The NBA DFS projection model was created with input from and is maintained by a team of Awesemo contributors led by Josh Engleman and including Adam “Shipmymoney” Scherer, Dave “Loughy” Loughran, Tom “tomjk321” Kennedy and Eddie “l800Eddie” Lai.
Pace: Projected possessions for the game.
Vegas: Implied team total based on Pinnacle’s line.
MP: Projected minutes
USG: Projected usage rate
Proj: Fantasy point projection for DK/FD
SD: Projected standard deviation of NBA fantasy points
/$1K: (Proj / Salary) * 1000 – Also known as “value”
^: The difference between ceiling projection and the player’s target score based on their salary. Order matters here.
*There will be slight differences in the site specific NBA projections compared to the total you would get by using the given stat line. It should generally be minor, but I do add defensive adjustments and player tweaks to the player’s output itself and not to the components.
