NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 27/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Luka Doncic (DAL) (PG/SG) – $11,100

  • We have been crushing so far in the second half of the NBA season as we could possibly make it 4 in a row on both sites. It’s always a good day when 77 is the cover boy as he has a great matchup against the Golden State Warriors. His usage rate is insanely high with KP no longer on the team near 40%. Luka is my favorite spend up on both sites and should be the first player you target. I prefer him on DK but as of now, I plan on playing him on both sites.

Drew Eubanks (POR) (C/PF) – $4,100

  • Drew didn’t have the best start for his new team but he was a solid fp per min player for the Spurs. If he gets the chance to start again, I expect him to have a better game today. You will need salary relief plays and Eubanks stands out as one of the best on this slate.


Luka Doncic (DAL) (PG) – $11,700

  • Must play on DK.

Dwight Howard (LAL) (C) – $3,000

  • Dwight Howard had a monster game in just 26 minutes of action while being the starter. His price didn’t budge and he is only 3.7k on FD. It was a toss up between him and Luka on who would be my favorite but I ended up with 77 as he is one of the best players in the world who can have a slate breaking game. Going back to Dwight, he is simply way too cheap if he gets the start again.

Kelly Olynyk (DET) (PF/C) – $3,700

  • With Bagley out, this will give Kelly O more opportunities at a really cheap price tag. I don’t mind him on FD but prefer him here where we can play him for 3.7k. Let’s just hope he doesn’t have butter fingers and can catch the rock today.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Josh Hart (POR) (SG/SF) – $6,900
  • Dwight Howard (LAL) (C) – $3,700


  • Jordan Poole (GSW) (PG/SG) – $5,000
  • Drew Eubanks (POR) (C) – $3,900
