DK Pro ‘CSURam88’ discusses some of the intangibles that factor into daily fantasy basketball lineup building. Intangibles for DFS NBA range from home/road splits to player motivation going against their former teams.
1) Home/Road Splits – For a plethora of reasons, certain players do better at home or on the road. Pete discusses how you can take advantage of these splits.
2) Energy and Rest – Back to backs are dangerous, and teams playing in stretches of 3 or 4 games in 5 nights can be riskier than teams that are well-rested.
3) Traveling Time – Teams making the trip from the West Coast to the East Coast can have a bit of jet-lag, which might lead to a lackluster performance on the court.
4) Narrative Street – Basketball, maybe more so than any other sport, is a motivation-driven sport. Narratives such as birthdays or playing against former teams can provide guys with the extra juice needed to rack up fantasy points.
