Top 5 FanDuel NBA DFS Picks Today

5. Spencer Dinwiddie, Brooklyn Nets

Priced at only $6,900, Dinwiddie is projected for 38 points, with a goal of 37.5, and he is in the optimal lineup 40% of the time. With 39 minutes on the court, Dinwiddie is expected to deliver about 1 fantasy point per minute. Although the series has not gone well for Brooklyn, things may improve for Dinwiddie when the team plays at home. With 22% usage, he has not been as dominant as expected, but he projects for 17 points, 9.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and maybe a stock today. Since the game in Brooklyn is likely to be more competitive, it is easier to get to the Nets today, making Dinwiddie a great option.

4. Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors

Curry is projected for 52 fantasy points, and he is in the optimal lineup 41% of the time. With Draymond Green out, Curry is expected to play slightly more minutes than usual, likely around 40 minutes. He is averaging 1.33 fantasy points per minute and projects for a 32% usage rate, 32 real points, seven rebounds, seven assists and 1.5 stocks. The Warriors need to win this game, and Curry is one of the players that gives them the best chance to do so. Expect him to be heavily involved in the offense and put up big numbers.

3. Andrew Wiggins, Golden State Warriors

Wiggins is projected to score 34 points and is in the optimal lineup 35% of the time. He projects for 36 minutes, and at 0.95 fantasy points per minute, he has the potential to record 19 points, five rebounds, 2.5 assists and two stocks. Wiggins is eligible as a small forward and power forward, which gives him an edge in terms of positionality. In Game 2, Wiggins played significant minutes and will likely continue to do so as the Warriors try to come back from a 2-0 deficit. At a price of $6,400, Wiggins is a solid pick for FanDuel NBA DFS.

2. Mikal Bridges, Brooklyn Nets

Mikal Bridges is a shooting guard and small forward projected for 43 fantasy points, and he is in the optimal lineup 43% of the time. Bridges has had two strong halves in previous games, but the question remains whether he can put together a full game. With 40 minutes of playing time, Bridges averages over a fantasy point per minute. However, he does not contribute much outside of scoring, projecting for only 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and two stocks. For Brooklyn to have any chance of winning, Bridges needs to step up his scoring game and hopefully contribute more on the defensive side with some stocks.

1. Domantas Sabonis, Sacramento Kings

Sabonis is a power forward and center who is projected for 49 fantasy points and is in the optimal lineup of 46% of the time. With no Green in the mix, Sabonis is expected to perform even better. He is projected to play 37 minutes, but he could potentially play more. Sabonis averages 1.3 fantasy points per minute and should dominate, projecting for 19 points and 15 rebounds. In addition to his impressive rebounds, Sabonis can also provide seven assists and possibly more than a stock in a more competitive game. Although the Kings are 5.5-point dogs, this is a pace-up spot for them against Golden State. Even though Sabonis is usually a center, he has power forward eligibility, which is why he is No. 1 for this slate.
