NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 19)

FANDUEL

Buddy Hield (SAC) (SG/SF) – $5,100

  • We are already down 2 games today due to postponements but let’s hope the slate can hold onto a decent size. Although Buddy played heavy minutes in his starting role just the other night, 5.1k is hard to ignore today with no Fox. Buddy is a lock for me on both sites and should be the player you start for your cash game lineup.

Harrison Barnes (SAC) (SF/PF) – $6,000

  • Barnes has been very inconsistent but it’s reassuring that the past 2 games, he put up 30+ FD points. I really like this play for 6k and has a great chance to get 30+ again tonight.

Saddiq Bey (DET) (SF) – $4,900

  • Just like Barnes, Bey has played very well the last couple of games but he is inconsistent, just like Barnes. It’s difficult not to play him because of his price tag.

DRAFTKINGS

Buddy Hield (SAC) (SG/SF) – $5,900

  • Buddy buckets! Load him up on both sites in your cash game builds and let the rest fall in place.

Tyrese Haliburton (SAC) (PG/SG) – $6,900

  • Hali is a bit too cheap here and stands out as a solid play on DK. He will handle the ball with no Fox and for 6.9k, you can’t get a better deal.

Chimezie Metu (SAC) (PF) – $4,800

  • Value is much better here compared to his price tag on FD. If Holmes is out, I’ll gladly play Metu for 4.8k.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Dejounte Murray (SA) (PG/SG) – $9,000
  • Kyle Lowry (MIA) (PG) – $7,400

DK

  • Karl-Anthony Towns (MIN) (C) – $9,600
  • Dillon Brooks (MEM) (SF) – $6,300
