Put Andrew Wiggins (99% Owned) On the Trading Block

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 93% Own

Most already consider Justise Winslow to be a good starting forward, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Based on ownership percentage (93%), Justise Winslow has a market rank of #36 among forwards. The projections have him 21 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. Of the 3 forwards (Robert Covington, Jaren Jackson Jr.) with this market rank (93% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 1135 fantasy points in 41 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#19) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Justise Winslow behind Jackson and above Covington but the projections rank Justise Winslow over Jackson. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 5 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.

DeMarcus Cousins
 GS 99% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (99%), DeMarcus Cousins is expected to be the #24 forward for the rest of the season. He is projected to be the #11 forward. 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 1239 fantasy points in 37 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks DeMarcus Cousins behind Mirotic and above Siakam but the projections rank DeMarcus Cousins over Mirotic. 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 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.

Tomas Satoransky
 WAS 87% Own

Most already consider Tomas Satoransky to be a good starting guard, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. As of 1/14, Tomas Satoransky is the #44 ranked guard based on ownership percentage (87%). The projections have him 19 spots higher in the rankings. 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'. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better guard option available. Of the 3 guards (Dennis Smith Jr., Bogdan Bogdanovic) with this market rank (87% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 1027 fantasy points in 38 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Tomas Satoransky behind Bogdanovic and above Smith but the projections rank Tomas Satoransky over Bogdanovic. 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.

Kris Dunn
 CHI 96% Own

His latest projection based rank among guards is #19. Based on ownership percentage (96%), Kris Dunn has a market rank of #30 among guards. Our projections indicate that Kris Dunn is underrated by the market. 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. Of the 4 guards (Derrick Rose, Spencer Dinwiddie, Lonzo Ball) with this market rank (96% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 1105 fantasy points in 39 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#23) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Kris Dunn behind Ball and above Dinwiddie but the projections rank Kris Dunn over Ball. 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 three-point range. But sharing the ball is a strength.

Pau Gasol
 SA 22% Own

The projections say that Pau Gasol is an elite fantasy center worth starting most weeks. Ranking by ownership percentage (22%), Pau Gasol is expected to be the #33 center for the rest of the season. His projection based center rank is #25. There could be a nice opportunity to acquire him before the market realizes he is undervalued. Unless someone offers an even better center value, we advise you to hold on to him. Of the 4 centers (Marcin Gortat, Kelly Olynyk, Luke Kornet) with this market rank (22% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 656 fantasy points in 38 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#27) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Pau Gasol behind Olynyk and above Kornet but the projections rank Pau Gasol over Olynyk. 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.

Bad Fantasy Values for the Rest of the Season

Andrew Wiggins
 MIN 99% Own

His latest projection based rank among forwards is #29. Ranking by ownership percentage (99%), Andrew Wiggins is expected to be the #20 forward for the rest of the season. Andrew Wiggins's market rank is better than our current projections indicate. He is projected for 949 fantasy points in 39 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Andrew Wiggins behind Kuzma and above Sabonis but the projections rank Sabonis over Andrew Wiggins. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 3 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 he is not expected to pass very often.

Serge Ibaka
 TOR 98% Own

Based on ownership percentage (98%), Serge Ibaka has a market rank of #27 among forwards. Serge Ibaka's market rank is better than our current projections indicate. His fantasy forward projection rank is #37. There are other forwards with virtually the same market rank (Paul Millsap, Kevin Love, Draymond Green, Pascal Siakam 98% Owned) and Ibaka ranks #4 out of 5. He is projected for 851 fantasy points in 37 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #35 highest average. The market ranks Serge Ibaka behind Green and above Millsap but the projections rank Millsap over Serge Ibaka. While scoring is his strength he contributes enough in other areas to be considered a well-rounded forward.

Buddy Hield
 SAC 99% Own

His latest projection based rank among guards is #29. Ranking by ownership percentage (99%), Buddy Hield is expected to be the #22 guard for the rest of the season. Buddy Hield's market rank is better than our current projections indicate. He is the lowest rated of the 5 guards (Chris Paul, C.J. McCollum, Josh Richardson, Trae Young) with this market rank (99% Owned). He is projected for 987 fantasy points in 39 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#30) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Buddy Hield behind McCollum and above Richardson but the projections rank Richardson over Buddy Hield. His strength is scoring, especially from three-point range. But sharing the ball and accumulating defensive stats need improvement.
