NBA DFS Preseason Primer: Wednesday, October 16th

Hello Grinders. We have a solid five-game slate on tap (for some reason DraftKings left off the Pistons/Hornets game and made it a Showdown game). As always, I’ll post updates here at the top of the article and will continue pinning important news in the Discord channel. Let’s dive in.

Pistons @ Hornets


This game is on the FanDuel main slate but not on the DraftKings main slate, so keep that in mind.

The Pistons are playing the back-end of a back-to-back and this is their final preseason game. Per this article, Blake Griffin missed yesterday and didn’t even travel with the team, so I’m assuming he’s out here. Andre Drummond was also rested last night while Markieff Morris was held out with an illness, so I’m treating Morris as questionable and assuming Drummond returns here for the finale.
