Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pick my players?

It’s easy! Every player has a specific salary that’s based on their expected performance. The players projected to get more points have higher salaries. Your job is to fill all 9 positions on our fantasy basketball roster — PG, PG, SG, SG, SF, SF, PF, PF, C — while staying under the total salary cap for your team. To learn more about picking your players, visit our Fantasy Basketball Training Camp.

How does scoring work?

FanDuel created the official daily fantasy basketball scoring system of the NBA. It’s a lot like the traditional fantasy basketball you’re used to, and accurately rewards players for their in-game performances.
