NBA Rankings: DraftKings DFS Fantasy Basketball Rankings for May 28 | Stud, Midrange & Value Picks + Injury Notes

Jeff Pratt ranks the top plays in each salary range for Friday’s fantasy basketball slate on DraftKings, which starts at 7:00 p.m. ET.

NBA: Playoffs-Dallas Mavericks at Los Angeles Clippers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Friday’s NBA rankings for the three-game DraftKings slate. The idea of this page is to rank the top DraftKings options in each salary range, helping you make quick decisions when debating which players to roster. Players are sorted from top to bottom in order of preference.

Each baller listed here is someone I’m considering in my player pool. If a player is not listed but is available to play, that just means I’m not considering using them on this slate. They might be a viable option but didn’t make my cut.

This page will be updated after the 1:30 p.m. ET and 5:30 p.m. ET injury reports, and you can confirm additional updates by checking the time stamp. When a player has a status change, they will now be bolded in the injuries and notes section.
