It was a strong week for the DFS NBA experts who put up solid grades and DailyOverlay scores every day. It was a big week for FakePigskin who finished in first place on both Tuesday and Friday to catapult them into third place in the overall standings. And the battle for first place is getting closer and closer as DailyRoto and RotoGrinders NBA Grind Down continue to produce solid picks every week.

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.
