5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 3/20

NBA DFS has a four-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 vs SAS O/U 231

Giannis has been a fantasy monster all season long. His price is ok until he gets into the high 11k range, but 11.1k on DK is fine.

Antetokounmpo is averaging 68 DK points over his last three games, and 54 DK points in his last three games against the Spurs. There have been so many triple doubles in the league lately. I have a feeling Giannis picks up one tonight.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Tobias Harris, PF, PHI vs SAC O/U 230.5

Harris has been a solid third wheel to Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons this season. Now with Joel out due to injury he’s had to step up his role even more.

Tobias is averaging a solid 47 DK points over his last three games. He’s also put up 40 DK points in his last three games against the Kings. All of this adds up to what should be a great night for Harris.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – De’Aaron Fox, PG, SAC @ PHI O/U 230.5

We only have four games on the slate today but I would probably like Fox in this matchup regardless. I’m always big on guys that handle the ball a lot in games with a high implied total. Hello Mr. Fox!

De’Aaron is averaging 46 FD points over his last three games, and 41 FD points in his last three against Philly. That includes a 56 FD point performance in their last matchup. He’s priced at 9.2k which is a little high to me but again we only have four games.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Kawhi Leonard, SF, LAC vs CHA O/U 232

Kawhi has been kind of quiet of late, averaging 44, 42, and 44 FD points over his last seven, five, and three games. I’m looking for an eruption game tonight against the Hornets.

Kawhi has averaged 50 FD points over his last three games against Charlotte including a 60 point game in their last matchup. Hopefully Charlotte keeps the game competitive until the final buzzer. That gives Kawhi a full game of opportunity to capitalize on tonight.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF/C, MIL vs SAS O/U 231

This is only the eye test and not backed by any research but it seems Giannis is the “stud” player that shows up the most in winning lineups. I’ll be rostering him until he reaches a salary level that just doesn’t make sense for roster construction.

Giannis is 11.1k on DraftKings and 11.4k on FanDuel. He has the potential to hit 6x value on both sites and a 7x night isn’t out of the question.

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.
