NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 18/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Julius Randle (NYK) (PF/C) – $8,400

  • Unfortunately, we have a small 2 game slate but there is always money to be made. My favorite spend up is Julius Randle and although he has a tough matchup, the price tag is fair. Randle has also been inconsistent but he continues to play close to 40 minutes a night.

Cade Cunningham (DET) (PG/SG) – $6,000

  • Cade is a must play today on FD due to his price tag. He is 6k where as 7.5k on DK. No need to other think as we don’t have much value on a smaller slate.

Andrew Wiggins (GSW) (SF) – $5,800

  • I don’t like 2 game slates which is why I am playing lighter as I am forced to go in a route with Andrew Wiggins in my cash game lineup. He hasn’t been great with Curry and Thompson back in the lineup but the only reason i’d play him is because of his fairly cheap price.


Julius Randle (NYK) (PF) – $9,200

  • Priced a bit too much as i’d like but I will be playing Randle today on this very small slate.

RJ Barrett (NYK) (SF) – $7,300

  • RJ is a great play on FD and is a cash play consideration. As for DK, he is a core play for me. Barrett has been on fire lately and I see him continuing his form against the Timberwolves tonight.

Cash Play Considerations


  • RJ Barrett (NYK) (SF/SG) – $7,200


  • Immanuel Quickley (NYK) (PG/SG) – $4,000
  • Cade Cunningham (DET) (PG/SG) – $7,500
  • Trey Lyles (DET) (PF/C) – $5,100
