Getting Older is Taking Its Toll on Marcin Gortat


He is the number #50 ranked center and the #305 ranked player overall. His value would have been higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he is the #48 center. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 15 games he averaged 14.4 FPs and that declined to 11.2 in his final 16 games. A fast start and slow end is somewhat expected given his age. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Gortat can be considered a consistent fantasy player. Our projected ceiling for Gortat when he 'goes off' is 32 fantasy points (his average is 12.9FPs).
