Daily Fantasy Basketball Perfect Lineup Salary Log for DraftKings NBA 2017-2018 Season

The contestant who has the perfect lineup will win 1st place every time, and while the perfect lineup is a moving target there are definitely some things under your control that you can do to create a perfect lineup. Smart usage of your salary is perhaps the greatest skill you can ever develop in the world of fantasy sports, so I have compiled this table so that you can see how your $50,000 salary can be used to draft a winning team. The quick takeaways from this table are:

  • Drafting two $9,000+ players rarely work,
  • Spending $9,000+ on a point guard works the best,
  • Most of your research should go towards finding players under $5,500 who are primed to score over 30 fantasy points because more perfect lineups contains at least three of these players,
  • Avoiding  $9,000+ players rarely works (for those of you who try to draft”balanced” rosters,
  • $9,000+ players supported by three or four players in the $5,500-$7,000 range works pretty well because it minimizes your punts,
  • Combining $9,000+ players with $7,000 – $9,000 player creates a lot of punts,
  • Fewer punts on your roster is a real time saver.
