5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 3/25

NBA DFS has a five-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 – Julius Randle, PF/C, NYK vs WAS O/U 224.5

Julius Randle has made the leap from decent player to a really good player, and he still has room to grow his game. It’s been awesome to watch.

Randle is averaging 50 or more DraftKings points in his last 10 games. That holds true for his last seven, five, and three games as well. He put up 49.5 DK points in his last game against the Wizards. I’m looking for him to get over the 50 point mark tonight.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Ben Simmons, PG/SF, PHI @ LAL O/U 215.5

The Sixers and Simmons are on game three of a six-game road trip. They knocked of the Knicks and Golden State Warriors in their first two games and now get a matchup with a depleted Lakers team.

Simmons is averaging just 39 DK points over his last three games, but in his last game against the LAL he dropped 53.75 fantasy points. Ben and Tobias Harris have carried Philly in Embiid’s absence. I’m expecting both to go off tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Russell Westbrook, PG, WAS @ NYK O/U 224.5

Westbrook enters tonight’s action with a 11.1k price tag on FanDuel and I think he’ll be worth fitting into your rosters. The Knicks smashed the Wizards on Tuesday by a score of 131-113. Russ put up a 14-12-4 stat line, which is kind of bad for him. 

I’m expecting Westbrook to get back to his triple double shenanigans in tonight’s game. He’s averaged 59 FD points over his last three games, and I can see him getting in that neighborhood tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – James Wiseman, C, GSW @ SAC O/U 226.5

It seems that Wiseman slips in and out of Steve Kerr’s doghouse. Right now is one of the “Out” times. James is averaging 20 FD points over his last three games, and 21 FD points in his last three outings against the Kings.

Sacramento can play big and I think that means a few more minutes added to Wiseman’s 24 mpg average. He’s also packing a 68.5% “Rise” score in the Team Rise or Fall NBA DFS Study hub for FanDuel. That means he has an excellent chance of hitting value.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Ivica Zubac, C, LAC @ SAS, O/U 223.5

Zubac is a solid play on both sites tonight. He’ll cost you 5.6k on both DK and FD so he’s easy to slide into your lineups. He’s averaging about 28 fantasy points over his last three games on both sites. I’d love to see him get into the mid 30s tonight and I believe he will.

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.
