NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 5/22)

FANDUEL

Keifer Sykes (IND) (PG) – $3,700

  • We are going right back to Keifer Sykes and this time, he is my favorite play of the slate making him the cover boy. I was watching him play and he is a really solid player who can definitely stay in the league. He is undersized but plays big which is always nice to see. I am really not sure why he is still 3.7k on FD and 3.3k on DK. He played 33 minutes then 37 minutes which is insane value.

Khris Middleton (MIL) (SF/SG) – $7,200

  • Giannis is ruled out which makes Middleton at 7.2k a must play. Jrue is a lot harder to roster and I am comfortable playing Sykes and other PG.

DRAFTKINGS

Keifer Sykes (IND) (PG) – $3,300

  • 3.3k is just way too cheap for a player who is ball dominate and plays an average of 35 mins per game.

Anfernee Simons (POR) (PG/SG) – $5,300

  • It was really cool to see Simons have a career night in honor of his grandpa who passed away the night before. Today, Simons faces the Miami Heat and for 5.3k, I think he is a strong play on DK. Dame and CJ are still out and I expect him to play 36+ minutes.

Khris Middleton (MIL) (SG/SF) – $7,300

  • No Giannis, no problem.
