NBA Sim Sports Picks for 4/19/20 on FanDuel
During this downtime in the sports calendar, FanDuel has been innovating a lot of different ways to get some daily fantasy sports action.
One of those includes NBA Sim Sports, a format that looks pretty much identical to the usual FanDuel offering. The only twist is that the games won't be played live. Players will instead be assigned a random game from one of their top 25 historical comparisons based on numberFire's algorithm.
Late-scratches and other games missed by players won't come into effect. Scores roll out throughout the slate for a bit of a sweat.
The best part? It's free to enter.
Here are some potential standout picks.
Because player similarities are tied to numberFire's player evaluations, it makes sense to dig into those efficiency metrics to uncover possible value.
Here are the best positional values based on a player's given FanDuel salary versus his nERD score.
For the most part, this is going to be a list of studly, efficient players, but exercise caution with some lower-tier names who happen to pop in terms of efficiency.
