It’s only a small five-game slate on Thursday’s NBA Dream11 slate, but there is plenty to be excited about. When creating lineups it’s important to find value spots that open up space to fit the superstars in. Below are some of my favorite Dream11 NBA picks for daily fantasy lineups based on Awesemo’s expert grades and values. Be sure to check out Alex “Awesemo” Baker’s industry-leading NBA Dream11 projections.
Dream11 NBA Picks: Awesemo Grades | March 25
PG Jordan Poole – 6.5 Credits, 33.67 Projected Fantasy Points
PG Tyrese Haliburton – 7 Credits, 32.26 Projected Fantasy Points
Both of these guys are in the same game, so I’ll condense space and lump them together. The game flow in this game is quite appealing, as the total increased 2.5 points up to 226.5 from the open.
If I had to choose one or the other, I would agree with Awesemo’s projections and go with Poole. The Kings are playing their second game in as many nights, and they’re on a string of five games in seven days. While Haliburton’s younger legs may get more minutes, I believe Poole will be much more effective. Poole will be soaking up a lot of the usage vacated by Stephen Curry and is slightly cheaper.

PF Julius Randle – 17.5 Credits, 47.62 Projected Fantasy Points
Instead of dominating the Wizards down low on Tuesday, Randle took his act to the perimeter. He tied a season high with seven 3-pointers en route to dropping 37 — his second-highest point total of the season. Randle only finished with six rebounds and two assists, but it came in a Knicks blowout win.
The point is that Randle can dominate Washington whichever way he likes. Some may say the Wizards will solely focus on him tonight and make other Knicks beat them, which may be true. However, I don’t think it will matter. The Wizards have been getting pounced down low all season. In the previous matchup a little more than a month ago, Randle went bananas for 24 points and 18 rebounds; in another game last season he roasted them for 30 points and 16 rebounds.
C Montrezl Harrell – 10.5 Credits, 39.73 Projected Fantasy Points
After surviving the trade deadline, Harrell should be able to take advantage of a decent matchup tonight. And this is a guy we want in our lineups, as Awesemo has Harrell projected to score the 10th-most fantasy points while coming in at a very affordable 10.5 Credits.
The 76ers – Lakers battle has the highest total increase of any game on the slate, going from 211.5 to 215. While a 215 total isn’t anything to alert the country about, it does have some sneaky appeal on this short five-game slate. The Lakers really disappointed the masses on Tuesday night, so it will be interesting to see if they can forgive Harrell quickly.
Philadelphia has allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing centers this season. However, Joel Embiid is out and the 76ers just traded away Tony Bradley this afternoon. That puts them at a significant disadvantage down low, and Harrell will be there to benefit.
