Free optimal NBA daily fantasy picks, rankings & projections for DraftKings & FanDuel lineups tonight | Awesemo's lineup optimizer 11/19/2021

There is a larger, nine-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. 19

*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 Jalen Brunson — Grades: A, A | Values: A, A

Luka Doncic is listed as doubtful to play tonight. If he is out yet again, then turn attention to Jalen Brunson. He has played a large role for the Mavericks this season, both leading the second unit and fitting in alongside the starters. With Doncic out, he gets even better. His usage rate increases by 5.8 percentage points, bringing him to 27.4% and 1.2 fantasy points per minute. Awesemo’s Projections view him as the top value play on both sites today.

Brunson will, undoubtedly, be showing up all over the optimal lineups when running the NBA DFS lineup optimizer today. As the day progresses, check out all of our NBA DFS cheat sheets for DraftKings, FanDuel and Yahoo, as we run optimal lineups and give you a glimpse at some of the Awesemo premium data and tools for FREE.

PF Kristaps Porzingis — Grades: A, A | Values: B, C

Again, with Doncic doubtful, look to Kristaps Porzingis to step up his game tonight. He has put together a few really good games in a row. However, Awesemo’s Rankings view him as a much better value on DraftKings, as he is priced $1,200 more expensive on FanDuel. With Doncic off the floor, Porzingis operates with a team-high 31.4% usage rate this season, averaging 1.48 fantasy points per minute. Tonight Awesemo projects Porzingis to play 30.7 minutes, which would make him great play at his season’s production pace.

PF Pascal Siakam — Grades: A, A | Values: B, A

Since returning to the lineup, Pascal Siakam has been a bit hit or miss, mostly due to his shooting percentage. For example, he shot 2-for-14 last game. However, tonight’s game against the Kings has the highest projected total of the night due to both teams ranking in the bottom half of the league in defensive efficiency. This is also a major pace-up game for the Raptors, which should bode well for Siakam on the offensive end of the floor. Awesemo’s Boom/Bust Tool gives him a floor of around 35 NBA fantasy points, but his ceiling is over 48. Look for him to finish closer to his ceiling in this high-scoring game.

C Ivica Zubac — Grades: C, C | Values: A, A

If looking for a cheap, value center for tonight, Ivica Zubac looks to be a player that can fill that spot for you. He remains inexpensive tonight despite being a double-double machine and continuing to return value for those who pick him. Zubac has averaged 10.5 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks over his past 10 games. The matchup against New Orleans seems strong as well since they rank dead last in defensive efficiency this season. While Awesemo’s Projections do not view him as the top value play at the center position, he may be the safest.
