Put Spencer Dinwiddie (98% Owned) On the Trading Block

Justise Winslow
 MIA 88% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (88%), Justise Winslow is expected to be the #40 forward for the rest of the season. The projections have him 18 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 Trevor Ariza who has virtually the same market rank (88% Owned) as Winslow. He is projected for 1118 fantasy points in 47 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#29) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Justise Winslow behind Carter and above Ariza but the projections rank Justise Winslow over Carter. 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. But sharing the ball is a strength.

Chris Paul
 HOU 99% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (99%), Chris Paul is expected to be the #25 guard for the rest of the season. Our projections indicate that Chris Paul is underrated by the market. His fantasy guard projection rank is #15. 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. Of the 5 guards (Josh Richardson, Buddy Hield, Jamal Murray, Trae Young) with this market rank (99% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 1435 fantasy points in 41 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #10 highest average. The market ranks Chris Paul behind Hield and above Dinwiddie but the projections rank Chris Paul over Hield. With a better FP Avg rank than Total rank, his value will increase 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.

Pau Gasol
 SA 23% Own

Our projections run counter to general expectations. Pau Gasol is projected to be a top tier fantasy center. Ranking by ownership percentage (23%), Pau Gasol is expected to be the #34 center for the rest of the season. He is projected to be the #21 center. There could be a nice opportunity to acquire him before the market realizes he is undervalued. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better center option available. He is projected for 852 fantasy points in 44 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#23) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Pau Gasol behind Len and above Gortat but the projections rank Pau Gasol 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.

Paul Millsap
 DEN 96% Own

His latest projection based rank among forwards is #21. As of 1/2, Paul Millsap is the #32 ranked forward based on ownership percentage (96%). Paul Millsap's projection rank is better than their market rank. 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. Of the 3 forwards (Robert Covington, Pascal Siakam) with this market rank (96% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 1136 fantasy points in 47 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#26) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Paul Millsap behind Siakam and above Ingram but the projections rank Paul Millsap over Siakam. 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. His strength is in defensive stats (steals, blocks).

Louis Williams
 LAC 97% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (97%), Louis Williams is expected to be the #28 guard for the rest of the season. Our projections indicate that Louis Williams is underrated by the market. His fantasy guard projection rank is #25. He is projected for 1192 fantasy points in 45 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Louis Williams behind Hardaway and above Ball but the projections rank Louis Williams over Hardaway. 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. But sharing the ball and accumulating defensive stats need improvement.

Bad Fantasy Values for the Rest of the Season

Spencer Dinwiddie
 BKN 98% Own

Based on ownership percentage (98%), Spencer Dinwiddie has a market rank of #26 among guards.

His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Spencer Dinwiddie behind Paul and above Hardaway but the projections rank Hardaway over Spencer Dinwiddie. Scoring is his strength and he cannot be considered a well-rounded guard.

Serge Ibaka
 TOR 99% Own

He is projected for 999 fantasy points in 43 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #32 highest average.
