Top 5 SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks

SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks Target – Nikola Vucevic C 1.25x

Nikola Vucevic comes in at the highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Projections at 69.31. 1.25x is a great multiplier for Vucevic who has been as high as a 1.1x this season. 

The NBA Sim Model gives Vucevic a 12% chance to score 80 SuperDraft points tonight against the Knicks. Vucevic is my top Center of the day and will be in my core for Cash and GPPs. 

SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks Target – LeBron James F 1.05x

LeBron James comes in as the fourth-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Projections at 61.08. At 1.05x, LeBron is a high floor play that I will be targeting in Cash games at a Forward position that typically lacks high upside plays. 

LeBron has averaged 51.23 SuperDraft points over his last 10 games per the NBA Trends Tracker. Charlotte does not have a defensive stopper in the frontcourt that can slow down LeBron and he will have to carry the load for Los Angeles with Anthony Davis out again. 

SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks Target – Anthony Edwards G 1.5x

Anthony Edwards comes in as the twelfth-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Projections at 54.09. The rookie has been shooting at a high volume eclipsing 20 shot attempts in seven of his last eight games. 

The NBA Sim Model gives Edwards a 28% chance to score 60 SuperDraft points on tonight’s slate. Edwards is going to have a hot shooting night if he continues at a 20+ shot volume. I want to have exposure to him in GPPs while he’s still at 1.5x. He could erupt for 80 SuperDraft points. 

SuperDraft NBA DFS Picks Target – Lonzo Ball G 1.45x

Lonzo Ball comes in as the nineteenth-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Projections at 51.52. 1.45x is a great multiplier for Ball and he has performed well in competitive games. I anticipate Ball going overlooked at the Guard spot tonight. 

Ball has a 17% chance to score 60 SuperDraft points per the NBA Sim Model. The matchup against Portland is a good one and New Orleans has a 119 point implied total. 

SuperDraft NBA DFS Lineup Winning Pick – R.J. Barrett G/F 1.6x

R.J. Barrett comes in as the seventeenth-highest projected player in the Rise or Fall NBA Projections at 51.98. I expect his projection to skyrocket in an update with news that Immanuel Quickley is out tonight. 

Barrett has eclipsed 50 SuperDraft points in 3 straight games with the injuries at Guard for New York. I expect Barrett’s shot volume to be high and a 1.6x multiplier is a great spot for him.

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 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 (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.

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.
