The rankings for fantasy points and value are derived directly from my own fantasy NBA projections. Roster players with solid value rankings and spend most if not all of your salary. I’m confident that lineups built using this method will be competitive in tournaments.
Our fantasy point projections breaks down every element of a player’s projected performance and synthesizes thousands of data points into one easy-to-use fantasy point projection for each player that can be used as a reference for hand-building lineups or plugged into an optimizer to create hundreds of lineups within seconds. Currently, we cover DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo and FantasyDraft.
Posted daily. As the competition becomes increasingly sophisticated, it’s not only important to know who the best plays are but also who the best players are that no one else is talking about. Ownership projections provide you insight into where the “field” (other players) will land and how you can pivot away from overowned and target under owned players and give you the competitive advantage you need to take down large GPPs.
In all DFS sports, being able to compare the strength of a player each day versus their popularity is key to success. In NBA, correlations between players are less valuable so the strength of each play can be considered individually. For each player, I calculate the standard deviation based on a variety of factors and use that to calculate the ceiling (75th-percentile performance) the floor (25th-percentile performance) and the probability that they will bust (not meeting value) or boom (value plus 10 points). Combining these metrics, you will be able to gain an edge on everyone by identifying underowned or overowned players.
