The NBA season has been here, but today it is now December which means it's CHRISTMAS TIME! We have such an exciting season up ahead and plenty of opportunities to win some money! There are four key things I look for in a player to have the highest probability of being optimal!
These four statistics paired together are the best suitors to find a gem. Almost everyone I mention below hits on atleast 2 of these if not all of them! Hopefully this will help you be more successful while building lineups and give you a higher chance of winning the big bucks!
I would also like to note that I write these articles early in the day. It is always beneficial to check @FantasyLabsNBA for lineup changes. Those changes could have a direct effect on some of my "favorite plays" in the sense that if a cheap guy that was one of my favorites doesn't start, then they might no longer be a favorite play or even a play at all. Check out my Twitter @HeatingUpDFS for any updates on favorite play changes!

So with the sheer number of guys out today, it doesn't seem even remotely wise to have "favorite plays" because there are so many different options available in solid spots. To help you guys out, I am going to outline all the injury/COVID protocol players out or questionable tonight and who gets a bump with them out. It isn't going to exactly be any analysis, but it should help put into light who all is available and in a positive spot.
Russell Westbrook OUT - Rajon Rondo, Austin Reaves, Malik Monk (Q), Wayne Ellington
LaMelo Ball QUESTIONABLE - Ish Smith (Q), Terry Rozier, Cody Martin
Ja Morant OUT - Tyus Jones, Desmond Bane
Cole Anthony QUESTIONABLE - RJ Hampton, Mychal Molder, Gary Harris
De'Aaron Fox OUT - Davion Mitchell, Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield
