NBA Daily Fantasy Picks: Awesemo Grades | Dec. 3

*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 LaMarcus Aldridge — Grades: B, B | Values: A, A

LaMarcus Aldridge serve as a solid contributor for this Nets team all season long. However, he has turned up his level of play recently, averaging 17.2 points, seven rebounds and 1.3 blocks over his past six games. Part of the reason for this has been the absence of Joe Harris, so someone needed to pick up the slack on offense. Aldridge has also entered the starting lineup the past three games with Blake Griffin sidelined. Awesemo’s projections view Aldridge as the top overall value play on FanDuel tonight.

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

Mo Bamba has a consistent starting role and an every-night route to high minutes. After a couple of poor performances sprinkled in recently, he has seen his salary decrease a bit, which in turn raises how good of a value play he is. Tonight Bamba faces a Rockets team that Fantasy Cruncher labels as the sixth-easiest matchup for his position in the NBA. The matchup combined with his safe role gives Bamba a high ceiling tonight.

With such a cake matchup on the docket for Bamba, check out his NBA player props tonight, as it might be valuable to get more than traditional NBA DFS action down on Bamba.

C Dewayne Dedmon — Grades: C, C | Values: A, A

Bam Adebayo tore his UCL and will be out indefinitely. This inserts Dewayne Dedmon into the starting lineup. He started last game and recorded a 13-rebound double-double and three defensive stats in 31 minutes. Facing the Pacers tonight, everything points to another heavy workload for him. Play him while his salary remains low. Awesemo’s projections view Dedmon as the top overall value play on DraftKings tonight.

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

T.J. McConnell is out in that same game, and Justin Holiday is expected to also be sidelined once again. The latter is more important for Chris Duarte, as that directly will impact his minutes. Duarte played 35 minutes with Holiday out last game. He started the season strong, seeing a large role and proving to be NBA-ready immediately. However, as Indiana got healthier, his role shrank. However, at a cheap price and likely high minutes, Duarte is playable to the level he was earlier this season. Awesemo projects Duarte to play over 30 minutes again tonight.
