NBA DFS has a nine-game slate on DraftKings and FanDuel, and a seven-game slate on 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 @ IND O/U 227

Jokic has played at an MVP level throughout the first half of the NBA season. He deserves our consideration nearly every slate.

Nikola is averaging 70.9 DK points over his last three games according to the Team Rise or Fall NBA DFS Projections Study Hub for DraftKings. He dropped 56 DK points his last time out against Indiana. I’m looking for a similar performance unless he gets some pre-All-Star game rest.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Kawhi Leonard, SF, LAC @ WAS O/U 236

It’s early so keep your eyes and ears open for any news regarding Leonard and his back.

With that out of the way it’s good to note that The Claw is averaging 43.9 DK points over his last three games, and 52.1 DK points in his last three games against Washington.

If he plays, he slays.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Damian Lillard, PG, POR vs SAC O/U 236.5

Lillard is the highest rated player in our NBA DFS Projections Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s averaging 45 FD points over his last three games, and tonight he draws a favorable matchup against the Sacramento Kings.

Dame Dolla (No “r” Richard Jefferson) abused the Kings for 69 FD points in their last matchup. I’m expecting him to head into the all-star break on a high note.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – De’Aaron Fox, PG, SAC @ POR O/U 236.5

Fox is the second highest rated player in our NBA DFS Projections Study Hub for FanDuel. He’s averaging 43 FD points over his last three games, and he put up 46 FD points in his last game against the Blazers.

I’m expecting an up and down game with minimal defense as these teams are thinking about their vacation time. Vegas kind of agrees with me via the 236.5 implied game total.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Kyle Lowry, PG, TOR @ BOS O/U 220

Lowry is the top rated player on DK and the third highest rated player on FD in our NBA DFS Projections Study Hub. 

Kyle and the Raptors have been playing much better lately and I’m looking for that to continue against the up and down Celtics.

Lowry is averaging 49 DK and 46 FD points over his last three games. It’s gonna be a good night if he puts up numbers close to those tonight.

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.

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.
