FREE NBA Daily Fantasy Rankings from Awesemo’s Premium Big Board Tool Today | Giannis Antetokounmpo 11/9/21




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

Giannis Antetokounmpo, F/C, Milwaukee Bucks

DraftKings Points Rating: 99 | FanDuel Points Rating: 99

The Bucks are one of six teams in action on Tuesday, and unsurprisingly, Antetokounmpo has the top raw points projection on the slate. Antetokounmpo has been up and down to start the year, but that has more to do with inconsistent minutes than his productivity. He has been outstanding when on the court, averaging 1.74 DraftKings points per minute. Antetokounmpo was already the top per-minute producer in the league, and he has increased his usage, assist and rebound rates this season.

He is in an interesting spot Tuesday against the 76ers. They have played at the slowest pace in the league, which has made them a dreadful matchup for fantasy purposes. However, their defense has also historically been much more vulnerable with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons off the court. That means Antetokounmpo could still find some success in this matchup.

He is easy to jam into your lineups today on FanDuel, where the options are limited and the cap space abundant. The tougher question is how to approach him on DraftKings. He is currently projected for 38.3% ownership, and he is popping in the optimal lineup 35.8% of the time in Awesemo’s Boom/Bust Probability Tool. That makes him a neutral option from a leverage perspective.

Giannis always looks like one of the best options on any slate, but Adam Scherer wrote about Giannis’ outlook for tonight’s matchup against the 76ers in his NBA DFS Deep Dive. This is the industry’s most in-depth daily fantasy basketball analysis article and breaks down all of the best players in each matchup.

Andre Drummond, C, Philadelphia 76ers

DraftKings Value Rating: 100 | FanDuel Points Rating: 100

Drummond is significantly more expensive across the industry than he was on yesterday’s slate, but he is still popping as an elite value. He has scored at least 50.5 FanDuel points in both starts in place of Embiid this season, and he played a whopping 38.4 minutes for the short-handed 76ers on Monday. Drummond has always been an elite per-minute producer, and he has averaged 1.35 DraftKings points per minute this season. Overall, Drummond has the fourth-highest median projection on DraftKings and the second highest on FanDuel.

Ultimately, he is projected for slightly less ownership than he was on yesterday’s slate, but he is showing up nearly at the same optimal lineup rate. He does have a bit more bust potential at his current price tag, but it would likely take an injury or an ejection to keep him from returning value. Drummond is also popping in the Awesemo Player Prop tool. It gives him a massive 85% chance of hitting the over on his rebounding prop, making it one of the most profitable wagers of the young season.

Bobby Portis, PF/C, Milwaukee Bucks

DraftKings Value Rating: 95 | FanDuel Value Rating: 89

Portis is another excellent source of value on today’s slate. Like Drummond, he has also been priced up after moving into the starting lineup in his last game. Still, Portis is too cheap if he earns another start on Tuesday. Portis has seen at least 26 minutes of playing time in 11 games as a member of the Bucks, and he has averaged 36.34 DraftKings points in those contests. He saw more than 30 minutes in his last game, and Awesemo projects him for 27.8. If he hits that threshold, it is going to be tough for him to bust. Expect the Portis/Drummond combination to be extremely popular, but it is tough to fade either player on this slate.
