NBA DFS Ownership – Main Slate

Initial ownership percentages are posted daily by 1:00 p.m. EST and are updated every two hours throughout the day with a final update occurring 30 minutes before lock. Note that last-minute injury reports will impact not only the injured players’ or their replacements’ ownership, but can affect overall roster construction and therefore, every other player on the slate. These ownership projections are specifically designed for the largest contest of the day.

Note: All ownership projections ran after lock represent what our projection would have been if the current news was known at lock. It does not factor in actual ownership for players locked or the inability to swap players that are already locked. As such it is likely the ownership shown is higher than it actually will be if positive news happened for the player and vice versa.

NBA DFS Main Slate Ownership Tools & Data

  1. NBA DFS Projections (Premium): Dive into our NBA DFS fantasy point projections that meticulously deconstruct every aspect of a player’s anticipated performance. These projections amalgamate a wealth of data into user-friendly fantasy-point predictions, serving as invaluable references for manual lineup crafting or seamless integration into lineup optimizers. Additionally, the player’s projections page delivers comprehensive underlying data, such as expected minutes played, usage rates, and statistical breakdowns (points, rebounds, assists, etc.). We also offer specialized NBA DFS projections tailored for showdown/single-game contests on DraftKings and FanDuel.
  2. NBA Ownership Projections (Premium): In the increasingly competitive DFS landscape, it’s essential to identify not only the top picks but also the hidden gems. Ownership projections grant you a sneak peek into the expected distribution of player ownership percentages. This knowledge empowers you to pivot away from highly-owned players and target those who may be overlooked, providing you with a crucial edge in conquering large GPPs.
  3. NBA Rankings (Express): Renowned DFS expert Alex Baker, aka Stokastic, presents his letter-grade rankings for every player with fantasy relevance on the day’s slates. Perfect for manual lineup construction, these rankings are also valuable for benchmarking against your own projections to ensure their accuracy.
  4. NBA Ownership Rankings (Express – Premium): Stokastic’s Ownership Rankings offer a comprehensive comparison of a player’s popularity relative to their peers at the same position, ranking all players based on ownership projections.
  5. NBA Lineup Generator (Premium): Our Lineup Builder is the ultimate tool for crafting lineups manually. It features Stokastic’s exclusive rankings and ownership projections, along with critical data like Vegas-implied totals, matchups, and lineup information, all consolidated on a single, user-friendly page. Lineups created using this tool are evaluated with a GPA based on Stokastic’s rankings and assigned a contrarian percentile ranking to gauge their uniqueness and suitability for GPPs.
  6. NBA Boom Bust Tool (Premium): In DFS, evaluating a player’s daily strength in relation to their popularity is a strategic advantage. Stokastic’s NBA Boom Bust Tool breaks down individual player performance, calculating their ceiling (75th-percentile performance), floor (25th-percentile performance), and the likelihood of underperformance (bust) or exceeding value (boom). By integrating these metrics, you can gain an edge by identifying under-owned or over-owned players.
  7. NBA Big Board (Premium): Discover the top players on a given slate—those most likely to excel and garner attention. Stokastic’s Big Board assigns rankings to every player on the slate, taking into account fantasy points and value. By building lineups with several high-ranking players and strategically including sleeper picks, you’ll position yourself for success.
  8. NBA DFS Cheatsheet for DraftKings + FanDuel (FREE): This cheatsheet, based on our expected player exposure for the night’s slate, showcases the top 15 players featured in Stokastic’s own lineups.
