NBA - Value Index - Christmas Day

We have 5 games on Santa's big day! I wish they could flex some of these out when scheduling doesn't favor the slate. What I mean is New Orleans and Golden State are on this schedule, but clearly that was made when Zion was healthy and Golden State wasn't without...well, everyone.

Bagley is one of the sneakier values on this slate against the Rockets who are allowing the third-most DK points to power forwards

Wednesday's Value Index was straight fire, with one swing and miss, which happened to be Luka Doncic.

People are on the Luka regression train already. And while he certainly can't play perfectly every night, we don't know if what he is doing this year is sustainable all year long. So until he proves us wrong, we will be jamming him in.

NBA Fantasy Basketball Picks for DraftKings' 6-game Slate Baby watch 2019 continues for this guy and after my wife's doctor's appointment Monday morning, it sounds like our second darling will be fast tracked to join our family. In the meantime,…

I mean, the Anthony Davis stuff is basically comical these days, but also concerning. The Lakers had all day to report on his shoulder and then in minutes before the second game locked, AD was ruled questionable and then available to play...all within 10 minutes.

The No. 3 pick in the draft has shot totals of 13, 16 and 20, all trending up in his first games of his career.
