NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 18)

FANDUEL

Jrue Holiday (MIL) (PG/SG) – $9,300

  • Jrue has been excellent with Khris and Giannis out but he did play 44 minutes last night. They will need him but I’m worried about coach Bud lowering his minutes today. He is still a lock for me on both sites in cash games.

Jayson Tatum (BOS) (SF/PF) – $9,700

  • The Boston Celtics played just last night and Tatum led the way with 42 minutes. I am not worried about the B2B as the Knicks don’t have anyone that can guard Tatum. I prefer him on DK due to his price tag but locks on both sites for me today. Both Jrue and Jayson are equally my favorite plays and I can’t think of another way of attacking this slate without both of them in my lineup, unless big news breaks.

Franz Wagner (ORL) (SF/SG) – $6,000

  • I watched Franz closely along side Chuma last night and they are really solid players who have bright futures. They did play a lot of minutes but I am going right back to Franz as he has a high usage rate for his team.

DRAFTKINGS

Jrue Holiday (MIL) (PG) – $8,200

  • Jrue is way too cheap here for 8.2k on DK. He is 1.1k more expensive on FD and I still like him a lot over there. Lock button and it’s a no brainer.

Jayson Tatum (BOS) (SF/PF) – $9,800

  • Tatum is in a prime spot to crush the Knicks. As long as he gets his normal minutes, he should get 5x value or more.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Chuma Okeke (ORL) (PF) – $4,200
  • Gary Payton (GSW) (SG) – $4,200

DK

  • Chuma Okeke (ORL) (SF/PF) – $3,800
  • Gary Payton II (GSW) (PG/SG) – $3,300

KEY INJURY NEWS

  • OG Anunoby – questionable
  • Lu Dort – questionable
  • Derrick Rose – questionable
  • Precious Achiuwa – questionable
