NBA DFS Preseason Primer: Tuesday, October 15th

Hello Grinders. It was a rough Monday on the DFS front. I was high on Nikola Jokic, who ended up committing three fouls in five minutes and then never got back on track. I was high on Jaren Jackson, who fouled out in 20 minutes and even got rejected at one point by Malik Monk. It’s a reminder that no matter how much energy and research I put into DFS, I cannot prepare for the fact that Jaren Jackson can’t keep his hands to himself.

The only thing I can do is dust myself off and move on to this next slate. Let’s see what we’re working with:

Celtics @ Cavaliers


This is the final preseason game for the Celtics and we have an extensive list of updates. Romeo Langford is out. Jayson Tatum is sick and out as he didn’t even travel with the team. Finally, there’s a tweet here saying “Brad Stevens said he will not play everyone tomorrow. Sounds like a number of the regulars could sit.”
