NBA DFS Lineup Study 3/22/2022
Welcome to today’s NBA DFS Lineup Study review article. In this article, we’re going to take a look at the winning lineups from the popular 20 max and 150 max tournaments on Draftkings.
The purpose of this review will be to identify roster construction trends that will help us make better lineup decisions as we construct our own lineups each day.
Make sure you’re in our Free Discord chat as myself and hundreds of our members discuss these strategies daily, also, if you’re not doing so already, make sure you’re following all of the Rise or Fall social media accounts so you don’t miss any breaking news.
I’ll be using Fantasy Cruncher to help me review each of these lineups. All of our Rise or Fall members save $20 per month on their Fantasy Cruncher subscription, so, if you’re not signed up yet, what are you waiting for?

For the lineup study, we are looking at the winners of the $15 150 max and the $4 20 max on Draftkings only. For like sized slates today, I compared the 5 slates I have tracked in the 5-9 game range as last night was a 9 game slate.
Today’s thought is about the end of the NBA season. We are starting to see more and more volatility in NBA DFS and this is something that happens this time every year. This is the time of year when teams start to rest their players so they can stay fresh for the playoffs. This is also the time of year when teams who are out of the playoffs start using different rotations of players to see how some of these players who don’t normally see minutes can do when they get playing time. When you are making your lineups, make sure you are watching for starting lineups to be released and injury reports to get updated throughout the day. Staying on top of the news this time of year can be the difference between a winning night and a losing night.
Let’s get to the stats.
Last night, the 2 winning lineups combined to use 12 players.
Rating – 12 out of 12 players had a rating over 50. Total over 13 slates is 85.62%. Total over 6 like sized slates is 86.57%. Rating – 12 out of 12 players had a rating over 60. Total over 13 slates is 78.08%. Total over 6 like sized slates is 77.61%.
