5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 4/3

NBA DFS has an eight-game slate on DraftKings and FanDuel, and a seven-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 – Luka Doncic, PG/SF, DAL @ WAS O/U 227.5

DraftKings gave Luka a salary of 10.6K for tonight’s slate and he seems a little underpriced. His recent play has him averaging 48 DK points over his last three games. We’re going to need a better score than that to justify the price tag and I believe that happens tonight.

Doncic is averaging 51.4 DK points in his last three games against the Wizards. I’m looking for a triple double battle between Luka and Westbrook. The only difference is Russell costs $500 more than Doncic. Save that money and put it towards some other players.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Derrick Rose, PG/SG, NYK @ DET O/U 201.5

This is one of those first glance type of picks. Things can change throughout the day so make sure to stay glued to the news from Team Rise or Fall.

If Rose plays (And especially if he starts) he’s in a great spot to payoff tonight. He’s only averaging 20 DK points over his last three games, but his minutes (26.94) and last three games against Detroit (30 DK points) are great trends. Rose can easily hit value on his 4.7K salary IF he’s playing tonight. (He’s not currently on the injury reports.)

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Damian Lillard, PG, POR vs OKC O/U 227

“Uh oh, Eags is touting Damian Lillard two days in a row.” Yep, I’m going back to the well on Dame Time today. Lillard had a decent game yesterday (53 FD points), and I’m looking for him to carry that momentum forward to tonight’s matchup. 

Dame is now averaging 49 FD points over his last three games, and 48 FD points over his last three games against the Thunder. His last game against OKC saw Lillard drop 57 FD points. Another game like that is what I’m looking for tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Tyrese Haliburton, SG, SAC vs MIL O/U 239

Plenty of teams are kicking themselves for passing on Haliburton in the draft. The Kings rookie has played really well this season and even had a week where he was the talk of DFS.

Tyrese is averaging 26.5 FD points over his last three games. He put up 49 FD points in an earlier game against the Bucks. I’m not expecting a close to 50 point performance tonight but mid to high 30s is definitely in play.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF/C, MIL @ SAC O/U 239

I loved Giannis in his spot yesterday and I think we can hop back on him, even in a back to back. An early blowout could absolutely hamper his production, but I think the Kings keep it close long enough for Antetokounmpo to rack up ALL the stats.

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)

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.
