Top 5 SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks
SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks Target – Giannis Antetokounmpo F 1x
Giannis comes in as the fifth-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub Projections at 61.55. Milwaukee has the highest implied total on the slate coming in at 120.75 per the NBA Study Hub Vegas Trends.
Giannis is a great cash game play and offers a high floor in tournaments. His ceiling is limited due to the 1x multiplier.
SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks Target – LeBron James G/F 1.15x
LeBron is the fourth-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub Projections coming in at 65.39. He will be the beneficiary of Anthony Davis being out and a huge pace up spot against Brooklyn getting an extra 2.1 possesions per the NBA Study Hub Pace Trends.
Per the NBA Study Hub Sim Model, LeBron James has a 73.5% chance to score 60 SuperDraft points on today’s slate. LeBron will be a core play for me in all contests.
SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks Target – Jimmy Butler F 1.3x
Jimmy Butler is the highest scoring player in the Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub Projections coming in at 66.41. Over his last 10 games, Jimmy Butler is averaging 63.7 SuperDraft points per game per the NBA Study Hub Fantasy Point Trends.
1.3x is a great multiplier for a player with the floor that Butler has. Butler will be a core play for me today.
SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks Target – Hassan Whiteside C 1.8x
Hassan Whiteside is the third-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub Projections coming in at 65.79. Whiteside will be the beneficiary of Richaun Holes’ absence and a 1.8x multiplier. He is easily the top center on today’s slate and I’m willing to eat the chalk there.
Whiteside has a 15.7% chance to score 80 SuperDraft points on today’s slate per the NBA Study Hub Sim Model. An absolutely MASSIVE ceiling for the big man.
SuperDraft NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – De’Aaron Fox G 1.3x
De’Aaron Fox comes in as the tenth-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Study Hub Projections at 58.04. I would expect the field to jam in James Harden at 1.15x in tournaments.
De’Aaron Fox has a 16.1% chance to score 70 SuperDraft points per the NBA Study Hub Sim Model. I like the pivot off Harden and I love Fox’s upside for a shorthanded Kings team.
