DFS DraftKings

This was a mixed bag of a weekend. It was a sprint race weekend, meaning the starting grid for Sunday was set by the winning positions of the sprint race held on Saturday, not by qualifying like it usually is. 

It’s an attempt to shake things up, but I don’t know…I’ll keep my opinions out of it. One thing it does do is limit the teams’ ability to properly tune the race car. So typically, what we see is what we get.

It rained during the Friday sessions of Practice 1 and sprint qualifying so that added another layer of complexity to this weekend. We were gifted a demonstration of each constructor’s capabilities and each driver’s talents. This should make breaking down this race weekend a little more straightforward. For this reason, I changed the format for this race week article with an emphasis on each team more so than price point plays.

Team Breakdowns for Formula 1: DFS Race Week Imola

Ferrari $11,600 and Red Bull Racing $11,00. This is where the battle is. This race should come down to which one of these 4 drivers puts it all together. The Red Bull of Max Verstappen $10,400 and Sergio Perez $9000 are the team to beat this weekend.

The Ferrari’s of Charles LeClerc at $11,000 and Carlos Sainz at $10,000 will be right in the mix, I would do my best to have a share of drivers and constructors in every DraftKings lineup I make. 

Merc long shots

If you’re playing multi-lines and want to get different, the Mercs looked off in the speed traps. Mercedes finds itself in no firm position going into race Week 4: Imola, Italy, and can try different strategies that the Red Bull and Ferrari probably would not make. 

Mercedes $9000 seems to be set up for long runs. George Russell starts P11, 3 spots in front of his teammate he is also less expensive at $8600. Compared to Lewis Hamilton at $9600, I would err on the side of George.

The rest of the field???

We have no idea how the McLarens $8000 is going to perform on the medium tire. Due to issues overall we have not seen the Mclaren in race pace, and during the final laps of the sprint race, they were falling back on the timesheets. If McLaren has the race pace combined with their overall speed, Lando Norris $8000 and Daniel Ricciardo $7600 make for roster-worthy drivers.

Alpine $6400 performs better on the soft tire. A trend we had seen in Australia. Esteban Ocon, $6400, starting in P16, Imola being an older circuit and has fewer overtake spots, Esteban might find it hard to move up.

Fernando Alonso, $5800 has been experiencing reliability issues and that’s concerning so I wouldn’t go crazy, but he should be strong in the speed runs.

With a good strategy, Alonso could stay in the positions he should gain on Sunday while beating his teammate for maximum points.

Valtteri Bottas, $6800, is in the same boat as the Mclaren’s; we just don’t know how well his long-run race pace is. Too bad Zhou Guanyu is starting in P20, the Alfa Romeo $5200 would make for an intriguing constructor play.

The Hass’ of Kevin Magnussen, $5400 has shown pace on the soft tires. However the Haas is slow in long-run form, so it feels like the Haas was set up more for the sprint race on Saturday.

He and teammate, Mick Schumacher $4400 started on the medium tires during the sprint race and after being beaten in the first half, the medium tire held up and helped the Haas gain starting positions in the top 10, P10, and P8.

The Haas $4600 should be a good low-owned value constructor play.

The Last Guys In

Yuki Tsunoda $4800 might be the sleeper play of the weekend.

Yuki and his newfound long-run pace in the Alpha Tauri, and Yuki’s teammate Pierre Gasly’s $7200 getting into an accident in the sprint race making him start in P17 are all positives in Yuki’s favor.

Yuki’s team in Alpha Tauri, $3800 will be a team I take a few shots with if I need a cheap constructor to fit the top drivers in my DraftKings lineups.

Alex Albon $3600 will be a driver I’ll be heavy on until his price is in the $5000s. He is just better than Nicholas Latifi and should earn the 5 bonus points every week

Aston Martin is a team full of “last guy in” options. The Aston has not shown much this racing season, but with a capable veteran driver like Sebastian Vettel, $3400, and to a lesser degree, Lance Stroll $3200, the Aston can take advantage of strategies and limited overtaking and could find its way into good fantasy scoring positions.

A team I won’t be featuring, but if I need salary savings, the Aston makes for potentially low-owned punt plays

In Conclusion

Should be an interesting weekend, let’s see what kind of impact the sprint race weekend has for the real race this coming Sunday morning. As always thanks for reading, catch me in the discord chat @tcuz86. Best of luck.

Welcome to the 5th edition of Formula 1 Race Week: Miami, May 2022. Round 5 of the championship introduces Miami Autodrone to the Formula 1 calendar. This 3.36 mile street circuit winds it’s way around the Hard Rock Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins.

Miami reminds me of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia where high speed long runs meet slow corners. The Ferrari duo should do well in slow corners, and the Red Bull should get them back in the straights. With an inaugural race anything can happen when the green flag drops Sunday the 8th 3:30pm EST.

Formula 1 DFS: Top Captain Options

Charles Leclerc, Ferrari $17,100. Charles was in the top 2 in all three practice sessions and put himself on the pole to start the race, once again. Miami seems to be a narrow track which should play into Charles gaining maximum DraftKings points by leading laps and a podium finishing position. If you’re playing one lineup or a Single Entry, Charles makes a lot of sense in the Captain position.

Max Verstappen, Red Bull $17,700. Max had an interesting weekend thus far. He started Friday in Free Practice 1 in P3, than followed that up with mechanical issues in FP2. The crew fixed their issue and got Max on the track for FP3 and qualifying. He is set up for long runs and will be featured in my captain spot.

It’s more than possible to play both guys in your lineups utilizing the Cheap 5 points value plays (found later in the article) and dropping down to the mid-priced constructor options, which are not so bad this week.

Low owned captain options

Sergio Perez, Red Bull $15,900. Sergio looked just as competitive as Max in the sister Red Bull. Practing all weekend in the top 3, Sergio will be heavily in the mix for the captain options.

An interesting play this week is Carlos Sainz, Ferrari $15,000. After a tough start to the weekend, crashing in FP1 and getting limited run; Carlos rebounded and qualified in P2. With his recent struggles, he should garner lower ownership and makes for an interesting GPP play.

Formula 1 DFS: Captain options summary

Overall, I would not hesitate to mix and match these top 4 salaried drivers. For DraftKings purposes, keep in mind the 5 points for defeating your teammate as the difference between a 1st place takedown in your tournaments and a 2nd place finish can be as little as 4 points.

Formula 1: DFS Mid Tier options

The mid-tier options are wide open this week. This is where DraftKings scoring strategy comes into play. After 5 weeks of race data, still a small sample size though, there have been fantasy scoring trends; one being: beat your teammate…even better if your select driver finishes in the top 10, and the teammate finished outside that range.

Those 5 points are critical, and if you’re playing multiple lineups this week, I would rotate through the driver options of:

Alpha Tauri

Pierre Gasly $5400 and Yuki Tsunoda $4200. On the Hard compound tires, the Alpha Tauri’s were firmly in play in the top 10. They might opt for a one stop strategy and try to gain track position in the pits. Considering their time on the hards, it could be a strategy that pays off.

Choosing between the two is the really difficult part, but Gasly seems to have the upper hand this weekend. Don’t hesitate to use Alpha Tauri $3800 in the constructor position either.


Lando Norris $8600 Lando should get the 5 Deafeat Teammate points this week as he starts 6 positions ahead in P8. The McLaren is set up for a 2 stop stratergy and has not been really impressive in the long runs.

Aston Martin

Sebastian Vettel $3600 and Lance Stroll $3200 The Aston seem to be mimicking Mercedes this weekend, following the same practice strategy all weekend. They will be worthy of roster spots as last man in options for your DraftKings lineups.

The Alfa Romeo of Valtteri Bottas $7400 qualified well, but I have a feeling Valtteri loses out on grid positions during pit rotations.

Formula 1: DFS Cheap 5 points options

Alex Albon $3,400 is always a good cheap 5 points option. Albon has been getting the most out of his Williams, and his teammate really sucks.

Other Options include $9200 Lewis Hamilton and $5800 Fernando Alonso.

Formula 1: DFS Constructor options

  • Red Bull for $12,000 this weekend. It’s hard to overlook what they can do at P3 and P4, especially in the 2nd half of the race.
  • Ferrari $11,600. If Sainz and Leclerc can stay in the top 3, the Ferrari makes for a hell of a play.
  • Mercedes $8400, their race pace always keeps them in the fight.
  • Alpha Tauri $3800, lets see what that long run pace can do.

Formula 1: Race Week Miami DFS overall strategy

I’m building from the bottom up with weekend in DraftKings. Its tough to outscore the potential 60 points from a constructor finishing with both drivers on the podium. After stressing staying in the midfield with longer run potential (the Alpha Tauris and Astons) Ill be sprinkling in the drivers whom have seriously outscored their teammates (Bottas and Hamilton)

As always I’m excited about another race and am happy to see the hype behind this one. Its been fun watching people like George Lucas, Tom Brady, Michael Jordan, Danica Patrick, freaking Snoop Dogg running around the paddock. If you have questions please feel free to hit me up in discord @tcuz86. Have fun and thanks for reading Formula 1: Race Week Miami May 2022.

Welcome to the NASCAR DFS Pit Stop for Sunday afternoon’s Truck series from World Wide Technology Raceway. Unlike what we saw Friday and Saturday night at Daytona, we won’t be seeing a similar style racing from the Trucks at Gateway.

NASCAR DFS: Dominators

Chandler Smith ($10,900)

Starting Position: 12th

Smith hasn’t been great in his three races this season in the #51, but he did have a great race here last season. In the 2019 version of this race Smith came home with a top 5 finish (4th) in a KBM truck after starting 25th. Smith has led laps in 2 of the 3 races he’s been in this season. I think that Sunday could be the day for Smith to finally break through.

Brett Moffitt ($10,00)

Starting Position: 2nd

Brett Moffitt has been of the best drivers in this series over the last 7 races but doesn’t have a win to show for it. Over those seven races, Moffitt has finished 6th or better in six, including two second place finishes. Moffitt doesn’t offer the PD upside that some of the other drivers in this tier do, but he has the best chance to dominate this race in my opinion. In the aforementioned 7 race span earlier, Moffitt has led laps in every race including leading 50 last week at Dover

Other Options: Sheldon Creed ($11,500) – I don’t love Creed’s price, but if you can make him fit and your comfortable doing so, go for it!, Austin Hill ($10,500)


Ben Rhodes ($9,200)

Starting Position: 5th

Ben Rhodes has quietly been one of the better DFS drivers of late. Rhodes has six top 10 finishes in his last 8 races and has not finished lower than 14th in any of those races. Unfortunately, Rhodes doesn’t lead too many laps so his upside is capped, but if he can get up front he could be one of the best GPP plays.

Derek Kraus ($8,200)

Starting Position: 10th

Kraus has never raced in the Truck series at Gateway, but he has been a very consistent driver this season, especially recently. Over his last 10 races in the Truck series, Kraus has at least 37 DKFP in 8 of those 10 races and is averaging 36.3 points per race over that 10 race span. With limited upside because of where he starts, Kraus is better of a s GPP play

Sam Mayer ($7,500)

Starting Position: 15th

Mayer is a 17 year old driver making his first venture into the Truck series this season. While he hasn’t run a race in this series at Gateway, he does have two 3rd place finishes here in the ARCA series, including Saturday nights race. Mayer is in the #24 GMS truck, so he has good equipment and I think a top 10 is a possibility for him on Sunday.

Other Options: Todd Gilliland ($9,000), Raphael Lessard ($8,000), Tanner Gray ($7,600)

NASCAR DFS: Value Tier Rankings

  1. Tyler Hill – $6,500 – P31
  2. Carson Hocevar – $7,300 – P16
  3. Dawson Cram – $6,000 – P25
  4. Austin Wayne Self – $6,400 – P21
  5. Kyle Donahue – $5,600 – P32
  6. Spencer Boyd – $5,800 – P24

Welcome to the NASCAR DFS Pit Stop for Saturday night's Cup Series race from Daytona International Speedway. If you didn't play the Xfinity race or read the article, here is what I wrote about this track: For those who are new to NASCAR DFS this season, Daytona is what used to be known as a restrictor-plate race and not your typical oval track race. NASCAR has switched from the "plates" of old that began being used 1988, so technically it's not plate racing because they implemented new tapered spacers. These spacers still have the same effect on the engine, they still restrict the airflow to the engine and allow for the cars to be bunched up at 200 mph running 2 or 3 wide. This type of racing leads to a plethora of accidents and many of the top cars being out early.One thing I need to remind everyone of is not to worry about salary! You SHOULD have salary left over after you build your lineups on Saturday. When I build lineups for superspeedway races, especially in the Cup series, I wi...

The Northern Trust: Initial Picks


The Northern Trust: Initial Picks

Welcome to round one of the FedEx Cup Playoffs where we will have a field of 125. With fewer in the field it will be very important to get all your picks through the cut, and with that in mind, I’ll likely be going for a more balanced approach this week (which will still allow you to grab a golfer from the elite price range). Tune into tonight’s Livestream at 8:30 for more on the Northern Trust (and subscribe to the Win Daily Podcast if you haven’t already). Be on the lookout for more PGA DFS content over at Win Daily Sports! Let’s get to The Northern Trust: Initial Picks. Note all prices for DraftKings.

Bryson DeChambeau (11100) – Bryson’s length will benefit him here and he won on this track in 2018. Also happens to be in good form with a 4th place finish at the PGA Championship.  Of all of the guys in the elite price range, this one is my favorite. 

Jason Day (9300) – Appears to be healthy and has been locking in Top 10 finishes in his last four tournaments, including a 4th place at the PGA Championship.  He has gained strokes APP for five tournaments in a row.  He was also 20th on this track in 2018 and finished 6th, 4th and 1st in the three years prior to 2018.

Daniel Berger (8900) – This price range has talent everywhere but I’m going to lean on a guy who I think has had some of the best form this entire year.  He gains strokes in every category and since the restart he is averaging over two strokes gained per round.  He also has a solid track record on this course.

Adam Scott (8400) – Surprised me with a 22nd  at the PGA Championship after an extremely long layoff (was his first action since the restart).  His track record on this course is impeccable.  Even for not having played much golf since the restart, Scott is ranked 36th in the FedEx Cup Standings and therefore well within striking distance of the top spot.

Billy Horschel (7900) – Probably should have won last week and finished 3rd on this track in 2018.  Perhaps the biggest thing going for Horschel is that his game consistently ramps up around playoff time.  He seemed loose and yet locked in last week.  I’ll see if I can catch him again in great form this week.

Matthew Wolff (7800) – He’s striking the ball too well to ignore at this price.  This guy could may have won the PGA Championship if he were able to sink a few 6 foot putts down the stretch.  Not afraid to hang with the big boys down the stretch on Sundays.

Ryan Palmer (7300) – This range puts us squarely in hit or miss territory and that’s exactly what you are getting with Palmer.  He’s been very good OTT and APP and if that stays the course then it will only require a decent putter for him to pay off his pricetag in a big way.  Be careful with being overweight on Palmer as when it goes bad, it usually goes very bad, but the upside is there.

Emiliano Grillo (7000) – Really want to do my best this week to not sink down into this range, but if I’m going to do it, I’m going to go with a great ball striker who can’t seem to figure out the putter (a hot putter can happen to anyone).  Grillo is in good form as of late and his last three at TPC Boston have all resulted in made cuts and that includes a 2nd place in 2016.

Talor Gooch (6500) – Ball striking has been good lately and since the restart he’s either good for a missed cut or a Top 25 finish.  If he obtains the latter he pays off his pricetag easily.  Hoping to ride the good form from last week.

Welcome to the NASCAR DFS Pit Stop for Saturday afternoon’s Xfinity Series race from the Daytona Road Course. This is the first ever NASCAR race to be run on this track. Drivers will have zero track time to prepare and learn this race track. I know some drivers were using the iRacing set up to practice, so we will see if that was helpful come Saturday

One thing you won’t see this week is Austin Cindric ($11,000) in my article for the first time on a road course. I know he is the best driver right now in the series, and on road courses, but starting on the pole gives us little upside. I would rather pay down a little or go up the $400 to Allmendinger. If you want to play Cindric, I won’t talk you out of it, but I just think there are better ways to spend your salary this week.

NASCAR DFS: Dominators

AJ Allmendinger ($11,400)

Starting Position: 11th

Allmendinger is finally starting in a spot where he won’t be extreme chalk thanks to NASCAR’s new qualifying formula, replacing the random draw. As the highest price driver with less upside then usual, we should get AJ at much less ownership as people will flock to the drivers further back in the field. Allmendinger has four top 5 finishes in his last 5 road course races.

Earl Bamber ($9,900)

Starting Position: 29th

Earl who? Earl Bamber is one of the most experienced drivers to never sit in a NASCAR car until Saturday. Bamber has won pretty much every where he has raced and is the defending IMSA GT champion. Not only is he the defending IMSA champion, he has won the 24 hour of Le Mans twice in his career. Bamber has even gone as far as replacing the pedals in his RCR Chevy with the Porsche pedals he is used to using in his IMSA car. I really like Bamber today, and even though he might be chalky, he could easily come in as the top overall driver on the slate.

Chase Briscoe ($9,600)

Starting Position: 2nd

Briscoe has been a solid play at road courses with an average finish of 4.85 over his last 7 races including 2 wins (2018 Charlotte Roval, 2020 Indy RC). With Briscoe starting on the front row with Cindric and could out run him and lead a good portion of the early part of the race. I prefer Briscoe over Cindric for the savings since there are a plethora of drivers over $9K I want to roster this weekend.

Other Options: Justin Allgaier ($10,600) , Daniel Hemric ($10,200), Noah Gragson ($9,700)


Brandon Gdovic ($9,400)

Starting Position: 37th

Gdovic is another driver that you may not be familiar with, but he did run on the Indy road course earlier this season. In that race, Gdovic started 38th, but came home 12th and earned 58 DraftKing points. If we can get a similar outcome from Gdovic, he will more than make 5x value.

Jeremy Clements ($8,500)

Starting Position: 18th

Clements was having a great day last week at Road America until a late race wreck took him out. We get good upside again this week from Clements with him starting 18th. He has a good history on road course, Clements came into last week with four straight finishes of 13th or better.

Jade Buford ($7,500)

Starting Position: 32nd

Here is the third driver you might now recognize ( I told you in the discord there were a bunch). Buford has raced twice on road courses this season and finished inside the top 20 in both races (14th and 18th). In those two races Buford started much further up in the field, so he offers up more upside on Saturday then he has in the previous races.

Other Options: Alex Labbe ($8,300), Myatt Snider ($8,100), Justin Haley ($9,200)

NASCAR DFS: Value Tier Rankings

  1. Riley Herbst – $7,100 – P15
  2. Scott Heckert – $7,200 – P30
  3. Josh Bilicki – $6,900 – P18
  4. Stephen Leicht – $4,700 – P21
  5. Jesse Little – $5,300 – P24
  6. Jeffrey Earnhardt – $5,600 – P28
  7. Kyle Weatherman – $5,900 – P26

 Isaiah’s Protocol picks are built around DraftKings NBA DFS pricing but are good across the industry with some slight adjustments to salaries on the various sites. Let’s see what Isaiah’s Protocol picks have in store for you today.

This is a 4 game NBA DFS slate with a lot of injury news expected to come out throughout the day. LeBron James is doubtful, Kawhi, and Giannis are on B2B’s, with the latter dealing with a back injury. Sabonis has a hip injury, Hayward has a foot injury, Millsap has a knee injury, etc….A A TON of people will be distracted by NFL with the playoffs approaching, so it is crucial to stay on top of the injury reports tonight. The best part, with all these injuries, I can see clear paths to jamming a bunch of weapons in your lineups with a solid “stars and scrubs” approach.

The Core

Giannis Antetokounmpo ($11,000) It’s quite simple, If he plays, you need him in your lineup. He’s a triple-double machine with almost an unheard of 40% usage rate, scoring just about 2 FP/min. As if that’s not staggering enough, he gets a solid boost on those stats with Bledsoe on the shelf. I don’t care if he’s playing under 30 mins./gm, or only plays 20. If you want to win tonight, and he plays, he better be in your lineup.

Anthony Davis ($10,100) Don’t get too cute here. This is a 4 game NBA DFS slate. Lebron is doubtful. Although it’s a tough match up with the Nuggets being 8th in DvsA, and 7th in DEFF, AD is basically matchup proof and will be asked to shoulder the load tonight in Denver. Davis has a 30.4% usage rate, scores 1.40 FP/min, and plays an average of 35 mins. a game. Expect bumps to all those stats with James missing.

Paul George ($8500) I fully expect Kawhi to be rested tonight on the second half of a B2B after putting up a beast game last night vs. his former team. That also allowed George to have a relatively quiet night. PG is simply too cheap for the circumstances on this NBA DFS slate. He carries a 30% usage rate, 1.4 FP/min., and will be asked to carry his team against his old squad in OKC tonight. The Thunder are 21st in DvsA for PG, and I fully expect him to approach 50 FPS. tonight.


Rajon Rondo ($4300) Rondo should start, and play a full allotment of minutes as the primary ball-handler for this Laker team tonight without LeBron. Rondo has a 20.8% usage rate and scores 1.07 FP/min. I expect a huge bump to those stats as he will be AD’s primary field general in this one. The Nuggets are a strong defense but actually struggle against opposing guards. They are 22nd in DvsA and 21st in DEFF against Rondo’s position. Rajon is priced too cheap for the expected game script on this NBA DFS slate.

Enes Kanter ($4900) or Daniel Theis ($4200) This is really a flip of a coin for me. I’m trying to cram in superstars at the top, so I need value. Both these guys split time at the center for a Boston. It’s no secret in NBA DFS to pick on the big men in Charlotte. Make a stance here, and watch the show. I’m probably leaning toward Theis as the starter, but don’t hold me to that

Moe Harkless ($3600) With Kawhi being rested, and Jamychal Green most likely out with a back injury, Harkless is one of my favorite value plays on this NBA DFS slate. OKC is 22nd in DEFF.

I highly encourage all readers tojoin myself, and the rest of the WinDaily team in the Discord chat rooms as webreak down and discuss our favorite plays of the night. Thank you for readingmy content and feel free to leave a comment, or hit me up on Twitter@IsaiahsProtocol.

I’ll be focusing on my core and GPP plays for the 12/18 DFS NBA for each position along with my favorite value plays.   

WithNBA DFS, you need to stay locked in the final hour before lock until tipoff. Ifyou can’t be engaged during that hour, we recommend avoiding the NBA slate.Starting lineups and other news is vital to being successful in NBA DFS.

My Core and Value Plays for ALL Builds :

Sexy 6 – 12/18 DFS

  • Davis Bertans, SF/PF – 12/18 DFS
    • Hachimura is officially out for the next five games so this means the door has opened for Bertans. I think he will be extra chalky tonight, especially on FD so I don’t hate the play on DK since he’s priced up on that site.
  • Ian Mahinmi, C (FD Only) – 12/18 DFS
  • Tristan Thompson, C (DK Only) – 12/18 DFS
    • Center is my least favorite position tonight, especially on DK, but there is one that stands out and it is far from my favorite play. Thompson is not very trustworthy in DFS, but he faces Charlotte we love targeting the big man against Chicago or Charlotte. Mahinmi is priced too low on FD still and he faces Chicago.
  • Jeff Teague, PG – 12/18 DFS
    • Karl Anthony-Towns may be OUT and if he is, I’m locking in Teague AND Wiggins, but as of now, let’s think he’s playing tonight. Teague is on the second team and is thriving in this role. They face one of the worst defenses today in the Pelicans and they are on the second night of a back to back after going to OT last night. I’m locked in on Teague!
  • Bradley Beal, SG – 12/18 DFS
    • The Wizards are beat up and someone has to score against this terrible Chicago team. His usage has gone up and I expect him to go big on BOTH sites.
  • Jalen Brunson, PG – 12/18 DFS
    • I don’t like the price tag now, but he’s starting and crushing the opportunity. I think I may change him off of the Sexy Six tag by end of the day, but let’s keep him here for now.
  • Pascal Siakam, SF on FD / PF/C on DK
    • VanVleet is doubtful so bump up to Siakam. He’s another one I may remove the tag off of before lock.

I’ve officially started a DO NOT PLAY list and Blake Griffin is on that list. DO NOT PLAY him until further notice!

Sexy 6 is the basis for all my builds in both cash and GPP builds. I will most likely lock in a minimum of FOUR for every contest. Due to salary constraints, I doubt I can get all six, but I recommend at least four or five of the recommended players.

I’m making a guest appearance on the writing team this afternoon to give everyone a peek into how I start my day and build my FanDuel NBA DFS lineups. This is the kind of knowledge and info I present to our premium only members in our Discord Chat but I found some time in my hectic schedule today to give back to our loyal community.

Here is my early look into the Friday 12/6 FanDuel Slate. These are the guys I’m targeting in my early builds. I will present how I see the slate along with lineup construction. I can’t reference enough that this is a early build before all the injury news drops. This is the NBA we are dealing with and with a large slate like we have tonight there will be a bunch of news to drop. It’s 145pm eastern time as I’m writing this so please make sure you jump into our Discord Chat in order to stay up to date with late breaking news. Also check out our updated projected models here for both FanDuel NBA DFS and DraftKings.

Point Guards: Looks to be a pay down spot.

  • Corey Joseph
  • Kris Dunn
  • Coby White
  • Kendrick Nunn
  • Ish Smith (if Isaiah Thomas is out)
  • Any of the Spurs point guards for GPPs

Shooting Guards: Looking to go one expensive guard paired with a value play.

  • Jimmy Butler
  • Bradley Beal
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
  • Lonnie Walker
  • Dennis Schroeder

Small Forwards: If value opens up pick one high priced Small Forward. If not stick to the value and mid tier.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
  • Lebron James
  • Jonathan Isaac
  • Justise Winslow
  • Taurean Prince
  • Josh Okogie

Power Forwards: I would like to lock up the top two projected players.

  • Anthony Davis

I’ll be focusing on my core and GPP plays for the 12/4 DFS NBA for each position along with my favorite value plays.   

WithNBA DFS, you need to stay locked in the final hour before lock until tipoff. Ifyou can’t be engaged during that hour, we recommend avoiding the NBA slate.Starting lineups and other news is vital to being successful in NBA DFS.

MyCore and Value Plays by Position:

  • Core Plays – PG – 12/4 DFS
    • Trae Young, PG, ATL
    • Luka Doncic, PG, DAL
      • I think I’m starting all my builds around these two guys. Doncic is unstoppable right now and sat out the whole 4th quarter last night so he should be fresh. As for Trae, he could easily go for 50-60 tonight.
    • Emmanuel Mudiay, PG, UTA – No Mike Conley tonight. It might be the best value play of the night!
  • Core Plays – SG- 12/4 DFS
    • Core Play – Buddy Hield, SG, SAC
      • Hield is on fire lately and I think he could easily smash tonight in a high tempo matchup. My fear is it will either be him or Bogdanovic that will be the ones to crush and Bogdanovic is very low priced.
    • Value Play – Terrance Ross, SG, ORL
    • Other Value Play – Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG, SAC
      • Ross is too cheap on the second night on a back to back and should have done more yesterday. He’s getting the minutes and Augustin rose to the occasion. I think tonight is Ross’ night.
  • Core Plays – SF- 12/4 DFS
    • Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL
      • Giannis faces a terrible defense and high paced Pistons team. I lean toward Doncic and Trae tonight, but Giannis is the top play.
    • Value Play – Taurean Prince, SF, BKN
    • Other Value Play – Tim Hardaway Jr., SF, DAL
      • Prince and Hardaway are both starting and in killer matchups. I think I may fade Giannis and go these two with the matchup they have.
  • Core Plays – PF- 12/4 DFS
    • Aaron Gordon, PF, ORL
    • Frank Kaminsky, PF, PHX
    • Cheick Diallo, PF, PHX
      • Now we get to the tougher position of the night. I like Aaron Gordon because he’s priced low with some high usage, but if he puts up a dud, he will be on the do not play list until further notice. As for Kaminsky and Diallo, they will get a ton of minutes with Baynes already ruled out.
  • Core Plays – C- 12/4 DFS
    • Andre Drummond, C, DET
      • If Blake Griffin is OUT, I like this play more, but I fear a blowout versus the Bucks so I might just spend down.
    • Lock Value Play – Mo Bamba, C, ORL
      • Bamba is getting about 20 minutes a game and is priced pretty cheaply. I will try for Drummond, but if I pay up for Trae and Doncic, it may be tough
  • Sexy 6
    • Luka Doncic, PG, DAL
    • Trae Young, PG, ATL
    • Taurean Prince, SF, BKN
    • Aaron Gordon, PF, ORL
    • Frank Kaminsky or Cheick Diallo, PF, PHX
    • Andre Drummond, C, MIL (If not, Mo Bamba)
  • Do Not Play List
    • Kristaps Porzingis
    • Rudy Gay
    • Blake Griffin
