DailyRoto Launches 2019 Premium NBA DFS Product
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Last season we rolled out the single most comprehensive NBA DFS product we have ever offered and we are excited to crank it up a notch again this year. Let’s start at the top.


Want the most accurate NBA DFS projections?

Lineup Study from Manny Lora independently tracked and reviewed the performance of NBA DFS content providers, and how their projections compared to actual fantasy performances. The results? DailyRoto was #1, producing the most accurate NBA DFS projections in the industry. Build lineups seamlessly in our NBA Lineup Optimizer.

Our Customizable Projections and NBA DFS Lineup Optimizer has everything you need. Build hundreds of lineups in seconds with our NBA Optimizer, which will allow you to control player ownership, customize our projections using your inputs and much more. Our optimizer features FLOOR and CEILING projections as well as our Standard Projections. Leverage these inputs for cash games and tournaments to create different styles of lineups.

We can’t explain it all. Each day of the NBA season you’ll be able to see our default projections for every player from every game that day built by our team of pros. We’ll monitor the projections and update them on the fly to reflect critical injury news and rotation changes. While the projections are a great baseline, you also have the ability to adjust minutes and projections to reflect breaking news.
If you are an ELITE or Premium NFL subscriber you may be familiar with some of our new optimizer features:
  • Shuffle and Volatility: Your go-to diversity settings. Shuffle provides lineup diversity for MME by reducing player projections for future lineups the more a player is used. Volatility provides you the ability to reflect the range of outcomes and risk. A volatility setting of 10 will use a random projection for that player + / – 10 percent from our standard projection.
  • Key Boosts: Perfect for the GPP player who cares about correlations. Create IF / THEN rules for your projections to reflect uncertain scenarios or build smarter Showdown lineups. Confident that a Center matchup is one to attack but unsure about playing time? Construct rules to tell the optimizer IF you are using someone like Dwight Howard, then negatively boost the projection of JaVale McGee. Key boosts are the optimizer feature for the tactical DFS player.
Our projections will be available every day during the NBA season.

Tired of being burned by late scratches? Our 2019 NBA DFS Optimizer will feature late swap optimizer support for the sophisticated NBA DFS player. This new tool will allow users to quickly and accurately react to late news whether you are managing a single lineup or a 150-team MME set with a simple process:

  1. Download and upload your contest CSV from the operator
  2. Configure your optimizer settings or use ours
  3. Click RUN to generate new lineups based on the latest projections
  4. Export the CSV and upload to the operator

We will continue to offer late swap support via projections and alerts for users who want to make adjustments by hand.

Our optimizer supporting late swap will be in beta for the opening week of NBA DFS.



We are here to help you save time, money and frustration. For the 2019 NBA Regular season, we will be maintaining projection updates and lineup alerts post lock to provide our subscribers with every possible edge. Swap to DailyRoto and get the most accurate projections in NBA DFS updated throughout the slate.

For NBA our podcasts and written content will cover the main slate Monday through Friday. Weekend slates and short slates will be supported by projections and alerts with an expanded initial alert covering slate specific strategy.


We’ll have Cliff Notes under the podcast each day, which highlight the major points from the podcast, including pointing out core plays with accompanying research as well as separating cash game and tournament options. We’ve taken into account that some subscribers don’t have the time to listen to everything we have to say in podcast format. Hey, we get it.

Some incredible debates go down daily here and it’s a fantastic resource to leverage, particularly in NBA where late-breaking news tends to occur right up until roster lock. Use it! We’ll be in there right along with you and everyone else.

We cut down on your research time by organizing the most relevant data in a DFS friendly way to help you quickly make better decisions. Here’s what we have with even more on the way:

  • Usage/Rebound/Assist Rate Tracker – See each player’s usage, rebound, and assist rate for the season and over the last five games. This will help you to easily identify players who may be able to pick up more volume so that you can be ahead of the competition when it comes to spotting trends.
  • Fantasy Production – You’ll have access to each player’s site-specific Fantasy production viewable in a variety of formats – per game, per 36 minutes, per minute and with the ability to toggle between seasonal production and production over the last 5 games.
  • Global Stats – View each player’s performance across each Fantasy relevant statistic. Again, you will be able to filter between season long and last 10 game averages while being able to toggle between per game performance and per 36 minutes performance.

We provide Lineup Alerts and projection updates for all slates. In addition to providing lineup alerts through main slate locks, we have extended our lineup alerts to cover critical post-lock information helping make late swap decisions and play short slates. With this, our Premium NBA subscribers will receive timely alerts that include up to minute analysis of breaking injury, playing time, and commentary on how that news will affect the day’s NBA DFS games. Often times, our Lineup Alerts is what will separate winning lineups from dead lineups.


Lineup alerts will be available for every slate during the NBA Season. We will be providing lineup alerts and projection updates to reflect late swap news.
