NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 22)

FANDUEL

Jonas Valanciunas (NO) (C) – $8,000

  • Joval has been solid all year and he is priced at 8k over on FD today. I really like the price tag for cash games and the matchup here can’t get any better. The Timberwolves are a bad rebounding team and Joval averages little over 3 offensive rebounds per game. It’s a little harder to play him on DK but as of now, I plan on jamming him in and finding cheap value plays.

Darius Garland (CLE) (SG) – $6,200

  • Darius has been excellent in his last 5 games. 4 of them, he dropped over 30+. The last time he played the Nets which was on Nov 17, he racked up 45 FD points. Very solid mid range play today.

DRAFTKINGS

Seth Curry (PHI) (SG) – $4,900

  • Tobias Harris is doubtful tonight and Embiid is still out due to Covid. Seth Curry benefits here and I know he is inconsistent at times but I don’t think you will find a better mid range play over on DK.

Georges Niang (PHI) (SF/PF) – $4,200

  • Niang also gets a bump with Harris out of the game. Surprisingly, he has been very good for his new team and if you plan on playing Joval at 8.9k, you will need to save and you get salary relief here with Niang at 4.2k.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Bobby Portis (MIL) (PF/C) – $6,300
  • DeAndre’ Bembry (BKN) (SG/SF) – $3,700

  • Jalen Suggs (ORL) (SG/SF) – $5,000
