Alex Baker will be leading the analysis up until lock each day while other members of Team Awesemo will also contribute.

Good luck tonight and be sure to catch my live stream at 4 ET M-Th, the Deeper Dive at 5 ET, and LBL!

Alex is better known to fantasy players by his handle "Awesemo" from seeing him in every big tournament in the industry. Playing poker professionally from 2009-2015, he heard that daily fantasy was the next big game picking up steam, and he quickly saw the potential of the relatively new game. Growing his bankroll from 2015-2016, he made a big step in 2017 by claiming the #1 overall ranking on RotoGrinders for the year. After completing his primary objective, he was looking for what's next. Attending dozens of fantasy events, Alex realized that everyone was repeating the same story: wanting to be a great DFS player while holding down a full-time job. He realized that the resources available to fantasy players while great weren't enough to help hobbyists get to the level of competing with the top pros. Having met Tom Kennedy during the FanDuel Scottish Open, the two decided to take on the realm of fantasy content along with co-founder Eddie Lai. Alex creates his own projections for each sport he plays, publishing rankings derived directly from them updated for each major slate. He also writes strategy content for how to become a better DFS player in his Game Plan series. You can contact Alex by emailing

    What exposure should I have with Noah Vonleh tonight. I personally think if he stays out of foul trouble, 30+ is there for the taking.

    I’ve had a sub for NBA Awesemo + FC Pro for a couple weeks now but I am struggling with Fantasy Cruncher. Where would recommend I start looking for help? Thanks in advance.

    Much obliged,

      I prefer Drummond in cash – the price tag is insane. I like both Markkanen and Draymond, that one depends on the site.

        Why isn’t this updated anymore? Seems like a lot of stuff hasn’t been getting updated. The nfl top stack tool isn’t either. Still Thursday games.

          Sorry about that, I was driving back from Thanksgiving yesterday so unfortunately I wasn’t able to keep it updated. I will pick a Saturday or Sunday in the future to make up the day of coverage.

    Does this only get updated about once a week or what determines how this is updated?

    Why does Derrick White project so high tonight? Wouldn’t he draw Westbrook D if he runs with the starters? Thanks for any insight. It gives me heart burn to think about playing him in my lineups since his FGA are relatively low.
