Overall it was an average week from the experts, but we continue to see the same experts at or near the top of the standing every day. This week one expert, RotoGrinders NBA Grind Down, came in first place on both Wednesday and Friday as they have now closed the gap on first place in the overall standings.

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.
