You’ll draft a full lineup using the standard roster limits and salary cap.
However, we made a change! Instead of limiting each player to his own 2019-20 game log, our custom nF analytics compare him to the 25 most similar player seasons dating back to 2000-01.
The simulation then chooses a similar game from a similar matchup in one of those player seasons.
- Example - Rudy Gobert could be a match with Deandre Jordan’s 2015 campaign and a match with Tyson Chandler’s 2011 campaign. We draw from random game logs from those two player seasons (and 23 others) and factor in the game matchup to produce a stat line for Gobert.
Only games where players scored more than 0 points will be available to be assigned stats. No need to worry about DNPs. Injury reports are thrown out door too. Every player in the player pool is completely healthy.
