The projections page also provides underlying data including each expected targets, Vegas lines, usage rates and much more.
NFL Ownership Projections (Premium) (posted on Wednesday mornings and updated throughout the week): As the competition becomes increasingly sophisticated, it’s not only important to know who the best plays are but also who the best players are that no one else talking about. Ownership projections provide you insight into where the “field” (other players) will land and how you can pivot away from over-owned and target under-owned players and give you the competitive advantage you need to take down large GPPs.
Awesemo’s NFL Rankings (Premium) (posted on Tuesdays and updated throughout the week): The world’s best DFS player releases his letter grade rankings for each and every fantasy-relevant player on the day’s slates.

Awesemo’s Premium Breakdown (Premium) (updated throughout the week): Alex Awesemo Baker’s weekly NFL stats-based article highlighting his favorite plays and stacks, relative to ownership. Part of success in NFL DFS is know 1) how likely a stack is going to be the highest scoring one on the slate and 2) how much ownership that stack is going to get. That way you know whether a stack is going over or under owned relative to their odds of success.

Equipped with Awesemo’s proprietary rankings and ownership projections, as well as Vegas implied totals, matchups and lineup information, this tool aggregates all the information you need to build your best lineup onto a single page.
