NBA DFS Picks: Deeper Dive + Live Before Lock | 5/26

Daily Fantasy Basketball Tools

NBA Projections

Our NBA DFS projections are managed by Alex Baker and updated throughout the day as more information becomes available up until the last game tips. Projections are an integral part of a winning process for NBA DFS and using Awesemo’s projections provides you a system that’s proven to win money in tournaments over several seasons of action.

NBA Rankings

These NBA Rankings rankings for fantasy points and value are derived directly from my own fantasy NBA projections. Roster players with solid value rankings and spend most, if not all of your salary to build competitive lineups for your leagues.

NBA Boom/Bust Tool

In all DFS sports, being able to compare the strength of a player each day versus their popularity is key to success. In NBA, correlations between players are less valuable so the strength of each play can be considered individually. For each player, I calculate the standard deviation based on a variety of factors and use that to calculate the ceiling (75th-percentile performance) the floor (25th-percentile performance) and the probability that they will bust (not meeting value) or boom (value plus 10 points). Combining these metrics, you will be able to gain an edge on everyone by identifying under-owned or over-owned players.

NBA Ownership Projections

Initial ownership percentages are posted daily by 1:00 p.m. EST and are updated every two hours throughout the day with a final update occurring 30 minutes before lock. Note that last-minute injury reports will impact not only the injured players’ or their replacements’ ownership, but can affect overall roster construction.

I've been obsessed with fantasy sports since as long as I can remember. Back in 1993, while seated in the last row of Mr. MacMillan's math class, I'm fairly certain a few buddies of mine and I invented daily fantasy sports -- popping down our fivers and using nothing more than a newspaper box score, we'd make our NHL player picks for the night's action. Twenty years later I started out playing DFS on DraftStreet, when three-max tourneys with 490 people were a big deal, and I've been hooked ever since. More than anything, I'm interested in using my technical writing skills to articulate and clarify our content in order to help you become a better fantasy sports players player. Armed with Awesemo's grades and the projections from our experts, we're here to help you take the next step. You can contact me by emailing [email protected].
