Gallinari 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.

    Ranking by ownership percentage (99%), Danilo Gallinari is expected to be the #18 forward for the rest of the season. Danilo Gallinari's market rank is better than our current projections indicate. His fantasy forward projection rank is #21. There are many other forwards with virtually the same market rank (DeMarcus Cousins, Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins, Nikola Mirotic, Domantas Sabonis, Lauri Markkanen, Kyle Kuzma 99% Owned) and Gallinari ranks #4 out of 8. He is projected for 971 fantasy points in 36 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#24) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Danilo Gallinari behind Collins and above Wiggins and the projections agree. His strength is scoring, especially from three-point range. But sharing the ball and accumulating defensive stats need improvement.
