NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 8)

FANDUEL

James harden (BKN) (SG/PG) – $10,200

  • KD has been ruled out for today as he played 40 minutes just last night. I know Harden played heavy minutes as well (42) but he is facing his old team and there is no indication that he will have his limits restricted. The spread is currently 3.5 so if the game stays close, Harden should smash and have himself a ceiling game against the Rockets.

Jaren Jackson (MEM) (PF/C) – $6,300

  • JJJ is a great play over on FD today for a solid mid tier option at 6.3k. We have Harden locked already so finding great value here helps with our cash game build.

Kyle Lowry (MIA) (PG) – $6,500

  • Bam has been ruled out for 4-6 weeks and now Butler just aggravated his bruised tailbone again which has him ruled out today. Lowry is a top play on both sites. He is way too cheap for 6.5k and I don’t mind him on DK for 7.2k.

DRAFTKINGS

James Harden (BKN) (PG) – $11,200

  • No KD but we still have the beard. Lock of the day on a big slate.

Tyler Herro (MIA) (PG/SG) – $7,000

  • Bam and Butler are out and I like Herro today due to his price tag. He and Lowry will have the ball in their hands which will bump their usage.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Caris LeVert (IND) (SG/SF) – $5,100
  • Cody Martin (CHA) (SG/PG) – $5,000

DK

  • Norman Powell (POR) (SF) – $4,800
  • James Johnson (BKN) (PF) – $3,300
  • Kyle Lowry (MIA) (PG) – $7,200

KEY INJURY NEWS

  • Paul George – questionable
