Top NBA DraftKings and FanDuel Plays For Thursday Jan 7th

We are only a few weeks into the NBA season and Nikola Jokic is easily the most valuable DFS player this year. Jokic is averaging a triple double with (24.1/11.9/11.9) and 59DK/57.4FD points on the year.

The next closest is Russell Westbrook with more than 10% less productivity at 53.1DK/51.1FD. With Andre Drummond priced down to $8400 traveling to Memphis its still not possible to call Jokic a lock, but a guy that consistently gets you value that can pop and put up 70 every other game this year deserves the recognition as the top DFS player in the league right now.

Let’s take a look at tonight’s available slates for lineup optimization for DraftKings and FanDuel.
