For those who are new to DraftKings Tiers, Tiers is a simpler version of NBA DFS where you have to account for less players and less news. There is no salary in tiers as each tier has a select group of players, you must pick the player who you think scores the most. While ownership is important in tiers, it is a format where eating chalk in GPP’s is ok in most tiers. Being different in simply one tier is typically enough to differentiate yourself from the field. 

In this breakdown, I will list the players in each tier according to how I rank them and provide a description of those rankings. As I always say, hopefully we see more tiers than tears this upcoming season.

Tier 1

Nikola Jokic, James Harden, Joel Embiid, LeBron...
