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

From a raw points perspective, Jokic remains the king. He has been one of the best fantasy producers for a while now, but he has taken his game to another level recently. He is averaging a stout 1.86 DraftKings points per minute over the past month, and he has scored at least 61.5 DraftKings points in six of his past seven games. The only exception was a 49.5-DraftKings-point performance in his last outing, but he was limited to just 26.1 minutes in a blowout win. That means his per-minute production was still elite, and he should return to his usual fantasy scoring numbers in a more competitive game.

Jokic has gotten a bit expensive, but he still stands out as a strong value relative to some of the other studs on the slate. Not only is he projected for nearly 15 more fantasy points than any other player, but he has the top value rating on the Big Board for any player priced above $8,300 on DraftKings and $7,400 on FanDuel.

Kevin Love, PF/C, Cleveland Cavaliers

DraftKings Value Rating: 97 | FanDuel Value Rating: 89

The DFS community has not been this excited to play Love since his final season with the Timberwolves. He was one of the best fantasy big men in the league back then, averaging 26.1 points per game and 12.5 rebounds. Love has shown some glimpses of his former dominant self this season. He has not played heavy minutes, but he has been dominant when he has been on the court. He is averaging 1.45 DraftKings points per minute over the past month, which trails only Jokic on Wednesday’s slate.

The door is open for Love to see some additional minutes against the Celtics. Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen are both sidelined due to health and safety protocols, and Love is projected for 27.3 minutes. He can do some serious damage with that much playing time. Love currently has the fifth-highest boom rate in the Boom/Bust Tool, but he is projected for the highest ownership on DraftKings. Still, he is a tough fade on Wednesday’s slate.

Delon Wright, PG, Atlanta Hawks

DraftKings Value Rating: 98 | FanDuel Value Rating: 98

The Hawks are also going to be playing short-handed on Wednesday. They are going to be particularly thin in the backcourt after ruling out Trae Young and Lou Williams for health and safety protocols. That leaves Wright as the presumed starting point guard. That is a role he can thrive in. He has not been a great per-minute producer this season, averaging just 0.75 DraftKings points per minute, but he has been excellent with big minutes in the past. Wright played at least 28 minutes in 29 games last season, and he racked up an average of 34.34 DraftKings points in those games. Wright is also providing some value in the player prop market. The Awesemo Player Prop tool gives him a 72% chance of hitting the over on his scoring prop, making it one of the most profitable wagers on the slate.
