NBA DraftKings & FanDuel DFS Primer: Friday (1/27)

It’s bizarre to see five games on a Friday, but here we are! It’s hard to understand the reasoning for the short slate, but I always tend to do better when we have fewer games to break down. There’s still plenty to discuss and some fun matchups to discuss, so let’s get started with the schedule and odds before diving into the players we like!

Core Plays

Pascal Siakam (PF/C – TOR): $9,500 DraftKings, $9,600 FanDuel
Siakam needs to be discussed more in terms of superstardom. This guy has taken over this Toronto offense, averaging 25.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game. That’s led to an absurd floor, scoring at least 33 fantasy points in all but one game while scoring 39 or more DraftKings points in 32 of 38 games. That makes him tough to fade against Golden State, who rank 26th in points allowed.
