Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice
NBA DFS is one of the most popular sports for users playing on FanDuel & DraftKings, and for good reason -- it's easy to create lineups, it's fun to watch, and the scoring is nonstop. But if you're looking to be profitable, it's incredibly difficult to find actionable daily fantasy basketball advice. With the late-breaking injury news and inevitable last-minute scratches, how can you reasonably re-work your lineups with this new information and only a couple minutes before lock?
That's where we step in. Occupy Fantasy is focused on bankroll management and contest selection to help DFS players become profitable.
But especially for NBA, we've modified our keystone products -- the Daily Plug and Occupy Model -- to provide daily fantasy basketball advice that is actionable right up until the last game tips off. We'll do all of this while also giving you steps to choose the right contests and properly manage your money, showing you the best way to grow your bankroll.

How do we do that? It all starts with our 19-chapter DFS e-book that focuses on the fundamentals:
The Ultimate Guide: A Foundation for Your Success
The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Profitable Daily Fantasy Sports Player is broken down into three sections -- Bankroll Management, Contest Selection, and Bigger Picture Strategy -- and provides guidelines and examples for becoming a successful DFS player. The information in this Guide can’t be found anywhere in the DFS industry -- we dove deep to explain the foundational pieces that are missing from every losing DFS player’s toolbox.
Some example topics include:
- Fitting Lineups to Different Contests
- Free Money!?
- The Best Contest Types for Increasing Your Bankroll
- How to Avoid DFS Pros in Your Contests
- Optimal Process for DFS Research
You can check out a Chapter Preview to see the type of information available in this guide. Even the most experienced DFS players will learn from each chapter.
Our Daily Plug: Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice That's Catered to You
The NBA Daily Plug is a unique daily write-up that we consider an in-depth road map for each slate.
Note: The NBA Daily Plug will only be written for main slates with 5+ games.
The Plug starts by giving you the top plays at each position, plus added context for our Occupy Model (more on that below). Provided analysis for each play is geared towards contest selection and game theory.
Then, depending on the dynamics of that particular slate, we give bankroll and contest selection recommendations. This isn't generic, however -- it's all catered to your personal bankroll and DFS goals. After reading the Ultimate Guide, you should have a good understanding of why you're playing DFS.
Don't like risk? Playing for the big pay day? Only have a small bankroll? Is this a legitimate side income for you? No matter who you are, the Daily Plug will tell you the best way to play that day's slate.
NEW FOR NBA: We will provide an entire "IF-THEN" section in each Daily Plug. For each player that has a chance of being ruled out, we'll tell you how his absence impacts the slate before it even happens. So if this player is scratched at 6:55pm, you already know the steps to quickly change your lineup.
The Occupy Model: Real-Time, Sortable Research
Our NBA Occupy Model provides real-time updates and sortable key performance indicators for every player on the slate, giving you an in-depth look at the top plays.
Live lineup changes, betting odds movements, projections, and more are updated as they happen. As a result, all of your research for a slate is presented in one digestible dashboard.
We’ve spent countless hours developing this analytical model that predicts fantasy output based on a variety of key performance indicators. Points per minute, pace, betting odds, on/off court adjustments, and matchups are all incorporated. With our Premium subscription, you’ll be able to view the engine that drives Occupy Fantasy.
The NBA Occupy Model will provide rankings for classic, single game, and tiers slates. Projected ownership will be provided only for classic slates with 5+ games.
With a 7 p.m. EST lock time on most nights, it is nearly impossible to research every day and make profitable lineups.
New for NBA: Our Occupy Model will update every minute in the last hour before lock, checking for inactives, and adjusting minutes/projections all the way up until the slate locks. Our daily fantasy basketball advice works around the clock for you.
