Daily Fantasy Basketball Matchup Heat Chart for 1/8/16

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook aren't cheap daily fantasy basketball options, but their Oklahoma City Thunder are in a prime spot against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Narrowing down which games to target in daily fantasy basketball is no small task. After all, when you have to consider things such as pace, opponent, days of rest, and numerous other pieces of information, the process can get a bit overwhelming.

The intent of numberFire's matchup heat charts is to make that process a bit more smooth.

Each day here on numberFire, we'll be posting a heat chart up that shows all of this information -- and more -- for the day's NBA DFS slate. This way, you can find all of the info you'd be looking up anyway all in one spot.

The reason we call this a heat chart as opposed to a cheat sheet is that you'll still need to implement your own strategies while filling out your lineups. It won't tell you which players to use from each game, as each of your thought processes will differ here, but it can help you know which teams are ripe for the picking.
