Here’s how to deal with them and use the knowledge to your advantage.

In this course, you’ll learn:

• The importance of injuries in NBA DFS and how to place backups in your lineup to maximize it
• How to keep track of injuries throughout the season and right up to lock time
• How to distribute value and production from an injured player to the rest of the lineup
