Justise Winslow and Dennis Schroder Should Be Owned in More Leagues

Welcome to the newly updated version of Scout. We have decided to embrace our name and re-launch as a sports forecasting and statistics service geared towards delivering Scouting Reports for every league, team and fantasy relevant player. Our league reports focus on Power Rankings, Injuries, Season Futures, and coverage of every Fantasy 'market' (season, current week, DFS). We encourage you to check out our new NBA page and hope you enjoy the new Scout.

Justise Winslow
 MIA 87% Own

Most already consider Justise Winslow to be a good starting forward, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. As of 2/11, Justise Winslow is the #44 ranked forward based on ownership percentage (87%). The projections have him 25 spots higher in the rankings. Even if he is highly owned, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better forward option available. He is projected for more FPs than Bojan Bogdanovic who has virtually the same market rank (87% Owned) as Winslow. He is projected for 745 fantasy points in 28 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#23) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Justise Winslow behind Bogdanovic and above Jackson but the projections rank Justise Winslow over Bogdanovic. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 6 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. 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 value could significantly increase if he was more of an offensive threat, especially from inside the three-point arc. But sharing the ball is a strength.

Dennis Schroder
 OKC 89% Own

Most already consider Dennis Schroder to be a good starting guard, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Based on ownership percentage (89%), Dennis Schroder has a market rank of #39 among guards. He is projected to be the #22 guard. Even if he is highly owned, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better guard option available. He is projected for more FPs than Joe Ingles who has virtually the same market rank (89% Owned) as Schroder. He is projected for 750 fantasy points in 27 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#23) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Dennis Schroder behind Rondo and above Ingles but the projections rank Dennis Schroder over Rondo. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 5 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. 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.

Draymond Green
 GS 98% Own

His latest projection based rank among forwards is #16. Based on ownership percentage (98%), Draymond Green has a market rank of #26 among forwards. With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Draymond Green 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 forward value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for more FPs than Nikola Mirotic who has virtually the same market rank (98% Owned) as Green. He is projected for 757 fantasy points in 27 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#21) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Draymond Green behind Love and above Mirotic but the projections rank Draymond Green over Love. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 3 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. 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 value could significantly increase if he was more of an offensive threat, especially from inside the three-point arc. But sharing the ball and accumulating defensive stats are strengths.

Cody Zeller
 CHA 25% Own

The projections say that Cody Zeller is an elite fantasy center worth starting most weeks. As of 2/11, Cody Zeller is the #33 ranked center based on ownership percentage (25%). The projections have him 11 spots higher in the rankings. There could be an opportunity to acquire him while the market is still not as high on them as the projections are. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better center option available. He is projected for 477 fantasy points in 27 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#23) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Cody Zeller behind Len and above Zizic but the projections rank Cody Zeller over Len. His value could significantly increase if he was more of an offensive threat, especially from inside the three-point arc. But sharing the ball is a strength.

Tomas Satoransky
 WAS 90% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (90%), Tomas Satoransky is expected to be the #34 guard for the rest of the season. Our projections indicate that Tomas Satoransky is underrated by the market. His fantasy guard projection rank is #26. Even if he is highly owned, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Unless someone offers an even better guard value, we advise you to hold on to him. Of the 5 guards (Rajon Rondo, J.J. Redick, Reggie Jackson, Evan Fournier) with this market rank (90% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 713 fantasy points in 26 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #24 highest average. The market ranks Tomas Satoransky behind Teague and above Fournier but the projections rank Tomas Satoransky over Teague. His value could significantly increase if he was more of an offensive threat, especially from three-point range. But sharing the ball is a strength.

Bad Fantasy Values for the Rest of the Season

Enes Kanter
 NY 80% Own

As of 2/11, Enes Kanter is the #20 ranked center based on ownership percentage (80%). Projected to be a backup center his value could reach market expectations if there is an injury to the starter. He is projected for 210 fantasy points in 24 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#51) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Enes Kanter behind Lopez and above Valanciunas but the projections rank Valanciunas over Enes Kanter. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 2 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. His strength is scoring, and if he could improve from 3pt range his value would increase. He gets assists as well, so it is his defensive stats that need improvement.

Serge Ibaka
 TOR 99% Own

His latest projection based rank among forwards is #33. Based on ownership percentage (99%), Serge Ibaka has a market rank of #21 among forwards. Serge Ibaka's market rank is better than our current projections indicate. He is projected for 610 fantasy points in 25 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #29 highest average. The market ranks Serge Ibaka behind Siakam and above Wiggins but the projections rank Wiggins over Serge Ibaka. With a better FP Avg rank than Total rank, his value will increase once his remaining games evens out with other similarly rated players.

Buddy Hield
 SAC 99% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (99%), Buddy Hield is expected to be the #24 guard for the rest of the season. The market is higher on Buddy Hield than the projections are so we consider him to be overvalued. His fantasy guard projection rank is #35. Louis Williams has virtually the same market rank (99% Owned) and is projected for more points than Hield. He is projected for 667 fantasy points in 26 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #32 highest average. The market ranks Buddy Hield behind Williams and above Richardson but the projections rank Richardson over Buddy Hield. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly better in 4 categories (strengths) than his overall fantasy point ranking. His strength is scoring, especially from three-point range. But sharing the ball and accumulating defensive stats need improvement.

Otto Porter
 CHI 97% Own

His latest projection based rank among forwards is #37. As of 2/11, Otto Porter is the #28 ranked forward based on ownership percentage (97%). Otto Porter's market rank is better than our current projections indicate. He is the lowest rated of the 3 forwards (Brandon Ingram, Domantas Sabonis) with this market rank (97% Owned). He is projected for 591 fantasy points in 26 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#38) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Otto Porter behind Mirotic and above Sabonis but the projections rank Sabonis over Otto Porter. Scoring is not necessarily a strength but it is not a weakness and he is considered a well-rounded forward who contributes equally in most key stats.

D`Angelo Russell
 BKN 100% Own

There are 22 guards owned in 100% of leagues and D`Angelo Russell is projected to be the #20 among them. Using actual fantasy production and current start percentage as the first and second tie-breaker, his market rank is #11. He can be considered overvalued and expect his ranking among 100% owned guards to go down. He is projected for 773 fantasy points in 25 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #20 highest average. The market ranks D`Angelo Russell behind Curry and above Fox but the projections rank Fox over D`Angelo Russell. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 4 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. His ranking in points is the same as his overall fantasy ranking indicating he is relatively well-rounded from a statistical standpoint.
