In this article I’m going to quickly go over some basic slate info to get our day started. This is not going to be an in depth detailed breakdown of each matchup, but more of a Macro view of the slate each morning. I’ll drop some injury blurbs in here as well that we should be monitoring and I’ll try to make a note of what those injuries mean for us in our DFS contests today.
I’m confident in our team here at Rise or Fall, and I am confident that our Content, Tools, and One-on-One Coaching will help you become a more competitive player right out of the gate. Check out our Membership Options here
Pace up or Pace down
What is Pace? Well, a quick google search leads us a great explanation.
Pace, or how many possessions a team uses per 48 minutes, is something we often discuss when referring to specific teams or even specific eras of NBA history. It goes to the core of a team’s identity, defines it against its peers. Fast teams are fun. They run, they score, they entertain. Slow teams defend.

I love you all, but I can’t give everything away for free. If you want more insight on these injury situations and how they effect tonight’s slate you’ll have to sign up for one of our Patreon Memberships, and jump in the discord with the coaches. As more news drops we will let you know exactly who is out and exactly who benefits with each situation.
I’ve set up a Rating for both Fanduel and Draftkings on the ROF Study Hub. This rating is something I’ve been working on that takes into account several factors of each slate each day. Rather than simply looking at the standard Projection and Value, my hope is that this rating will give us another level of insight each day.
