NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 7/22)

FANDUEL

Jordan Clarkson (UTA) (PG/SG) – $5,200

  • If the flamethrower, Jordan Clarkson is able to play tonight, he becomes everyones favorite play on the slate. Clarkson, Gay and Whiteside are all questionable which we will have to monitor. Conley, Mitchell and Gobert are all out so if all of the three questionable players are in, they will be all locks on both sites.

Rudy Gay (UTA) (PF/SF) – $4,800

  • Just like Clarkson, Gay is questionable but if ruled in, he is a lock on both sites as well. The Utah Jazz are missing their 3 best players so Clarkson and Gay will be the top options tonight.

Jalen Brunson (DAL) (PG/SG) – $5,300

  • Luka is doubtful and whenever he is out, all eyes are on Brunson. He is a very solid player and could easily be a starting point guard for most NBA teams. He is way too cheap on FD and is my third lock of the day. On the other hand, Brunson is priced at 7k on DK and I still really like him as a play there.
