SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks Target – Nikola Jokic C 1.05x
Nikola Jokic comes in as the highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub Projections at 70.59. Jokic draws a matchup against Washington which has to be the best possible matchup for him.

SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks Target – Jerami Grant F 1.3x
Jerami Grant comes in as the second-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub Projections at 63.22. Grant will be the beneficiary for a pace up spot against Chicago with +4.4 possessions per the NBA Study Hub Pace Trends.

Ja Morant comes in as the third-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub Projections at 61.95. Morant has started to look like himself again posting and average of 51.43 SuperDraft points over his last 3 games per the NBA Study Hub Fantasy Points Trends.
