XN Sports is introducing a new daily fantasy site called Victiv, which has one of the best features in all of daily fantasy, in addition to a sleek design, and a few ways to play daily fantasy basketball.
Victiv has what is called a substitution position, which you can learn more about on the site. Essentially, it’s one extra position for under $5,000 (does not affect your salary cap) where you can select a bench player. This player will come in handy, as it replaces anyone in your lineup that scores less than the substitute. Think of it as a free mulligan, and an option to take a risk on a player.
For example, if you like a specific player one night but he is a game-time decision, put him into your lineups. The substitute can be his backup, or another player that you think could have an excellent night, and if your player does not play, no worries. In addition, this adds another level of strategy. On Victiv, the minimum price for a player is a lot lower than on other sites. You can afford to take risks with these cheap players, because if this player does not have an excellent game, your substitute can pick up the slack. Be sure to take advantage of this, and try Victiv today.
After you have signed up, be sure to take on Victron. This is Victiv’s computer, and if you beat it, you can win cash prizes. This is yet another way to play daily fantasy basketball.
On Victiv, you are given $50,000 in cap space to play a lineup composed of two guards, three forwards, a center, and two flex positions. As aforementioned, the substitute does not count against your cap. The scoring is as follows (taken directly from Victiv’s website:
– Point +1
– Rebound +1.25
– Assist +1.25
– Steal +2
– Block +2
– Turnover -0.5

Second, take a look at XN Sports’ suggested plays and lineup for Victiv for tonight’s slate:
Gary Neal $2,000
On Victiv, the minimum salary is $2,000, so it is essential to weed out those who will be of value at the minimum price. This gives you money to spend on stars, like Anthony Davis and Nikola Vucevic. Neal is the value play at guard tonight, if he is active. Neal is probable and it is likely that he will play, but keep an eye on his status leading up to tip-off. With the Hornets hurting for scoring, Neal’s return will be welcomed. Neal has scored double-digit points in six of the nine full games he has played this season, including three of his last four leading up to the game where he was injured. Neal and the Hornets will face the Orlando Magic tonight, who rank in the bottom half of nearly every statistical category on defense, making Neal a suggested play tonight at the minimum.
Nikola Mirotic $2,000
This play is based on Pau Gasol‘s health. If Gasol cannot play tonight, Mirotic may be the most valuable player on Victiv tonight. At the price minimum, Mirotic already carries low risk, but with Gasol out he is high-reward as well. In the two games with Gasol out, Mirotic has 19 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 36 minutes of work. If Mirotic can stay out of foul trouble (nine in those 36 minutes) he will likely play over 20 minutes, giving him ample time to accrue fantasy points for the minimum price on Victiv.
Nikola Vucevic $9,300
Vucevic is the most expensive center on Victiv tonight, but is worth every dollar. So far this season, Vucevic is averaging 19 points and 12 rebounds per game to go along with 2.6 assists and a block and steal per game. That comes out to an average of over 40 fantasy points per night. Tonight, the Magic take on the Charlotte Hornets who have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to centers this season. In addition, the Hornets are in the bottom third in defensive rebounding, giving Vucevic a great matchup to be the most productive center on Victiv. Since Victor Oladipo has returned to the starting lineup, Vucevic is averaging just under 20 points and 13 rebounds per contest, giving him another edge to reach value on Victiv tonight.
