NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 11/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


LaMelo Ball (CHA) (SG/PG) – $8,400

  • I was watching the Hornets game the other day and I got to see how special Ball is as a player. He is no doubt my favorite spend up on both sites today. He crushed against the Chicago Bulls and has an even better matchup against the Pistons who are a very poor defensive team, especially their backcourt. We also have Harrell making his debut today which honestly should be beneficial for LaMelo.

Jerami Grant (DET) (PF) – $5,200

  • I’m running it back with Grant on the other side. If Cade is ruled out, Grant is a lock for me. Even if Cade is in, Grant is simply way too cheap for 5.2k. He just had his best game since his return from his injury dropping 36.8 fps.

Kelly Olynyk (DET) (C/PF) – $3,500

  • Trey Lyles is gone as he was traded away and Marvin Bagley is ruled out. Kelly O Canada hasn’t been producing as a high level like earlier in the season but he is min price on FD. I will be locking him in as the best salary relief and value play.


LaMelo Ball (CHA) (PG) – $9,000

  • The kid is so fun to watch and he should dominate the Detroit Pistons backcourt. Start your cash game builds with Ball on both sites.

Devin Vassell (SAS) (SF/PF) – $4,000

  • Devin should draw the start today and play big minutes with Derrick White gone as he was traded at the deadline. This will be a great opportunity for him to thrive so play him while he’s cheap as his price should only increase from here.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Terry Rozier (CHA) (PG/SG) – $6,400
  • Joel Embiid (PHI) (C) – $11,000


  • Oshae Brissett (IND) (PF/C) – $3,700
