NBA Daily Fantasy Picks Based on Awesemo Grades & Values | 11/18/21




There is a mid-sized, six-game NBA fantasy slate tonight. Plenty of NBA DFS injury news is yet to come out, so be sure to check the Awesemo NBA Starting Lineups page to see who is in, who is out and who is starting as news breaks, and look at the NBA DFS rankings and projections for both DraftKings and FanDuel lineups tonight.

NBA Daily Fantasy Picks: Awesemo Grades | Nov. 18

*Grades are ordered DraftKings, FanDuel. Initial grade indicates a player’s strength of output, with the value grade indicating their strength as a play in relation to their salary.

PG Raul Neto — Grades: C, C | Values: A, A

Spencer Dinwiddie is not expected to play tonight due to load management. Assuming this comes to fruition, Awesemo’s Projections list Raul Neto as the top overall value on the slate for both sites. He is priced near the minimum industrywide, so it will not make much for Neto to hit and exceed value. He is projected to play over 30 minutes, and Neto has been around 0.8 fantasy points per minute. He becomes an easy lock if he starts due to his price.

SG Anthony Edwards — Grades: A, B | Values: B, B

There are not many players that will return value and also be top scorers on this slate. However, on the second leg of a back-to-back, Anthony Edwards is one of the few players that can do that. He is having a great start to the season, putting up as many shots as he likes like while also filling the stat sheet with rebounds and blocks. He faces a Spurs team that has been in a slump. Look for him to play high minutes yet again. Awesemo’s Rankings give him a B for value, but his ceiling is one of the best players on the entire slate. He just needs to improve his shooting percentage a bit, and the Spurs rank in the bottom half of the league in opponent shooting percentage.

PG Eric Bledsoe — Grades: B, B | Values: B, A

The Awesemo NBA Daily Fantasy Rankings have Eric Bledsoe as a better value on FanDuel, but he is in play on both sites. Tonight he faces a Memphis team that has not been great defensively this season. They allow opponents to shoot 47.1% from the floor, which is the third worst in the NBA. Memphis is also the second-worst team in defensive efficiency. Bledsoe has been asked to be a scorer for the Clippers this season, and the matchup tonight should make it easier on him.

Bledsoe caught the eye of fellow NBA analyst Matt LaMarca, who wrote up why Bledsoe is in his initial build for tonight’s slate in his Thursday NBA DFS Slate Starter article.

PF Jarred Vanderbilt — Grades: D, D | Values: A, A

Jarrad Vanderbilt has started the past four games for the Timberwolves, slowly seeing his role increasing. He is a lock to get rebounds, blocks and steals. If he gets more involved on the offensive end of the floor, he will end up being a great play. Awesemo projects Vanderbilt as one of the best value plays on the slate today. Hopefully he can stay out of foul trouble and put up a few more shots.
