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:

Looking back at Tuesday’s NBA DFS slate, we saw scores for winning GPP’s on FantasyDraft sit around 350 with a condensed minimum cash line at 315 as we saw some highly concentrated ownership on two of the top raw points plays of the night as Luka Doncic (83%) and Bradley Beal (66%) put up 65 and 57 fantasy points on this night and were constants in most of the winning lineups.

The late news that Thomas Bryant would be out alongside Moe Wagner, pushed the remaining Wizards like Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans into super chalk as they were well over 50% owned in GPP play and delivered solid 30 fantasy point nights.

Looking at the winning lineup last night, it had both Luka and Beal along with the chalk Wizards value in a lineup, that frankly, reminds us we don’t always have to zig when folks zag. The build was centered around Luka/Beal while the remaining six players in their build all averaged 38 fantasy points – using a balanced mid-tier build to take down this slate.

Now, let head into tonight’s slate!
