NBA Daily Fantasy Rankings & DFS Projections Today

Joel Embiid, C, Philadelphia 76ers

DraftKings Points Rating: 98 | FanDuel Points Rating: 98

Embiid has had a slow start to his season, finishing with 51.25 DraftKings points or less in each of his first five games. He has also dealt with right knee soreness, which has caused him to be questionable in each game besides the opener.

He is questionable once again for tonight’s matchup against the Knicks, but he has excellent upside if he is able to suit up. He has averaged 1.80 DraftKings points per minute with Ben Simmons off the court since the start of last season, and he logged a season-high 33.3 minutes in his previous outing.

Embiid has also been priced down to just $9,800 on DraftKings, and he should seldom be cheaper than $10,000. Luka Doncic is the only player projected for more fantasy points across the industry, and he is significantly more expensive. That makes Embiid a prime target.

Luguentz Dort, SG/SF, Oklahoma City Thunder

DraftKings Value Rating: 91 | FanDuel Value Rating: 83

Finding value on the slate today is tough. Only one player has a value rating greater than 85 on FanDuel per the Big Board, and only five players fit that description on DraftKings. Dort is one of those players. His playing time has been a bit volatile to start the year, but he is coming off 37.5 minutes in his last outing. The Thunder will be without Derrick Favors on Tuesday, which should solidify Dort’s workload against the Warriors. He averaged 0.88 DraftKings points per minute last season, making him an excellent option at his current price tag across the industry.

The Thunder also have more appeal than usual in this matchup. The Warriors have played at the second-fastest pace this season, and the Thunder are implied for 107 points. They have averaged just 93.3 points per game to start the year, so that is a pretty significant increase.

If looking for more ways to utilize Dort on Tuesday, consider backing him in the player prop market. The over on his scoring prop grades out favorably using the Awesemo Player Prop Tool.


Dejounte Murray, G, San Antonio Spurs

DraftKings Value Rating: 95 | FanDuel Value Rating: 84

Murray is not a value play in the traditional sense, but he still stands out as one of the best pure values on the slate. He is coming off a subpar outing in his last contest, but his usage rate was significantly lower than it was for his first two games. That makes him an excellent bounce-back option. He is currently projected for moderate ownership, but he is showing up in the optimal lineup at a high percentage using Awesemo’s Boom/Bust Probability Tool. That gives Murray one of the best leverage ratings on the slate.
