Daily Fantasy Basketball: Research Tools to Know and Use

Every daily fantasy basketball player needs to do his or her homework. These tools are paramount for doing just that.

Getting a good education can help you get ahead in life.

You don't need to pay for post-secondary school or have a fancy degree to be successful, but it's hard to say that learning is a detriment.

This is coming from a guy whose master's degree has an emphasis on international finance and who writes about fantasy sports for a living, so I know a thing or two about learning things that you don't need.

It's not that having a basic understanding of globalization and conversion rates don't help me understand certain concepts in a salary cap-based fantasy sports format but rather that my time -- and money -- weren't spent very optimally. Much like finding that final punt play in whom you have no confidence just to fill out your roster, I did what I had to do to graduate on time.

In the daily fantasy grind of the NBA season, you don't have time and money to squander, and you certainly don't want to give up on that final roster spot by plugging in a bad play, so your research and homework needs to be on point.

Here are some of the best tools you can use to make the most out of your research process.
