We have another change in the overall standing this week as RotoGrinders NBA Grind Down bounces back into first place over DailyRoto, as those two have been battling for the top spot all season long. Overall the expert’s picks were down slightly compared to other weeks, as no expert received a DailyOverlay score over 6.0 this week. Also now that the NFL regular season is done, we will be adding Monday to the list of days that we will track and grade the NBA DFS expert’s picks. Look for a NBA Industry Consensus article about an hour before the first tipoff tonight.

In this article, I will give a brief recap of each day we gathered and graded the experts, including how the Industry Consensus picks did, highlighting which experts were at the top for the day and which players were only called out by one or two experts, but produced an “A+” grade. I will also review the overall standings, highlighting the top experts so far this season. You can view the full NBA Overall Standings here.

As a reminder, we are currently gathering selections and publishing the NBA Industry Consensus articles each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday during the NBA season, so be sure to check back about an hour or so before the first game tips off to get a look at the consensus picks for the day.

On to the grades!
