Eric Gordon Is (Not) a Must Start in Week 15?


When compared to other guards in week 15, Dwyane Wade (75.1 FP), J.J. Redick (72.5 FP), Derrick Rose (87.4 FP), D.J. Augustin (83.9 FP), and Nicolas Batum (42.7 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Gordon but are starting in more leagues. Starting in 16% of leagues he is expected to produce 59.3 fantasy points (WK 15). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #66 guard of week 15. He is projected to be better than that (the #28 guard). His per game projected FP average is 22.3 which is better than his actual per game average (16.5). In addition to a solid projected FP average, he will benefit from playing 4 games.

He is projected for 89 fantasy points in week 15 (#28 G) in 4 games.

    His latest projection based rank among guards is #49. Ranking by ownership percentage (77%), Eric Gordon is expected to be the #53 guard for the rest of the season. With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Eric Gordon to be undervalued. Even as an established quality fantasy option, if he lives up to projections he is still undervalued and there could be an opportunity to buy 'low'. Unless someone offers an even better guard value, we advise you to hold on to him. There are other guards with virtually the same market rank (Darren Collison, Kent Bazemore, Jordan Clarkson 77% Owned) and Gordon ranks #2 out of 4. He is projected for 799 fantasy points in 38 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#53) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Eric Gordon behind Collison and above Bazemore and the projections agree. 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, especially from three-point range. But he is not expected to pass very often.

    Gordon is not in the 1/18 DFS player pool, but one player who is in the Sportsline FanDuel optimal lineup is DeMar DeRozan, and Joe Ingles is in the DraftKings optimal lineup.
