5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 3/21

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 – James Harden, PG, BKN vs WAS O/U 247.5

Harden is the highest rated player in the Team Rise or Fall NBA DFS Study hub and rightfully so. He’s been a triple double machine since joining the Nets. It’s also helped that Kevin Durant has missed a lot of games due to injury.

The Beard is averaging 63.25 DraftKings points in his last three games, and 75 DK points in his last three games against the Wizards. He’s about as close to a must play as a guy can be.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Bradley Beal, SG, WAS @ BKN O/U 247.5

Las Vegas is projecting the Wiz-Nets matchup to be a crazy scoring game so who am I to argue with them? There should be plenty of fantasy goodness to go around in this game and I really like Beal in this spot.

Beal is averaging 50 DK points over his last three games, and 52 DK points in his last three games against the Nets. He grades out as the fourth highest rated player in our NBA DFS Study hub. His salary is $1,400 less than Russell Westbrook and $1,600 less than Harden if you’re looking for a stud with savings in a game with a high implied total.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Jarrett Allen, C, CLE vs TOR O/U 217.5

Allen is the highest rated player in our NBA DFS Study hub for FanDuel. I’ll be the first to admit that his recent play is subpar, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be like that forever. 

Allen is averaging 36 FD points over his last three games against the Raptors. His salary tonight is 6.3k so 36 fantasy points tonight puts Allen at 6x value. I definitely think he can hit that mark.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Luka Doncic, PG, DAL @ POR O/U 228.5

I could write “he’s Luka” and that would be enough of an explanation of why you should consider rostering him tonight. The guy is a baller and puts up ridiculous numbers on the regular.

But in the world of real analysis Luka is averaging 65 FD points over his last three games and 56 FD points over his last three games against Portland. His salary of 10.8k is $300 less than Russell Westbrook and $500 less than James Harden. Seems like a great move to get him in your lineups.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Bradley Beal, SG, WAS @ BKN O/U 247.5

Beal has a salary of 9.3k on DraftKings and 9.6k on FanDuel in a game with an implied total of 247.5. You really can’t go wrong by rostering Harden (10.9k DK/11.3k FD) or Russell Westbrook (10.7k DK/11.1k FD), but I like the savings that Beal gives me. He actually makes it possible to roster him and another big time player mixed in with the today’s value.

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

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.

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.
