Multiplier value is an important aspect of dfs. It’s help us asses players and gives us direction when making a lineup.
For NBA, its usually suggested you want a 5-6X value. This will give a project score of around 300. While I think this idea is good, I am leaning toward moving to a new approach as I play NBA dfs more. I feel like the following will help create better lineups, help win GPPS and not make mistakes that could of been avoidable.
Idea: Assign a target score for a salary range rather than a multiplier. (Fanduel)
30 points : salary less than $5000
40 points : salary between $5000-$9000
50 points : salary $9000+
This is a simplistic approach but to win a GPP you have to score high and have all your players hit.
