    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    There are 9 centers owned in 100% of leagues and Joel Embiid is projected to be the #4 among them. Using actual fantasy production and current start percentage as the first and second tie-breaker, his market rank is #4. He is fairly rated as a below average (among 100% owned) center. He is projected for 455 fantasy points in 11 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #1 highest average. The market ranks Joel Embiid behind Vucevic and above Drummond but the projections rank these players in reverse order. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 2 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. Scoring is his strength but he has areas he could improve on to become a more well-rounded fantasy center.

    Embiid is not in the 3/18 DFS player pool, but one player who is in the Sportsline projection model FanDuel optimal lineup for both FanDuel and DraftKings is Steven Adams.
