Welcome, to the Judge’s Verdict. We have an excellent eight-game NBA slate tonight, but we have lots of new players on teams for the first time. So, we are going to have to make educated guesses as to the roles/minutes for several players. To that end, let’s be smart with our bankroll tonight.
Here are some of my top tournament plays for tonight’s NBA slate.
Note: The numbers in parenthesis refer to the salaries of that particular player. The first number is the FanDuel (“FD”) salary, while the second number is the DraftKings (“DK”) salary.
Colin Sexton (5.0, 4.5)
I have played Sexton so much this season, and it has mostly been a disappointing experience. My biggest issues with him have been the lack of usage and peripheral stats. He normally goes long stretches without looking at the basket, which causes me to start screaming at him to shoot. However, the Cavs are still banged up and traded away Burks. And last game, I saw a different Sexton against a stingy Boston team. He lit them up for 27 points on 11-24 shooting in 42 minutes. His price barely went up, and he gets an NBA fantasy gold matchup against the Wizards tonight. So, I have no issue going back to Sexton once again tonight.
