Victiv Daily Fantasy Basketball: Values and Lineup – December 27

Top Victiv NBA value plays and optimized lineup for December 27.

Tony Allen

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

How can we beat Victron, other players and win real money? First, sign up for Victiv here.

Second, take a look at XN Sports’ suggested plays and lineup for Victiv for tonight’s slate:

Tonight’s slate is full with game-time decisions, so stay aware before tip-off.

Value Plays

Guard

No cheap values at guard for tonight’s slate. Be prepared to spend on guys like Dwyane Wade ($9,200) and Jimmy Butler ($9,000).

Forward

Tony Allen $4,100

Allen returned from an eye injury in the Grizzlies’ last game, and was able to post just under 30 fantasy points, despite fouling out. With his price at just $4,100, value can be reached with 24.4 fantasy points. Allen is averaging just under 19 fantasy points per game on Victiv, and he faces the Heat tonight, who are right in the middle of the pack in terms of allowing fantasy points to opposing small forwards. What makes Allen an attractive play today is his defense and ability to rebound, as the Heat are last in the NBA in rebounding and turn the ball over over 14 times per game. At Allen’s price, he can add a few steals and a few rebounds and he will reach value without having to score many points.

Center

Cole Aldrich $4,100

Aldrich is a play today because of the lack of big men for the Knicks. Quincy Acy is suspended, Amar’e Stoudemire is out with a sore knee, and Samuel Dalembert plays just 16 minutes per game. Of late, Aldrich has been the best Knicks big man, averaging 11 points, five rebounds, two assists, and a block per game over his last five contests. Without Stoudemire and Acy on the floor, Aldrich has a usage rate of 26.4, which is incredible for a big man. Considering he is due for more minutes tonight, and his usage rate is second on the Knicks in their current situation, his price of $4,100 makes him a value play at center on Victiv.
