NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 20)

FANDUEL

Javonte Green (CHI) (SG/SF) – $4,000

  • Javonte Green isn’t a fantasy point per minute monster but he is very cheap on both sites. We saw him play almost 3 full quarters last game and this matchup can’t get any better. My favorite player is Green today as he provides a lot of value for his price.

Stephen Curry (GSW) (PG) – $9,700

  • Curry is back and he is without Poole and Wiggins which greatly benefits him. He is much more appealing on FD and gets to face the Kings tonight. Save with Javonte Green and use your money by playing the greatest shooter of all time.

Buddy Hield (SAC) (SG/SF) – $5,100

  • After a slow start, Buddy ended up dropping 40+ FD points. He is still priced at 5.1k so this is a no brainer. You can think of fading him on DK but as of now, I wouldn’t.

DRAFTKINGS

Javonte Green (CHI) (SF) – $3,100

  • Simply too cheap on DK. If he plays 36 minutes at 3.1k, that’s a steal. The best salary relief play by far today.

Chimezie Metu (SAC) (PF) – $4,700

  • Too cheap here at 4.7k which will make him very chalky. It’s harder to play him at 6k on FD but there’s no reason you should fade on DK.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Alex Caruso (CHI) (PG/SG) – $5,400
  • Tobias Harris (PHI) (PF/SF) – $7,000

DK

  • Tyrese Haliburton (SAC) (PG/SG) – $7,000
  • Buddy Hield (SAC) (SG/SF) – $5,800
