Top 5 FanDuel NBA DFS Picks Today
5. Malik Beasley, Los Angeles Lakers
Beasley is projected for 25 points and costs $4,900, making him a solid FanDuel NBA DFS pick. While he has a tough matchup against Dallas, he is in the optimal lineup 20% of the time and is expected to receive significant minutes. Beasley has a 23% usage rate and averages 0.85 fantasy points per minute in his 29 minutes of playing time. He provides a great value option, as he can play both shooting guard and small forward positions and averages 15 points, 4.5 rebounds, two assists and a steal per game. Although this is a pace-down spot, the Lakers are favorites in this game, and Dallas’ defense is not strong, making it a great opportunity to pick Beasley.

4. Matisse Thybulle, Portland Trail Blazers
Despite his lack of offensive production, Thybulle has a good chance of getting stocks in his upcoming game. He is projected for 23 fantasy points at a cost of $4,400, with a goal of 30 points. Thybulle has been in the optimal lineup 21% of the time, and his 7.5 points on 11% usage, four boards and two assists, along with his two steals and one block per game, can easily translate to quite a few fantasy points on FanDuel. If he has an outlier day and can reach 30 fantasy points, he will be a great value pick.
3. De’Andre Hunter, Atlanta Hawks
Hunter is a small forward and power forward and has a price tag of $5,200. Hunter is projected for 27 points, and the goal is 34. He is in the optimal lineup 21% of the time. Hunter has been playing more minutes lately, with an average of 34 minutes per game under coach Quin Snyder. He averages 0.8 fantasy points per minute, and in a game with a high total of 247, Hunter is likely to benefit from the massive pace-up spot for Atlanta. With 17 points, 4.5 boards, an assist and a stock, Hunter is sure to earn his keep.
2. Xavier Tillman, Memphis Grizzlies
Tillman is eligible as both a power forward and center, which adds a lot of flexibility to a lineup. Projected for 29.5 fantasy points at a price of $5,400, his goal is to reach 35 points. He is in the optimal lineup 23% of the time, and with 27 minutes expected, there is room for some upside. He is a reliable per-minute producer, with stats like 10 points, nine boards, 2.5 assists and two stocks per game. He’s well rounded and can fill out the stat sheet. While there’s some downside risk since he doesn’t always close games, the matchup against San Antonio makes Tillman a strong pick.
1. Tyus Jones, Memphis Grizzlies
Jones is projected for 38 FanDuel NBA DFS points and is priced at $6,700, making him a great pick for DFS players. He has a goal of 41.5 points and is in the optimal lineup 25% of the time. Jones plays 33 minutes per game and has a usage rate of 20%. He averages 1.1 fantasy points per minute and is expected to have a good game against the San Antonio Spurs. Jones is a good pick because of his ability to do a little bit of everything on the court, with 16.5 points, 8.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.5 stocks per game. He is expected to have a good game against the Spurs’ poor defense and should have little trouble picking up assists. Jones is the number one ConTENder for the day.
