NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 12/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Onyeka Okongwu (ATL) (C) – $3,900

  • With Clint Capela listed as doubtful, Okongwu is projected to start as their center. When given minutes, he is a fantasy point per minute player and will crush this price tag. My favorite play by far and will provide great value where you can build multiple ways in cash games.

Christian Wood (HOU) (PF/C) – $7,000

  • The matchup is really good here for Wood and he is a little too cheap on both sites. The Spurs aren’t a great defensive team when it comes to guarding bigs so Wood has a potential ceiling game. Even if he gets what he is projected, it will be worth it for 7k.


Onyeka Okongwu (ATL) (PF/C) – $3,900

  • Lock button on both sites with Capela out.

Spencer Dinwiddie (WAS) (PG) – $6,000

  • Still way too cheap on DK at 6k. 7.1k on FD is more challenging to play but I don’t mind it. Beal is out and we saw what Dinwiddie can do once given the keys to the car.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Zach LaVine (CHI) (SG) – $7,200
  • Harrison Barnes (SAC) (SF/PF) – $5,000
  • Dejounte Murray (SA) (PG/SG) – $10,200


  • Dejounte Murray (SAS) (PG) – $9,700
  • Christian Wood (HOU) (C) – $6,900
  • Robin Lopez (ORL) (C) – $4,000
