NBA DFS has a six-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.
Curry and the Warriors got absolutely dragged by the Dallas Mavericks earlier this week. Dallas closed the 1st quarter on a 25-0 run. Unfortunately for the Timberwolves, they’ll catch the Steph bounce back game.
Curry is averaging 46.5 DraftKings points over his last three games. I’m looking for him (and the whole team) to get right tonight. I’m expecting 55+ fantasy points from Curry tonight.
DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Nikola Jokic, C, DEN vs TOR O/U 222
Nikola is averaging 57.3 DK points over his last three games as he closes in on his first NBA MVP award. The Nuggets are two back of the Los Angeles Clippers in the win column so a beat down of the Raptors is exactly what they need.
Jokic has scored less than 50 fantasy points two times in his last 10 games. He’s going for 50 or 60 DK points tonight.
FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Steph Curry, PG, GS @ MIN O/U 234
Steph is 9.6K on FanDuel tonight, making him the seventh most expensive player on the slate. Granted, Giannis and Luka are questionable, and Harden is out, but still. We’re getting Steph at a discount on FanDuel.
Like I mentioned in the DK section, I’m expecting a huge bounce back game for Curry and the Warriors after getting destroyed by the Dallas Mavericks. The FD price makes Curry an even more attractive play tonight.
Dort had a breakout game about two weeks ago against Utah when he scored 64.9 FD points. He’s averaged 36.73 fantasy points in the four games he’s played since the explosion.
I’m looking for Dort to have a big game tonight, mostly due to injuries (OKC is battered) and opponent (The Pelicans rank 23rd in defense in the NBA). A 7x value performance would mean 43.4 FD points for Lu. I think that’s within his grasp tonight.
I’m rolling with the presumptive MVP tonight. He has the potential to drop a triple double, and can drop a solid score without dominating the ball. What I mean by that is he’s a willing passer and a glass cleaner. He can score 20 points and have double digit assists or rebounds while being the top performer on the slate. Sign me up.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
