NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (March 1/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Luka Doncic (DAL) (PG/SG) – $10,800

  • Luka was my cover boy a couple slates ago and he almost burned my lineup with a very poor performance. Yes, he has struggled recently but that was mostly due to the fact that he faced very good defensive teams. Luka faces off the Lakers today and I will gladly have short term memory to roster him. Luka is a lock on both sites for me and I will be starting my cash game builds paying up for 77.

Scottie Barnes (TOR) (SF/PF) – $5,500

  • FVV and OG have just been ruled out so we are going to go all in on this price tag for Scottie Barnes. If the game stays close and Scottie B stays out of foul trouble, he will crush this price tag.


Luka Doncic (DAL) (PG) – $12,000

  • Lock on both sites.

Daniel Gafford (WAS) (C) – $3,600

  • The Wizards starting lineup has been announced and Gafford will be their big man today. He has been chalk due to his extremely cheap price tag and will continue to be one of the highest owned players today. Lock Gaffy up today with Luka. Also I am strongly consider putting KCP as my third core play for DK. I’ll give out an update in our Discord channel which is free to join.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Jayson Tatum (BOS) (SF/PF) – $8,900
  • Andrew Wiggins (GSW) (SF) – $5,500


  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (WAS) (SG) – $4,400
  • Marcus Morris Sr. (LAC) (SF/PF) – $5,900
