For those of you who are finding us for the first time or need a little refresher, Picks and Pivots is a DFS first look column focused on helping you think through how to attack each NBA DFS slate. Picks and Pivots is not a simple “best plays” column but rather it focuses on slate strategy and roster construction to help give you insight into how I will look to play this slate. The goal of this article is to dig through the slate, highlight our top plays and help you identify the best slate strategy across your NBA DFS line-ups.
A Quick Look Back:
My goodness – what in the world was THAT?
For a six-game slate to see winning GPP scores barely above 300 with the minimum cash line around only 260, it was an oddly low scoring night across the industry as only two players – Giannis Antetokounmpo and Rudy Gobert went for 50+ fantasy points.
Going into the night, my expectation was that it would be incredibly high-scoring as we had a ton of punt value with clear paths to high multipliers but ultimately the value chalk (ie. Dennis Smith Jr.) was a massive bust while none of the stars were able to approach their ceiling.
Interestingly enough, there was value that hit – as guys like De’Anthony Melton (who was popping in our optimal all day long), Mikal Bridges and Solomon Hill all went for 30+ fantasy points but on a night where ownership was so heavily concentrated on the same value and same stars, it left the cash line position far lower than we normally would see on a slate of this size.
