NBA DFS Strategy: Everything You Need To Build Winning DraftKings + FanDuel Lineups

The NBA season is in full swing, and just like athletes need to sharpen their skills, so, too, do daily fantasy basketball players. Luckily, Stokastic’s very own Adam “ShipMyMoney” Scherer has created the ultimate guide breaking down how to become a winning NBA DFS player. Adam’s NBA DFS strategy articles will dive into the process of using player projections, ownership projections, lineup construction, boom/bust potential, and choosing the right type of contests for your games on DraftKings and FanDuel.

Nathan Joyce
I'm a wannabe athlete whose athletic career ended after a long tenure riding the bench through JV baseball. The fantasy sports and sports betting degen side of me blossomed at age 12 when I found fantasy baseball and football, and led to a 12-year submergence into the poker scene -- I started playing "secret" cash games in my parents' basements by age 14. Luckily, I've finally found what I love to do -- write about "fake sports," which my girlfriend refers to it as, though it only took me until age 30. If you decide you like the words I write and follow me on Twitter (@nd_joyce), I apologize in advance for the copious amounts of dog photos you will see.
