FanDuel NBA Projected Optimal Lineup (Aug 20, 2014)

Algorithm Projected Lineup

This page is the former home of our daily “Algorithm Projected Fanduel Optimal Lineup.” We created this lineup daily based off of our projections system.

This feature is currently down but will return soon. On August 8th we relaunched our site on a new platform and didn’t have time to rebuild a few features, including this one. Please bear with us while we get the Fanduel MLB Optimal Projected Lineup Tool rebuilt. We’re hoping to have it back live within the month.

In the mean time you can check out these other resources to help you with your lineup building:

Grinders Forums – We have tons of strategy threads discussing both today’s picks and general strategy. Create an account to post a question.

GrindersLive – Up to three videos per day, all focused on strategy for tonight’s games.

FanDuel Daily Research – Featuring dozens of research tools for MLB, NFL, and NBA

The Algorithm-Projected Lineup is a lineup based on the RotoGrinders Player Projections. We run a randomization algorithm with high-order iterations to determine which player combination is projected to score the most points for each Daily Fantasy site’s unique pricing and scoring systems. The lineup is generated each morning at 11 AM ET for MLB, 12 PM ET for NBA, and each week on Wednesdays for NFL. Lineups are manually updated by RotoGrinders in the event of injuries and news updates. Make sure to check for late scratches and lineup adjustments by following @RotoGrinders on Twitter. Last-minute lineup changes will be posted on Twitter before the algorithm-projected lineup is recalculated, and the lineup may not be updated to account for late scratches.

The above picks are intended as a starting point to help supplement your own Daily Fantasy research. We do not recommend blindly playing the above lineup without understanding the core principles of daily fantasy games. If you are new to Daily Fantasy, we recommend reading The Strategy Vault in its entirety before putting any lineups in play.

Note: The Algorithm-Projected Lineup is not yet optimized for sites that allow players to be designated as multiple position players, e.g. a 1B/3B or a SF/PG.
