NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 8/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Brandon Ingram (NO) (SF) – $7,800

  • This is my favorite part of the season as the NBA trade deadline is only a couple days away now. We already have crazy news which has opened up value for DFS. Ingram has lost his good friend and teammate, Josh Hart but I wouldn’t be too worried about his morale going down as he found a new best friend in Jose Alvarado. I am locking in the slender man on FD and is a near lock on DK.

Anfernee Simons (POR) (PG/SG) – $6,500

  • With CJ departing and going to the Pelicans, it will give Simons more shots and usage while his new teammates are out. 6.5k is too cheap for the opportunity he will be given today once again and you can definitely play him on DK for 7k.


Brandom Ingram (NOP) (SG/SF) – $9,200

  • While he is 1.4k more expensive here, he is still a great play on both sites.

Justise Winslow (POR) (PF) – $3,000

  • I am actually a big fan of Winslow and I feel like he really has a chance to turn his career around the right way in Portland. He is simply too cheap at 3k as CJ, Nance and the goat Snell are all on their way to New Orleans.

Anfernee Simons (POR) (PG) – $7,000

  • 6.5k is obviously better than 7k but I think you have to play Simons on both sites today. He’s like Ingram today where both are priced up but should definitely hit value, if not more.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Jaxson Hayes (NO) (PF) – $5,500
  • Trae Young (ATL) (PG) – $9,000


  • Dennis Smith Jr. (POR) (PG) – $3,100
