NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 21)

FANDUEL

Jaylen Nowell (MIN) (PG) – $4,000

  • It’s crazy how many players are in the health and safety protocols but i’m just glad we have some NBA still going on. Obviously with all these news, you will find value and you get it from Jaylen Nowell. With both Patrick Beverley and Anthony Edwards out, Nowell should slide into the starting rotation for 4k.

Alec Burks (NYK) (SG/SF) – $5,600

  • Burks is underpriced here on FD but a little too expensive on DK. Great option in cash games for 5.6k.

Julius Randle (NYK) (PF/C) – $8,800

  • Same with Burks, pricing is totally different for Randle as he is 10.3k on DK and 8.8k here. Randle is an elite player who dominates with a high usage rate. He is one of my favorite spend ups on the slate today.

DRAFTKINGS

Jaylen Nowell (MIN) (PG) – $3,300

  • Nowell has been very good and if he is given starter minutes, he is slightly over 1 dk point per minute. If he gets 30 minutes, he will smash this price tag.

Kemba Walker (NYK) (PG) – $5,200

  • Kemba was excellent in his start after going weeks of being benched. If he starts again, I don’t mind his price on DK but I don’t think you need him on FD today.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Saddiq Bey (DET) (SF) – $5,200

DK

  • Karl-Anthony Towns (MIN) (C) – $9,900
