NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 16/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Jordan Poole (GSW) (PG/SG) – $4,900

  • Steph Curry went down with a wrist last game. Let’s hope it’s nothing serious as it was his shooting hand. With Curry out today, Poole is an auto lock on both sites because we all know what he does when he’s given the opportunity.

Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $10,900

  • The Lakers look like a mess as they got blown out by Jokic and the Denver Nuggets last night. Jokic only played 28 minutes so after Poole, he is my next favorite play. Easily the best spend up on both sites on this small 3 game slate.

Christian Wood (HOU) (PF/C) – $7,300

  • Wood seems to always dominate against the Kings. It does help that the Kings are a horrible rebounding team and if Wood didn’t get into foul trouble last time, he was on pace for a ceiling game. I am going right back to Wood on FD.


Jordan Poole (GSW) (PG/SG) – $5,400

  • Lock in Poole with no Curry today.

Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $12,000

  • Obviously the price tag is better on FD but he is a must play on DK for me.

Cash Play Considerations


  • De’Aaron Fox (SAC) (PG) – $8,000
  • Andrew Wiggins (GSW) (SF) – $5,800


  • Andre Igudala (GSW) (SF) – $3,700
  • Jeff Green (DEN) (SF/PF) – $3,800

Key Injury News

  • None
