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
Giannis Antetokounmpo, F/C, Milwaukee Bucks
DraftKings Points Rating: 98 | FanDuel Points Rating: 99
Antetokounmpo leads Awesemo’s projections on Monday’s slate, just like he does virtually every time he is in action. Giannis has gotten expensive recently – he is up to $12,000 on DraftKings and $11,700 on FanDuel – but he has been worth every penny recently. He has scored at least 66.25 DraftKings points in three straight games, including 74.0 DraftKings points in his last outing. Overall, his average of 1.74 DraftKings points per minute is the top mark among today’s players. His big game came against the Magic, and he will be facing the Magic again on Monday. It is a matchup he can definitely take advantage of, with the Magic ranking just 28th in defensive efficiency. The Bucks are implied for 115.75 points, which is the second-highest mark on the slate. Giannis’ price tag is expected to keep his ownership reasonable, making him an excellent option in guaranteed prize pools.
One of Giannis’ teammates is showing up highly in the Awesemo Boom/Bust tool. Find out who that is by checking out Alex Hunter’s NBA DFS Boom/Bust Picks today.
Georges Niang, SF/PF, Philadelphia 76ers
DraftKings Value Rating: 98 | FanDuel Points Rating: 92
The 76ers stand out as a strong potential source of value on Monday’s slate. Joel Embiid remains out of the lineup due to health and safety protocols, and Ben Simmons is away from the team. Tobias Harris is also considered “unlikely to play,” leaving the team without their top three scorers. The 76ers also have an exploitable matchup against the Kings, who rank merely 26th in defensive efficiency.
Most of the members of the 76ers have been priced up recently, but Niang is an exception. He is reasonably priced across the industry, and he should see a good number of minutes. He has averaged 0.83 DraftKings points per minute this season, so he is capable of taking advantage of some extra playing time. Niang is showing up in the optimal lineup 31.7% of the time on DraftKings in the Boom/Bust Tool, which is the top mark on the slate by a sizable margin.

Chimezie Metu, PF/C, Sacramento Kings
DraftKings Value Rating: 87 | FanDuel Value Rating: 94
Metu stands out as arguably the best source of value on FanDuel. He has been excellent when on the floor this season, averaging 0.96 FanDuel points per minute, and he has seen a solid handful of minutes recently. His playing time was cut a bit short in a blowout loss in the Kings’ last game, but he had logged at least 24.4 minutes in each of his previous four. That should be more than enough playing time for him to return value. Metu also stands out as a strong option in the player prop market. The Awesemo Player Prop Tool gives him a 66% chance of hitting the over on 9.5 points, making it one of the most profitable wagers of the day.
