NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 14/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Jrue Holiday (MIL) (PG/SG) – $8,500

  • Before we begin, what a Super Bowl game yesterday turned out to be. NFL is now over but we still have plenty of NBA left for us to make money in DFS. With Giannis listed doubtful this morning, we can load up on the Bucks value. My favorite on both sites is Jrue then Middleton followed by Nwora. Jrue has dominated whenever Giannis misses games and the matchup is great against Portland. There is definitely a blowout concern here but the damage should be done by Jrue and the other two I mentioned.

Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $11,300

  • It’s a big slate again and FD only allows you to play one center but with all the value we get, we can spend up for a 11.3k Joker. This is the route I am going as he should feast against the Magic front court.


Jrue Holiday (MIL) (PG) – $7,800

  • I will be locking Jrue on both sites with Giannis doubtful today.

Quentin Grimes (NYK) (SG) – $3,000

  • If Grimes gets the start, there is no way I am fading him. Even if he doesn’t the Knicks are banged up and Grimes is priced at 3k. Provides the best value by far and will easily 5x his price tag.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Kyle Kuzma (WAS) (SF/PF) – $7,700
  • Khris Middleton (MIL) (SF/SG) – $7,600
  • Seth Curry (BKN) (PG/SG) – $5,300
  • Jordan Nwora (MIL) (PF/SF) – $3,500
  • Patty Mills (BKN) (SG/PG) – $5,000


  • Jordan Nwora (MIL) (PF) – $3,000
  • Patty Mills (BKN) (SF/SF) – $4,800
  • Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $12,200
