NBA projections

Alex Baker manages our NBA DFS projections and updates them throughout the day as new information becomes available, right down to the latest playing tips. Projections are an integral part of a winning process for NBA DFS. Using Awesemo’s projections provides you with a proven system for making money in tournaments over multiple seasons of action.

NBA Rankings

These NBA rankings for fantasy points and value are directly derived from my own NBA fantasy projections. Choose players with solid value rankings and spend most, if not all, of your salary creating competitive rosters for your leagues.

NBA boom/bust tool

In all DFS sports, comparing a player’s strength every day against their popularity is the key to success. In the NBA, player correlations are less valuable, so the strength of each play can be considered individually. For each player, I calculate the standard deviation based on various factors. Then I use that to calculate the ceiling (performance at 75th percentile), the floor (performance at 25th percentile) and the probability that they will explode (value not reached) or explode (value plus 10 points). By combining these metrics, you will gain an edge over everyone else by identifying underheld or overheld players.

NBA Property Projections

Initial ownership percentages are posted daily at 1:00 p.m. EST and are updated every two hours throughout the day, with a final update 30 minutes before lockdown. Note that last minute injury reports will not only impact the ownership of injured players or their replacements, but may also affect the overall roster construction and therefore all other players on the roster.
