NBA DFS Late Swap Strategy and Advice: How to Use Stokastic Late Swap Tool

Step 1 – Import site specific Contest File .csv

After selecting your site and slate information, upload your most recent .csv entry file to begin the late swap experience. You can choose to import custom projections as well here or skip this step and use Stokastic’s projections as the default. If custom projections are uploaded, they will be used for the late swap simulation, and the generating swappable lineup combinations steps below. Custom projections will not be used for generating a new contest pool.

Step 2 – Create and Customize an Updated Contest Pool

As late news breaks in the NBA, it is important to account for how the field will update their lineups throughout the slate. Powered by up-to-the-minute player projection data, our built-in contest generator will create an updated contest pool for you. Easily boost or dock individual player pool ownerships using our ownership boost arrows. These adjustments can be used to create a pool of lineups that will best match the field of lineups you expect to encounter in your DFS contest. Once set, this updated lineup pool will be used to evaluate your swappable lineup combinations against.

Step 3 – Create Swappable Lineups and Simulate

After customizing your contest pool, hit the “Create Swappable Lineups” button in the bottom righthand corner to kick off the next steps in the late swap process. In this step, we take your original lineups that you uploaded in step 1 and create up to 10 swappable lineup combinations for each one of the original lineups in your file. These lineups are created using either the up-to-the-minute Stokastic projections, or if selected, the custom projections that were uploaded in step 1.

Once the swappable lineups are created, we simulate each of the created combinations 40,000 times one by one against the custom contest pool that was generated or provided in step 2. This robust simulation process will provide critical, in-depth lineup analysis for your late swap options.

Step 4 – Swap Lineups and Export Results

Looking for some of the best NBA DFS late swap advice, strategy and more? Look no more, as we're going to help...

After creating your swappable lineups and simulating them against your custom pool, you’ll be presented with all of your late-swap options on the final screen. Expand each individual lineup to view how all of your swappable lineup combinations performed in your custom simulation. The lineups will be automatically sorted by lineup ROI %, which is the gold standard metric within our simulation technology that essentially ranks lineups from best to worst.

Use the quick favorite at the top right to automatically select the top swappable lineups by sim ROI, or manually select your favorite options one lineup at a time. When ready, export your newly selected lineups and import them directly to your selected site.

The Stokastic NBA Late Swap tool will provide users with a tangible edge over the competition. By continually optimizing your lineups with the latest news and projections, you’ll be putting your lineups in the best possible position to succeed.
