NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Saturday 3/2/13

Live and direct from the MIT Sports Analytics Conference, it's...Joakim Noah?!

I'm in the middle of the Sloan Conference in Boston, so let's get right to the point: some sweet, sweet fantasy projections.

We know that people play all sorts of fantasy platforms, not just from from our friends at StarStreet but on other platforms such as DraftStreet and FanDuel as well. So once again, we're not only going to give you one, but three optimized rosters, all for you, the numberFire reader.

As you can see, there are some minor differences between the rosters. That has to do with two key components: the position restrictions on each site, and the different player pricing system on the sites as well. We've plugged this data into our player projection system, and we've come up with the best overall values for your Daily Fantasy team on each platform today.

As always, the full tables for today's action are available at our Daily Fantasy Projections page. Make sure to check it out to see where the best values are for your team.

The Daily Fantasy Helper

In case you haven't heard about the Helper, we created a quick little system for you to create possible rosters, get feedback, give feedback, and get consensus from everyone on who the best starters are. The more people who set their rosters, the more you'll see who the most common players are, and who the best values are. Check it out, create a roster and get started now!
