NBA DFS Picks Today: Top DraftKings & FanDuel Plays and Strategy - October 24 | 2022-23 NBA Season

Houston Rockets v Atlanta Hawks
Jalen Green of the Houston Rockets is one of the best DFS picks today.

Eight games are listed for Monday's NBA DFS DraftKings and FanDuel Slates. Both slates begin at 7:00 p.m. EDT tonight. Let's look at the best players to target for both production and value this Monday, October 24.

NBA DFS Star Picks

Ben Simmons, PG/SF/PF, Brooklyn Nets (DraftKings $6.6k, FanDuel $6.4k)

Ben Simmons has played just two games as a Net, and it seems he's still getting acclimated to the offense. His Nets debut was underwhelming, as he fouled out in 23 minutes, but on Friday, he was a lot more effective in the win over the Raptors. Simmons finished with six points, ten boards, and eight assists in 32 minutes of action while also chipping in with two blocks. The former #1 overall pick has triple-double potential every game, which is particularly significant for DraftKings users. Today, Simmons and the Nets will battle the Grizzlies in Memphis, a team that typically plays at a very high pace. Expect the game to feature a lot of fastbreak points, which should play into Simmons' playstyle. The LSU product thrives in transition both as a finisher and playmaker, so look for him to have a strong fantasy output tonight.

Jalen Green, SG/PG, Houston Rockets (DraftKings $6.3k, FanDuel $6.3k)

Jalen Green is up at 23.7 points per game through three contests, and tonight he'll get to face a rebuilding Jazz squad at home. The Jazz have started 3-0, and the Rockets are 0-3, but Utah's perimeter defense definitely has some holes. Green doesn't add a ton of rebounds and assists, but this is a game where he could easily reach 30 points. The second-year guard is Houston's best scorer, and tonight, he should be able to torch this young Utah team.

Other NBA DFS Star Picks: Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets (DraftKings $10.9k, FanDuel $11.2k), Jimmy Butler, SF/PF, Miami Heat (DraftKings $8.9k, FanDuel $8.3k)

NBA DFS Value Picks

Max Strus, SG/SF/PF, Miami Heat (DraftKings $5.0k, FanDuel $4.6k)

Max Strus was a crucial part of Miami's playoff run to end last season, and he's started the 2022-23 campaign strong. The most encouraging stat is that Strus is averaging 30 minutes per game. The undrafted DePaul alum averages 14.7 points, and with backup forward Caleb Martin suspended and backup guard Victor Oladipo hurt, Strus' field goal attempt should rise. Expect him to play big minutes again versus Toronto after logging 37 on Saturday, making him a great value play.

Other NBA DFS Value Picks: Tre Jones, PG, San Antonio Spurs (DraftKings $5.0k, FanDuel $5.4k)
