However, keep in mind that these projections and value ratings are just a starting point and should be used in conjunction with your own research and analysis.

A general tip for NBA DFS is to pay attention to a player’s usage rate and minutes played. Usage rate measures how often a player is involved in their team’s offensive plays while on the floor, and is a good indicator of how many fantasy points they can score. Minutes played, on the other hand, determine how long a player will be on the floor and therefore how many opportunities they will have to score fantasy points. Players with high usage rates and minutes played are more likely to score more fantasy points and provide better returns on their salary.
