We have a 10 game slate tonight of NBA action. I have decided to just combine all the sites onto one article. Makes it easier for you and easier for me.

On big slates I try not to get too cute. We have 20 teams of players to choose from. Therefore I just like to pick the best players with the best opportunity and hope they deliver. I find that to be a more effective strategy than counting on some 4th man off the bench to get playing time because of injury, foul trouble or ejection.

When building my lineups for all sites I take onto account how they have performed for the season, how they are performing recently (last 4 weeks and last 5 games) and matchup. For Drafters and Draft I'm looking for the best plays overall taking into account position scarcity. For Draftkings I factor in salary.

For Drafters and Draft I'm going to give you the top 15 plays I like today. For Draftkings I'm going to give you the top 10 players in my player pool. I don't play cash games on DraftKings but I will also let you know if they are safe for cash.

When drafting always keep in mind position. If your opponent(s) are full you don't have to take that position until the last round.

Let's start with the top 15 plays for Drafters and Draft. Guard is weaker tonight than Forward and Center. Therefore I will be ranking guards higher.
