DraftStreet of Dreams
Even if you have never played in a daily fantasy league, try the Sheridan Hoops Freeroll on Friday. There’s no entry fee and $300 in guaranteed prize money. Pick an 8-man team within the $100,000 salary cap and you could win $100 cash, no strings attached.
On Saturday, there will be a different kind of challenge, for experienced players. It’s the “Beat Sheridan” Challenge, with a very limited number of teams, a $22 entry fee and much larger prizes. Finish ahead of Chris Sheridan and you win an extra five bucks, not to mention bragging rights. More details and a link to enter that one will be available on Friday.

As always, the chart makes five suggestions in the top, bottom and middle price ranges. With 11 NBA games, there are millions of possible 8-man lineups and dozens of other players worth using. You can make unlimited changes until the 7:00 EST deadline, but if there’s no breaking news or changes of heart, here’s my lineup:
F1 Kevin Durant (OKC-F) $22,897
F2 Maurice Harkless (ORL-F) $7,119
G1 Kyrie Irving (CLE-G) $16,649
G2 Ricky Rubio (MIN-G) $15,579
C1 Nikola Pekovic (MIN-C) $14,741
C2 Larry Sanders (MIL-C) $13,150
U1 Jerryd Bayless (MEM-G) $6,301
U2 Quincy Pondexter (MEM-G) $3,297
This is a classic Stars-and-Scrubs approach, with Durant and four others priced above $13,000, filling in with three guys who I hope will outproduce their bargain salaries.
