NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 2)

FANDUEL

Jusuf Nurkic (POR) (C) – $6,700

  • Dame Dolla is going to be out at least 10 days and Nurk price tag didn’t move up while Simons and McCollum did. Nurk is my favorite player on both sites so play the big man while he is sub-7k.

Tyus Jones (MEM) (PG) – $4,600

  • Morant is also out after a sprained knee. There is no timetable for his injury but for today, we have Tyus Jones at 4.6k. Way too cheap and if the game can stay somewhat close, this pick is a no brainer.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL) (PF/SF) – $11,000

  • Value from a ton of injury news lets us spend up easily to Giannis again. If you know anything about NHL, whenever the best player is on the slate which is McDavid, he is usually a core play and just like Giannis for NBA. It’s just hard fading a high floor, high ceiling player who does it all.

CJ McCollum (POR) (SG) – $8,000

  • McCollums price is much better on FD than DK. Still viable there but isn’t a core play. Play him while Dame is out.

DRAFTKINGS

Jusuf Nurkic (POR) (C) – $7,000

  • 7k is about right i’d say but he can easily surpass 5x with Dame out. Lock for me on DK.

Tre Mann (OKC) (PG/SG) – $3,600

  • SGA is officially ruled out which gives Mann more opportunities to show case his skills. He is a solid player and I like what i’ve seen from him. For 3.6k, he is simply the best salary relief play.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Jaren Jackson (MEM) (PF/C) – $6,900
  • Anfernee Simons (POR) (PG/SG) – $5,200

DK

  • Landry Shamet (PHX) (SG/SF) – $3,100
  • Jaren Jackson Jr. (MEM) (PF/C) – $7,100
