5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 5/15

NBA DFS has a five-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 – Anthony Davis, PF/C, LAL @ IND O/U 226.5

AD has the “Q” tag today so keep your eyes out for the latest news. The Lakers play tomorrow as well and COULD need the game so that MIGHT affect Davis’ playing time. Outside of those qualifiers I think Davis is a great play. He’s been playing really well lately and the Team Rise or Fall NBA DFS Study Hub for DraftKings projects him for 45 DK points today.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Nikola Vucevic, C, CHI @ BKN O/U 235

The Bulls and Nets hook up for a game with the highest implied total on the slate. Chicago has two major scoring threats, Zach Lavine and Vucevic. Our NBA DFS Study Hub for DraftKings projects Vuc for 45 DK points. I can see him reaching that number and then some.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Karl-Anthony Towns, C, MIN vs BOS O/U 230.5

I like Towns tonight because the Timberwolves don’t really have anything to play for so they might as well let their star player cook. KAT is averaging 46 FanDuel points over his last three games, and in his last three games against Boston. We’re projecting him for near 50 FD points tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Julius Randle, PF, NYK vs CHA O/U 213

Randle is averaging 43 FD points over his last three games. I’m guessing he gets a good run in today, and then plays less tomorrow, if at all. Thibs is the coach so you never know, maybe he’ll play Randle 48 minutes two days in a row. We’re projecting Julius for 48 FD points today.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Jayson Tatum, PF, BOS @ MIN O/U 230.5

Tatum ranks as the top projected player for DraftKings and FanDuel in our NBA DFS Study Hubs. We’re projecting him for over 50 fantasy points on both sites. If Boston is going to win the game (Or keep it close) Tatum will have to play really well.

**NOTE** The end of the NBA season is an absolute mess this season. Teams are tanking for playoff positioning or draft positioning. Try to keep up with the news up until lock to make sure you’re using the right players.

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.
