NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 23)

FANDUEL

Cory Joseph (DET) (PG) – $4,100

  • Killian Hayes is out which greatly benefits the Canadian born, lock down defender – Cory Joesph who gets the start. He continues to play 30+ minutes as a start and at 4.1k, he becomes a lock for me in cash games.

Julius Randle (NYK) (PF/C) – $8,400

  • Randle is a great play on FD today due to missing players on the Knicks team as well as his price tag. This is also a revenge game for Randle playing his former team that drafted him and also traded him away.

Talen Horton-Tucker (LAL) (SG/SF) – $6,000

  • Lebron James is out today due to his suspension which makes THT a great spot. He is 6k but we have seen a massive usage bump for THT when Lebron is off the court. He is definitely my favorite mid range play and can see him 5x-6x his price tag.

DRAFTKINGS

Cory Joesph (DET) (PG) – $3,900

  • Love the price tag here as well on DK at 3.9k. 30+ minutes who starts provides great salary relief for spend ups like Jokic tonight if he is in.

Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $11,400

  • The Joker is currently questionable due to his wrist sprain but if he is ruled in, he is my favorite spend up on DK. He should be able to keep this game close against the Portland Trailblazers.

Talen Horton-Tucker (LAL) (SG/SF) – $5,900

  • I don’t mind the price with Lebron out. THT has smashed every time Lebron was out and I don’t see why he wouldn’t again here against the Knicks.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Alec Burks (NYK) (SG/SF) – $4,500

DK

  • Alec Burks (NYK) (SG/SF) – $4,200
  • Larry Nance Jr. (POR) (PF/C) – $3,600

KEY INJURY NEWS

  • Nikola Jokic – questionable
