So what is a Free Square exactly? In DFS we define the Free Square as a player to build your lineups around. Generally, this player represents the closest we can find to a sure thing for the slate.
This column is all about trying to identify the free square for a particular slate. Often times, this will be a low-cost player who is thrust into a starting role and sure to make or exceed value. The type of player that allows us to load up the rest of our lineup with high salary studs. Occasionally it will be a high priced stud in a great spot. Each slate we will take a look at three or four players which represent great value on the day’s slate of games and choose the one which best represents the top value and floor play to earn the title of the slates Free Square
My NBA Free Squares for Today 🇺🇸 December 2nd 🇺🇸
🇺🇸 Tyus Jones $5,600 / $4,000
This is a Fanduel specific play as Draftkings has priced him appropriately very quickly for tonight’s slate. We’re expecting Ja Morant to be out for a while for the Grizzlies, so, Tyus Jones should be the starting point guard tonight and for the foreseeable future. He has flashed big upside in the past, but, not much recently this season. That being said he’s pretty safe and should play around 25-30 in his new starting role for the time being. He played 25 minutes last game against the T’Wolves and scored 31.0 fantasy points. On Fanduel he’ll be super chalky, but I’ve got a pivot for our VIP Members lined up already 🤑 so be sure to jump in our VIP Only Chat sometime this afternoon ❤🤟
🇺🇸 Dennis Smith Jr $3,200 / $3,600
The Knicks are likely to be without Frank Ntilikina tonight, and that should free up a ton of minutes for Smith Jr are near min price across the industry. He had a real solid game yesterday against the Celtics where he played 38 minutes and scored 32.75 fantasy points. I’m not sure if we can expect 38 more minutes again tonight, but, even if he only plays 30 or so, he should be able to pay off his dirt-cheap price tag fairly easily.

🇺🇸 Giannis Antetokounmpo $12,000 / $12,200
Not “free” by any stretch, but, in my opinion, he’s someone you simply can’t fade on this slate. His FLOOR would be the 6th highest projection this slate which is pretty crazy to even think about. He’s coming off a down game against the Hornets, where he “only” scored 45.25 fantasy points. The crazy part is that he scored those 45.25 fantasy points in only 19 minutes!!! The Blowout is a bit of a concern here against the Knicks but even with that threat, I’m not getting off Giannis tonight. There is plenty of value to fit him in and I don’t see a reason not to.
🇺🇸 Robin Lopez $4,400 / $3,500
He will start for his injured brother Brook Lopez tonight vs the Knicks. He’s dead minimum 3.5k on Fanduel but priced up to 4.4k on DK so I prefer him on Fanduel tonight. Last game he played 24 minutes in his brother’s absence and scored 33.0 fantasy points. He’ll be chalky, so if you wanna pay up at Center that would be a good way to be contrarian on Fanduel tonight.
