NBA Daily Fantasy Player Research Dashboard

By: Bryan Povlinski on March 14, 2015

As I use the NBA Projection Tool to build my own lineups I often find that I’d like to drill down into specific players and see all of the stats that factor into the final projection. If I’m using the Last 10 Games as part of my base projection I’d like to be able to see what happened in that player’s last 10 games. Did he have one big game that pulled the average up but the rest of the games were mediocre? I’d also like to see recent stats on other opponents against the same position as that player… Read More »

How to Generate Multiple Lineups with the NBA Projection Tool

By: Bryan Povlinski on March 10, 2015

Previously, the NBA Projection Tool could only produce what it considered to be the “best” lineup for a given day. You could always make changes to certain players or tweak the projections and run it again for a new lineup, but you could only get 1 lineup each time you ran it. With a new update to the Solver spreadsheet – you can now generate as many lineups (time permitting) as you’d like. You’ll see the new file on the login page so if you’re already a subscriber be sure to grab it or sign up today if you’re interested in… Read More »

NBA Daily Projection Accuracy – Backtesting Tool

By: Bryan Povlinski on January 11, 2015

One of the biggest questions of any projection system is “how accurate have they been?” In daily fantasy sports, that question often turns into “how many contests, or how much money has been won using these projections?” Both of these questions are difficult to answer and I would contend that the second question about how many contests have been won is a poor way to measure a projection system. There are so many different types of contests that you’re introducing an entirely new level of variability. Even the very best projection system is going to struggle to win GPP’s because only… Read More »

Daily Fantasy Basketball Analytics – Coming Soon

By: Bryan Povlinski on October 29, 2013

Stay tuned for an all-new version of the Fanduel Analytics system that were posted daily last season. There won’t be projections for the first couple of games because there’s nothing to evaluate beyond last year’s data, but once we have a couple games in the books we’ll have everything up and running. I plan to keep a historical record of projected and actual points throughout the entire season that you’ll be able to slice and dice any way you’d like. If you have any requests for new stats that you’d like to see this year include them in the comments… Read More »
