NBA DFS Lineups Advice: April 8th

Last Day of the NBA Daily Plug will be 4/8!! 

The Daily Plug is our daily NBA DFS lineups advice write-up that highlights the top overall plays for the slate. The Plug then provides actionable information for the main slate by making specific recommendations on how much of your bankroll to allocate and exactly which types of contests to play -- all depending on the type of player you are. Consider the Plug an in-depth roadmap for the main slate. Let’s get to it! - @bruskiry_dfs, @Dfsjayhawk and @tboyle24_DFS 

Note that the Plug is only written for slates with 6+ games and is posted at least 2 hours before lock on game days. Want analysis for every player in tonight's games for your NBA DFS lineups? Check out the Occupy Model.

We know value is important in NBA DFS, so we have three columns in our Occupy Model -- DK Value, FD Value, and Y! Value -- to show how much value that player is on each site, as well as a dedicated injury report page. More nuanced advice for your NBA DFS lineups -- check it out:
