First advice. A game without emotions
If you are a fan of “Houston” or in a dispute “who is cooler, Kobe or LeBron” you are entirely for Bryant, then before you choose the team of the day, take control of your emotions. It’s like BDSM, of course, but otherwise you will not succeed in the game. Favorites, sentimental memories of the glorious past, family fan traditions – all this will not help you win the pot. Success comes if you build a team based on a cynical and critical calculation. Believe me, even if the leader of the sworn enemy destroys your favorites in the final match, but at the same time helps you to break the jackpot, the money from victory will cure your wounds in minutes.
Second advice. Use math in the NBA Fantasy
Before proceeding to the selection of the team, it is important to carefully read the rules for the calculation of points. Maximum points are brought to the “trainers” by players who perform triple-doubles, intercepting, blocking and combining different elements. Accordingly, sometimes it is even worth overpay buying these players. Calculate the value of each point, scored by a basketball player, based on spending on it. You can approximately calculate the average cost of the player based on its usefulness. Someone hopes to make a result as a result of playing expensive kids, and the rest to get tall players from the rotation, who in their NBA clubs are doing a lot of rough work. Others, on the contrary, believe in forwards and centers.
Third advice. Watch for injuries
Registration of teams on the site ends a few minutes before the first match of the day. This is enough to check through your Twitter account and a number of related resources your “peaks” for good health. This will convince you as a manager of the correctness of your choice, but it can also suggest an area where you can find “free” scores. For example, the information about the injury of Blake Griffin from the “Clippers” meant the transfer of more shots at the disposal of Chris Paul, JJ.Redic.
In addition, operational information about injuries allows you to understand the conjuncture of changes in the starting five, the rotation of clubs. This gives an insight into what is reasonable to emphasize in the NBA fantasy for money, correcting the draft.
Fourth advice. Keep track of the calendar
Perhaps someone will be surprised, but professional athletes (even in the NBA) are made of flesh and blood. That is why they grow old, experience discomfort after the operation or get tired at work the same way as we, Madame and Monsieur. So do not expect much from those athletes who have to perform in the league for two days in a row. So, Duane Wade with his weak knees or Dwight Howard with a sick back will not be able to “drag” partners several evenings in a row. Such periods in the game will be manifested primarily in the individual statistics of basketball players. Superstars just coming out of the hospital are also unlikely to be your assistant. For example, Rondo, who played all 48 minutes without substitutions, will not be able to look exactly like the new one the next day, even if he says otherwise in an interview.
