Top 5 DraftKings NBA DFS Picks Today
5. Drew Eubanks, Portland Trail Blazers
Eubanks is center eligible and projected for 25 points at a cost of $3,800. He is expected to start for the Blazers today with no Jusuf Nurkic, and Eubanks has shown that he can produce when given the minutes, averaging 28 minutes per start this season. With the potential for 28 minutes today and a nice matchup against Washington, Eubanks is an excellent value play.
4. Jalen McDaniels, Charlotte Hornets
McDaniels is eligible at both forward spots and projects for 28 points at a cost of $4,700. Gordon Hayward will probably not be playing, which means McDaniels should get more minutes and create more value. He’s shown that he can produce, averaging 0.85 fantasy points per minute, and he’s in a great matchup against the Pistons.

3. Harrison Barnes, Sacramento Kings
Barnes is small forward and power forward eligible and projects for 31 points at $5,300. Barnes has been playing huge minutes for the Kings recently, and with no De’Aaron Fox, he could see a few extra shots tonight. He’s in a great pace-up spot against the Pacers and has shown that he can produce, recording 0.88 fantasy points per minute.
2. Davion Mitchell, Sacramento Kings
Mitchell is only a point guard and projects for 28 points at $5,600. Mitchell has been playing very well recently and like Barnes benefits from Fox sitting. He is also averaging 0.90 fantasy points, and he should be able to get more in a pace-up spot with Indiana.
1. Malaki Branham, San Antonio Spurs
Branham is the No. one contender for today’s NBA DFS lineup, as he for 25.5 points at just $3,600. He is expected to be the starting point guard for the Spurs, who are without Tre Jones and Jeremy Sochan. Branham has 0.78 fantasy points per minute and a 19% usage rate. He is expected to contribute 14 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3 assists and a steal in today’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Despite being massive underdogs, the Spurs are short on players and ball handling, so Branham’s minutes are expected to be safe.
