5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 4/15

NBA DFS has a four-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 – Jayson Tatum, PF, BOS @ LAL O/U 214

Tatum’s last three games have seen him drop 75.5, 47, and 55.25 DraftKings points. Tonight he’ll face a Lakers team missing LeBron and AD. The Lakers defense has been ok without the two stars but Tatum is going to light them up tonight.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Khris Middleton, SG/SF, MIL @ ATL O/U 230.5

This is a watch the news pick. If Giannis is playing tonight then I would downgrade Middleton. If Giannis doesn’t play then I do like Middleton a lot.

Khris scored 31, 42.5, and 49.5 DraftKings points in his last three games. The 31 point stinker is kind of a mystery because he shot the ball 27 times (making six shots) compared to a combined 28 attempts in the other two games.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Jayson Tatum, PF, BOS @ LAL O/U 214

Tatum has the same salary of 9.4K on FD and DK tonight. I like him on both sites although he does eat a slightly larger portion of your salary on DraftKings.

Tatum is playing well right now and I don’t see any reason for that to stop tonight. Unless a young guy like him decided to go out partying in Los Angeles last night. But that never happens so no worries there…

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Talen Horton-Tucker, SG, LAL vs BOS O/U 214

There are a few Lakers that are questionable for tonight (Schroeder, Kuzma, and Drummond). If Schroeder and Kuzma don’t play I see THT taking about 100 shots. Ok, maybe not 100 but he’s gonna be chucking. If Dennis and Kyle do play then I don’t like Horton-Tucker that much. Keep an eye on the news for this play.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Steph Curry, PG, GS @ CLE O/U 224

Curry is the best available player on the entire slate. There are only four games so I think you lock in Curry and then figure out the rest. 

If you’re into narratives, Curry was born in Akron, Ohio so maybe he’s juiced up a little to play in his birth state. Or maybe he’s just really good and capable of going off on any given night.

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.
