NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 28/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Brandon Goodwin (CLE) (PG) – $5,300

  • It saddens me that Rajon Rondo is out as he would have been the potential starter with Garland also injured but we will settle for Brandon Goodwin. He has been pretty solid for the Cavs posting almost 1 fp per minute. It also helps that they have no other point guards except Tim Frazier who they recently signed. I wouldn’t be too worried about Frazier so a 5.3k and 5.2k Goodwin stands out as a great value play.

Jimmy Butler (MIA) (SF/SG) – $8,600

  • Lowry is out today which will benefit Butler. He doesn’t really get a big usage bump but he will have the ball in his hands more and should get a few extra fantasy points. There’s not much to say here other than if you believe in narratives, Butler is playing his former team in the Chicago Bulls. I’m sure he will want to get this win against the team who drafted him back in 2011.


Brandon Goodwin (CLE) (PG) – $5,200

  • Must play on both sites.

Gabe Vincent (MIA) (PG) – $3,600

  • Like I mentioned above, Kyle Lowry is out so Gabe Vincent should get the start and keep Herro on the bench. Gabe is a sniper and should benefit with Butler handling the ball most of the possession. 3.6k is simply too cheap for a starting PG so fire him up for cash games.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Mo Bamba (ORL) (C) – $4,500
  • Giannis Antetokoumpo (MIL) (PF/SF) – $11,500
  • Dejounte Murray (SA) (PG/SG) – $9,700


  • James Johnson (BKN) (PF) – $4,100
