Have you wondered what are the tools of the trade for daily fantasy basketball players? Wonder no more. Below is the list of the tools that I have found to be useful. Best of all, every one of the tools listed here is free.
Daily fantasy basketball is all about opportunities to get points. In general, the faster a team plays, the more possession it will have during a game, which leads to more fantasy point opportunities. This site lists the pace of all NBA teams in the current season. The most useful columns are PACE, OFF EFF (Offense Efficiency), and DEF EFF (Defense Efficiency). PACE is the number of positions each team has on average over a game. Offense Efficiency is the number of points scored per 100 positions, and Defense Efficiency is the number of points given up per 100 positions.
When you are drafting your daily fantasy basketball team, you’ll want to target players on teams that has a high PACE number and good offense efficiency, and is playing a team with a bad defense efficiency.
