5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 5/29

NBA DFS has a four-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 – Ben Simmons, PG, PHI @ WAS O/U 228.5

Ben Simmons is one of eight players on the slate that’s projected for 40 DraftKings points while averaging 40+ DK points in his last three games. He’s the cheapest player on that list at 7.6K. I like Ben in this spot, partially because of Ben himself and partially because the Wizards don’t play defense.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Bradley Beal, SG/SF, WAS vs PHI O/U 228.5

In the Ben Simmons write-up I mentioned he’s one of eight players projected for 40+ DK points that’s averaged 40+ DK points in his last three games. Bradley Beal is on that list as well although he’s significantly more expensive than Simmons at 9K. I like Beal to play well today in the Washington’s first home playoff game since 2018.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Ja Morant, PG, MEM vs UTA O/U 223.5

Including the play-in game against the Warriors, Ja Morant is averaging 51.8 FanDuel points in his last three games. I’d expect him to play better at home which is scary.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Nikola Jokic, C, DEN @ POR O/U 227

The Joker. That’s it. That’s the write-up.

Ok I’ll add a little more. Jusuf Nurkic is the only member of the Trailblazers that can remotely guard Jokic. The second Nurkic leaves the floor an NBA game becomes pick-up at the park for Jokic. The Nuggets didn’t even play that well in Game 3 and Nikola still put up 54 FD points.

Jokic has scored 53.7, 54.1, and 54.7 in the first three games of the series. Is it safe to say he scores at least 53 FD points tonight?

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Jimmy Butler, SF, MIA vs MIL O/U 222

Jimmy Butler stands at the top of the ratings in our NBA DFS Study Hubs for DraftKings and FanDuel. It’s a do or die game for the Heat and I DON’T THINK Jimmy is gonna let them “1-2-3 Cancun” away the season. 

I know the Bucks defense has had Jimmy in its grips. It’s just that with everything on the line today I think we get a solid performance out of Butler. That doesn’t mean the Heat will win, but I do think JB has his best game of the series either way.

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.
