NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 21/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Joe Ingles (UTA) (SG/SF) – $3,700

  • It must be Christmas again because we have Jingle Joe as our cover boy! Spida is still out so the Jazz players get bumps but my favorite is Joe Ingles. He hasn’t been productive which is why his price tag is close to min price but just last game, he dominated and put up almost 30 FD points.

Cade Cunningham (DET) (PG/SG) – $5,200

  • Playing Cade might be a trap but for 5.2k, i’ll keep falling for it. Also, not to mention that he is 2.2k more expensive on DK but for this price tag here, he becomes viable in cash games.


Joe Ingles (UTA) (SG/SF) – $4,200

  • Also on DK, Joe is a must play in cash games.

Ja Morant (MEM) (PG) – $9,300

  • My first spend up that I am targeting in Ja Morant on both sites. Although, he isn’t a core play on FD, he is a strong cash play considerations and I will most likely have him in my final optimal build. I should also mention that I traded Beal and Lowry for Morant from Chrissair in our season long fantasy league. LFG Morant!

Cash Play Considerations


  • Ja Morant (MEM) (PG) – $9,100


  • Jordan Clarkson (UTA) (PG/SG) – $5,800

Key Injury News

  • Rudy Gobert – questionable
  • Marcus Morris – questionable
