NBA Standard Deviation for DFS (3/8)

Posted By PlayPicks Staff on March 8, 2015 - Last Updated on June 27, 2018


Happy Sunday, everyone. If you avoided the early games like myself, then you’re hungry for tonight’s 5 game showdown. My standard deviation breakdown will help you navigate through your roster, and will allow you to analyze each player as to whether they’re a fit for the game type you’re approaching (cash or tourney). Fair warning: this is perhaps the most volatile 5 game slate I’ve analyzed in quite some time. Many players are completely unpredictable, especially at shooting guard. My advice? Pay up for DeMar DeRozan, Monta Ellis, or Victor Oladipo. Going cute and contrarian at SG tonight will leave you wallowing in despair.
