NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 12/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Kyle Kuzma (WAS) (SF/PF) – $7,700

  • We crushed the slate last night from our accurate projections and let’s continue it today on this big slate. Disappointing news as Bradley Beal is out for the season with a wrist injury. KP is still out and I don’t know how long he can even stay on the court until he gets hurt again. This greatly benefits Kuzma as he should be the number 1 option moving forward. He is my favorite play on both sites at 7.7k on FD and 7.9k on DK.

LaMelo Ball (CHA) (PG) – $8,500

  • LaMelo Ball had a great start to the season then slowed down for a little while. Now recently, he is starting to heat up again dropping 59.3 fps and 65 just last night. His price is only $100 more today and I will be jumping all over this price as he can easily put up slate breaking numbers as a 20 year old.

Terry Rozier (CHA) (SG/PG) – $6,400

  • Scary Terry also had a monster game last night and it’s reassuring that both LaMelo and Terry can put up a ceiling game on the same night. Hayward being out greatly benefits everyone on the Hornets, especially these two who I will be locking.

Jonas Valanciunas (NO) (C) – $6,900

  • I really like the Hornets backcourt today but the player I like after Kuzma is actually Joval. He is underpriced on both sites and has a really good matchup against the Spurs tonight.


Kyle Kuzma (WAS) (SF/PF) – $7,900

  • Kuzma notched a triple double the other night and I feel like he can be a triple double threat every game now that Beal is gone and KP off the court. Lock in Kuzma as your starting foundation in cash game lineups and build around the number 1 option for the Washington Wizards.

Jonas Valanciunas (NOP) (C) – $7,500

  • I get CJ is playing now which is why Joval hasn’t been producing at a level he should be at but his price is too cheap for a player who still gets his minutes and touches. Kuzma and Joval are locks for me on both sites.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (WAS) (SG/SF) – $4,300


  • Devin Vassell (SAS) (SG/SF) – $4,200
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (WAS) (SG/SF) – $4,100

Key Injury News

  • LeBron James – questionable
  • Russell Westbrook – questionable
  • Zach LaVine – questionable
