NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 9/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


LaMelo Ball (CHA) (PG) – $8,400

  • Charlotte Hornets day! It’s really unfortunate that Gordon Hayward keeps getting freak injuries and we all wish him a speedy recover but this means more opportunities for other players on the roster. All are underpriced and in one of the highest total on the slate, it’s a no brainer. My favorite play is LaMelo Ball on both sites.

Terry Rozier (CHA) (SG/PG) – $6,400

  • Scary Terry should crush with no Hayward as he is dependant on scoring. Terry will get more shots up and for 6.4k, a little too cheap in cash games.

Miles Bridges (CHA) (SF) – $7,200

  • Bridges is my last core play on FD and I have him tied with Rozier as my second favorite Hornet on this site. All three of these guys should crush against one of the best matchups in the Chicago Bulls today. This will definitely be a fun game to watch.


LaMelo Ball (CHA) (PG) – $8,800

  • Lock in the superstar kid.

Terry Rozier (CHA) (PG/SG) – $6,900

  • Rozier price is $500 more expensive but I can’t find myself fading him in cash games. Possibly fine with fading in GPP but my core plays are currently for cash builds only.

Kelly Oubre Jr. (CHA) (SG/SF) – $5,600

  • I don’t have Kelly in my optimal FD build as I am prioritizing Washington over him as my 4th but on DK, you can get 5 which is exactly the route I will be going. I am confident all 5 will hit value so LFG Hornets!

Cash Play Considerations


  • P.J. Washington (CHA) (PF/C) – $4,900
  • Jusuf Nurkic (POR) (C) – $7,700


  • PJ Washington (CHA) (PF/C) – $4,900
