After a “day off” on Thursday with a just a two-game slate, Friday features a nice sized 10-game NBA slate to tip off the weekend. With frigid cold outside (-22 degrees when I took the kids to school this morning in Wisconsin) what better to do than stay inside by the fire and build some DFS lineups and watch how they perform. There isn’t too much impactful injury news to monitor so unless there are some surprise inactives what you see is what you get for tonight’s slate. Note that I am going to post my first “NBA What If” article shortly after this with injury news to monitor and players to consider if key players are ruled out. So, watch for that and let me know your feedback on its usefulness and format.
The grid below is a snapshot of today’s slate that shows the overall rating for each position for each team. The numbers highlighted in red are the positions that are in the top 25% of their position for the slate and indicate good plays. Meanwhile, the numbers highlighted in blue are the positions that are in the bottom 25% of their respective position for the slate and are positions to avoid.
