NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (October 26)


Kristaps Porzingis (DAL) (PF/C) – $7,000

  • Jason Kidd was right. He said he would use Kristaps properly and will make sure he is an important piece moving forward. I blame Rick Carlisle for the way he misused the 7’3 big man but this year, his usage rate is up and is averaging a higher FD point / min. We got him at $6,800 last time out and today is not much different at $7,000. He is in a prime spot and I love this matchup. Lock for me on FD for cash games.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (OKC) (SG/PG) – $7,100

  • With 2 strikes, SGA did not strikeout and had himself a monster night against the 76ers with 52.2 FD points. He was awful the first 2 games but finally found himself in his 3rd game. This is the SGA we all know and will continue to expect this season. The current spread is -9.5 for the warriors but if the game stays close, SGA will be the main reason why. These two teams play with such a high pace which benefits SGA and I just love his price here on FD.


Dejounte Murray (SAS) (PG) – $7,300

  • I like the price here for Dejounte at $7,300. His usage rate is good and although he is struggling from the field, the Spurs depend on their PG. The matchup is fine but again, the price is still cheap as he has finished with 41, 37.75 and 33.75 DK points. It’s not trending in the direction we want but I can see him change that against the Lakers. I also have him in my FD build but definitely prefer him over on DK.

Keldon Johnson (SAS) (PF) – $5,200

  • Keldon is having himself a big jump in his 3rd season. He is very affordable and is a top forward play on this slate. Matchup might be tough today against AD but he gets minutes which I look for in cash games. Look for Dejounte and Keldon to lead the Spurs tonight to a win, especially if Lebron is ruled out.
