The new DraftKings and FanDuel Single Entry Picks are LIVE for 1/20! We have some injuries to navigate for tonight’s 10 game slate. Jonas Valancunias is out tonight due to health protocols which makes Xavier Tillman a great play on DraftKings at $3,500. He should be popular but, I am willing to eat the chalk there in Single Entry contests.
Chris Boucher is priced in the mid-range against Miami. It’s really hard not to like Boucher if you project him to get 28-32 minutes. His DraftKings price tag of $7,300 is an easy price point to get to. $8,100 on FanDuel is harder to get to but, he is a great tournament play on both sites.
Jerami Grant and Derrick Rose are plays that I will be looking to in Single Entry contests on DraftKings. I probably won’t play them both but, they both have the upside to score 50 points on DraftKings if they have a hot shooting night.
Luka Doncic is my top pay up option of the night on both sites. Luka’s usage is through the roof and has the upside to be the highest scorer on the slate. If you’re looking for a stud, Luka is the guy for me.
In order to get the best possible Single Entry lineup, I like to focus on the players that have a high probability of paying off their salary or have a ceiling that could lead them to be the highest-scoring player on the slate. That is why you will see such a small player pool in this sheet daily. I am focusing on the best plays of that day because my goal is to make the best lineup possible.
Priority Targets are the players that I want in my lineup. How you get these players in your lineup is truly up to your style of creating lineups. Members often give those players a thumb up in FantasyCruncher or lock those players in. Again, this is really a personal preference.
Ronin Tier Members get a $20 MONTHLY voucher to FantasyCruncher. This is my favorite optimizer in the industry and I use it daily to make my lineups across all sports.
This is a sample of my NBA Building Block. This is where I identify who I would start my Single Entry lineup with DAILY. These players will be in my core for Single Entry contests. Typically, I lock in those four players and crunch my Single Entry lineup from there.
As you can see, there will be four coaches posting Building Blocks before each NBA main slate. How you use this content is up to you. Some members choose to use a thumb on each player that appears in a coach’s Building Block. Odds are if a player appears in all four Building Blocks, it might be a good day to lock them in.
We want to make DFS as easy as possible for you at an affordable cost. The NBA Study Hub is how I start my lineup building and where I go to upload my projections into FantasyCruncher. Sim models and heat maps in the NBA Study Hub are GREAT for those 1v1 or 2v2 player comparisons to determine who is the best play for that day.
Discord is a great place to learn how to improve in DFS and continue to get better. We want sustained success so we must keep striving to get better every day. I host a FantasyCruncher Strategy session every Sunday @ 8 PM EST to go over the week in NBA DFS and identify any strategies we can use to be better going forward!
