NBA Daily Fantasy Rankings & DFS Projections Today

Luka Doncic, G/F, Dallas Mavericks

DraftKings Points Rating: 99 | FanDuel Points Rating: 98

Doncic is one of the top players in fantasy basketball, and he has the potential to be even more productive on Thursday. Kristaps Porzingis is questionable with a back injury, and it would not be a surprise if the team holds him out given his extensive injury history. Doncic has increased his production to 1.68 DraftKings points per minute with Porzingis off the court this season, which represents an increase from his average of 1.57 over the past year.

Even if Porzingis is active, very few players on Thursday’s slate can match Doncic from a raw points perspective. Only Stephen Curry is projected within 8 points of him on DraftKings and 5 points of him on FanDuel.

Montrezl Harrell, PF/C, Washington Wizards

DraftKings Value Rating: 100 | FanDuel Value Rating: 100

Harrell is expected to be the chalk on today’s slate. He has the top ownership projection on both DraftKings and FanDuel, and no one is even that close. There is a time where fading that chalk is the right strategy, but this does not seem like one of those situations in cash games. Harrell is an awesome producer on a per-minute basis – he has averaged 1.11 DraftKings points per minute over the past year – and he is seeing plenty of playing time with the Wizards at the moment. He logged 38.2 minutes yesterday against the Celtics, and that does not figure to change with Daniel Gafford out of the lineup on Thursday.

However, the equation is a bit different in tournaments. Harrell’s optimal lineup percentage using the Boom/Bust Probability Tool is significantly lower than his projected ownership, giving him the worst leverage score on the entire slate.

Mitchell Robinson, C, New York Knicks

DraftKings Leverage Rating: TBD | FanDuel Leverage Rating: TBD

If fading Harrell, Robinson stands out as an intriguing pivot. He has not been particularly effective this season, averaging just 0.89 DraftKings points per minute, but that undersells his ability in that department. He has already racked up at least 35 DraftKings points in two of those games, which would represent nearly 7x value on his current salary.

One positive for Robinson is that his minutes have been up to start the year. Nerlens Noel has yet to suit up, and he will miss another game due to a sore left knee. If Robinson can stay out of foul trouble – which is a big if for him – he has the potential to play around 34 minutes against the Bulls. Overall, Robinson has one of the top leverage scores in the Boom/Bust Probability Tool on DraftKings, so he could be underappreciated on Thursday’s slate.
