FREE NBA Daily Fantasy Rankings from Awesemo’s Premium Big Board Tool Today | Nikola Jokic 11/19/21




The NBA DFS Big Board is a one-stop shop for building lineups. It gives each player on the slate a Points Rating, Value Rating and Leverage Rating on a scale from 1 to 100, which allows you to easily decipher some of the top options on the slate. Let’s dive into some of the NBA daily fantasy rankings using the Big Board and Awesemo’s NBA Projections.

NBA Daily Fantasy Rankings & Big Board Projections

Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets

DraftKings Points Rating: 99 | FanDuel Points Rating: 99

The stud options on Friday’s slate seem massively overpriced on DraftKings, but that is not an issue at the moment. The Warriors have provided plenty of value on this slate – more on that later – so you should be able to jam an overpriced stud into your lineup.

Jokic is currently questionable with a wrist injury, but he stands out as the top option if he is active. He leads all players in terms of raw points projections, and he has been the best player in fantasy to start the year. He has averaged 1.82 DraftKings points per minute, which is the top mark on the slate by a considerable margin.

Most people are expected to gravitate towards James Harden if they are paying up for someone on this slate, making Jokic pop in the Boom/Bust Probability tool. He has nearly the same optimal lineup percentage as Harden, but he is projected for approximately 10% less ownership. Overall, Jokic is one of the most positively leveraged plays on the slate on DraftKings, making him an elite option for guaranteed prize pools.

Jalen Brunson, PG/SG, Dallas Mavericks

DraftKings Value Rating: 97 | FanDuel Points Rating: 96

Brunson is not the same slam-dunk value that he was on Wednesday, but he still stands out as an outstanding option. Luka Doncic will miss his second straight game, and Brunson has averaged a stout 1.22 DraftKings points per minute with Doncic off the court this season. He thrived in his first full game without Doncic, racking up 42.25 DraftKings points over 36.8 minutes. His 26.2% usage rate was his second-highest mark of the year, and he also recorded nine rebounds and nine assists.

Brunson also stands out in the player prop market. His scoring prop is set at just 17.5 points, and the Awesemo Player Prop tool gives him a 70% chance of hitting the over on that number. That makes it the most profitable scoring prop on the entire slate.

Latest NBA DFS Content

Nemanja Bjelica, PF, Golden State Warriors

DraftKings Value Rating: 100 | FanDuel Value Rating: 99

The Warriors are going to be a huge source of value on Friday. They will be without their highest usage player in Steph Curry, and they have also ruled out Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, and Otto Porter. That opens up a ton of minutes and shot attempts for the rest of the roster.

Bjelica is someone who figures to be a big beneficiary. He has been an excellent producer on a per-minute basis this season, averaging 1.12 DraftKings points per minute, and he is currently projected for 25.6 minutes. That should be more than enough for him to pay off his minimal salary across the industry.

Jordan Poole, Gary Payton II, and Juan Toscano-Anderson are also popping on the Big Board as strong values on Friday’s slate, and using three or four members of the Warriors will likely be a popular strategy.
