5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 5/28

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 – Kristaps Porzingis, PF/C, DAL vs LAC O/U 219.5

Porzingis started this series priced at 8.1K, then he dropped to 7.8K, and now he’s 7.6K for Game 3. He scored 22.5 DraftKings points in the first game and followed that up with 36.5 DK points in the second game. 

Kristaps’ home and road splits show he averages 35.2 DK points on the road and 40.7 DK points at home. So he plays better at home and his salary is the lowest it’s been over his last 10 games. Seems like a good place to start a lineup.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Derrick Rose, PG/SG, NYK @ ATL O/U 211

If Tom Thibodeau is going to play D-Rose 150 minutes per game (Rough estimate) then Rose is a solid play at 6.4K. We would need Derrick to score 38.4 DK points to hit 6x value. He’s averaging 35.13 fantasy points through the first two games of the series so 38 fantasy points is definitely possible.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Trae Young, PG, ATL vs NYK O/U 211

Trae Young scored 53.4 FanDuel points in Game 1 and then followed that up with 36.7 in Game 2. I think he shows out tonight in front of the home fans while giving Atlanta a 2-1 lead in the series. 

Young is 9K tonight so 7x value is 63 fantasy points and 6x value is 54 fantasy points. I think both targets are in play tonight but I’m leaning towards a 6x-ish performance from Young.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Kevin Durant, SF, BKN @ BOS O/U 227

The Nets-Celtics series has sweep written all over it, and I think that means we’re at the breaking point for Boston. Jaylen Brown is still out but even if he played the Celtics are still outgunned and outclassed by Brooklyn.

Durant has scored 49.9 and 54.1 FD points in the first two games of this series. I think he goes ballistic tonight because he smells the blood in the water.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Kawhi Leonard, SF, LAC @ DAL O/U 219.5

I don’t know what’s going on with the Clippers. On paper Los Angeles is a better team than Dallas. But paper can’t account for Luka’s talent and the weird thing that happens to the Clippers in the playoffs.

I have no idea who will win tonight’s game. I do believe that Kawhi will have a huge game either way. The only thing that would change my opinion is if we learn that Kawhi is going to guard Doncic for the majority of the game. There’s no way he can use that much defensive energy and still have a lot left to produce on the offensive end of the court.

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.
