These 4 simple strategies will help you start winning today

Minutes Matter

More time on the court means more opportunities to score fantasy points. Look for players who log high minutes per game to do better on the stat sheet.

Every injury is an opportunity

When a starter gets injured, look for his backup to get extra playing time and put up better stats at a lower cost.

The best offense is a bad defense

It might sound obvious, but be sure to highlight players who are up against bad defenses. Last year, the worst 10 defenses gave up an average of 10 points per game more than the top 10. That’s 10 more fantasy points distributed among the opposing players — before you even factor in offensive rebounds (1.2 fantasy points) and assists (1.5 fantasy points).

Be offensive

On FanDuel, the best way to score a lot of fantasy points… is to score a lot of real-world points. Look for players on teams that score the most points per game — better offenses also have more opportunities to rack up other scoring categories like rebounds and assists.
