated his game.
Dorian Finney-Smith 4.3k: He’s in another spot where he will see upwards of 40 minutes with Harrison Barnes out again. They will be playing in a high paced game which will see a ton of scoring. He normally hasn’t seen this many minutes consistently in his career but he has been paying ff the salary to get him to exactly the 5x we want from him in cash games GPP Pivot: Carmelo Anthony
NBA FanDuel Power forward
LaMarcus Aldridge 9.1k: His usage rate is 25% which is very high for a PF/C. He gets it the line a ton so if he’s able to get the bigs in foul trouble for Indy he will be able to force mismatches and feast even more. He fouled out Javale McGee Monday night and it just became a feed Aldridge fest.
Kyle Kuzma 7.2k: LMA/Kuz might be my PF combo again. He had the game of his life Monday night I don’t think he repeats that but Brandon Ingram still out I’m going right back to him. When they gave him, he made full use of the minutes not leaving anything on the court. Now he will be playing the Suns who are one of the worst defensive teams in the league. My only concern is the blowout risk but the Lakers haven’t been that good this year so not super concerned.

Alex Poythress 3.7: He continues to see in the mid 20s in minutes which during the course of his career he has shown he can pay of the value when given the minutes. I would suspect another 25 minute upside game from him tonight and he makes a great play for salary relief when trying to reach for those studs.
NBA FanDuel Center
Joel Embiid 10.4k: Ben Simmons should be back tonight but Embiid actually has his best games with 0 days rest. Now that he seems healthy and not resting on back to backs I feel more confident in this play. He’s in a perfect match-up against Milwaukee
Enes Kanter 7.2k: Ok I’m starting to sound like a broken record with this guy. If you have read my article before you know I love this guy. I’ve put him in every article that the Knicks are on the slate. He give you the best floor out of any of these mid priced guys that you want for cash but he also has huge upside to go off for 50 fantasy points.
Damian Jones 4.2k: I love to pay down at center in cash and he’s going to be the one I pay down to. He is in an absolute smash spot against Washington. Centers have just had their way inside so far this season with Dwight out and that makes me drool over this play. He should be overlooked which will give us a huge edge on this slate. If he is not in your cash lineup make sure you have exposure to him in GPPs because he could go for 10x value.
