Top 5 FanDuel NBA DFS Picks Today

5. Gary Trent Jr., Toronto Raptors

Trent is a solid FanDuel NBA DFS pick due to the lack of value options available in the current slate. While his minutes have decreased lately, his price has also dropped to just $4,700, making him a good value play. He is projected for 22 goals and appears in the optimal lineup 33% of the time. Although he is mostly scoring dependent, he has a good matchup against the Thunder and could potentially shoot his way into more minutes. Trent projects for 14 points, 2.5 rebounds, one assist, and a stock and a half. As the slate opens up, he could fall a bit with the arrival of news, but right now he looks like a strong paydown option.

4. Isaiah Joe, Oklahoma City Thunder

Joe provides value with his low salary of $4,400. He is projected for 20.5 points and is in the optimal lineup 35% of the time. Although he is mostly scoring dependent and has a tough matchup, he has played 26 minutes per game and averages 0.8 fantasy points per minute. With a usage rate of 17%, he contributes 11 points, 3.5 boards, two assists and a stock. Joe is a great option to consider for a balanced build that allows for paying up at other positions.

3. Harrison Barnes, Sacramento Kings

Barnes is a small forward and power forward with a projection of 26 fantasy points, goal of 31, and he is in the optimal lineup 42% of the time. Barnes has been playing a lot of minutes recently, which is a positive factor, and he has a decent matchup against Brooklyn.

Barnes is a good fit for a balanced build, which is a priority in FanDuel NBA DFS right now.

2. Josh Okogie Phoenix Suns

Okogie is a shooting guard and small forward projected for 26 points and valued at $5,100. His goal is 30 points, and he is in the optimal lineup 51% of the time. He plays more than 30 minutes per game, and the Orlando Magic team he is playing against is not known for its defense. Okogie is projected to score 13 points and grab six boards, and he has an assist rate of 17%. These stats indicate that Okogie has the potential to deliver good value for his price on FanDuel.

1. Cameron Johnson, Brooklyn Nets
