After the madcap run-up to lock on Friday’s slate, a six-game Saturday NBA DFS slate will hopefully be tame by comparison. This season has already reminded us the importance of staying on top of every piece of news through the day, so we know there will be moving parts and variables we don’t know about yet. Fortunately, the Awesemo team is on top of everything you need to help you make winning NBA DFS picks. We’re on top of the latest news and projections for DraftKings NBA and FanDuel NBA daily fantasy basketball contests. The guys will be coming to you live for TWO full hours, starting at 6:00 p.m. EST on the Awesemo.com YouTube channel.

Our NBA DFS projections are managed by Alex Baker and updated throughout the day as more information becomes available up until the last game tips. Projections are an integral part of a winning process for NBA DFS and using Awesemo’s projections provide you a system that’s proven to win money in tournaments over several seasons of action.
These NBA Rankings rankings for fantasy points and value are derived directly from my own fantasy NBA projections. Roster players with solid value rankings and spend most, if not all of your salary to build competitive lineups for your leagues.
In all DFS sports, being able to compare the strength of a player each day versus their popularity is key to success. In NBA, correlations between players are less valuable so the strength of each play can be considered individually. For each player, I calculate the standard deviation based on a variety of factors and use that to calculate the ceiling (75th-percentile performance) the floor (25th-percentile performance) and the probability that they will bust (not meeting value) or boom (value plus 10 points). Combining these metrics, you will be able to gain an edge on everyone by identifying under-owned or over-owned players.
Initial ownership percentages are posted daily by 1:00 p.m. EST and are updated every two hours throughout the day with a final update occurring 30 minutes before lock. Note that last-minute injury reports will impact not only the injured players’ or their replacements’ ownership, but can affect overall roster construction and therefore, every other player on the slate.
