Top 5 DraftKings NBA DFS Picks Today
No. 5: Immanuel Quickley, New York Knicks
At $5,100, the Knicks point guard/shooting guard, is projected for 27 points. He’s in the optimal lineup 20% of the time, and his 28 minutes of play and 20% usage make him a good choice for GPPs.
No. 4: Mark Williams, Charlotte Hornets
The backup center for the Hornets is the best sub-$4,000 play on the slate. He’s projected for 22 points and in the optimal lineup 21% of the time. With 19 minutes of play and 1.15 fantasy points per minute, the matchup is irrelevant. The key is to hope for foul trouble or limited play from Mason Plumlee.

No. 3: Jalen Brunson, New York Knicks
One of my favorite plays of the day, Brunson is point guard eligible and priced at $7,900. He is projected for 44.5 points and in the optimal lineup 27% of the time. In a pace-up spot against the Lakers, Brunson is expected to average 1.2 fantasy point per minute.
No. 2: R.J. Barrett, New York Knicks
The Knicks small forward is projected for 39 points and in the optimal lineup 30% of the time. Barrett is expected to play 37 minutes and have 26% usage. In a pace-up spot against the Lakers, he is expected to have 24 real points, 6.5 rebounds, three assists and a steal.
No. 1: Quentin Grimes, New York Knicks
Grimes is shooting guard/small forward eligible and has a projected score of 25 points. He has performed well in his last 10 games, and he is expected to play 35 minutes per game and is a good option for a utility player. Grimes is a solid player with an average of 12 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. He may not be the most exciting option, but at $4,400, he is a top contender.
