Start winning today with these simple strategies.
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.
Target Bad Defenses
It might sound obvious, but pick players who are going up against bad defenses. Even underperforming players can have break-out nights against a poor defense.
The best way to score a lot of fantasy points... is to score a lot of real-world points. Target teams that focus on offense, and target games that are expected to be high-scoring.
Every Injury is an Opportunity
When a starter gets injured, his backup will usually get extra playing time and put up better stats at a lower cost.
