Sunday, January 14th

Hello Grinders. If you are reading this and planning to play NBA DFS today, you are a true degen. And I mean that in the kindest, most sincere way possible. We have a two-game early slate and then a two-game “main” slate. In all honesty, this is a day you probably should just take off. Go outside. Get some sunshine. Go watch a movie or spend time with your kids. Heck, go read a book (haha just kidding, that’s a crazy idea). But if you’ve read this far, I suppose there’s no stopping you and you’re going to play this slate. Alright, let’s work together and see if we can make some money today versus other degens. Let’s do a quick recap on the news and notes for this slate:

    I’m good with him as a punt play but don’t think he’s a must play. Warren out makes me think Booker will see even more usage on offense now.
