I’ve had a quite a few questions about the NBA Grind Down video this year. Unfortunately, I no longer make my own projections. I am now part of the RotoGrinders projections (which have been amazing so far) team, so the video can’t be the same as last season. When you combine that with the three-sport overlap, we decided to hold off on doing the video until after the regular season for football ends. The good news is that we haven’t nailed down a final plan for the video. The ideas we’ve floated around are going through the projections an hour before lock (similar to the model video last year) or doing a lineup review each morning from the previous slate where I explain how I ended up on each play. Let me know which one you would prefer or if you have something else that you’d like to see in the daily video.
As far as last night’s slate, it was a rough one for yours truly. I locked in Terry Rozier, which basically tanked my main lineup right from the start. I did get to spend the night in the emergency room with a very sick son though, so that was fun. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a weekend. Let’s dive into tonight’s 11-game slate!
