Is Clarkson Worth More than Collison in Fantasy?


As of 1/18, Jordan Clarkson is the #51 ranked guard based on ownership percentage (77%). Our projections indicate that Jordan Clarkson is overrated by the market. His fantasy guard projection rank is #56. He is the lowest rated of the 4 guards (Eric Gordon, Darren Collison, Kent Bazemore) with this market rank (77% Owned). He is projected for 745 fantasy points in 37 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Jordan Clarkson behind Batum and above Collison but the projections rank Collison over Jordan Clarkson. His strength is scoring, and if he could improve from 3pt range his value would increase. But sharing the ball and accumulating defensive stats need improvement.
