NBA Daily Fantasy Picks Based on Awesemo Grades & Values | 11/22/21

There is a large 10-game NBA daily fantasy slate today. 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. 22

*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.

PF Tobias Harris — Grades: A, B | Values: B, A

With Joel Embiid still out, Tobias Harris continues to be firmly in play. Tonight he faces a poor Kings team that just fired their head coach. Danny Green also continues to miss games with a hamstring injury, and he is currently listed as questionable to play tonight. With him out last game, Harris put up a great performance, totaling 28 points, eight rebounds and three assists. Facing the Kings in a big pace-up game for the 76ers, Harris should have plenty of opportunities to thrive as the leader of this team yet again. He is the first choice on the list because Awesemo’s rankings like him on both sites, and he should continue to run the show with Embiid and obviously Ben Simmons out.

SG Josh Giddey — Grades: B, B | Values: B, A

Josh Giddey is either a point guard or small forward on DraftKings, while he is listed as a shooting guard on FanDuel. But no matter the site, Awesemo’s Rankings list him as a good value, and it is easy to see why. He has been incredibly efficient, scoring between 32 and 36 DraftKings NBA fantasy points in each of the past four games and five of the past seven. Over his past five games, Giddey has averaged 11 points, nine rebounds and 4.4 assists, chipping in 1.2 combined blocks and steals per game. With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander questionable to play tonight, Giddey has the potential to have an even larger role tonight.

Fellow Awesemo NBA expert Matt LaMarca also loves Giddey tonight. Check out his breakdown of Giddey in his Monday NBA DFS Slate Starter preview today.

C Jonas Valanciunas — Grades: A, A | Values: C, A

This is a FanDuel exclusive, where the Awesemo NBA Daily Fantasy Rankings have Jonas Valanciunas as a much better value due to being $900 cheaper than on DraftKings. Tonight he faces a Timberwolves team he has already smashed this season. In two games against Minnesota, Valanciunas has averaged 21 points, 20 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals. He is a load down low that the Timberwolves do not have an answer for. On FanDuel, where Valanciunas is only $8,000, he has a great chance to exceed value yet again.

PF Chimezie Metu — Grades: C, C | Values: A, A

Chimezie Metu is continuing to outperform his cheap price tag. While the firing of Luke Walton could make this a risky place since the rotation could get changed for tonight, Metu is inexpensive enough that it does not fully matter. He has played 23 or more minutes in each of the past five games, and Awesemo projects Metu to play 25.8 minutes tonight. Should this be true, he is in perfect shape to exceed value yet again.
