With NBA training camps open, best ball draft season rolls on. The ADP on DraftKings has been shifting dramatically over the last few weeks since drafts opened.

 

DraftKings has really stepped up their best ball offerings for the upcoming season. There are three main tournaments, along with some smaller sit-and-go type leagues at various price levels. The “main” GPP is the 300k “Shootaround,” which will pay out $100k to the winning team. They’ve also got the “Spin Move” ($44 entry) and “Alley Oop” ($555 entry), which will pay out $10k and $20k, respectively, to the top team when all is said and done. I’ll talk more about DraftKings Best Ball strategies and what I’m seeing in drafts in my weekly “Best Ball Diary” articles before the season tips off. 

Below are my top-200 DraftKings NBA best ball rankings. Keep in mind that DraftKings uses three positions, guards, forwards and centers. Each week of the regular season and each playoff round, your two top scoring guards, wings and utility spots will count compared to just one center.
