Put Jabari Parker (99% Owned) On the Trading Block

T.J. Warren
 PHO 95% Own

Most already consider T.J. Warren to be a good starting forward, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Based on ownership percentage (95%), T.J. Warren has a market rank of #37 among forwards. The projections have him 13 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'. Unless someone offers an even better forward value, we advise you to hold on to him. Of the 4 forwards (Otto Porter, Marvin Bagley III, Jaren Jackson Jr.) with this market rank (95% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 1461 fantasy points in 58 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#27) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks T.J. Warren behind Porter and above Bagley but the projections rank T.J. Warren over Porter. 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 sharing the ball and accumulating defensive stats need improvement.

John Collins
 ATL 98% Own

His latest projection based rank among forwards is #17. As of 12/6, John Collins is the #25 ranked forward based on ownership percentage (98%). With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider John Collins 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'. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better forward option available. He is projected for 1612 fantasy points in 57 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#21) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks John Collins behind Gallinari and above Sabonis but the projections rank John Collins over Gallinari. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 4 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.

Reggie Jackson
 DET 92% Own

As of 12/6, Reggie Jackson is the #38 ranked guard based on ownership percentage (92%). With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Reggie Jackson to be undervalued. 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. He is projected for 1571 fantasy points in 60 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#31) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Reggie Jackson behind Smith and above Ingles but the projections rank Reggie Jackson over Smith. 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.

Mike Muscala
 PHI 8% Own

Our projections run counter to general expectations. Mike Muscala is projected to be a top tier fantasy center. As of 12/6, Mike Muscala is the #42 ranked center based on ownership percentage (8%). His projection based center rank is #29. There could be an opportunity to acquire him while the market is still not as high on them as the projections are. Unless someone offers an even better center value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for 838 fantasy points in 56 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#30) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Mike Muscala behind Kaminsky and above Poeltl but the projections rank Mike Muscala over Kaminsky. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly better in 2 categories (strengths) than his overall fantasy point ranking. Scoring is not necessarily a strength but it is not a weakness and he is considered a well-rounded center who contributes equally in most key stats.

Will Barton
 DEN 90% Own

His latest projection based rank among guards is #30. Based on ownership percentage (90%), Will Barton has a market rank of #42 among guards. With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Will Barton to be undervalued. 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 J.J. Redick who has virtually the same market rank (90% Owned) as Barton. He is projected for 1514 fantasy points in 58 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#33) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Will Barton behind Redick and above Lamb but the projections rank Will Barton over Redick. His value could significantly increase if he was more of an offensive threat, especially from inside the three-point arc. But he does do better in the other areas of the game.

Bad Fantasy Values for the Rest of the Season

Jabari Parker
 CHI 99% Own

Based on ownership percentage (99%), Jabari Parker has a market rank of #20 among forwards. Based on the latest projections the market is overrating Parker. His projection based forward rank is #37. Owners should not be surprised if they find themselves benching Parker more than they thought. He is projected for 1307 fantasy points in 57 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #35 highest average. The market ranks Jabari Parker behind Ibaka and above Hayward but the projections rank Hayward over Jabari Parker. 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 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.

Josh Richardson
 MIA 99% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (99%), Josh Richardson is expected to be the #24 guard for the rest of the season. The market expects more than the projections do. His projection based guard rank is #40. Most owners expect to start Richardson every active week, but we think they might have to bench him in certain situations. He is the lowest rated of the 3 guards (Tim Hardaway, Trae Young) with this market rank (99% Owned). He is projected for 1373 fantasy points in 59 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#45) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Josh Richardson behind Hardaway and above Young but the projections rank Young over Josh Richardson. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly better in 4 categories (strengths) than his overall fantasy point ranking. 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.

Domantas Sabonis
 IND 98% Own

Based on ownership percentage (98%), Domantas Sabonis has a market rank of #26 among forwards. Projected to be a backup forward his value could reach market expectations if there is an injury to the starters. He is projected for 1283 fantasy points in 58 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#42) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Domantas Sabonis behind Collins and above Wiggins but the projections rank Wiggins over Domantas Sabonis. 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 value could significantly increase if he was more of an offensive threat, especially from three-point range. But sharing the ball is a strength.

Mohamed Bamba
 ORL 58% Own

Based on ownership percentage (58%), Mohamed Bamba has a market rank of #25 among centers. Projected to be a backup center his value could reach market expectations if there is an injury to the starter. He is projected for 691 fantasy points in 57 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#36) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Mohamed Bamba behind Howard and above Robinson and the projections agree. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly better in 2 categories (strengths) than his overall fantasy point ranking. While scoring is his strength (especially from three-point range) he contributes enough in other areas to be considered a well-rounded center.

Jeff Teague
 MIN 97% Own

Based on ownership percentage (97%), Jeff Teague has a market rank of #27 among guards. Our projections indicate that Jeff Teague is overrated by the market. His fantasy guard projection rank is #31. There are other guards with virtually the same market rank (Louis Williams, Goran Dragic, Gary Harris 97% Owned) and Teague ranks #3 out of 4. He is projected for 1489 fantasy points in 57 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#32) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Jeff Teague behind Murray and above Williams but the projections rank these players in reverse order. 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 value could significantly increase if he was more of an offensive threat, especially from three-point range. But sharing the ball is a strength.
