How to Select and Optimize a DFS Basketball Lineup
When playing DFS NBA apps, the task at hand is to put together the best possible lineup while staying under the salary cap. In a perfect world, you’ll hit the right notes and wind up with a high-scoring lineup.
The actual process of selecting a lineup on FanDuel and DraftKings is smooth and efficient. The two major operators spare no expense on the tech front, and the end result is an interface that’s very user-friendly.
Additionally, there are a number of different research components built right it. For example, you’ll be able to see the average fantasy points that each player scores, as well as how their opponents do at defending their position.
This information can be very helpful in building out lineups. Players who average a lot of fantasy points in general and who also happen to have a great matchup are ones who belong on your short list.
That said, optimizing a lineup isn’t as simple as that. For some users, the answer is to dive down the rabbit hole of research in a quest to crack the night’s equation. Naturally, other users are more time-pressed. Instead, they rely on some trusted resources that do the heavy lifting on research and then make their lineup choices based off of that.
For another approach, you can take those two concepts and mesh them together. If there are certain pieces of intel that you have time to gather and feel strongly about, go right ahead and do so. From there, combine what you have learned with the assistance of a trusted resource or two to get an even greater handle on the day’s games.
In the end, you should be walking away with a short list of plays at each position to make your choices from and to build out your lineups. Additionally, there are lineup optimizing sites and apps out there.
Some of them are free, while others are of the paid variety. There are users who prefer to go this route and it’s certainly an option to consider, just be aware that there will be plenty of other users out there who are using the exact same optimizers and will wind up with the same exact lineup as a result.
