5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 4/25

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 – Clint Capela, C, ATL vs MIL O/U 226.5

Capela is balling out right now so let’s ride the hot hand. He’s averaging 56.9 DraftKings points over his last three games. The Milwaukee Bucks don’t offer much resistance at the center position, instead opting for a team defense approach to stopping big guys. I’m looking for Capela to snatch up a lot of boards while having a decent scoring night.

Capela does have the Q tag today so watch out for any news related to him before building your lineups.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Tyrese Haliburton, PG/SG, SAC @ GS O/U 231

Haliburton is starting tonight so let’s hop on that train. His salary is 6.2K tonight so we need 37.2 DK points from him for 6x value.

Tyrese scored 31.75 DK points in 29 minutes in his last game. The game before that he scored 24.25 DK points in 26 minutes on 2-10 shooting. I see around 35 fantasy points for him tonight if he’s hitting his shots.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Russell Westbrook, PG, WAS vs CLE O/U 225.5

Rinse and repeat should be underneath Westbrook’s name on all DFS provider lineup pages. He’s going crazy and the 11.1K salary isn’t high enough to push me away from him. Especailly on a four-game slate.

Westbrook is averaging 56 FanDuel points over his last three games, and he’s lit up the Cavaliers for an average of 60.25 FD points in their last three meetings. Rinse and repeat. Rinse and Repeat.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – T.J. McConnell, PG, IND @ ORL O/U 224

We’re currently projecting McConnell for 23 minutes in the Team Rise or Fall NBA DFS Study Hub for FanDuel. I’d love to see that number get over 25, but I like T.J. tonight either way.

McConnell is averaging 32 FD points over his last three games. That includes a 46 point performance in his last game. With a 5.3K salary tonight we would need 37.1 FD points for 7x value. I believe that’s in reach tonight.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Stephen Curry, PG, GS vs SAC O/U 231

Curry’s tear has cooled down a little but I know the remedy for that: The Sacramento Kings.

Curry is averaging “just” 49 DK points over his last three games. That number grows to 52 DK points over his last five games. He’s also dropped an average of 57.8 DK points on Sacramento over their last three meetings. 

Curry will run you 10.5K on DraftKings and 9.8K on FanDuel. I like him slightly more for FanDuel although I’ll be using him on both sites.

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.
