Below are some NBA daily fantasy options that stand out for tonight’s slate using Awesemo Boom/Bust Tool and NBA DFS projections.
Boom/Bust NBA Daily Fantasy Projections | DraftKings & FanDuel Lineups
Boom: Cameron Johnson — $4,300 DraftKings/$5,000 FanDuel
58.6% DraftKings Boom/35.4% FanDuel Boom
The Suns look to be shorthanded tonight. JaVale McGee, Deandre Ayton, Frank Kaminsky, Cameron Payne and Jae Crowder are all ruled out. As a result, Cameron Johnson is projected to play 35 minutes tonight. At his cheap salary, his upside is high, as he has been about a 0.8 NBA DFS point per minute player this season. The Awesemo Boom/Bust Tool gives him the best overall boom percentage on DraftKings and the third-highest on FanDuel tonight.
Boom: Hassan Whiteside — $6,600 DraftKings/$5,500 FanDuel
31.9% DraftKings Boom/52% FanDuel Boom
Rudy Gobert is out for the Jazz tonight, putting Hassan Whiteside firmly in play. He also gets to face off against a Suns team that is thin in their frontcourt. Whiteside has started his past four games, averaging 11.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in just over 30 minutes. Given the matchup and his price, the Awesemo Boom/Bust Tool gives him the best overall boom percentage on FanDuel and the seventh-best on DraftKings.

Boom: Nikola Jokic — $12,400 DraftKings/$11,800 FanDuel
37.7% DraftKings Boom/35.2% FanDuel Boom
If you’re looking to pay up for one star tonight, it is tough to argue against Nikola Jokic. He is one assist away from having a triple-double in five of his past six games. Jokic is coming off a 28-point, 21-rebound game. He faces the Nets tonight. Obviously, the Nets are a good team that can be beaten down low, which shapes up great for Jokic tonight. Awesemo projects him as the top overall player on the slate tonight.
Bust: Kemba Walker — $6,300 DraftKings/$4,800 FanDuel
78% DraftKings Bust/50.3% FanDuel Bust
Kemba Walker has returned to the Knicks’ lineup. However, it is clear they are being conservative with the veteran guard. He played 21 and 20 minutes in his last two games, leading to scoring outputs of only five and eight. With raw points driving Walker’s fantasy point production, it is wise to sit him against a team like the Heat tonight.
