How To Set A DFS Lineup

The rules for setting a DFS lineup are simple. You need to choose a point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward, and center for your lineup. Additionally, you will select a guard (could be a point guard or shooting guard), a forward (small forward or power forward), and one utility player that can be in any position you want. Every player and entry has a budget of $50,000. Obviously, not every player has the same “salary,” so you need to be strategic in who you pick. If you choose two superstars, you will have to deploy a few weaker players to help average your lineup out.


The Fantasy Basketball World Championship, hosted by DraftKings, is the most exciting DFS event for fans of the NBA. There are a total of 100 players who will walk away with money, including the one million dollar top prize and the five-hundred thousand dollars second place prize. Even the 100th place DFS player walks away with fifteen thousand dollars!
