Rajon Rondo (6200 DK, 6500 FD) – Since DeMarcus Cousins went down with an injury, Rajon Rondo’s fantasy production per minute has increased by almost 10%. Over the past four games, Rondo has averaged 33.5 minutes. This combined with an up-pace matchup with the Clippers makes Rondo a prime candidate to greatly exceed value for his salary. Probability of top 3 positional value: 21% DK, 25.65% FD.

Milos Teodosic (4700 DK, 4400 FD) – With the lack of depth at guard, Teodosic has been seeing minutes in the high 20’s, but hasn’t put up any inspiring numbers quite yet. A matchup versus the Pelicans is favorable for him to exceed his recent production, and he has a bargain basement price for a starting point guard. Probability of top 3 positional value: DK 13.6%, FD 21.65%.

Hassan Whiteside (6900 DK, 7200 FD) – Hassan Whiteside’s minutes lately haven’t been inspiring at first glance, but when you see the past two games he had one with foul trouble and one with a blowout it seems that low minutes are the exception and not the norm now. A pace-down matchup versus the Wizards isn’t ideal, but you’re getting a solid discount from what his salary should be based on his performance so far this season. Probability of top 3 positional value: 13.8% DK, 22.15% FD

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 support@awesemo.com.
