Projected Minutes are as important to a player in NBA DFS as any other metric we use in any sport. If you’re a football fan, they are similar to touches for a running back. Or, if you are a fan of daily fantasy baseball, they are equivalent to quality at-bats for a baseball player. In NBA DFS, everything is about opportunity and minutes directly provide that for a player. There is a strong relationship between minutes and fantasy production.

This just makes sense: The longer a player is on the floor, the more opportunities he is going to have to score points, grab rebounds, dish out assists, and rack up blocks and steals on the defensive end of the floor. Minutes aren’t the only statistic that we should use in our daily research routine, but it is certainly one of the most important. If you can accurately predict minutes, you will be able to accurately predict fantasy production over the course of the season. The key to that sentence is the word accurately. This course is designed to help you get better at predicting minutes.
