Notorious' Lineup-Building Manual for NBA DFS

Notorious’ Lineup-Building Manual for NBA DFS is a written course that takes all the principles of his other RotoAcademy courses and applies them directly to the process of making lineups for cash games and guaranteed prize pools. Given that so much information is now available, the largest edge in daily fantasy sports is in knowing how to construct lineups that consistently win.

In this course, we cover the following topics:
• Lineup-building mistakes
• All-value lineups
• Playing and fading the chalk
• Balancing player exposures
