NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 9)


Bobby Portis (MIL) (PF/C) – $5,800

  • BOBBY CRAZY EYES PORTIS! My day can’t get much better than this having Bobby Potus has our cover boy. I like the price here in a great spot. He can definitely get more minutes than projected and all he needs is minutes. Very solid points per minute player and is a lock for me on both sites.

Andre Drummond (PHI) (C) – $7,200

  • Finally his price tag is up which will lower the ownership but will still be chalk on both sites. Just like Portis, when given minutes, Drummond goes nuts. I wouldn’t be concerned about the B2B so lock him in for cash games. I don’t mind if you fade in GPP but definitely not in your single lineups.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL) (PF/SF) – $11,300

  • Usually the best spend up when on the slate. Greek Freak is a lock for on FD as I have the slight lean on him over here compared to DK. The Bucks can blow the 76ers out today which is always in the back of my head but if it does turn into a blow out, the damage would most likely have been from Giannis.


Bobby Portis (MIL) (PF/C) – $5,400

  • Solid mid-range play for 5.4k. It allows me to jam in Giannis and still be comfortable with my lineup. The most important reason why I like him the most is because he starts now. If for whatever reason he is not starting, I would consider fading him.

Andre Drummond (PHI) (C) – $7,700

  • Price isn’t as appealing as FD but I am hitting the lock button regardless in cash games. No need to fade him unless you think this game turns into a blowout quickly.

Furkan Korkmaz (PHI) (SG/SF) – $4,900

  • I watched the entire game last night and this guy is a chucker. The Covid train hit this team really hard and there’s really no one left. At 4.9k, this is a great price to roster a guy like Korkmaz. Seth Curry is still questionable and a GTD so if he is out, I will be locking the marksman.



Damian Lillard (POR) (PG) – $8,500

  • Chauncey Billups has been encouraging Dame Dolla to shoot the rock even more. I know he has only hit this price tag twice this year but he is a great spot.

Furkan Korkmaz (PHI) (SG/SF) – $5,400

  • Seth Curry is questionable and a GTD. If out, the marksman turns into a lock for me on both sites.


Giannis Antetokoumpo (MIL) (PF/C) – $11,400

  • A core play for me on FD and although I don’t have him locked for DK, he is pretty much a core play on both sites. Best spend up once again goes to Giannis.

George Hill (MIL) (PG) – $3,600

  • Veteran George Hill is a great salary relief play but if Seth is ruled out, there are some better options on the 76ers.
