5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 3/14

NBA DFS has a six-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 – Kyle Lowry, PG, TOR @ CHI O/U 230.5

The Team Rise or Fall NBA DFS Study hub for DraftKings fantasy points trends tab shows Lowry averaging 44 DraftKings points over his last three games. He’s been playing some good basketball lately although the Raptors have lost four games in a row.

Lowry is the third highest rated player on the DraftKings slate in our Study Hub. I’m looking for him to continue his hot play against the struggling Bulls.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Trae Young, PG, ATL vs CLE O/U 223.5

Young has dropped an average of 51 DK points over his last three games. He loves playing against Cleveland as he’s averaged 49 DK points over his last three games against the Cavs. That includes a 56 DK point performance in his last game against Cleveland.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Karl-Anthony Towns, C, MIN vs POR O/U 234

The Timberwolves and Trailblazers are doing one of those two games in a row series. The first game saw Towns drop 59 FD points on Portland in a matchup of two of the longest team names in the NBA.

Towns is the second highest rated player in our NBA DFS Study hub for FanDuel. He’s averaged 41 FD points over his last three games but I’m not letting that affect my KAT ownership tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Clint Capela, C, ATL vs CLE O/U 223.5

What I like most about Capela today is his 8.3k salary. He can put up a score similar to top tier centers while giving us a major discount at the position. 

Clint has averaged 41 FD points in his last three games, and he’s averaged 41 FD points in his last three games against Cleveland. If he does that tonight it equates to about 5x his value. Well, I’m not looking for just 5x and I believe Capela will exceed that mark.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Damian Lillard, PG, POR @ MIN O/U 234

Dame Dolla is the highest rated player for DraftKings and FanDuel in the Team Rise or Fall NBA DFS Study hub. His salary is 10.3k on DK and 9.9k on FD so I prefer him on FanDuel, but Lillard is a good play anywhere, anytime.

He’s averaging over 50 fantasy points on both sites over his last three games, and his ceiling is well over 60 fantasy points. It’s time to get some Dame in your life and lineups.

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.
