NBA FanDuel Lineup picks Top 5 rankings for daily fantasy basketball tonight Wednesday June 9 based on Josh Engleman's projections simulations and ownership Nikola Jokic

The NBA fantasy slates the rest of the way are going to be rather small, which can make it tough to construct a lineup of players you like enough to put money on it. Luckily, there is an NBA DFS alternative with Monkey Knife Fight, which has many contests for the Round 2 games today. MKF features props for users to pick fantasy points, actual points, rebounds and more. You will be competing only against yourself. Also, the payout increases with contests that require more picks. While there are far too many contests to include them all in this article, let’s go through some of the best NBA fantasy Monkey Knife Fight picks to make for NBA playoff games today.

Monkey Knife Fight NBA Fantasy Picks | NBA Playoffs

It is important to note that, much like odds that update throughout the day, contests at MKF are subject to change. So if you like these NBA picks below, it’s wise to jump on them quickly.

Double-Doubling — Goal: Over 2.5 | Prize: 2x

For this contest, gamers pick three players in today’s games, with the goal being to select players to finish with a double-double. While one could pick one or two with a smaller payout, picking three players to finish with a double-double doubles the payout.

The most obvious pick is Giannis Antetokounmpo, who scores and grabs rebounds at a high rate. In a fast-paced game with the Nets, there’s even more opportunity to grab boards.

Nikola Jokic did not get many double-doubles in the first round, but he flirted with them. He has the ability to get one in either rebounds or assists, but rebounds will be his best bet. The issue for him in this category last series was the number of shots going in. Deandre Ayton was a double-double machine in his first few playoff games, and he should get back to that tonight.

MKF NBA Fantasy Pick: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic, DeAndre Ayton

More or Less — Pick More/Less for Each Player | Prize: 3.6x

In this Monkey Knife Fight NBA fantasy contest, it is a simple more/less pick for two players. The stat categories for these players differ, so make sure to pay attention when making picks. Picking both players correctly will pay out 3.6 times the entry fee.

Giannis Antetokounmpo: More than 34.5 Points

Nikola Jokic: More than 10.5 Rebounds

Giannis scored 34 in Game 1 but failed to hit a free throw. He scored over 34.5 in the two games against the Nets before that, then 34 again in the game prior. The Nets don’t have someone on defense who can stop Giannis.

Awesemo NBA DFS projections have Jokic projected for 11.47 rebounds. The Suns are more willing to score in the paint than the Trail Blazers were, which should lead to Jokic being closer to the basket and grabbing more rebounds.

More or Less — Pick More/Less for Each Player | Prize: 3.5x

In this Monkey Knife Fight NBA fantasy contest, it is a simple more/less pick for five players. The stat categories for these players differ, so make sure to pay attention when making picks. The nice thing about this contest is that only four of the five picks need to be correct to earn 3.5 times the entry fee back.

Giannis Antetokounmpo: More than 34.5 Points

Kevin Durant: More than 2.5 Steals and Blocks

Nikola Jokic: More than 10.5 Rebounds

Joe Harris: More than 3.5 Made Threes

Chris Paul: More than 8.5 Assists

Giannis and Jokic were discussed above. Kevin Durant has totaled at least three combined steals and blocks in each of the past five games. He also has two blocks against the Bucks in three of his last four matchups.

The Bucks play a lot of zone defense, which opens up perimeter shots. Joe Harris should be able to take advantage of this, as he did in Game 1. Harris made 5 of 9 attempted 3-pointers. He also has hit at least four in three of this past four matchups with the Bucks.

Chris Paul should be able to dominate the Nuggets in the pick-and-roll, racking up plenty of assists during it. He has at least nine assists in two of his past three games. Paul also has double-digit assist totals in each of the past two games against the Nuggets.

More or Less — Pick More/Less for Each Player | Prize: 125x

This is another More or Less contest, but picking this big contest correctly wins 125 times the entry. It won’t be easy; eight players’ fantasy points need to be correct. However, it’s worth sprinkling a little bit on since the payout is so great.

Giannis Antetokounmpo: More than 59.5 Fantasy Points

Kevin Durant: Less than 56.5 Fantasy Points

Nikola Jokic: More than 55.5 Fantasy Points

Kyrie Irving: More than 48.5 Fantasy Points

Jrue Holiday: Less than 42.5 Fantasy Points

Devin Booker: More than 41.5 Fantasy Points

Khris Middleton: More than 39.5 Fantasy Points

Michael Porter Jr.: More than 34.5 Fantasy Points
