Jrue Holiday has been playing well in the month of November and is a solid building block for your lineup.

If you're new to daily fantasy basketball -- maybe you started your DFS journey during the MLB or NFL seasons, or maybe basketball is your sport and this will be your first year giving it a shot -- you're in for a treat. The NBA scene changes hugely on a week-to-week, day-to-day, and -- depending on injury news -- even a minute-to-minute basis, making every slate a unique one that requires an ever-changing approach.

With so much changing so quickly, we're here with plenty of tools to help you out. We have daily projections, a matchup heat map, a lineup optimizer, and a ton of other great resources to help give you an edge.

We'll also be coming at you with this primer every day, breaking down a few of the day's top plays at each price point.

Let's take a look at who you should target on today's main slate, which starts at 7:30 p.m. EST.

Best of the Best

Jrue Holiday ($8,700): It's been a fantastic season for Jrue and anybody using him in DFS. He's been absolutely dependable night in and night out. In the month of November, Holiday has scored more than 40.8 FanDuel points in 11 out of 12 contests. Just to make things even better, he's scored in the 50's on FanDuel in 3 of those 11 occasions. He has a massive floor, a high ceiling, and the probability of him sinking your lineup is low. Over the last two games, he's fired off 49 field goal attempts and has had single-game usage rates of 30.1% and 32.9%. He's been good with or without Anthony Davis on the court, and he’s one of the top plays of the Saturday main slate.
