NBA Daily Fantasy Picks Based on Awesemo Grades & Values | 11/2/21




After a big slate yesterday, there is a small NBA daily fantasy lineup of five games on the schedule tonight. There is a bit of NBA DFS injury news yet to come out, so be sure to check the Awesemo NBA Starting Lineups page to see who is in, who is out and who is starting as news breaks, and look at the NBA DFS rankings and projections for both DraftKings and FanDuel lineups tonight.

NBA Daily Fantasy Picks: Awesemo Grades | Nov. 2

*Grades are ordered DraftKings, FanDuel. Initial grade indicates a player’s strength of output, with the value grade indicating their strength as a play in relation to their salary.

C Bam Adebayo — Grades: A, A | Values: A, B

The only player who currently matches an A grade with an A value is Bam Adebayo on DraftKings, where is a $1,000 discount from FanDuel. While he is currently listed as questionable, he was a full participant in shootaround on Monday and is expected to go tonight. Adebayo is coming off a 26-point, 19-rebound performance. Tonight he gets to face a Dallas frontcourt that ranks 25th in fantasy points surrendered to the position, per Fantasy Cruncher. Adebayo also has five straight double-doubles against Dallas, and he was one rebound shy of a triple-double in the previous meeting.

SF Dorian Finney-Smith — Grades: B, B | Values: A, A

The Mavericks have already ruled out Maxi Kleber tonight, and it is a possibility that Kristaps Porzingis will miss another game. Pair those absences with the strong Heat defense focusing on Luka Doncic, and it looks to be a game where Dorian Finney-Smith will be asked to step up on the offensive end of the floor. While he does not offer a massive ceiling, his minutes and usage should make him a strong value play. Awesemo’s projections agree, projecting Finney-Smith to be the team’s second-leading scorer (15.64), even with Porzingis projected for 32 minutes.

SG Pat Connaughton — Grades: B, B | Values: A, A

The injured Bucks became even more short-handed with Khris Middleton being ruled out due to health and safety protocols. This moved Pat Connaughton to the starting lineup, though it was not met with success due to a tough matchup against Utah. However, the matchup against Detroit today is clearly much easier, so look for Connaughton to take advantage. While he is known as a shooter, one of the best parts of his game is his rebounding ability. The Pistons will miss plenty of shots tonight, so look for Connaughton to have quite a few boards. Awesemo’s projections have Connaughton projected for 6.42 rebounds and the second-most points on the team.

PG George Hill — Grades: C, C | Values: A, A

George Hill is another player that does not have a massive ceiling, but he is extremely steady and a great value option, especially on DraftKings where he is only $3,800. With Jrue Holiday out, Hill has been starting and playing over 30 minutes. Without Middleton, look for Hill to shoot a bit more, which is a good thing for the Bucks and a great thing for anyone playing him for salary relief tonight. Awesemo’s projections have Hill projected for over 14 points.
