NBA Daily Fantasy Picks: Awesemo Grades | Dec. 31

*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.

SG Tyler Herro — Grades: A, A | Values: A, A

Regardless of if Jimmy Butler plays tonight, the Heat are incredibly shorthanded and Tyler Herro will be asked to take as many shots as possible. However, this game is at risk of being postponed, especially with Butler questionable. He sprained his ankle last game, and one would assume he will be limited even if he does play tonight. The game is against the Rockets, who are terrible. Look for Herro to have his way all game long. Awesemo’s projections list Herro as the top overall value play on FanDuel tonight. He is also projected to lead the entire slate in points.

C Omer Yurtseven — Grades: A, B | Values: A, A

It is a good thing this Heat – Rockets game is the first one on the main slate, since everyone’s status will be known. If this game is in fact played, there is a ton of value all over. It would be foolish not to get exposure to Omer Yurtseven. The matchup is good, the price is reasonable, and Yurtseven has been playing quite well. He has a double-double in back-to-back starts, and he should be asked to score enough to tally another double-double tonight. As for rebounds, he has double-digit totals in six straight games, averaging 13 boards per game over this stretch. Awesemo’s projections list Yurtseven as the fourth-best value play on both DraftKings and FanDuel tonight.

PF Keldon Johnson — Grades: B, B | Values: A, A

Facing off against the Grizzlies tonight, Keldon Johnson looks to be a solid play. Dejounte Murray remains out for the Spurs. Johnson has been slightly better across the board when he does not share the floor with Murray this season. He should continue taking plenty of shots and rebounding at a high clip tonight. His biggest issue is shooting efficiency. If Johnson’s shots are falling, he will turn in a great fantasy performance. Awesemo currently projects Johnson to lead the Spurs in scoring tonight.

C Isaiah Roby — Grades: C, C | Values: A, A

The Thunder frontcourt is once again shorthanded, which points to Isaiah Roby picking up another start. Roby continues to have a near-minimum salary, allowing for a pay-up for a start on the slate. This is because these past two performances have not been astounding. Last game he played only 19 minutes due to foul trouble. Awesemo projects him to play 23.5 minutes tonight, which should provide a bit more confidence on his ability to exceed value. If Roby continues to start for the next week or so, he will have a good fantasy performance, and his salary makes him safe and gives him upside tonight.
