The NBA wraps up the weekend with four games on this Sunday, and you can use these FanDuel daily picks to get your roster set for all today’s action.
Even though the NFL dominates the center stage of the sports world on this Championship Sunday with a pair of good matchups, the NBA is not idle with four games on tap throughout the day setting up some solid all-day options if you’d like a side of DFS fantasy basketball with your main course today. Check out my FanDuel daily picks on the following slides to see who I think makes sense to get on your roster from today’s limited slate.

The four games today start at 3:30, so its an early lock time shortly after the AFC Championship game kicks off. There are two games that start at 3:30 as Dallas visits Houston in a Lone Star State rivalry and the Nets host the Thunder. At 6:00, the other two games get underway as the Raptors host the Clippers and the 76ers host Boston in a 7:00 makeup of yesterday’s game which was postponed due to the snow storm.
With those eight teams in action, there are enough players to choose from to put together a solid DFS team. My FanDuel daily picks on the following slides are a great place to start. Each position has two slides assigned to it–one for high-salary options and one for high-value options. Each slide contains at least two options with a few extras thrown in where possible. I base each pick on the current form of each player and the positional matchups each player will face in tonight’s game.
This month, I also have started to rank my picks using stars after each selection. For a full explanation of the rating system, check out the last slide of this post, but the short version is “more stars=more confidence.” On the final slide of the post, you can see my recent results at each level of confidence. Also on the final slide of the post, you can see how I’m putting together the best of my picks into my lineup for today’s contests.
