5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 5/7

NBA DFS has a [slate size] 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 – Tim Hardaway Jr., SF, DAL vs CLE O/U 219

Hardaway Jr. is mid-price player ballin’ lately. He’s averaged 37.25 DK points over his last three games. Make sure to check the news before locking THJR into your lineups. If he’s starting then he’s a good play. If he’s coming off of the bench then let’s look somewhere else for some value.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Damian Lillard, PG, POR vs LAL O/U 221

Dame Time was off the clock for a few weeks but he’s back baby! Lillard is averaging 56.38 DK points over his last four games. He’s priced at 9.7K tonight so 6x value would be 58.2 DK points. That’s completely within the range of outcomes for Lillard tonight.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Mo Bamba, C, ORL @ CHA O/U 217.5

Mo Bamba is priced 6.9K tonight on FanDuel. We would need him to score 48.3 FanDuel points for 7x value. 

If he’s starting there’s a great chance he reaches the 48 fantasy point mark. He’s averaged 50 FD points over the last two games. He’s been starting so I love it if that continues. I’ll pass if he’s back on the bench.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Jayson Tatum, PF, BOS @ CHI O/U 223.5

Tatum is averaging 57.13 FD points over his last four games. He’s been playing really well with or without Jaylen Brown in the lineup, but I really like him with Brown out.

The injury report has Brown listed as out tonight so Tatum will be Mr. Do-It-All for the Celtics tonight. I’m expecting another 50+ fantasy point performance.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Nikola Jokic, C, DEN @ UTA O/U 216.5

Jokic gets a chance to solidify his MVP candidacy with a matchup against Rudy Gobert and the Utah Jazz.

These two teams combined for some great playoff basketball in the bubble last season. Most of those games were dominated by guards Jamal Murray and Donovan Mitchell. Tonight isn’t going to go that way.

Murray is out with injury which means more work for Jokic. I don’t know if Nikola can put up a triple double tonight but a high double double is definitely in the cards.

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.
