We have a nine-game NBA DFS main slate on Tuesday, December 26th, on DraftKings and FanDuel. We don't have as much star power as the Christmas Day slate tonight, but elite plays everywhere as Anthony Edwards, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and Tyrese Haliburton are taking the floor. There are a lot of players questionable and a lot of injury designations we need to know about before committing to a lot of value tonight. 

NBA DFS Tools to dominate tonight's NBA DFS slate!

Make sure to check out today's NBA DFS projections and NBA DFS ownership projections before finalizing your lineups today. We also have the NBA Consistency Report to help identify players that have exceeded value based on their current price tag this season and of course our NBA DFS Lineup Generator!
