5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 5/4

NBA DFS has seven games 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 – Kevin Durant, PF, BKN @ MIL, O/U 241.5

This should be a rematch of the track meet that happened this past Sunday. Durant and Giannis went back and forth in an incredible showcase that put both of their scoring abilities on display. The Nets hold a 2.5 game lead in the standing over the Bucks for the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference and trail the 76ers by 1 game for the top seed. Durant has seen an increase in his minutes as the Nets prepare him for the playoffs. I imagine he should garner some ownership because of the smaller slate size and recent performance against the Bucks.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Saddiq Bey, SF, DET vs CHA, O/U 216

The rookie has played well for the Pistons and will be given as many minutes as he can handle to close out the season. He’s taken double-digit shots in his last three games while playing nearly 35 minutes a game in that span. In tonight’s game against the Hornets Bey will look to repeat his performance from the first of this month in which he put up 48.8 DraftKings points by scoring 22 points, grabbing 7 rebounds, and dishing out 5 assists.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Stephen Curry, PG, GSW @ NOP, O/U 235

I’m going right back to the well with MVP candidate Steph Curry. He put up 56.8 FanDuel points against these Pelicans last night and I don’t expect much to change again tonight. If you watch closely, you’ll notice that the better game Draymond Green has the more likely Curry is going to go succeed. When Draymond struggles, Curry Struggles. The Warriors will need to finish out the season with some wins if they want to avoid the play-in tournament and if that happens it’ll be on the back of Steph.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Eric Bledsoe, SG, NOP vs GSW, O/U 235

I know some people jumped off the Eric Bledsoe earlier this season, but he fit the category of a decent value play. If we want to lock in the like of Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo we’ll have to sacrifice in other areas. Bledsoe went 5x last night which may not take down a GPP but will suffice in tournaments. On a smaller slate like tonight, it will be important to hit on the correct value and have your studs put you over the top.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF/C, MIL vs BKN, O/U 241.5

The Greek Freak is my favorite tournament play of the night. We were all in awe of the performance he put up against the Nets on Sunday. I know KD is a good defender, but I don’t think he’ll put the clamps on Giannis. As I previously mentioned the Bucks are only 2.5 games behind the Nets for the #2 seed and 3.5 games back of the 76ers for the top seed so they have something to play for. The reigning MVP will need to will his team to a few wins and get some help along the way but I think Antetokounmpo puts up some monster numbers tonight.

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.

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.
