NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 1)


Dewayne Dedmon (MIA) (C) – $3,700

  • Bam suffered a torn UCL which will take around 6 weeks to recover. This means if Dedmond plays tonight, he will slide into the starting lineup. For 3.7k, he is my favorite play on both sites and will definitely be the highest owned player.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL) (PF/SF) – $11,200

  • With all the value from the Heat and Clippers, you can easily plug in Giannis as your top spend up. This is a great route today for your cash game builds. He is a better play on FD but I don’t mind him on DK.

Reggie Jackson (LAC) (PG) – $6,300

  • Paul George is sitting out (rest) which means Mr. June will turn to Mr. December. We obviously know Kawhi is out and with PG13 out, Jackson will be taking control of the team.

Jimmy Butler (MIA) (SF/SG) – $9,200

  • Butler is questionable as well but if he is in, we want to go all in as Bam is out. We just need to keep an eye out for injury news that will definitely change our lineups.

Marcus Morris (LAC) (PF/SF) – $4,500

  • Without PG13, Jackson will need help and their second option now will be Marcus Morris. He was out for a long time but has gotten 3 games under his feet which means he should be in game form for tonight against the Kings. The matchup can’t get any better so load up on Jackson and Morris along with the Heat players if ruled in.


Dewayne Dedmon (MIA) (C) – $3,100

  • We have no Bam but we have Dedmon for 3.1k. Lock and start building around him as your must play piece.

Reggie Jackson (LAC) (PG) – $6,000

  • Reggie Jackson is inconsistent and I don’t care if he is volatile because he will get more shots, usage and minutes. Without PG13 tonight, the Clippers will look for Jackson to lead them to a victory.



  • Caris LeVert (IND) (SG/SF) – $5,400


  • Marcus Morris Sr. (LAC) (PF) – $4,400


  • Jimmy Butler – questionable
  • Dewayne Dedmon – questionable
