Hi there my fellow NBA DFS competitors. DFS guru CD Hill is here to give you my highly recommended DraftKings/FanDuel NBA Sleeper Picks. These picks will be from NBA games that take place on Wednesday, December 28th, 2016 & that start between the following times: 7:00 PM EST and 10:30 PM EST. If any of my picks help your lineups today, be sure to let me know in the comments on my Twitter page @cdhill81 & as always, be sure to keep track of whether or not the players you plan on going with today are expected to suit up in their contests. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for my Bargain Bin Player (usually my cheapest buy) of the Day.

SF/PF (only PF eligible on FD) - Tobias Harris (MIL@DET) - (FPPG on DK: 27.4, FD: 25.7 & DK Salary: $5,500, FD Salary: $5,600):
Tobias Harris has put up back-to-back 30+ fantasy point outings (in 31 MPG) on both DraftKings and FanDuel of late thanks mostly to his 20+ PPG, 6+ RPG and 3+ 3PMPG averages in that stretch. He conveniently faces a Bucks team next that has allowed the 5th most FPPG to opposing forwards this season on both DraftKings and FanDuel, so a lot of the same fantasy points wise should be expected of him in this matchup. He's a solid buy right now that you should give a go at whatever position he's available at today for whatever contest interests you.
SG - Jamal Crawford (LAC@NO) - (FPPG on DK: 19.7, FD: 18.2 & DK Salary: $5,400, FD Salary: $5,000):
The injury bug has once again plagued the Los Angeles Clippers' starting roster. With Blake Griffin now out for quite a few weeks with a knee injury & with Chris Paul and/or J.J. Redick questionable for Wednesday night's contest against the Pelicans, I'm expecting Jamal Crawford to once again step it up in a big way offensively for his squad like he has in recent games for them. In his last three games with minutes finishing in the 30+ range, Crawford has sported a very nice 24 PPG average to go along with a notable 5 APG, 2 3PMPG and 1 SPG. He goes up against a New Orleans teams next that struggles pretty handily at keeping opposing guards' FPPG down, especially opposing point guards'. I love this matchup for Crawford today and especially love the price tags he's listed at in the process as well on both DraftKings and FanDuel.
SF - Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (CHA@ORL) - (FPPG on DK: 23, FD: 21.9 & DK Salary: $4,800, FD Salary: $4,700):
My DraftKings/FanDuel Bargain Bin Player of the Day is the dirt cheap Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. With Charlotte's Marco Belinelli out of action in his last two contests, Kidd-Gilchrist's seen his volume of minutes reach well into the 30's in that stretch (34 MPG) and he should once again be in line for huge amount of minutes in his game later this evening with Belinelli still out of action. MKG has maintained a double-double average to go along with 3 BPG and 2 APG in his last two games and looks like a likely bet to end with another 30+ fantasy point total in his contest against the Magic next. His matchup with Orlando is a VERY doable one, so be sure to give this ridiculously cheap pick a start today.
Other Sleeper Picks to Consider:
Ricky Rubio, Rajon Rondo, Brandon Knight, Austin Rivers (if Chris Paul and/or J.J. Reddick sit), Will Barton, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Allen Crabbe (if Damian Lillard sits), Sean Kilpatrick, Otto Porter, Aaron Gordon, Gorgui Dieng, Thaddeus Young, Markieff Morris, Luc Richard Mbah A Toute (if Chris Paul and/or J.J. Reddick sit), Nikola Mirotic, Jon Leuer, Marcin Gortat and Robin Lopez.
