DAILY FANTASY VALUE

Projected for 12 FanDuel pts David Nwaba is the #27 ranked shooting guard. At $3500 he is expected to be the #30 shooting guard. Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Nwaba is worth $2.9K. There are 7 other options at $3500 (Nik Stauskas, Ian Clark, Caris LeVert, Tyrone Wallace, Rodney McGruder, Sindarius Thornwell, Grayson Allen) and Nwaba is ranked #2 among the 8. He is projected for more points than 3 higher priced options: Langston Galloway (10.3 FP), Treveon Graham (8.9 FP), and Luke Kennard (11.1 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 9.2 FPs, a value reached in 12 of 45 games (27%). The combined 'cover percentage' for shooting guards priced at $4.0K and above is 47%.

  • 1/18 MATCHUP: CLE @ UTA, CLE Vegas Line Expectation 99.8 Points (#13 most points for the day)
  • PROJECTION (POS RANK): 12 Fantasy Points (#27), 5.2 pts (#29), 3.1 reb (#13), 0.8 ast (#29), 0.6 stl (#21), 0.4 blk (#9), 0.3 3pt (#33), 0.5 turnovers (#29 most)

DRAFTKINGS VALUE: Projected for 12.1 DraftKings pts Nwaba is the #23 ranked shooting guard. At $3000 he is expected to be the #28 shooting guard. Using the salaries and projected points for healthy players in in today's pool to calculate expected points per dollar, Nwaba is worth $2.5K. Sindarius Thornwell is also priced at $3000, and Nwaba is a better option at this price. He is projected for more points than 4 higher priced options: Nik Stauskas (6.3 FP), Jonathon Simmons (7.2 FP), Luke Kennard (12 FP), and Wesley Iwundu (4.7 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 8.3 FPs, a value reached in 14 of 45 games (31%). The combined 'cover percentage' for shooting guards priced at $4.0K and above is 50%.

Nwaba is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. SportsLine.com also offers premium optimal lineups from Mike McClure, a professional DFS player who has over $1 million in career winnings. He uses his own proprietary model to find great DFS values and often differs from the computer in how a player is projected to play on a daily basis.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

When compared to other guards in week 15, Tony Parker (26.1 FP), Rajon Rondo (18 FP), Nik Stauskas (19.2 FP), Quinn Cook (25.3 FP), and Furkan Korkmaz (25.9 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Nwaba but are starting in more leagues. He is starting in no leagues and with a projected guard rank of #111 in week 15 it makes sense.

He is projected for 34 fantasy points in week 15 (#108 G) in 4 games.

    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    His latest projection based rank among guards is #127. Ranking by ownership percentage (1%), David Nwaba is expected to be the #138 guard for the rest of the season. Our projections indicate that David Nwaba is underrated by the market. While not a great fantasy option, he may be good for a spot start if you are in bind and with a market ranking this low, there could be a clear opportunity to acquire him via trade or waiver wire pick up. He is projected for 306 fantasy points in 37 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#133) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks David Nwaba behind Livingston and above Mykhailiuk but the projections rank David Nwaba over Livingston. With a better FP Total rank than Avg rank, his value will decrease once his remaining games evens out with other similarly rated players. His strength is scoring, and if he could improve from 3pt range his value would increase. But he is not expected to pass very often.
