The FanDuel cheat sheet is a set of player recommendations for the day's daily fantasy basketball slate. It is driven by statistical calculations that consider a variety of factors, including usage rates, pace, opposing defenses and more. Rankings are based on value, not raw production.
If Jeff Teague is labeled a "Great" play while Russell Westbrook is an "Average" play, it doesn't mean Teague is a better player than Westbrook -- it means given his price and matchup today, rostering him will better allow you to maximize the total points in your DFS lineup. Westbrook may be overpriced and a waste of money in this particular matchup.
