We have a 3 game slate of NBA action tonight on Draft. Draft is running head to head contests, 3 person contests, dream team contests and tournaments. For the tournaments Draft is running a 3 person draft tournament ($5, 3 entry max) and two head to head tournaments ($23 2 entry max and $110 single entry). I am fine with any and all contests tonight as long as they are within your budget.

Let's take a look at the injury report:
  • Joel Embiid (probable back)
  • Otto Porter (questionable hip)
I'm fine with you drafting any of them tonight. Just make sure they don't represent more than 10% of your lineups in case they get scratched.

For the draft strategy tonight, the forward position has the biggest drop off in talent on tonight's slate. You really want to try and get either LeBron James or Giannis Antetokounmpo. Not only are they the top 2 talents on the slate, they both play forward. If you miss out on either of them then you HAVE to take Anthony Davis. Otherwise you are probably completely dead in the water tonight. Center is the next position. If you can get Cousins and Embiid doesn't play for some reason you will have a HUGE advantage at center. However, if you can't get Cousins or Embiid, just wait until the 5th round to draft a Center. Obviously in head to heads if a center is taken don't take a center until the 5th round.

Here are the players that I am targeting tonight in snake drafts, followed by the players that I like for Dream team. For the snake draft player rankings I am doing three tiers of players. Each tier will have 5 players each. For the dream team players, I will give you up to 5 players at each position to consider.
