NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 4/22)

FANDUEL

LeBron James (LAL) (SF/PF) – $11,400

  • Before we talk about my plays, I want to give a shoutout to the DFS Crunch legend, chrisair. It is his birthday today so let’s all cash big and celebrate big tonight. Now for my favorite play of the day, none other than King James. The best spend up by far and is playing like he is in his prime. Lock him on both sites for cash games and build around LeBron.

Keifer Sykes (IND) (PG) – $3,700

  • Can we just take a moment and appreciate how cool of a name”Keifer Sykes” is? Besides his cool name, he is priced at 3.7k. He will play a ton of minutes again and is the best value play on the slate. He and Duane Washington are great to save some money and you can spend up to play LeBron, Booker and Westbrook.

DRAFTKINGS

LeBron James (LAL) (PG/SF) – $11,400

  • In the best game environment, I can’t find a reason not to play him in cash games. LeBron is simply playing his best basketball right now and I don’t see the Kings slowing down the King.

Keifer Sykes (IND) (PG) – $3,500

  • Dirt cheap on both sites. Sykes allows you to comfortably play studs like LeBron and Sabonis.

Domantas Sabonis (IND) (PF/C) – $9,900

  • Other than LeBron, Sabonis is my other favorite spend up. He has the potential to dominate against the Knicks who could very well be thin in their front court. Randle and Robinson are questionable and if they are out, Sabonis can possibly get a triple double which is great on DK.
