NBA DATA FIELD DEFINITIONS

Field Name Explanation
Player Player's name
Team Player’s current team
Opp Player’s opponent for today
Vegas Refers to the spread, money line, or over/under total of Vegas sportsbooks for a given game or slate of games. These are useful to determine likely game outcomes and make lineup decisions based off those outcomes.
Pos Current qualifying position of the player
Salary Salary of player for today
$/Pt Dollars per point; the number of dollars each projected point costs. For example, if a player is priced at $10,000 and is projected for 20 points, you would divide $10,000 by 20 to get $500/point. The lower this number, the better, as you want to pay the least amount of salary possible for each point.
