NBA Fantasy Projections & Optimal Lineup Picks Tonight

Top Boom Candidates

Nikola Jokic: $12,000 DraftKings/$11,400 FanDuel | 28.3% DraftKings Boom/33.8% FanDuel Boom

If you are paying up for a star tonight, Nikola Jokic looks to be one of the best candidates. While very few match up well with the MVP anyways, the Nets certainly don’t have anyone who can do that job, given their injuries and long COVID list. Awesemo projects Jokic as the top overall play by about 10 NBA fantasy points tonight, which is crazy. Given some of the other value plays, like the ones listed below, it should be easy to fit Denver’s big man if you want him.

Delon Wright: $3,000 DraftKings/$3,700 FanDuel | 67.5% DraftKings Boom/59.0% FanDuel Boom

It was announced that Trae Young was placed in the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocol, which means Delon Wright should be asked to play a much larger role today and going forward. So, it’s wise to take advantage of his cheap price today, as it will likely be on the rise. Awesemo projects Wright to play 29.6 minutes today. He is also the top value play on both DraftKings and FanDuel today.

Trey Burke: $3,800 DraftKings/$4,300 FanDuel | 45.7% DraftKings Boom/33.8% FanDuel Boom

Luka Doncic remains out for the Mavericks, and Trey Burke has seen his minutes increasing. He has played more than 20 minutes in back-to-back games after averaging 12.7 for the season. Facing the Timberwolves tonight, the Awesemo Boom/Bust Tool gives Burke a floor of about 22 NBA fantasy points and a ceiling of about 32. Dallas needs to find some offense with Doncic out, and it’s possible an increased role for Burke is exactly what is needed.

Top Bust Candidates

Russell Westbrook: $10,400 DraftKings/$9,700 FanDuel | 74.1% DraftKings Bust/60.2% FanDuel Bust

It’s gotten to the point where it’s a major risk to play Russell Westbrook if LeBron James is also active. While the Anthony Davis injury opens up some production, other players like Carmelo Anthony and Isaiah Thomas are soaking it up. There are too many individuals on this Lakers team that need the ball in order for them to be successful, with Westbrook being at the front of that. He’s unable to take defensive rebounds the full length of the court on a consistent basis with the Lakers, so the Awesemo Boom/Bust Tool suggests it’s best to avoid him tonight.
