5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 3/13

NBA DFS has a seven-game slate on DraftKings, FanDuel, and 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.

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

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF/C, MIL @ WAS O/U 239

Giannis comes into tonight’s action with a salary of 11k and it doesn’t scare me one bit. He’s averaging 52 DraftKings points over his last three games, and gets a matchup against the defenseless Wizards.

Antetokounmpo is the highest rated player in the Team Rise or Fall NBA DFS Study hub. I’m expecting him to live up to that rating with a classic Greek Freak performance.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – James Harden, PG, BKN vs DET O/U 228

If Giannis’ salary is too rich for your blood let me grab your attention with Harden and the $100 savings he provides. James is averaging an insane 68 DK points over his last three games, and he’s dropped an average of 56 DK points in his last three games against Detroit. 

Harden is one of the greatest scorers the NBA has ever seen but The Beard stuffs the stat sheet. He can drop 10+ assist while scoring 30+ points and grabbing a decent amount of rebounds.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – De’Aaron Fox, PG, SAC @ ATL O/U 238

A ball dominant point guard in a game with a high implied total. Stop me if you’ve seen me write about this before. It doesn’t hurt that Fox is in a great spot while rocking a sub-9k salary.

Fox is the fourth highest rated player in our NBA DFS Study hub for FanDuel. He’s averaging 51 FD points over his last three games. There’s potential here for a huge score in a game that Vegas expects to be a shootout.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Luka Doncic, PG, DAL @ DEN O/U 226.5

I recommended Luka as one of my early NBA DFS picks a couple of days ago and then he ended up resting. My bad. But let’s hop back on that wave today.

Luka is averaging 51 FD points in his last three games. He’s dropped an incredible average of 70 FD points in his last three games against Denver. The game is at altitude but Doncic should be good and rested and able to chase another triple double.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Khris Middleton, SG, MIL @ WAS O/U 239

Middleton is 8k on DraftKings and 7.5k on FanDuel so I do prefer him on FD. He’s averaging nearly 35 fantasy points over his last three games which isn’t that impressive. What I do like is that in his last three games against Washington he’s averaged over 50 fantasy points. My lineups will be sitting pretty if he gets close to that 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.
