NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 5)

FANDUEL

P.J. Washington (CHA) (PF/C) – $6,000

  • The Hornets are shorthanded without Plumlee and McDaniels which will give plenty of minutes to PJ. On top of this, LaMelo is out due to Covid which gives an extra boost to his usage. For 6k, he is underpriced and should be able to smash tonight.

Brandon Ingram (PEL) (SF) – $7,700

  • On a small slate like today, there isn’t a lot to pay up for. Ingram isn’t even priced up and is reasonable on FD which is why he becomes a solid cash game play. He leads the Pelicans in usage and will look to keep it up against the Rockets.

Armoni Brooks (HOU) (SG) – $4,100

  • Brooks was very close to being my cover boy to beat out Washington but that doesn’t mean he can’t be a great play. He is an extremely great value play as the Rockets are without KPJ and green. Brooks is near min price on both sites and benefits the most with the backcourt out with injuries.

DRAFTKINGS

PJ Washington (CHA) (PF/C) – $5,700

  • Simply too cheap with all the opportunity he will get tonight.

Armoni Brooks (HOU) (PG/SG) – $3,700

  • Best value on the slate. Save your salary by playing Brooks and spend up to Trae Young if ruled in.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Trae Young (ATL) (PG) – $9,600

DK

  • Trae Young (ATL) (PG) – $10,300

KEY INJURY NEWS

  • Trae Young – DTD
