NBA Fantasy Projections & Optimal Lineup Picks Tonight

Boom: Domantas Sabonis — $9,800 DraftKings/$8,500 FanDuel

34.6% DraftKings Boom/41.2% FanDuel Boom

Malcolm Brogdon and Chris Duarte are both out for the Pacers today, which will only increase the usage rate for Domantas Sabonis. Despite starting the season slow in the assist category, he has picked it up lately, averaging six assists to go along with 16 rebounds per game over his past three games. With Brogdon out tonight, his assists should continue to go up, as he may be the team’s best healthy passer right now. Awesemo’s projections list Sabonis as the third-highest projected NBA fantasy scorer on both DraftKings and FanDuel, while also being the fourth-best overall value play on FanDuel.

Boom: Damian Jones — $3,000 DraftKings/$4,000 FanDuel

58.8% DraftKings Boom/36.1% FanDuel Boom

The Kings will be without Richaun Holmes once again tonight, as he entered the league’s health and safety protocols yesterday. Damian Jones will be asked to help fill that void. He has been playing much better recently, averaging 10 points, 8.5 rebounds and 0.8 blocks over the past four games in 22.8 minutes. Awesemo projects Jones for 25.6 minutes today. He is also listed as the third-best overall value play on DraftKings and the second-best on FanDuel.

Boom: Luka Doncic — $10,800 DraftKings/$10,000 FanDuel

36.0% DraftKings Boom/30.4% FanDuel Boom

It has been quite an extended absence for Luka Doncic. Between an ankle injury and enter the league’s health and safety protocols, Doncic has missed the past 10 games. His salary has dipped slightly, and many will be hesitant to play Doncic in his first game back, as there are plenty of reasons why he would show a bit of rust. However, if he comes backs locked in, Doncic will be a fantastic play against the Thunder, so it’s worth having exposure to him today. The Awesemo Boom/Bust Tool views him as a high ceiling, high floor play today.

Bust: LaMelo Ball — $9,500 DraftKings/$9,300 FanDuel

55.8% DraftKings Bust/65.0% FanDuel Bust

LaMelo Ball has a tough matchup against the Suns today, and it would take a great performance to simply hit value, much less exceed it. Ball has been inconsistent in his six games since returning to the lineup. He has topped 20 points only three times during that span. Ball also has seven or fewer assists four times and six or fewer rebounds four times. In other words, he has been a bust at this price point often, the matchup will be tough for him to perform well today, and the Awesemo Boom/Bust Tool suggests you pay up elsewhere.
