Wow! We have a nice big 12-game NBA slate for Friday night and it is going to be a fun one to play. There are a million different ways you can go with your lineup construction with a ton of good plays from the high-priced studs down to the value options. I did manage to whittle my way down to just 10 selections for my “Droppin’ Dimes” list but there was at least five more that I really wanted to include. So, as a bonus here are a few plays that didn’t quite make the list but received strong consideration: DeMarcus Cousins, Devin Booker, Joel Embiid, Hassan Whiteside, Taurean Prince and Julius Randle. I could go on but I’ll stop there. Be sure to sign up for our Premium Content to get the rest of this article with my top 10 plays along with the rest of the great content here at DailyOverlay.
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.
