NBA Daily Fantasy Picks: Awesemo Grades | October 25

*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.

SF Brandon Ingram — Grades: A, A | Values: B, A

Brandon Ingram has taken control and play well to begin the season. He has posted a usage rate above 30% in all three games, attempting at least 20 shots and scoring 25-plus points in each game. Ingram has a high floor because of this usage, and the matchup against Minnesota gives him a ceiling about as high as anyone on this slate, but he is priced a tier below the elite players. This is a rematch from a couple of days ago, in which Ingram scored 30 points to go along with six rebounds and four assists. For these reasons, Awesemo’s projections are loving him tonight.

C Bam Adebayo — Grades: A, A | Values: B, A

Through two games this season Bam Adebayo is scoring 1.36 NBA fantasy points per minute on DraftKings. His energy on the boards has him getting double-doubles nearly by halftime. Tonight, he gets a matchup against a Magic team that has plenty of size, but they are also inexperienced. Look for the Adebayo to use his experience to his advantage, leading to another great fantasy performance. According to the Awesemo Fantasy Cruncher, his floor is over 30 points and his ceiling is over 60.

C Mo Bamba — Grades: B, B | Values: A, B

Mo Bamba is really impressing to begin the season. He has back-to-back double-doubles as well as six blocks in three games. However, the best part about Bamba this season is that he is finally getting consistent minutes. He has played 34 minutes in back-to-back games. Bamba has always been an efficient per-minute player, so now that he is getting the workload, he should be viewed as a solid fantasy option that has the potential in the blocks category for a massive performance.

SG Chris Duarte — Grades: B, B | Values: A, A

Chris Duarte has been the best rookie in the league to begin the season, averaging 20.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and a steal in 39.7 minutes per game. While his price has risen, the NBA fantasy sites are still a bit hesitant to go higher due to him being a rookie. Take advantage of this because his 23.2% usage rate last game is legit, and he is getting every possible opportunity to contribute. Playing alongside a talented passing big man in Domantas Sabonis is also creating open jumpers, which he has been knocking down. Awesemo’s projections have him slated for another 2.72 made 3-point shots tonight.
