We have a 9 game slate of NBA action tonight. Here is my breakdown for Drafters, Draft and DraftKings tonight.

On Drafters my strategy is to attempt to get Lebron James, James Harden and/or Giannis Antetokounmpo as they offer the biggest position scarcity gap on the slate tonight. Harden I'm drafting at SG. James or ABC I'm targeting at SF. Other than those three, I'm drafting based on best available. I like Drummond, Davis, Jokic, Embiid and Griffin for PF and/or C. I'll take Butler at SF or SG if I need one. I like Walker, Lillard, Paul, Irving, Williams, Oladipo, Simmons, Middleton, Holiday and Rubio in that order. 

On Draft Harden is my number one target as he has the biggest upside at guard. Forward has more elite options. Center is stacked so I see zero reason to take a center in 4 person or smaller contests until the last round. The only exception is if I want exposure to a center that's going earlier. After Harden, I want the elite Forwards such as James, Davis, Antetokounmpo or Griffin as there is a big drop off at Forward after that. Guard is pretty similar after Harden and Butler and there are a lot of good Guards to choose from futher down the line. 

With the Cleveland Cavaliers trading half their roster this opens up lots of options tonight. I usually don't like playing more than 2 players from the same team. However, tonight I am making an exception. Lebron James is in an elite spot tonight against the Hawks. I'm locking him in all my lineups. I like the idea of paring James with two other Cavs players and seeing which combination pays off. Go with Green, Osman, JR Smith or Thompson. This is under the assumption that the new arrivals don't play. If they do, I'm only playing James.

I like the spot that Derrick Favors is in tonight for the price. I think he can exceed value here. While I don't like the matchup at ALL, I don't mind me a little bit of Lance Stephenson and Victor Oladipo as contrarian plays. However it's often a good idea to stay away from the Celtics defense. I like all the starters on the Timberwolves tonight. I also like the guards on the Chicago Bulls. Just be careful about the Chicago weather. You may want to reduce your play tonight or enter some fades of that game as insurance since the snow is bad out there. Or you can play the late slate as insurance as well. I like all the starters on the Detroit Pistons tonight. I also like Gobert and Mitchell on the Jazz. Those are some of the plays I like tonight to point you in the right direction.
