5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 5/27

NBA DFS has a three-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 – Jimmy Butler, SF, MIA vs MIL O/U 224.5

Jimmy hasn’t been great through the first two games of the series. He did score 47 DraftKings points in Game 1 but that was an overtime game. I’m expecting him to play much better at home, win or lose. I’m not really a narrative guy but going down 0-3 means the series is over. In my opinion Butler will do everything possible to prevent that from happening while having a 50+ DK point night.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Dennis Schroder, PG, LAL vs PHX O/U 211.5

Schroder has a 5.8K salary tonight so he would need 34.8 DK points for him to hit 6x value. That seems like a great possibility, especially considering the health of Chris Paul. If Schroder is going to see a good amount of minutes against a backup player then he should be able to capitalize on that tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Cameron Payne, PG, PHX vs LAL O/U 211.5

Watch out for any Chris Paul news before locking Payne in tonight. If Paul has made a miraculous recovery and they’re expecting him to play normal minutes then I’m not that big on Payne. If Paul is expected to play like he did in Game 2 then I’m a big fan of Payne. Cam has a salary of 5.3K tonight so 37.1 FanDuel points would be 7x value. I think he can get in that neighborhood with decent playing time tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Nikola Jokic, C, DEN vs POR O/U 226.5

What’s there to say about the probable NBA MVP? He’s a baller playing in an important Game 3. He brings it damn near every night and there’s no reason to expect anything less from him tonight. He’s scored 50+ FD points in five out of his last six games. I feel safe saying he’ll go for 50+ tonight.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Damian Lillard, PG, POR vs DEN O/U 226.5

Lillard has been absolutely carrying the Trailblazers, win or lose. Dame is 14-28 on three pointers through the first two games. I’m expecting him to shoot and play even better at home. Now, if you’ve read my NBA DFS Picks columns throughout the season then you already knew I was going to be big on Lillard. Nothing is changing there.

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.
