Is Thompson Worth More than Allen in Fantasy?

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Both the market and projections have the exact same expectations for Tristan Thompson. As of 1/18, Tristan Thompson is the #20 ranked center based on ownership percentage (91%). Projections also rank him #20. He is projected for 714 fantasy points in 36 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #19 highest average. The market ranks Tristan Thompson behind Allen and above Lopez but the projections rank these players in reverse order. His value could significantly increase if he was more of an offensive threat, especially from three-point range. But he does do better in the other areas of the game.
