5 FREE FanDuel and DraftKings NBA DFS Picks 5/9

NBA DFS has a six-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 – Naji Marshall, SG/SF, NO @ CHA O/U 222

Marshall is the highest rated player in the Team Rise or Fall NBA DFS Study Hub for DraftKings. He’s priced at 4.7K today so we need 28.2 DraftKings points for 6x value. That seems doable.

Marshall averaged 22.8 DK points over his last three games. I’m looking for him to go over that number tonight.

DraftKings NBA DFS Target – Nikola Vucevic, C, CHI @ DET O/U 218.5

Vucevic is averaging over 50 DK points in his last three, five, and seven games. He was playing well before being traded from Orlando to Chicago and that has continued with his new team.

Vucevic has a salary of 10.6K tonight. He needs 53 DK points for 5x value and 63.6 DK points for 6x value. I can see him falling somewhere in that range.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Delon Wright, PG, SAC vs OKC O/U 223

Wright has been playing out of his mind, (Averaging 52.4 FD points over his last three games) so he’s seen his salary go up to 8.1k. I’m not in love with that price but I’m still firing up Wright on a six-game slate.

FanDuel NBA DFS Target – Naji Marshall, SG/SF, NO @ CHA O/U 222

With Zion Williamson out Naji Marshall is getting more run and putting up decent numbers. He’s averaging 23.2 FD points over his last three games.

Marshall’s salary is 4.8K today. We would need him to score 33.6 FD points for 7x value. I don’t think he hits 33 fantasy points but 27-29 seems very likely.

NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – Nikola Vucevic, C, CHI @ DET O/U 218.5

Vucevic stands out to me today on both sites. He’s priced at 10.6k on DraftKings and 9.7k on FanDuel. I like him more for FD based on salary, but he’s well worth his price on either site today.

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.
