5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 3/28

NBA DFS has a three-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 – Nikola Jokic, C, DEN vs ATL O/U 223

The Nuggets big man has a price tag of 10.4k tonight on DraftKings. He’ll be worth every penny. Since we’re dealing with a small slate it’s important to go heavy on top-tier players while getting unique with the role players.

Jokic is averaging 59 DK points over his last three games, and 53 DK points in his last three games against the Hawks. I’m looking for Denver to get the win while Jokic leads the way with a near triple double.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Pascal Siakam, PF/C, TOR vs POR O/U 229.5

I like Siakam on both sites tonight. I’d feel a lot more confident about this pick if he was playing like last year’s Pascal and not this watered down, sometimey version of Pascal we’ve gotten for most of this season.

Pascal is averaging 49 DK points over his last three games, and he scored 58 DK points in his last game against Portland. Hopefully he can turn back time to last season and have a great performance tonight. I’m predicting that he will.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Pascal Siakam, PF, TOR vs POR O/U 229.5

The Toronto/Tampa Bay Raptors are having a rough season. They were in talks to trade longtime Raptor Kyle Lowry. Nothing is going as they planned. Pascal Siakam is having an up and down season that fits right in with Toronto’s overall play this season. 

WITH THAT SAID, it’s a three-game slate and I think we can rely on Pascal tonight. He’s averaged 48 FanDuel points over his last three games, and 42 FD points in his last three games against Portland. His last game against Portland saw Pascal put up 52 fantasy points. I think he’ll be in that neighborhood tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Trae Young, PG, ATL @ DEN O/U 223

It’s a three-game slate tonight so there’s no real surprises or tricks to the slate. Stuff your lineups full of the top guys and squeeze in a guy or two that you feel is flying under the radar. DFS is so easy.

Trae Young is definitely a top player with an average of 45 FD points over his last three games. Those are OK numbers for a “stud” but here’s where it gets good: Young is averaging 56 FD points over his last three games against the Nuggets. This includes a 65 fantasy point performance in his last matchup against Denver. I’m looking for Trae to light up the Nuggets, even if Denver walks away with the win.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG/SF, ATL @ DEN O/U 223

The Team Rise or Fall NBA DFS Study hubs for DraftKings and FanDuel are projecting Bogdan for close to 26 minutes of action tonight. I think that will be enough time for him to get busy on both sites.

He’ll cost you 4.9k on DraftKings and 4.2k on FanDuel while averaging 25 fantasy points over his last three games. That makes him a really solid play and it also means he’ll carry a lot of ownership tonight. That’s ok. He should be popular with his recent play and great pricing.

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.
