The NBA DFS season kicks off with a small 2 game double-header as the Sixers/Celtics and Thunder/Warriors begin the 2018-2019 season.  Make sure you are joined into our Slack Chat NBA Channel (#NBA-DFS) at so you can get up to the minute advice from our NBA DFS team for this season

Here’s a quick cheat sheet to start with the small 2 game slate.



  1. Stephen Curry
  2. Kyrie Irving
  3. Terry Rozier
  4. TJ McConnell — VALUE PLAY


  1. Dennis Schroder – Top play tonight
  2. Klay Thompson
  3. JJ Redick
  4. Marcus Smart — Sneaky play today.


Tonight is the night to pay up at SF today with Durant and George having such high ceilings and on a small slate there is little value at this position today.

  1. Paul George
  2. Kevin Durant
  3. Robert Covington

NOTE:  Gordon Hayward is going to be limited to 20-25 minutes.


  1. Patrick Patterson — Value Play
  2. Jaysom Tatum
  3. Jerami Grant — Value Play


  1. Al Horford
  2. Nerlens Noel — Monitor Steven Adams status
  3. Aron Baynes — Value Play


Team to go light on:  Boston Celtics — Lots of mouths to feed and minutes spread around.
