FAQ

We are trying to save you time by providing a deep NBA DFS research on a simple page. Here’s how to get the most out of the NBA DFS cheatsheet:

Target Games

Take a look at the game-previews table, which includes various team situations and player matchups. Consider taking the estimated game pace and Vegas over/under point totals into account, these might also be an indicator of DFS points scored/allowed as well.

Research Players

To build your ideal DFS lineup, use NBA DFS cheatsheet for DraftKings or FanDuel. Deep dive into players’ numbers with sorting by the team, game-time, and position. Apply custom filters to the salaries, minutes, usage rates and FPTS where you determine a given range.

Optimize Lineup

Over the summer, we have teamed up with data-analytics leaders and developed an independent NBA DFS lineup optimizer. DFSkey is now in open-beta which means you can start optimizing your lineups for free. Feedbacks are welcomed!
