Top 5 NBA DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Joel Embiid, C, PHI vs DAL O/U 228

Embiid is averaging 61.7 DraftKings points over his last three games according to the Team Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub fantasy trends tab. 
He’s playing like an MVP and can be rostered on almost every slate. He’s dropped an average of 58 DK points on Dallas in their last three meetings.

[DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Nikola Jokic, C, DEN vs WAS O/U 237.5

Can I interest anyone in double centers tonight on DraftKings? Jokic is the highest rated player in the Team Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub and we’re projecting him for 61.53 DK points. Joker is averaging 53 fantasy points over his last three games, and gets a nice tempo tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Zion Williamson, PF, NO @ MIL O/U 242.5

Zion is the highest rated player in the Team Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub for FanDuel at 124.24. He’s averaging 41.9 FanDuel points over his last three games, and we’re projecting him for 41 fantasy points. Seems like you can count on him for at least 40 tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Julius Randle, PF, NYK vs SAC O/U 224.5

Randle has been playing out of his mind this season. Julius is averaging 41 FD points over his last three games and he dropped 48 on the Kings the last time he face them. He’s also the 7th highest rated player in our NBA Study Hub for FanDuel so he’s in big dog territory.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Nikola Vucevic, C, ORL @ BKN O/U 228.5

There are a lot of options at the center position tonight. Vuc comes in at a lower cost than Jokic on both DK and FD, and he’s cheaper than Embiid on FanDuel.

Vucevic is averaging 60.25 DK and 58.6 FD over his last three games. He’s a really solid play against a team that doesn’t offer much resistance against the center position.

NBA DFS Core Builds (Building Blocks)

The NBA DFS Core Builds are also referred to as our NBA DFS Building Blocks. Each staff member identifies the core players they would build their cash or GPP lineup around for both DraftKings and FanDuel. These NBA DFS Picks are basically the Building Blocks of their NBA DFS Lineups.

NBA DFS GPP Pivots (Slate Breakers)

The NBA DFS GPP Pivots is for those chasing glory in DFS tournaments on both DraftKings and FanDuel. The goal here for our staff is to identify a GPP pivot, often a price point pivot away from a chalky player, that could potentially break the slate and win you a tournament. Have you ever seen the guy that is lower-owned and went nuclear in tournaments and you think to yourself, “I should have pivoted to him?”. Our goal is to identify those GPP Pivots.

NBA DFS Picks Rankings

The NBA DFS Picks Rankings will be a staple to your daily fantasy basketball research. This list of players is compiled by a staff member while they are making a player pool for DraftKings and FanDuel. These players then get ranked in the form of Tiered Rankings, which you often see in Fantasy Basketball or Fantasy Football. These Tiered Rankings will help you identify the value in both NBA DFS Cash Games and NBA DFS GPP’s as it shows you who they value more at each position than other players.

NBA DFS Picks and Pools (Cash Games)

The NBA DFS Picks and Pools for Cash Games is clutch for anybody who wants to play those on either FanDuel or DraftKings. These are identified in the Tiered Rankings and player notes. This small list of players gives you a road map to putting together an NBA DFS Lineup each and every night.

NBA DFS Picks and Pools (GPP Priority Picks)

The NBA DFS Picks and Pools for GPP’s is crucial for Single Entry players. This list of priority picks are players with slate winning upside each night. They aren’t just the top projected players, they are picks that take into consideration the Rise or Fall ownership projection, tournament leverage, and daily fantasy basketball roster construction.

NBA DFS Strategy and Player Notes

In the NBA DFS Picks Rankings, there is a section for strategy and player notes. These are written up in the form of analysis for the player and best use of the player for DFS. In addition to the notes, being a part of the Rise or Fall Discord Chat is a fantastic way to discuss Draftkings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft with both members and staff. Everyone is in there picking each other’s brains all day long and enjoying DFS together.
