NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (Mar 13/22)


Naji Marshall (NO) (SF) – $3,900

  • With McCollum and Ingram still out, this gives more opportunities for other Pelicans to step up. I will be loading up on the Pelicans in a great game environment against the Houston Rockets. Starting off with Naji, his price barely moved becoming one of the best value plays on the slate. For 3.9k, he is a must play and I will also be playing him on DK for 4.6k.

Herbert Jones (NO) (PF) – $4,400

  • The next Pelican I like after Naji is Herbert Jones. For 4.4k on FD compared to 5.6k on DK, he lines up as another easy plug in play. Load up on the Pelicans tonight as they provide tremendous value for your cash game and even GPP builds.

Jaxson Hayes (NO) (PF) – $4,200

  • Hayes is another player who is too cheap today. He played 34 minutes his last game so as long as he stays out of foul trouble, he is another cheap salary relief play that you shouldn’t fade on either sites.


Naji Marshall (NOP) (SF/PF) – $4,600

  • Must play on both sites.

Devonte’ Graham (NOP) (PG) – $6,100

  • Although I don’t have Graham as a core play on FD, I still have him in my current cash game build. I marked him down as a cash play consideration only due to the fact that his price tag is much higher than his last game. Regardless, I still think you play him on both sites today in a game that should stay close and there shouldn’t be any defense being played.

Jaxson Hayes (NOP) (PF/C) – $4,700

  • Strong play on both sites.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Devonte’ Graham (NO) (PG/SG) – $5,700
  • Joel Embiid (PHI) (C) – $10,700


  • Devin Booker (PHX) (PG/SG) – $9,200

Key Injury News

  • John Collins – questionable
  • Dillon Brooks – questionable
