Off The Cuff – #NBA #FanDuel Starting 5

“Somebody gotta be filming this
When you got this much God somebody gotta be villainess
Somebody gotta be feeling like it’s prophecy filling in
We gotta be boss, somebody gotta be middle men
When you do it this big somebody gotta belittle it”


What’s hattnin my people! It’s time to switch it. Time to take OTC to the next level. Time to hop my crazy ass in the deep end, with NBA!

Nooooow before we get started, understand, this article is for those who, like myself, aren’t that great at full roster construction in NBA DFS. With the STARTING 5, we can simplify the construction and go for what you know a little bit EASIER! Plus, the STARTING 5 on FanDuel, way more fun to me.

So, Let’s get into it!


PG – Chris Paul – ($13,500)

Listen…I know the numbers say that picking on the Mavs at the 1 position, isn’t a good idea. But, this is CP3 we’re talking about. I’m ignoring the hell out of the numbers on this one. The Mavs Defense is awful, and CP3 is elite. No brainer!

With We Matthews out for Dallas, and Yogi likely to fill his spot, I also like…

PG – Eric Gordon – ($10,000)

For Value I like

PG – Cory Joseph – ($8,500)

This is my personal pic. You have to try and find some value in the starting 5 format. Joseph gives you a bit of that. Knicks defense against the 1 position, isn’t that good. So I think he can give you a solid 25-30 FDPS


F – Michael Beasley– ($11,000)

No PorzinGOD always means an uptick for the homie Beasley. Dude just lights it up.With the Pacers giving up 18.6 pts/13 reb’s/4.4 ast against the 4 position, I’d say this is a smash spot for Bease.

F – Luc Mbah a Moute – ($8,500)

Good God, if a spot ever screamed LOCK, it’s this one! I like this spot for him. Mavs give up their life at the 3 position, points wise. I can actually see this game being a high scoring game (regardless of pace), so it might be wise to have shares people.

But  I also like

Harrison Barnes – ($12,000)

Love this match-up for Harrison. I think he’s gonna mash out whoever the Rockets roll out. They give almost he same amount of points at the 3 as the Mavs do.


C – Marc Gasol – ($12,500)

This is a bone picking spot man lol.Nobody gives it up at the 5 position more than OKC. With OG Marc Gasol going up against Adams, I think it’s clobbering tiiiiime!

C – Rudy Gobert – ($12,000) 

Let’s keep it a stack,Portland absolutely sucks against opposing Centers. Gobert is going to bully Nurkic!


That’s it… Simple and eaaaasy! Go out there and kill this slate!
