NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 12)


Lonzo Ball (CHI) (PG) – $5,800

  • Nikola Vucevic is out which gives a big usage bump to the Chicago Bulls roster. I think Lonzo can pay off his price tag on FD as I like it much better than over on DK. I favor LaVine there so for cash games and GPP, I really like Lonzo today against the Warriors.

Robert Williams (BOS) (PF/C) – $5,800

  • One of the best mid range plays over on FD. Timelord was excellent last game dropping 40.1 FD points and will look to do the same against a shorthanded Bucks team.


Kristaps Porzingis (DAL) (PF) – $6,600

  • Kristaps is one of the best plays for PF today due to his cheap price tag. I wouldn’t blame you if you played him at 7.1k over on FD but I prefer him on DK more for 6.6k. Matchup is great for him against the Spurs tonight which makes him one of my favorite plays.

Zach LaVine (CHI) (SG) – $8,000

  • LaVine actually gets the biggest usage bump when Vucevic is off the floor this season. He is clearly the first option for the Bulls and I love this matchup. The game environment is one of my favorite on the slate. I don’t mind him at all on FD for 8.4k but I don’t think you need it on a big slate.



Damian Lillard (POR) (PG) – $8,500

  • Lillard is starting to heat up and look like his usual self. Price tag is just right and I think he is a top option as a PG for FD.


Tony Bradley (CHI) (C) – $3,000

  • Bradley should start tonight but the Bulls can definitely go small against the Warriors. If given minutes, Bradley is a solid fantasy point per minute player.


  • Brandon Ingram – questionable
  • Draymond Green – questionable
  • De’Andre Hunter – questionable
  • Bogdan Bogdanovic- questionable
  • Deandre Ayton – doubtful
  • Tyrese Hailburton – questionable
