NBA DFS Primer: Saturday (12/4)

After a sizeable nine-game slate on Friday, we get an appealing six games to kick off the weekend. Middle of the pack slates like today signifies what I consider to be the sweet spot. The player pool becomes a lot more condensed, making it somewhat less challenging to identify the players who have the highest percentage of being optimal. There’s also still enough value that opens up throughout the day, allowing you to differentiate your lineups from the rest of the field. Indeed, taking down any DFS contest is never a walk in the park, but smaller slates are somewhat less complicated. They’re fewer games which means smaller player pools and less news to sift through, allowing for more concise lineup decisions. So let’s highlight some aspects of this slate I feel can help us navigate it and find our way to the top of the leader boards, starting with the game totals.
