It’s football Sunday! Now that I’m done pretending to conduct the NFL Redzone theme song in my living room, I’m intrigued by this NBA slate. Why not drown in DFS today? Diving in! 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 that’s worth considering when you look over my picks, as some of them are related to the new blocks, steals scoring etc.
