DRAFT NBA Value Watch: Wednesday, March 14th

Aaron Hendrix will be bringing Premium subscribers his tiers for head-to-head, three-man, four-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, March 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.

Slate Overview

7:00 PM EST : Milwaukee (-8.5) at Orlando O/U 208.0
8:00 PM EST : Washington (-2.5) at Boston O/U 205.0
10:00 PM EST : Miami (-7) at Sacramento O/U 209.0
10:30 PM EST : LA Lakers at Golden St (-7.5) O/U 226.0

It’s a small four game slate and it’s a ugly one with only one game topping a 209 total. That would be the Lakers at Warriors game, which comes in with a 225+ number and is going to be a primary source of fantasy goodness for tonight. The number one overall pick for today’s drafts comes from that game and it’s Kevin Durant. Today is an unusual day in that forward is much stronger than guard. My approach today because scarcity isn’t really a thing other than at center is to draft the highest projected player available. My rankings will reflect that. Let’s take a quick look at position by position projection comparisons.
