How do you start building a GPP lineup? With The Core 5! Get the best plays to build around on tonight’s DraftKings & FanDuel NBA DFS slates!
LaMarcus Aldridge – The matchup isn’t perfect, but no Demar DeRozan in the lineup means increased usage in all facets for LMA. Not one of my favorite players by any means, but at this price point with this opportunity, we are taking the plunge.
Dejounte Murray – Crazy season. Tough being an up and coming point guard coming off injury on a veteran team. But he’s coming off of two monster games and now gets to play solo sans the lead guard (DeRozan). Murray has massive volatility at $5200 but today, embrace that volatility.
Robert Covington – He’s going to be up and down in his production. Sometimes his 3s go down, sometimes not. We can look at the matchups and try to predict that but it’s tough. Regardless, his upside is huge. If he’s draining 3s he literally will nearly come off the court. Buy him when he’s cheap, regardless of matchup. That’s tonight.
Zion – We’re still waiting. Zion has been great through a few games but the ceiling game is still there. People have given up on him. Trust me this man is going to put up MANY monster games in the nest couple years. No reason today couldn’t be the first.
Jayson Tatum – I was probably wrong on this fella. Dude is beasting out and I’m not sure it’s going to stop regardless of who he plays with. He’s likely just that good. Get in.
