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 – Ish Smith– ($10,00)

Atlanta has numerous big pieces out today. So why not pick the bones in this spot? Might be a tad chalky, but with such a big slate…I think you’ll still get some nice low ownership. May get some #CriminalOwnership out of it!

In a sneaky spot for tonight, I also like…

PG – De’Aaron Fox – ($10,500)

Listen…I know you’re probably looking at this like, “what the hell is he talking about”? Last 5 games, the Rockets have been complete shit against the 1 position. They’ve given up, 26.4pts/6.4reb/9.6ast. Plus, I think Chris Paul’s knee’s are getting to him. Remember, he has the same issues that Brandon Roy had. Now , you tell me that’s not worth throwing a dart at….EXACTLY!


F – Ben Simmons – ($14,000)

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeverybody know’s this young bull has been doing his thing. Tonight, he gets the Heat. Why this spot is  a LOCK for me, is because he’s A MATCH-UP NIGHTMARE , going at one of the worst defensive teams in the league at the 1 (for the past 5 games.

F – Brandon Ingram – ($11,000)

The Pelicans are complete ass packets against the 3 position. Ingram has been ballin’ as of late too. In a spot like this, I can see Ingram going OFF for about 40FDPs.

But I also like

F – Thaddeus Young – ($10,500)

Brooklyn might be worst team ever put together when it comes to defending against BIGS. They GIVE IT UP. Thad might drop 40FDPs tonight. Plus, it’s salary relief, to fit those studs in.


C – Jarret Allen – ($10,500)

Ya’ll know why he’s here. The Pacers have given up 22.6pts/15.6reb/3.4ast in the last 5 games to the 5 position. You can pivot off of him to Myles Turner – ($11,500) , because like I said above…Brooklyn is terrible against BIGS.

C – Rudy Gobert – ($12,500)

I’m 50/50on this dude tbh. Only because he’s the 5 version of JR SMith…STREAKY as fuck. Buuuuuuuuut, He’s in a smash spot against the Suns tonight. Suns again, are awful against the 5.


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