The experts seems to be settling into a groove now for the NBA season. The overall grades and scores this week were stronger than they were the opening week of the NBA season. Also notice that the “sleeper” from one day often becomes a consensus pick the next day (or whenever that player plays again). A few examples this week were players like T.J. McConnell, Evan Fournier and Kristaps Porzingis.

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 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!
