For those who played NBA DFS contests at DraftStreet over the past years, Star provides an almost seamless transition, as the point formula for NBA contests is the same (see scoring formula). That also makes it convenient to integrate into the RotoGuru arsenal of analytical tools, as that scoring formula has already been tracked (in the background) all season, in spite of DraftStreet's demise. I've started picking up NBA contest salary history for Star since mid-January. So you can immediately take advantage of tools and/or reports such as Daily Fantasy Points, sortable stats, and individual player histories.

(Orig publ. date: January 13)
Our algorithms here at numberFire run a script every day that gives us the "perfect lineups" from the previous day of NBA DFS. Our own Michael Worthington built a script to compile the optimal lineups from previous days, and our DFS guru, Sam Hauss, puts it out in article form and includes all the major DFS sites. We've been doing it a little over a month now, so I wanted to take some time and analyze some trends from the data.

So, I adjusted the historical DK points to reflect the proper scoring. This was done last night. So if you noticed that my listed DK point totals for some players inexplicably jumped by 1.5 (or some multiple thereof) overnight, that's the reason.
