DRAFT NBA Value Watch: Wednesday, February 14th

Aaron Hendrix will be bringing Premium subscribers his tiers for head-to-head, three-man, and six-man drafts on DRAFT. Included will be strategy discussion, options for the day’s slate and players that might go overlooked on the DRAFT platform.

Wednesday, February 14th

Good afternoon Grinders! Welcome to our newest addition to DRAFT Premium. Each day, I will go over the NBA slate with tier rankings for head-to-head, three man, and six man drafts. I’ll also provide a brief slate analysis as to how to attack drafts for the slate.

A couple notes to remember about DRAFT contests. One, there is no salary cap so you’re not worried about fitting players in on a budget. Raw fantasy points is what matters most, not the popular point per dollar. Second, while there is no late swap, if a player is ruled out, you will be able to swap them out. For more information on how this works, read the DRAFT Swap Rules Page – for this reason you can take some marginal chances in the later rounds on players that are questionable to play. Last, roster requirements are two guards, two forwards, and one center. All analysis and rankings will be based on that.

What better way to piss off your significant other than to watch NBA all night long while sweating a 12 game slate. That’s precisely what we have this Valentine’s Day and it’s a great set of games that include two games with totals of 227 and another three topping 215. It’s close as to who the top overall pick is but I give the edge today to Anthony Davis who plays in one of those massive 227 total games with Russell Westbrook coming in at 2nd due to a tough match up in Memphis. James Harden is a close #3 with Andre Drummond the top center and the #4 overall choice.
