NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 18)

FANDUEL

Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $11,600

  • The Joker has finally made it as my core play this year. It’s very surprising I haven’t written about him yet but today is the day we lock Nikola Jokic on both sites. The best and clear spend up on the slate and Barton is questionable so if he is out, it makes Jokic an even better play.

Darius Garland (CLE) (PG) – $6,000

  • Garland has the keys to the Clevland Cavaliers who are now without Sexton for a while now. He has really become a solid PG who they expected as the 5th overall pick. His usage is up there and is given heavy minutes. Great play on FD at 6k.

DRAFTKINGS

Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $12,000

  • Jokic has hit the 12k mark but I won’t be fading him. DFS Crunch projects him to get 60.44 currently and I agree with it. He should be able to take advantage of the player matchup he gets tonight vs Drummond. Lock the Joker and build around him as your main piece in cash game lineups.

Patrick Beverley (MIN) (PG) – $4,200

  • Beverley has carved himself a nice role for his new team. After multiple season with the LA Clippers, he has found a new team that he can call him. 4.2k is way too cheap on DK and he is a strong play on FD at 4,700. Lock Pat Bev and the Joker today in DK.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Patrick Beverley (MIN) PG) – $4,700
  • D’Angelo Russell (MIN) (SG/PG) – $7,200

DK

  • Anthony Edwards (MIN) (SG/SF) – $4,200

KEY INJURY NEWS

  • Tyler Herro – questionable
  • Will Barton – questionable
