NBA DFS has 11 games 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.
As we enter the home stretch of the NBA season most teams are down to 12 games or less left for the season so the time to make the playoff push is now. For a team like the Knicks who can get potential homecourt advantage through a round or two, finishing the season strong is a must.
The team has relied heavily on Randle who is playing north of 39 minutes a night in April. This month alone he averaging 27.3 points, 9.4 boards, 6.8 assists, and a combined 1.4 steals/blocks. The Knicks are only three games out of the third seed so look for them to push the last few weeks of the season.
With injuries to Jamal Murray (ACL) and Monte Morris (hamstring), Facundo Campazzo is playing big minutes. Over the Nuggets’ last four games he’s played 31.5 minutes. I wouldn’t categorize him as a lock, but at his price points and the opportunity he has, he’s definitely in play for tournaments. He fills the stat sheet in all areas – scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals.
With Kawhi Leonard expected to be out again tonight, we know Paul George will be the focus of the Clippers’ offense. In 9 games without Kawhi this season George sees an elite 38.4% usage rate. In those games without Leonard, George is averaging 34.5 minutes, 28.9 points, 7.8 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and a combined 1.4 steals/blocks.
As of today, the Clippers are only two games away from the #1 seed in the Western conference so look for them to finish strong in their remaining games.
We are looking at another low-cost point guard here in Shake Milton. Ben Simmons has already been ruled out for tonight’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Milton has started eight games in Simmons absence this season. Tobias Harris (knee) and Joel Embiid (shoulder) are questionable for tonight’s games, however, I don’t expect both to miss. Should Embiid sit I like Milton even more, to help in picking up the scoring slack without MVP candidate Embiid.
I’m going back to a DFS favorite in Russell Westbrook. The Wizards are fighting their way into the play into the play-in tournament, currently, they sit at the #10 seed. They’ll have to keep winning games if they want a chance at the post-season. We know that if the Wizards are going to get there it’ll be because Westbrook and Bradley Beal shouldered the load and won games for them. On the other side of the court, the Spurs are the 9th seed in the Western conference so it should be a fun game to watch as both teams need to win to keep playoff aspirations alive.
