Yesterday’s six-game slate ended up being pretty much as we expected, straightforward with the value that opened up after Luka Doncic, Bam Adebayo, Jimmy Butler, Jaylen Brown and, Giannis Antetokonmpou all sat out due to injuries became a must. So today, we get just three games to tackle. The number of games we had yesterday, as I said, I feel, is the sweet spot in DFS, but I’m not as enthusiastic about having a much smaller slate today. Options are minimal with just three games, making it more difficult to get unique, so you’re not splitting your winnings with multiple other players. Therefore, it will be crucial to pay attention to the value that opens up today to gain an edge. Make sure you’re taking some stands as well, such as pivoting from high rostered players to others who are lower rostered but project just as well in an attempt to separate your lineup from the rest of the field. Now, let’s go ahead and jump into things and see if we can’t end this weekend with a bang.
