Opening night of the NBA season did not disappoint for fantasy basketball managers. We saw the likes of Ja Morant, Trae Young, Nikola Jokic and Terry Rozier put up crazy numbers on the first night. Now, the NBA and its fans gear up for a full slate of games on Christmas Day and here at Rotoworld, we want to provide you with the information you need to go against the competition.

This past week, we've given extra insight on these tools than normal by highlighting content found in our EDGE+ RotoEDGE+ Pro and EDGE+ Max packages. This is all an effort to continue our 12 Days of Roto promotion, which is working in conjunction with our 2020 Holiday Sale and offers a unique look at a different tool or feature each day. In addition, you can take advantage of the sale by using promo code HOLIDAY20 to instantly save 20% off on any and all tiers or packages.

Today we'll look at the NBA DFS Tools, which are jammed packed with content targeted at providing the knowledge you need to create daily lineup and roster decisions for a range of different leagues — from projections, rankings, past results, and optimal lineups — we've never been more proud of what we have to offer. 

Recently, we went to the gridiron to give you an inside look at our CFB Edge Finder in our Betting Tools. Now, we're back on the hardwood and in this NBA DFS Tools preview, we'll be taking a look at the Optimal Lineup for the entire Christmas Day slate.
