Ah, the eve of football Sunday. What else can we do aside from pass the time with NFL research while our NBA lineups roll in the background. Let’s do this using the cheat sheet format, with preferred players (in all formats) in GREEN and preferred tournament options in GOLD. These are the players I’ll have nearly locked in my lineups, with the non-highlighted names being peppered in here and there.
FYI: I play primarily on FanDuel, so it’s worth considering that when you look over my picks, as some of them are related to the new blocks, steals scoring etc.
Implied team totals as of 2PM EST:

GS: Shaun Livingston (Boost: Stephen Curry, Patrick McCaw, Andre Iguodala)
