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, Denver Nuggets, C

DraftKings Points Rating: 99 | FanDuel Points Rating: 99

Friday’s matchup between the Nuggets and Bucks has the potential to be a heavyweight DFS showdown. Jokic and Giannis Antetokounmpo are the two best players in fantasy, and they own the two highest raw point projections in Awesemo’s NBA Projections. Jokic has a higher projection than Giannis, which is rare. Unfortunately, Jokic is questionable for the Nuggets after missing the past three games. If he can return to the lineup, he would be worth heavy consideration on this slate. His ownership projection is very modest across the industry — 5.3% on DraftKings, 1% on FanDuel — and targeting a player like Jokic at low ownership is always appealing. He is popping at a much higher rate as far as optimal lineup percentage, making him one of the most positively leveraged players using the Boom/Bust Tool.

Wendell Carter Jr., Orlando Magic, PF/C

DraftKings Value Rating: 86 | FanDuel Value Rating: 84

Carter stands out as one of the best sources of value on Friday’s slate. His playing time has been inconsistent recently, but he racked up 32.1 minutes in his last game. He is averaging 1.1 DraftKings points per minute this season, so Carter is going to be a massive bargain if he sees that much playing time moving forward. That is a distinct possibility given the team’s injury situation. Cole Anthony and E’Twaun Moore remain out of the lineup, while Terrence Ross is questionable. They also still have three players rehabbing long-term injuries, so there are plenty of minutes available at the moment.

The only real issue with Carter is his ownership. He is projected to have more than 31% ownership on DraftKings and 46% on FanDuel, which ranks first on both sites. His optimal lineup rate is not nearly as high in Awesemo’s Boom/Bust Tool, so he is an exciting fade candidate in guaranteed prize pools. However, he should be a staple of cash game lineups.

Malik Beasley, Minnesota Timberwolves, SG/SF

The Timberwolves are another team that should provide some value on Friday. Patrick Beverley left their last game with an injury, and he is expected to miss at least two weeks. Beasley started the second half in place of Beverley on Wednesday, so he is the leading candidate to replace him on Friday. If that happens, he is undoubtedly underpriced at $3,900 on DraftKings. Beasley played 37.5 minutes in that contest, and he responded with 39.25 DraftKings points. Both of those numbers are on the high side of what to expect on Friday, but he has plenty of wiggle room at his current price tag.

Beasley could also provide some value in the prop market. His rebounding prop is set at just 2.5, and the Awesemo Player Prop tool gives him a 72% chance of hitting the over.
