Trayce Jackson-Davis is certainly not one of the first names many fans think of when it comes to the Golden State Warriors, but daily Fantasy basketball players may want to keep an eye on him when forming an NBA DFS strategy. The second-round rookie is averaging 10.7 points and six rebounds in 19 minutes over his last three contests. The 6-foot-9 forward also had four blocks with 15 points on 7 of 8 shooting in a Wednesday win over the Bucks, so should you consider him at his lower price tag on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings for Thursday NBA DFS lineups?

The Thursday NBA DFS player pool includes stars like Nikola Jokic, Jayson Tatum and Kevin Durant. To include some of the biggest names in your NBA DFS picks, daily Fantasy basketball players will need to find those values to fill NBA DFS lineups. Could Jackson-Davis be one of those against the Bulls for your NBA daily Fantasy strategy? Before making your NBA DFS picks, be sure to check out the NBA DFS advice, player rankings, stacks, and top daily Fantasy basketball picks from SportsLine's Mike McClure.

On Tuesday, McClure highlighted Cavaliers forward Dean Wade as one of his top picks in his NBA DFS player pool on both sites. The result: Wade had 23 points, eight rebounds, an assist and two steals, returning 41.5 points on DraftKings and 40.1 points on FanDuel. He was one of the cheapest options in the NBA DFS player pool on both sites, making him a huge steal for NBA DFS lineups. Anybody who included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

McClure has turned his attention to NBA action on Thursday and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NBA DFS picks for Thursday, March 7

For Thursday, one of McClure's top NBA DFS picks is Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox, who is listed at $8,500 on DraftKings and $9,500 on FanDuel. Fox had 44 points, four rebounds and four assists in a 130-120 win over the Lakers on Wednesday. It was Fox's second 40-point performance in his last seven contests as he's averaging 31.7 points and 7.1 assists over that span. The 26-year-old is ninth in the NBA in scoring, averaging 27.1 ppg this year.

The Kings play the Spurs, who are allowing the sixth-most ppg (120.2) this season. San Antonio, which plays at the third-fastest pace in the NBA, has allowed at least 123 points in four of its last seven games. Fox already has a 40-point game against the Spurs this season, posting 43 points, eight rebounds and seven assists on Nov. 17 against them as he's averaging 32.5 points and 7.5 assists over his last four matchups against the Spurs.

Another part of McClure's optimal NBA DFS strategy includes Spurs forward Keldon Johnson ($4,900 on DraftKings and $5,700 on FanDuel). Johnson had 18 points and six rebounds in a Tuesday loss to the Rockets after scoring 17 points against the Pacers on Sunday. Johnson is averaging 15.8 ppg this season after posting a career-high 22 ppg last season with limited usage this year, in part due to San Antonio adding No. 1 overall pick Victor Wembanyama.

But the 7-foot-4 phenom is out on Thursday (ankle), giving Johnson a clearer path to replicate some of last season's scoring success. Johnson is averaging 22.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists over six games without Wembanyama this year, including scoring at least 25 points in his last three without the top overall pick. The Spurs play the Kings, who have allowed at least 120 points in two of their last three games and are playing the second half of a back-to-back on Thursday. McClure loves Johnson's value for NBA DFS lineups tonight. See McClure's other NBA DFS picks right here.
