NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 11)


Bam Adebayo (MIA) (C/PF) – $8,200

  • Bam went into early foul trouble last night then erupted in the second half against the Lakers. That was mainly due to Jimmy Butler spraining his ankle. Since Butler is out, look to load up on the Heat tonight on a small 3 game slate and start your builds with Bam as a core play.

Kyle Lowry (MIA) (PG) – $6,500

  • Butler is out so the Heat will depend on Bam and Lowry. Great price here on FD. DK is still playable but it’s not as appealing at 7.1k.


Bam Adebayo (MIA) (C) – $7,400

  • My favorite player of the slate. Everything will go through Bam as Butler is out tonight. Price is solid on both sites and look for Bam to be the chalkiest player.

Tyler Herro (MIA) (PG/SG) – $6,100

  • Herro gets a massive bump with Butler out. I love him on DK more than FD due to pricing. You can definitely play him on FD and it’s a tough decision for me. Still considering him over there.



Precious Achiuwa (TOR) (PF/C) – $4,900

  • Solid mid range play as it’s hard to find in a small slate.

Fred VanVleet (TOR) (SG/PG) – $8,100

  • Steady Freddy has been consistent and that’s what you need in cash games. One of my favorite plays that isn’t a core play.

Duncan Robinson (MIA) (SG/SF) – $3,900

  • Great value play with Butler out.

Tyler Herro (MIA) (SG/SF) – $6,400

  • Should be the reason you cash or don’t cash. Big decision on whether to play him on FD.

Andre Drummond (PHI) (C) – $9,100

  • Price is up but no Embiid still. Tobias is available tonight so I’m not putting Drummond as a core play at this price.


Gary Trent Jr. (SG/SF) – $5,000

  • Much cheaper here on DK. Although FD scoring favors Gary, I like him on DK due to his price for a viable last piece.

Duncan Robinson (SG/SF) – $3,800

  • Great value play with Butler out.


  • Seth Curry – GTD
