This projection system was developed by Josh Engleman, Awesemo.com’s Director of Content. They are NOT Awesemo’s projections and Awesemo had no role in the development of this system. Where there is any conflict between these projections and Awesemo’s rankings, the rankings should control.
Pace: projected pace
Vegas: implied points scored based on the “Vegas” line taken from Pinnacle.com.
xMin: projected minutes
USG: projected usage rate
Fpts: projected fantasy points
DK/$1K: projected fantasy points per $1000 of salary
Pref: another value metric similar to DK/$1K. Formula is [(Fpts ^ sqrt(3)) / Salary] * 100.
GPA: Josh’s letter grades from A-F. A comprehensive score based on salary, expected fantasy points and value. These are NOT the same letter grades you will find in the rankings articles. The table allows you to filter but not sort by grades.
