NBA Lineup Optimizer Advice

Once you’ve logged into your account the process kicks off by selecting three key options. First, pick your desired DFS slate between DraftKings Main and FanDuel Main.

Next, choose your ownership setting. I usually opt for contrarian lineups because I enjoy playing GPPs, but you can also select from all lineups, chalky lineups or balanced lineups.

Lastly, you have the option to lock in a player based on optimal percentage, projection or boom percentage — I usually like to see the boom percentage, but you can easily toggle between the three options. You can also skip this step if you’d like.

Today, I selected DraftKings Main, contrarian and skip. I’m going with contrarian today not only because I play GPPs but also because it’s a smaller slate. The boom percentage really likes the Lakers today with LeBron James and Anthony Davis both ruled out. Austin Reaves, Christian Wood, and D’Angelo Russell are the top three boom percentage options, so keep an eye on lineups with them in it. If you’re playing cash games like double-ups or three-mans, you could also select balanced or chalky for better projected lineups. You can and will get some of the same players in each ownership setting but as long as you adjust the uniqueness based on the size and type of contest you’re playing, it’s all good.

After discarding a few I didn’t like I saved 20 lineups. The highest exposures I ended with were 90% Wood, 70% Reaves and 65% of Jalen Brunson at $9,600. The Knicks continue to play without Julius Randle and with no Joel Embiid, James or Davis, Brunson is a top pay-up option today. If you don’t have the time to research, you will not likely play a role player like Taurean Prince, who appears in 30% of my 20 lineups. Stokastic projections do all that research for you and import that data right in to the Lineup Generator.

Here’s a sample of a lineup that resulted from the 20 selections. This lineup projects for 281.49 points and includes Reaves, Wood, and Brunson. It also includes Rui Hachimura and Jared Vanderbilt as there is a ton of usage available for the Lakers with LeBron and AD both out tonight. The lineup gets unique with a 7.6%-owned Kelly Oubre Jr. and a 17.3%-owned John Collins from Utah. It uses $49,900 in salary and has a good combination of balance and uniqueness. I like this lineup for single-entry tournaments with over 1,000 entries and large-field GPPs.

If you take a look at the image of the lineup you see below there are two bars showing the projection and ownership levels of this lineup. The green marker moves for each lineup you view making it super easy to determine if you want to save or discard it.

It’s important to note these exposures are based completely off my settings. As a reminder, you can change between lineup builds and save lineups along the way. In total, I had 20 lineups saved in less than five minutes. That’s what makes this such a great NBA DFS tool for newer players and players who don’t have enough time to research +EV plays before lock.

Selecting the chalky lineup option is also a great way to see the types of lineups your competition is playing on any given day. I use this tool daily even if I’m not exporting the lineups. It’s a great way to get an overall view on the slate having projections and ownership in the same place.

We are waiting on a lot of news for tonight including the status of Tyrese Maxey and the entire Memphis Grizzlies roster. Lucky for us, Lineup Generator projections are updated automatically, so if Maxey sits and some decisions are made in Memphis, just run the generator after the news hits and you have a +EV lineup ready to smash the competition. It also makes it easy to export your lineups to a CSV file, so you can just point and click to upload them to DraftKings.
