NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 8)


Andre Drummond (PHI) (C) – $5,500

  • He was our cover boy last game and he dropped 60.5 FD points. Drummond is still a really good player and relatively young (28). He is a fantasy monster when given minutes and he got 33 last game when Embiid was out.

Terry Rozier (CHA) (SG/PG) – $5,300

  • Scary Terry is just too cheap for someone who consistently plays high minutes. He is just in a slump but that is expected as he is returning from an injury. A lock for me on FD.


Andre Drummond (PHI) (C) – $5,700

  • Joel Embiid is out. There’s no reason you shouldn’t lock Drummond in cash games. Just check his last game log when he started for injured Embiid.



Russell Westbrook (LAL) (PG/SG) – $9,400

  • Lebron is out for at least a week and that means Westbrook gets the biggest bump here against a great matchup.

Frank Kaminsky (PHO) (PF/C) – $4,300

  • Ayton is ruled out and whenever he is out, Frank crushes. McGee is a strong play but Kaminsky is overall a better player.


Russel Westbrook (LAL) (PG/SG) – $10,400

  • Price tag is much more appealing on FD and I’m strongly considering putting Westbrook as my core play but on DK, he is still viable as Lebron is out.

Frank Kaminsky (PHO) (PF/C) – $4,300

  • Frank the Tank will be chalk on both sites. Ayton is out today and can’t as for a better matchup than the Kings. Just like Westbrook, Frank can easily be considered a core play today.

Jaren Jackson Jr. (MEM) (PF/C) – $5,800

  • I don’t mind Jackson today and if his price was a bit lower, I would be locking him. Jaren is really handsy and can get into foul trouble. If he can stay out of foul trouble and stay on the court, I really like him as a play on DK.
