5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 4/11

NBA DFS has an eight-game slate on DraftKings and FanDuel, and a six-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 – Karl-Anthony Towns, C, MIN vs. CHI O/U 231

KAT has kind of quietly been balling out after dealing with illness and family tragedy. His last three games have seen him drop an average of 56 DK points. He has a 50 DK point average in his last three games against the Bulls.

Chicago is a different team now and Towns will be matched up against Vucevic. I don’t think that changes his potential for tonight.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Dean Wade, PF, CLE vs NO O/U 226.5 

I have to admit it threw me off a little the first time I looked at a Cavaliers box score and saw “D. Wade” on the roster. I was like man, they are really desperate because he was finished last time I saw him play. Different guy. Oops.

Wade has put up decent numbers when he’s had the playing time. He’s averaging 25 DK points in his last three games. With a salary of 4.9K we need 29.4 DK points for 6x value. I think that’s in play tonight. 

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Luka Doncic, PG, DAL vs. SA O/U 220.5 

Luka’s salary is just 10.2K so that feels like a discount for a player with his potential. Doncic is averaging 47 FD points over his last three games, but 56 FD points over his last three games against San Antonio.

The NBA season is getting super weird with teams sitting players and looking towards the playoffs. The Mavs are currently the 7th seed in the West. I don’t know if they have the wiggle room to cut Luka’s minutes. I’m rostering him tonight and expecting a classic performance.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Dillon Brooks, SG, MEM vs IND O/U 230.5

I’m gonna take a hack today with Brooks as my difference maker. Keep an eye on news and ownership projections. If Brooks becomes popular for some reason then I would suggest pivoting.

The positives on Brooks are he’s averaged 31 FD points over his last three games, and 33 FD points over his last three games against Indiana. His salary is 5.5K tonight so we would need 38.5 FD points for 7x value. I don’t know if he gets there but scoring in the 30s is definitely live.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Karl-Anthony Towns, C, MIN vs. CHI O/U 231

Towns is 10.8K on DK and 11K on FD. He eats a greater percentage of your salary on DK so I do slightly prefer him on FanDuel. He’s been playing really well in recent gamelogs and I’m looking for that to continue tonight.

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.

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.
