NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (October 20)


Tobias Harris (PHI) (PF/SF) – $7,200

  • What an offseason for Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers. I was expecting Ben to be playing for another team but that never happened. What we do know is that Ben is ruled out today (suspension) which immediately draws my attention to Tobias Harris because of his price tag. Even with Embiid, Tobias smashed last year and I expect the two to carry their team, with or without Ben.

Mo Bamba (ORL) (C/PF) – $5,300

  • The Orlando Magic drafted Mo 6th overall back in 2018. He never got a chance to start because of Vucevic but with Jonathan Isaac out as well, I expect Mo to do damage in his projected 25+ minutes who will be starting. When he gets minutes, he is a fantasy monster which we saw in the preseason.

Derrick White (SAS) (PG/SG) – $5,600

  • With Demar DeRozan gone, the Spurs will be relying on their backcourt. Derrick is a solid player and I feel like he is cheap on FanDuel. Currently DFS Crunch projections have him at 32.95 FD points and this matchup against the Magic is a great play in cash games.

Kevin Porter Jr. (HOU) (SF/PG) – $6,100

  • The John Wall era has officially come to an end in Houston as they are looking to trade him to another organization. The Houston Rockets have one of the most exciting backcourts in Kevin Porter Jr. and their second overall pick, Jalen Green. He is way too cheap on FD compared to his price tag on DK and the ball will run through him as he will be the primary ball handler moving forward.


Spencer Dinwiddie (WAS) (SG/PG) – $4,900

  • Before being out a year with a torn ACL, Dinwiddie was a solid player and I think people sometimes forget how important he was for the Brooklyn Nets. Now on a new team along side Bradley Beal, I believe Dinwiddie can excel this year. For today’s slate, he is only $4,900 on DK and you should build your cash game lineups around him.

Scottie Barnes (TOR) (SF/PF) – $3,400

  • DK really dropped the ball on this one as they priced the Swiss army knife, $3,400. The 4th overall pick of the Toronto Raptors this year can really do it all. Scottie can score, pass, and defend. This matchup against the Washington Wizards makes it even more appealing and it’s guaranteed he won’t be priced this low for much longer.
