Let us dive into some of the options that are popping in the and on the NBA Big Board daily fantasy rankings for the 10-game main slate on DraftKings and FanDuel tonight.

NBA Daily Fantasy Rankings & DFS Projections Today

Giannis Antetokounmpo, F/C, Milwaukee Bucks

DraftKings Points Rating: 99 | FanDuel Points Rating: 99

Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the top studs in fantasy basketball, and he is only getting better. He has upped his fantasy production to 1.77 DraftKings points per minute this season, and he has increased his usage rate, assist rate and rebound rate through his first three games. That makes him even more dangerous from a fantasy perspective. He should continue to carry an increased workload given the Bucks’ current injury situation. Jrue Holiday and Brook Lopez are both sidelined, and Giannis increased his fantasy production with both players off the court last year. There is no reason to think that will not continue to 2021-22.

Finally, Giannis gets an excellent matchup with the Timberwolves. They have played at the fifth-fastest pace to start the year, and the Bucks’ implied team total of 118.5 is the top mark on the slate. Giannis is projected for more fantasy points than every other player on the slate, and no one is within even 8 points on DraftKings. He figures to be one of the highest-owned players on the slate, but he is a tough fade.

De’Anthony Melton, G, Memphis Grizzlies

DraftKings Value Rating: 95 | FanDuel Value Rating: 82

Melton has been an excellent source of fantasy value to start the year, averaging 31.5 DraftKings points through his first three games. He has started each of those contests and has played around 30 minutes per game, and Melton has always been the type of player who can average more than a fantasy point per minute. He has averaged 1.03 DraftKings points per minute through his first three games, so he should continue to succeed given his current role with the squad.

Melton has been priced up a bit across the industry, but he still stands out as an excellent value. He is one of the best values on the slate at $5,000 on DraftKings – he leads all players with a Value Rating of 95 – and he is a viable value play on FanDuel as well. Melton is another player who figures to be popular on Wednesday, but no one has a higher Optimal Lineup percentage in Awesemo’s Boom/Bust Tool.

Terrence Ross, G/F, Orlando Magic

DraftKings Leverage Rating: 60 | FanDuel Leverage Rating: 59

Ross is an interesting option on Wednesday’s slate. He is not popping as an elite leverage option on the Big Board, but he is grading extremely favorably in the Boom/Bust Tool. He is projected for moderate ownership across the industry, but he still has a far greater optimal lineup percentage than projected ownership. Ross also stands out as an excellent target in the prop market. The Awesemo Player Prop Tool gives him a 70% chance of hitting the over on his current scoring prop, making it one of the most profitable wagers on the slate.
