NBA Daily Fantasy Rankings from Awesemo’s Premium Big Board Tool Today | Guillermo Hernangomez 12/23/21




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 us 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: 100 | FanDuel Points Rating: 99

Jokic is coming off his worst game in ages on Wednesday. He finished with just 29.25 DraftKings points, which was easily his worst mark of the season. He was limited to just 24.9 minutes in a blowout loss, but his per-minute production was still way below what we’ve become accustomed to.

However, there’s no reason for worry moving forward. Before Wednesday’s outing, Jokic had racked up at least 61.5 DraftKings points in six of his previous seven outings. He’s also averaged an elite 1.82 DraftKings points per minute, which is the top mark on the slate by a sizable margin.

Jokic leads all players in terms of raw points in our NBA Projections, and he also stands out as one of the better values among the stud tier. He owns the top value rating on the Big Board for all players priced above $7,300 on DraftKings and $7,400 on FanDuel. There are plenty of values to pair with Jokic on Thursday, so he shouldn’t be too tough to fit in your lineups.

Guillermo Hernangomez, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans

DraftKings Value Rating: 100 | FanDuel Value Rating: 100

The only downside of Jokic on Thursday is that using him at center means you can’t use Hernangomez there. However, Hernangomez has PF eligibility on FanDuel, and you can utilize two centers thanks to the utility spot on DraftKings.

That’s great news for fantasy players. Hernangomez stands out as an elite value across the industry. He’s been one of the best centers in fantasy on a per-minute basis — he’s averaged 1.38 DraftKings points per minute this season — and he should see a boost in playing time with Jonas Valanciunas out of the lineup. We currently have him projected for more than 28 minutes, making him an absolute smash at his current salary.

Hernangomez also owns elite marks in the Boom/Bust Probability tool. He owns an 84.1% boom rate on DraftKings compared to a 1.7% bust rate. He’s also popping in the optimal lineup rate at 56.1%. Hernangomez projects to be the highest-owned player on the slate by a sizable margin, but he’s an extremely tough fade.

Latest NBA DFS Content

Delon Wright, PG, Atlanta Hawks

DraftKings Value Rating: 99 | FanDuel Value Rating: 98

Wright is another outstanding source of value. He racked up 38.6 minutes on Wednesday, and he responded with 26.25 DraftKings points. That was enough for him to return value, but there’s still plenty of room for improvement moving forward. Wright has played at least 30 minutes in 27 games since the start of last season, and he’s averaged 35.16 DraftKings points in those contests.

Wright is currently projected for less ownership than teammate Cam Reddish, but he grades out far more favorably in the Boom/Bust Probability tool.

He’s also an excellent option in the player prop market. The Awesemo Player Prop tool gives him a 65% chance of hitting the over on his scoring prop and a 71% chance of hitting the over on his assist prop. That makes both wagers very appealing on Thursday’s slate.
