NBA FANTASY METRICS GLOSSARY

Explanations for our advanced NBA fantasy metrics.

PROJECTION: Projected total fantasy points.

VALUE: (Player projected points)/(Player salary/1000). Player value tries to quantify how good of a value play a projected to be based off their salary and from their expected points. If a player is projected 50 points, and his Fan Duel salary is $10,000, his value is 5. Values of 4.8 and above are traditionally considered good values, and value below that number are considered below average values.

CGPR: Cash game player rating. This rating measures how good of a play a player is in cash game formats (50/50s, Double Ups, Head To Heads). 100 is the average rating, higher is better, lower is worse. A player with a 162 CGPR is a 62% better play than the average player. 

TPR: Tournament player rating. This rating measures how good of a play a player is in tournament formats (GPPs, Multipliers). 100 is the average rating, higher is better, lower is worse. A player with a 162 CGPR is a 62% better play than the average player. 

CEI: Ceiling. A player's ceiling virtually the highest amount our model sees a player possibly scoring. Historically, a player scores within his floor and ceiling 95% of the time. 

FLO: Floor. A player's floor virtually the lowest amount our model sees a player possibly scoring. Historically, a player scores within his floor and ceiling 95% of the time.

 

OWN %: Projected ownership percentage.  If Kevin Durant is projected to be owned by 52/100 players in a Double Up, his projected ownership is 52%. High ownership makes a player a better play in cash games, low ownership makes a player a better play in tournaments.
