Here are some statistics I like to use when assessing my daily fantasy basketball picks.
Team Defensive Efficiency: The number of points a team allows per 100 possessions. You want your players facing the bottom of the pack here. Charlotte, Sacramento, Cleveland, New Orleans, and Toronto lead the league in inefficiency.
Opponent Shooting Percentage: This one is pretty obvious. You want your guys facing teams that give up buckets easier than the average bear or bobcat.
Team Points Per Game: For some reason you want your players to be on a team that scores a bunch.
Points Allowed Per Game: Similar to Team Defensive Efficiency, but these are the raw numbers per game, which tell you a a little different story.
