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:
Jason Terry, Houston Rockets $5,500
The Rockets will be without their top two point guards, so Terry and James Harden will play close to 40 minutes each. Terry will be a play all across the industry, and on Victiv he is a value at $5,500. The Rockets face the Timberwolves tonight, who are in the bottom five in allowing fantasy points to opposing guards. In addition, Minnesota is last in the NBA in defending the three, and Terry has made seven treys in the last two games. At his price anything over 25 fantasy points is good value, and Terry has shredded that mark in the last two contests.
Nerlens Noel, Philadelphia 76ers $3,900
Noel has a tough matchup against tonight, as Oklahoma City has allowed the eighth-least amount of fantasy points to power forwards this season. But, his price is too good to pass up. At under $4,000 any production over 20 fantasy points is great value, and Noel has gone under that plateau just a few times this season. Noel plays 30 minutes or more on most nights, and will see his fair share of rebounds and looks on the offense side of the floor. Despite the matchup, his price is too good to pass up.
Jordan Hill, Los Angeles Lakers $7,200
The Lakers’ bigs will be a big target tonight, as the Celtics are among the worst defensive teams in the NBA and have allowed an incredible amount of fantasy points to opposing power forwards and centers combined. Hill will be the beneficiary of this, despite Boozer playing the power forward position. Hill leads the Lakers in rebounding, and can shoot the ball from mid-range in addition to his post-game. This gives him an edge against the Celtics, as he is essentially a power forward in the Lakers’ offense as the Celtics have given up just under 60 fantasy points to opposing power forwards this season. Hill has 10 double-doubles in 19 games this season, and will look to make it 11 against a porous Celtics team tonight. At his price, 35 fantasy points or more will allow him to reach value.
