One of the toughest decisions we have every week as daily fantasy players is who to start at tight end. It is also one of those things that is very site specific. Whether the scoring system is PPR or half PPR can determine if a guy is playable or not.

We have 14 games in the NBA today, but 2 start early. We are going to talk about the 12 games on the main 7PM start time slate. Two games are slow to have lines posted. One is the Spurs/Pacers matchup with the statuses of both Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis still up in the air.

Massive 13-game slate for NBA DFS action here on Wednesday. The Association takes Thanksgiving off, so they are trying to squeeze these games in tonight. There is a massive amount of things to discuss, so the format is a little different today. With so many games, you are going to see high cash lines and big scores winning tonight.

Just a small four game slate here for Tuesday NBA DFS action. The big favorites are both on the road, so all four games could stay close and be in play. At least that helps keep options open for us. The Clippers Wizards game has the highest total on the day and the closest spread, so that one stands out most for daily fantasy production.

My advice for this slate is going to be very much the same as my advice was for the Sunday/Monday slate on the livestream this week. Play as many guys from the 60+ point total game between the #2 and #3 scoring offenses as you can fit in. Your lineups should skew heavily towards tonight's MNF game with sprinkles of guys from the early Thursday Lions/Bears game that has a total 20 points below this one, so it’s not a hot take to say go heavy on Monday.
