5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 5/30

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 – Cameron Payne, PG, PHX @ LAL O/U 209

If Chris Paul is going to continue to be hampered by injury then we have to stay on the Payne Train. The Suns-Lakers series had two days off so there’s a chance that Chris Paul is doing much better health-wise. 

This play suggestion has the same qualifiers as when I recommended Payne for Game 3. Keep an eye on the CP3 news. If there’s improvement in his condition then Payne isn’t that great of a play. If things are the same (or worse) then fire up the other “CP.”

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – LeBron James, PG/SF, LAL vs PHX 209

The Lakers and Suns had two days off, and Anthony Davis is a little banged up. That has the makings of a big LeBron game. 

James scored 60+ DraftKings points in the play-in game against Golden State. He hasn’t cracked 50 fantasy points in any of the games against Phoenix. His salary is 9.7K today which stands out because it’s the lowest he’s been priced on DK in three weeks. 

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Joe Harris, SF, BKN @ BOS O/U 229

Joe Harris scored 12 FanDuel points in games 1 & 3 of this series. He dropped a 42 fantasy point bomb in Game 2. I don’t think he scores that high today but I do believe he’ll have a much better game. 

Boston was able to get rolling in Game 3 behind 50 points from Jayson Tatum. It was a huge win but most likely just a speed bump in what will be a Nets series win. I see things getting back on track today and Harris being a part of that on the offensive end.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Kevin Durant, SF, BKN @ BOS O/U 229

Durant gets his win or lose. We all know that when we talk about Brooklyn’s “Big Three”, Durant is the biggest of the three. He might not be the flashiest, but he’s the best scorer and best defensive player out of him, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden. 

I’m looking for Brooklyn to take a 3-1 series lead today. Durant will lead the way as the Nets take control of the series.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Jayson Tatum, PF, BOS vs BKN O/U 229

I know this looks like a chase pick but I promise I’m not chasing here. Tatum is option one and option two for Boston. If it was legal to pass the ball to yourself then I’m sure Brad Stevens would have Jayson do that. 

I don’t see another 50-point performance but he has to do the majority of the scoring and playmaking so he should do decently, even if the Cs get their doors blown off.

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.
