Spectre’s NBA DFS Breakdown: Saturday, November 25th, 2017

Today I’m getting a Christmas tree and writing this breakdown.  We have some bouncing back to do following one of the strangest nights in the NBA DFS world so far, so let’s get to it.  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.
