We have a 9 game slate of NBA action tonight on Draft. Draft is offering head to head contests, 3 person contests, 6 person contests, 10 person contests, dream team contests and tournaments. For tournaments they are running a 4 person contest ($5, 3 entry max), 5 person contest ($23, 3 entry max) and a head to head contest ($110, single entry). I am avoiding tournaments tonight since the contest sizes are too big. I'm will instead be focusing on all of the other contests.

Let's take a look at the injury report:
  • Chris Paul (out, leg)
  • Dennis Schroder (questionable, ankle)
  • Clint Capela (doubtful, heel)
  • Gary Harris (probable, elbow)
Paul and Capela I am fading completely. Schroder and Harris I am willing to draft but I will be limiting them to 10% of my lineups.

For draft strategy tonight I think your strategy is going to be different based on the size of your contests. For head to head and 3 person contests, if you don't get Harden or Westbrook you should save guard for last. For 6 person or 10 person contests, all things being equal you want to take care of the forward position first. There are going to be more fowards in the bottom tiers than there will be in the upper tiers.

Tonight I will provide 5 tiers of players. Each tier will have 10 players each. Dream team plays will be denoted by a DT next to their name:
