5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 2/26

NBA DFS has a nine game slate on DraftKings, FanDuel, and a seven game slate on SuperDraft. These are the early morning Top 5 NBA DFS Picks for DraftKings and Fanduel. Be sure to dive into the NBA DFS Rankings, Cash Picks, and Player Pool or the GPP Picks and Player Pool afterward. And of course, the Rise or Fall NBA DFS Projections, ownerships, player ratings, and data are a good place to start for daily fantasy sports.

Before we get to the meal enjoy this appetizer of  a Team Rise or Fall member taking down $100,000 on DraftKings. This was done by using Team Rise or Fall tools such as Slate Breakers and Building Blocks.

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

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – De’Aaron Fox, PG, SAC @ DET O/U 227.5

Fox is the highest rated player in the Team Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub for DraftKings with a 111.83 rating. De’Aaron’s price is very attractive at 7.7k and I’m looking for him to exceed his 44.67 projection.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, PG/SG, OKC vs ATL O/U 227.5

Shai and the Thunder take on the Atlanta Hawks in a game with a 227.5 implied total, and we’re projecting him for 46 DK points. He’s the second highest rated player in our NBA Study Hub for DraftKings. He’ll have the ball a lot so that’s plenty of scoring opportunities. One of my favorite plays at this point in the day.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, PG/SG, OKC vs ATL O/U 227.5

SGA is to FanDuel what I feel De’Aaron Fox is to DraftKings today. His price is a sexy 8k, and he’s the highest rated player in our NBA Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s averaging 48.6 FD points over his last three games, and he dropped 45 FD points on the Hawks the last time they matched up.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Stephen Curry, PG, GSW vs CHA O/U 232.5

I don’t know what else there is to say about Curry at this point. He’s a stud. He’s one of the greatest NBA players of all-time. He’s liable to go off on any given night. On top of that he’s averaging 52 FD points over his last three games. I think Charlotte keeps this game close long enough for Steph to get enough minutes to drop a big score.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Paul George, SG, LAC @ MEM O/U 224.5

George is the 7th highest rated player for DraftKings and 5th highest rated player for FanDuel in the Team Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub. His salary is 8.6k on both sites so I like him a little better for FanDuel but he’s playable everywhere. He’s averaged 44 DK and 42 FD points over his last three games. The Clippers are coming off of a terrible loss to Memphis so I’m expecting them to return the favor to the Grizzlies tonight.

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.
