Introducing the NBA DFS Fast Break

In prior seasons as part of our DFS package, we have provided Example Lineups based off playbook recommendations for each slate. The idea behind providing these lineups was not for you to plug and play but to give you an idea about the kind of lineup that you can create by using all of the content, tools and projections that have been produced throughout the day by our NBA DFS analysts. This season we are planning to change things up and we are putting the lineup construction more into your hands. But don’t worry, we have something new to help guide you in your builds and something, we believe, will help you be an even better DFS player in the long run.

Welcome to The Fast Break.

The idea around the Fast Break is to provide you with a set of core players at varying price points at each position. Yes, we have the Playbook and yes, in the Playbook we do an expansive slate overview of each position. But the Fast Break is going to give you our must-haves for your lineup construction. If, when building your lineups, you need to fit a mid-priced shooting guard, the Fast Break is giving you our core-play for that position. The Fast Break will also have a brief write-up regarding roster construction recommendations for the night, explaining such ideas as where maybe it's best to spend or a position where there is a lot of depth. The Fast Break, when used with the Playbook, Starting Five and Value Vault content, along with our excellent Lineup Generator, should not only make creating lineups much easier, but help you become a more successful NBA DFS player.

Lineup Generator

This is an absolute must when building your lineups this season. The Lineup Generator uses our player projections and tools for DraftKings, FanDuel and Yahoo to help you generate winning lineups. The Lineup Generator is incredibly customizable and allows you to customize the player pools, matchups and projections as you see fit including the "Playbook Only" option which allows you to generate lineups using ONLY the players from the NBA DFS Playbook that day. Every tool makes it easy for you to see your favorite sites and do the research to make you win. Lineup Generator
