The hardest thing to account for when modeling basketball is the pace of the game. A relatively new concept in the grand scheme of things, pace and efficiency revolutionized the world of basketball statistics. Once we got a handle on it, our DraftKings NBA Projections came together.
Where most people are looking backwards for key indicators in the National Basketball Association, we’ve built our model to look forward. We gauge the pace, and then predict the minutes that each player will be on the court. From there everything can come together. Our predictions cover three pointers, field goals, free throws, assists, rebounds, blocks and steals. Everything you’ll need to build an optimal lineup for both cash games and GPP’s.
For cash game strategy, stick to our player rankings for total fantasy points. These are the players with a high floor, the ones that will build your bankroll by helping you finish in the Top 50%. For GPP games, you’ll want players with a high ceiling and low ownership. Sort the value plays in descending order and fill at least half of your lineup with these sleepers. You’ll be left with plenty of available money left over. Resist the urge to put it into play, you’ll need a unique lineup to take home the top prize.
