Scout continues to expand its Fantasy coverage this season with NBA DFS projections that will help you cash in on DraftKings and FanDuel. Don’t have time to do your own research? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered!
Several hours before lineups lock, we will provide the following information in our Premium forums:
ScoutScore is our "value" indicator. It reflects the total value for a player based on their salary, (Projected FP * 1,000 / Salary) plus a minor tweak for projected minutes.
Projected points is how many points they should score on an average outing based on the current indicators, matchup vs. the position and injuries to the lineup.
$ / Point is also a "value” indicator. It looks at how much money you have to spend for a fantasy point, therefore the lower the number, the better.
Points / minute is a new KPI (key performance indicator). If there's a late breaking injury, just multiply the Points / Minute by the expected minutes to get a decent feel for his projection.
