Use the promo code “RONDO” to get 50% off the weekly DFS Crunch plan. New members only.

Core Plays

Bobby Portis (MIL) (PF/C) – $5,000

  • No Giannis, Jrue or Middleton. Portis at 5k is an auto lock. Really nothing to overthink here and just lock in Bobby Potus.

Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $11,600

  • We have enough value on this big slate to pay up for Jokic for 11.6k. He is my favorite stud on both sites because of the game environment but also his individual matchup. He is making it really close now on the MVP race against Embiid and at this pace, he might just win it again.

Value Plays

Jordan Nwora (MIL) (PF/SF) – $3,500

  • With the Bucks big 3 out, Nwora will also benefit from this. Being min price, he grades out as the best point per dollar play on this giant slate.

Amir Coffey (LAC) (SF/SG) – $3,600

  • Coffey proved this season that he can be a solid player in the league. Almost everyone is resting for the Clippers which should insert Coffey into the starting lineup. These two players are the clear salary relief plays needed to play guys like Jokic and Doncic.

GPP Plays

Damian Jones (SAC) (C) – $5,300

  • Jones had a career night against the Rockets the other night. I am all over him again as my GPP play as the Rockets are the worst against defending centers. After his performance, his minutes should be secured even with Len off the bench.

Trey Lyles (SAC) (PF) – $5,400

  • The Rockets are also dead last against power forwards. This game could be a shootout and I can see Lyles have another career night like Jones. I am not too worried about the negative correlation here because we all saw they both got there.

Key Injury News

  • LeBron James – questionable
  • Anthony Davis – questionable
  • Malcolm Brogdon – questionable
