Welcome to this special NBA edition of Roosevelt’s Playbook! I don’t do an NBA article often due to my work schedule. However, I’m off today so that gives me more time to put out NBA specific content! I currently play NBA on four fantasy sites. DraftKings, FanDuel, Drafters and Draft. So this article will give you a full breakdown on the plays that I like for each site on tonight’s slate.

Tonight we have a full 10 game slate! We have a lot of the center studs tonight but in terms of the overall fantasy studs it’s pretty much the Anthony Davis show and to a lesser extent Kawhi Leonard. If you want to know my thoughts on the days I don’t write an article or if you want to see if there are any last minute changes make sure you check the NBA discussion thread posted daily in our Facebook group The DFS Masters.

Here’s a breakdown of what I like to look at when considering NBA players:

  • Vegas Team Implied Total (The higher the better)
  • Vegas Spread (I like to avoid players on teams that I think will get blown out)
  • Expected minutes played including injuries and expected impact
  • Pace of Play
  • Average Fantasy Points Per Game
  • Average Fantasy Points Per Minute
  • Players Floor & Ceiling For The Season, Last 4 Weeks & Last Week
  • Usage Percentage
  • Opposing defense vs position
  • Opposing defensive real plus minus
  • Opposing defense vs Archetype (Read this article on Rotogrinders to learn more about archetype)

Here’s a breakdown of who I like on today’s slate:

For each player, I list the position that I prefer to draft that player at first. This is VERY IMPORTANT on Drafters and one of the reasons why I’m so successful on this site. Many of the other players there don’t pay attention to this and they handicap the potential output of their team as a result.
