5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 5/10

NBA DFS has six 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.

Top 5 NBA DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Russell Westbrook, PG, WAS @ ATL, O/U 236.5

I’ll apologize in advance as I feel I’m beating a dead horse, but if you’re not playing Russell Westbrook please post some H2Hs and I’ll gladly scoop them up. He’s on the verge of breaking Oscar Robertson’s 50-year old triple-doubles record. The Wizards are fighting for seeding in the play-in tournament. Just lock him in and move on.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – T.J. McConnell, PG, IND @ CLE, O/U 229.5

This play is totally dependent on the status of Malcolm Brogdon. Brogdon has missed the Pacers’ last 5 games due to a hamstring injury and while most are going to jump on the Caris LeVert bandwagon tonight, I want to zig when others zag. I like McConnell to garner lower ownership than LeVert (obviously), and still give you some upside in the minutes that he plays.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Damian Lillard, PG, POR vs HOU, O/U 238

Dame will look to keep the Blazers out of the play-in tournament. Portland currently leads the Lakers by one game putting them in the playoffs as the 6th seed. In what should be an “easy” game the Trail Blazers led by Dame will face a bad Houston Rockets team that is just injury-riddled to end this season. Lillard has scored 30+ real points in 5 of his last 6 games. I expect him to eclipse that mark tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Rudy Gobert, C, UTA @ GSW, O/U 225.5

Rudy Gobert will face off against the Warriors who lack a true center since James Wiseman was lost due to a knee injury. The Stifle Tower will most likely be guarded by Draymond Green in which Gobert has a substantial height advantage. In his last game against the Warriors back in March, Gobert went nuts scoring an insane 77.1 FanDuel points. I’m really liking Gobert to 5x his $7,900 salary tonight.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Stephen Curry, PG, GSW vs UTA, O/U 225.5

Yes, I may be a homer, but Curry is doing insane things right now. Since March 18, 2021, Curry has scored less than 30 real points only once. That’s a span of 21 games. The Warriors are currently the 8th seed in the Western Conference only half a game in front of Memphis. If the season ended today the Warriors would face the Lakers in the play-in game – yikes! Curry also has a personal accolade to shoot for – the scoring title.

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.
