NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (Mar 11/22)


Devonte’ Graham (NO) (PG/SG) – $4,300

  • Graham stands out as the best play on both sites with Ingram and now McCollum ruled out. The Pelicans will be popular, starting with the former Hornets guards. Not only is this a revenge game for him, he is also very cheap at 4.3k on both sites. He should play 30+ minutes in a good game environment so I am locking him on FD and DK to start my cash game builds.

Luka Doncic (DAL) (PG/SG) – $10,700

  • On a big slate like today, there will be enough value to spend up on the studs you want. For me, I am going to target and prioritize Luka as he is playing at an elite level but also, the matchup can’t get any better in the Houston Rockets. I didn’t put him as a core play on DK as he is 12k but I plan on playing him on both sites. Lock for me on FD and strong play on DK.

Alperen Sengun (HOU) (C/PF) – $5,200

  • Staying in the same game, Sengun is another must play and is actually my third lock. His price is too cheap for the value he brings. He is a points per minute monster but this play is all dependant on if Wood is out or not. If Wood is out, Sengun will get another start who will crush when given the opportunity.


Devonte” Graham (NOP) (PG) – $4,300

  • Lock on both sites.

Alperen Sengun (HOU) (PF/C) – $6,200

  • A little priced up but if Wood is out, he is a must play. If Wood is in, I would fade and look at other options.
