NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (October 24)


Joel Embiid (PHI) (C) – $9,900

  • Joel Embiid is listed questionable but that isn’t something new. I am going to assume he is in but obviously if he is ruled out, we will jump on the 76ers value. I love Embiid today on FD as my center. It’s a great sign that he played 29 minutes last game and put up a great FD night. He should feast on this young OKC team and especially with Ben Simmons out of the picture, means more points for Embiid. He is so skilled offensively and can break a slate on any given night.

Robert Williams (BOS) (PF/C) – $7,000

  • Robert Time Lord WIlliams is actually my favorite play on the slate for both sites today. He played extremely well in his season debut but did struggled last game. Time Lord is a beast when he gets minutes averaging about 1.22 FP per min. I prefer him on DK as the price is better but I am going to roster him today on FD as well. I’m expecting a bounce back game against the Houston Rockets.


De’Anthony Melton (MEM) (PG/SG) – $4,200

  • I still think Melton is still too cheap on DK. His first two games, he got 31.5 and 35.75 DK points. He is priced higher than when he started but again, I think he is underpriced and I will be locking him in cash games. This is a great salary relief play and that’s exactly what you need in NBA DFS.

Robert Williams (BOS) (C) – $6,100

  • Just like FD, I love Robert Williams today and even more on DK. The price is a lot better and I just think you need to have him in your cash build. The Rockets are undersized and just not a good defensive team. I can understand if you want to fade him on FD but I wouldn’t recommend fading him on DK. He can rack up points quickly with his energy and Al Horford is still on a minutes restriction. Time Lord is a lock button for me.
