NBA DFS Tools & Data 2022-23
NBA DFS Projections (Premium)
Our NBA DFS fantasy point projections break down every element of a player’s projected performance and synthesizes thousands of data points into one easy-to-use fantasy-point projection for each player that can be used as a reference for hand-building lineups or plugged into an optimizer to create hundreds of lineups within seconds. The player’s projections page also provides underlying data, including each player’s expected minutes played, usage rate and breakdowns for each statistical scoring category (points, rebounds, assists etc.). We also have NBA DFS projections for showdown / single game contests on DraftKings & FanDuel.
NBA Ownership Projections (Premium)
As the competition becomes increasingly sophisticated, it’s not only important to know who the best plays are, but also who the best players are that no one else talking about. Ownership projections provide you insight into where the “field” (other players) will land and how you can pivot away from over-owned and target under-owned players to give yourself the competitive advantage you need to take down large GPPs.
Stokastic’s NBA Rankings (Express/Premium)
The world’s best DFS player releases his letter grade rankings for each and every fantasy-relevant player on the day’s slates. Perfect for hand-building lineups or comparing to your own projections to test for accuracy, these grades are also featured in our Lineup Builder.
Ownership Rankings (Express/Premium)
Stokastic’s Ownership Rankings let you know how popular a player is compared to the other players at their position by ranking all players by ownership projection.
NBA Lineup Builder (Express/Premium)
The Lineup Builder is the perfect tool for hand-building lineups. Equipped with Stokastic’s proprietary rankings and ownership projections, as well as Vegas implied totals, matchups and lineup information, this tool aggregates all the information you need to build your best lineup onto a single page. Lineups you build on this page will receive both a GPA based on Stokastic’s rankings and a contrarian percentile ranking for evaluating whether your GPP lineups are too chalky.
The NBA Boom Bust Tool (Premium)
In all DFS sports, being able to compare the strength of a player each day versus their popularity is key to success. In NBA, correlations between players are less valuable, so the strength of each play can be considered individually. For each player, Stokastic’s calculates the standard deviation based on a variety of factors and use that to calculate the ceiling (75th-percentile performance) the floor (25th-percentile performance) and the probability that they will bust (not meeting value) or boom (value plus 10 points). Combining these metrics, you will be able to gain an edge on everyone by identifying under-owned or over-owned players.
The Stokastic Big Board (Premium)
Everyone wants to know who the best plays on a slate are because they are going to be both the most likely to succeed and the most popular. Stokastic’s Big Board is his ranking of each player on a slate, taking into account fantasy points and value. If you roster several players with a high ranking, plus a few sleepers, and stack your lineups, you should be in a good spot.
The Optimal Lineup Percentage Tool (Premium)
The optimal lineup percentage is the newest addition to the NBA Boom/Bust Tool. It calculates the probability that each player will be in the perfect lineup, which is a great metric to compare with ownership to see who’s going over- and under-owned.
