Top 5 FanDuel NBA DFS Picks Today
5. Bennedict Mathurin, Indiana Pacers
Priced at $5,100 and projected for 26 points, Mathurin has a goal of 31 points and is in the optimal lineup 21% of the time. He may only play 26 minutes, but his positional flexibility and the favorable matchup against the Hornets make him an attractive option. With a fantasy point per minute and 27% usage, he can contribute 18 points, five boards, an assist and possibly a stock. Moreover, Mathurin’s great positional flexibility is a bonus for his price tag. However, it is important to note that he is currently questionable, so his availability for the game should be monitored closely.

4. Jalen Green, Houston Rockets
Green is projected for 37 fantasy points and is in the optimal lineup 22% of the time, making him a great FanDuel NBA DFS pick. He is a point guard and shooting guard priced at $7,500. He has been playing massive minutes as of late, and while projected for 36 minutes, Green could see upwards of 40 minutes in the game. He averages a fantasy point per minute, and playing against Golden State is a great pace-up spot for him. Although Houston is not a great team, Green is expected to score around 25 points, grab 4.5 rebounds, dish out four assists and steal the ball at least once. Betting on his minutes is a wise move since Houston is trying to win games instead of tanking the season.
3. Taurean Prince, Minnesota Timberwolves
Prince is a small forward and power forward priced at $4,000, projected for 21 fantasy points and a goal of 26. He’s in the optimal lineup 26% of the time and got the start on Saturday when Anthony Edwards was out, and it’s expected that Edwards won’t play again today. Although Prince is not a high-scoring player, he played 29 minutes in the last game. This might be a difficult matchup for him, but it’s a great spot to find value since he’s priced as if he’s not starting. Prince is projected to score 12 points, grab 3.5 rebounds, dish out two assists and get at least one steal. With his eligibility as a small forward and power forward and his small $4,000 price tag, he’s one of the better point-per-dollar in FanDuel NBA DFS.
2. Tyus Jones, Memphis Grizzlies
Jones is listed at $6,600 and is projected to score 35 to 39 points, making him an optimal lineup pick 26% of the time. Jones plays as a point guard and is the starter until Ja Morant gets back, playing an average of 32 minutes per game. He is known for producing over a fantasy point per minute and can still do so even in a pace-down game against Dallas. With Memphis being a 1-point favorite in an ultra-competitive game, Jones is expected to get more minutes, increasing his overall production. Jones is projected for 15 points, eight assists and four boards, as well as another stock and a half. He does a little bit of everything out on the court, with massive assist numbers being a standout.
1. P.J. Washington, Charlotte Hornets
Washington is priced at $6,100 and is projected to score 31 points, with a goal of 36. He is in the optimal lineup 28% of the time. Washington plays 32 minutes per night and could play a few minutes at the five based on the team’s health. He produces 0.98 fantasy points per minute, making him a solid pick. Washington is projected for 15.5 points, six boards, 2.5 assists and two stocks. His power forward eligibility is massive, providing additional flexibility for DFS lineups. Overall, there is no better play than Washington today.
