12/4 DFS Diamonds: DFS Pro J.P. on NBA



I’ll be focusing on my core and GPP plays for the 12/4 DFS NBA for each position along with my favorite value plays.   

With NBA DFS, you need to stay locked in the final hour before lock until tipoff. If you can’t be engaged during that hour, we recommend avoiding the NBA slate. Starting lineups and other news is vital to being successful in NBA DFS.

My Core and Value Plays by Position:

  • Core Plays – PG – 12/4 DFS
    • Trae Young, PG, ATL
    • Luka Doncic, PG, DAL
      • I think I’m starting all my builds around these two guys. Doncic is unstoppable right now and sat out the whole 4th quarter last night so he should be fresh. As for Trae, he could easily go for 50-60 tonight.
    • Emmanuel Mudiay, PG, UTA – No Mike Conley tonight. It might be the best value play of the night!
  • Core Plays – SG- 12/4 DFS
    • Core Play – Buddy Hield, SG, SAC
      • Hield is on fire lately and I think he could easily smash tonight in a high tempo matchup. My fear is it will either be him or Bogdanovic that will be the ones to crush and Bogdanovic is very low priced.
    • Value Play – Terrance Ross, SG, ORL
    • Other Value Play – Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG, SAC
      • Ross is too cheap on the second night on a back to back and should have done more yesterday. He’s getting the minutes and Augustin rose to the occasion. I think tonight is Ross’ night.
  • Core Plays – SF- 12/4 DFS
    • Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL
      • Giannis faces a terrible defense and high paced Pistons team. I lean toward Doncic and Trae tonight, but Giannis is the top play.
    • Value Play – Taurean Prince, SF, BKN
    • Other Value Play – Tim Hardaway Jr., SF, DAL
      • Prince and Hardaway are both starting and in killer matchups. I think I may fade Giannis and go these two with the matchup they have.
  • Core Plays – PF- 12/4 DFS
    • Aaron Gordon, PF, ORL
    • Frank Kaminsky, PF, PHX
    • Cheick Diallo, PF, PHX
      • Now we get to the tougher position of the night. I like Aaron Gordon because he’s priced low with some high usage, but if he puts up a dud, he will be on the do not play list until further notice. As for Kaminsky and Diallo, they will get a ton of minutes with Baynes already ruled out.
  • Core Plays – C- 12/4 DFS
    • Andre Drummond, C, DET
      • If Blake Griffin is OUT, I like this play more, but I fear a blowout versus the Bucks so I might just spend down.
    • Lock Value Play – Mo Bamba, C, ORL
      • Bamba is getting about 20 minutes a game and is priced pretty cheaply. I will try for Drummond, but if I pay up for Trae and Doncic, it may be tough
  • Sexy 6
    • Luka Doncic, PG, DAL
    • Trae Young, PG, ATL
    • Taurean Prince, SF, BKN
    • Aaron Gordon, PF, ORL
    • Frank Kaminsky or Cheick Diallo, PF, PHX
    • Andre Drummond, C, MIL (If not, Mo Bamba)
  • Do Not Play List
    • Kristaps Porzingis
    • Rudy Gay
    • Blake Griffin
