Wednesday’s 10-game NBA slate provides us with a wealth of excitement around the league. When creating lineups, it’s important to find value spots that open up space for getting the superstars. Below are four NBA daily fantasy picks to use on Dream11 based on Awesemo’s grades and values.
Dream11 NBA Picks: Awesemo Grades | March 3
C Enes Kanter: 8.5 Credits
For players that are projected to score 40 Dream11 NBA fantasy points tonight, Kanter ranks atop the value column (4,964.7) at a cost of only 8.5 credits. The matchup is a good one, considering only one other team in the NBA has a lower rebounding rate than the Warriors.
When the teams met back on Jan. 3, Kanter hammered the Warriors for 24 points and 12 rebounds in only 24 minutes. Awesemo’s projections have Kanter as the best value at the center position on a number of different sites this evening, so we should all feel confident in rolling with the big man.
C Jarrett Allen: 10 Credits
According to Awesemo’s rankings, Allen checks in with the 12th-highest projected fantasy points (43.62) of anyone on tonight’s slate. However, it will only cost you 10 credits to get Allen on your roster. Indiana allows the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing centers this season, so this is certainly a great place to dig in.
Since Andre Drummond was basically exiled from Cleveland in mid-February, the center position belongs solely to Allen, and he’s running with it. In those eight contests, Allen is averaging 17.1 points, 13.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. Look for him to keep on thriving in this position.

SG Norman Powell: 8 Credits
It has been a while since the Raptors played a game (six days to be exact). In the eye of the optimist, that’s a lot of good rest and motivation that has been bottled up. The last time we saw Powell on the court, he dropped 30 points against the Rockets. Look for that confidence to continue against a Pistons team that doesn’t pose much of a threat.
In addition to this great matchup comes a huge opportunity to make an impact. The Raptors will be without Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, O.G. Anunoby, Patrick McCaw and Malachi Flynn; that leaves a ton of minutes up for grabs, and Powell will gladly take them. For the number of minutes and shots Powell will get, the price of 8 credits is absolutely silly.
PF Jerami Grant: 10.5 Credits
In that same game as Powell, it will be Grant on the Pistons’ end coming back ferociously against the Raptors. Now that Siakam and Anunoby have been ruled out for Toronto, that makes Grant’s job easier to maneuver around.
This game is shaping up to be a low-key source of fantasy points, with the two teams both coming in with a ton of rest. In most cases, that helps out the cause on offense, and that’s the game we’re playing here. Grant has been consistently playing huge minutes in the mid-30s, so all of that work should finally come in handy. He has at least 7 rebounds in each of his last three games.
