Top 5 FanDuel NBA DFS Picks Today
5. LaMelo Ball, Charlotte Hornets
LaMelo Ball is projected for 46.5 points, and with a 30% usage rate, his monster performance in his last game indicates that he has the potential for another great outing against the Chicago Bulls. Ball has the potential for 36 minutes of playing time and is averaging 1.3 fantasy points per minute.
4. Jordan Poole, Golden State Warriors
Jordan Poole is a versatile guard and is projected for 39 points. With 36 minutes of playing time, Poole has a 35% usage rate when the Warriors big guns are sitting. In his last outing, Poole had 28.5 real points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds and 1 steal. This game against the Denver Nuggets may not be the easiest matchup, but if the game remains competitive, Poole will have to step up and contribute on the offensive end.

3. Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers
Anthony Davis is projected for 51.5 points. The Lakers face the Indiana Pacers in a game that is expected to be fast paced, with both teams boasting poor defenses. This creates a great environment for DFS, and with Davis’ 1.57 fantasy points per minute, he is a solid pick for a double-double, with 26 points, 12 boards, 2 assists and 3 blocks.
2. Jonathan Kuminga, Golden State Warriors
Jonathan Kuminga is a small forward and is projected for 28 points. He is expected to start for the Warriors, giving him an opportunity for 30 minutes of playing time. Averaging 0.95 fantasy points per minute, Kuminga is a bargain pick for a player who typically only sees 16 to 20 minutes of playing time.
1. Ty Jerome, Golden State Warriors
Ty Jerome is a shooting guard and is projected for 22.5 points. He is expected to see 24 minutes of playing time, giving him the chance to contribute to the Warriors offense. With 1.0 fantasy point per minute, Jerome is a budget-friendly pick that could be a sneaky play in this matchup.
Today’s FanDuel NBA lineup features a mix of high-potential picks and established stars. Ball, Poole, Davis, Kuminga and Jerome all have the potential to exceed their NBA DFS projections and provide great value for their respective prices.
