NBA Sunday 1/17 Core Four

NBA Sunday 1/17 Core Four

We have another four game slate tonight, so playing cash games is pretty tough. There's not a ton of value that is obvious as of now, but that can change pretty quickly as we know. The biggest news as of now remains that Joel Embiid is out for the Sixers, so we have at least one team that will be a little short-handed. Let's get into the NBA Sunday 1/17 Core Four plays so we can start figuring out what pathways we need to take tonight for the green screens!

Nikola Jokic ($11,200 DK/$11,500 FD) - Oh buddy, does it shape up to be a Nikola Jokic day. While Rudy Gobert is (pretty much rightfully) widely considered a great defender, he can struggle with certain players. Joker is one of them with a bullet point. Over the last six games these two big men have faced off, Joker has a 60, 79, 54 and 69 DK point games in four of them. There was one bump in the road where he fouled out in 16 minutes, but I'm not letting that deter me in the least.
