NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 25/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Devin booker (PHO) (SG) – $9,000

  • Booker had a monster game last night posting 63 fps and I expect him to crush again here against the Pelicans. We got news that Holiday and Payne are out which means we get more POINT BOOK. Over the last 5 games, he has been getting a lot more stocks (steals and blocks) which really helps on FD (+3) compared to DK (+2). No brainer again to lock in Booker on both sites without CP3 so start your builds with the best SG in the league.

Cole Anthony (ORL) (PG/SG) – $6,100

  • I don’t really like rostering Cole but his price tag is pretty cheap at 6.1k on FD. He did cool off right before the All Star break but this is a new half of basketball and our projections currently have him at 35-36. Booker and Cole are great starting pieces for your cash game lineups.


Devin Booker (PHX) (PG/SG) – $9,200

  • Must play on both sites.

Lonnie Walker IV (SAS) (PG/SG) – $3,900

  • Lonnie is a very good play here on DK due to his price tag. On top of this, he increased his points per min rate this season and looks to keep trending in the right direction. A very good salary relief play in a great matchup which will allow you to play Booker and LeBron if ruled active.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Kyle Kuzma (WAS) (SF/PF) – $7,600
  • Cameron Johnson (PHO) (SF) – $4,200
  • Russell Westbrook (LAL) (PG) – $7,000


  • LeBron James (LAL) (SF) – $10,600
  • Mo Bamba (ORL) (C) – $4,500

Key Injury

  • LeBron James – questionable
