Reggie Jackson and Pascal Siakam: Elite Players to Target

Reggie Jackson
 DET 91% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (91%), Reggie Jackson is expected to be the #41 guard for the rest of the season. The projections have him 13 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. Unless someone offers an even better guard value, we advise you to hold on to him. Of the 5 guards (J.J. Redick, Joe Ingles, Gary Harris, Kris Dunn) with this market rank (91% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 1311 fantasy points in 52 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#31) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Reggie Jackson behind Redick and above Harris but the projections rank Reggie Jackson over Redick. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 3 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. Scoring is not necessarily a strength but it is not a weakness and he is considered a well-rounded guard who contributes equally in most key stats.

Pascal Siakam
 TOR 96% Own

His latest projection based rank among forwards is #22. As of 12/22, Pascal Siakam is the #32 ranked forward based on ownership percentage (96%). Our projections indicate that Pascal Siakam 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'. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better forward option available. He is projected for 1217 fantasy points in 48 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Pascal Siakam behind Covington and above Gay but the projections rank Pascal Siakam over Covington. 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.

T.J. Warren
 PHO 97% Own

As of 12/22, T.J. Warren is the #30 ranked forward based on ownership percentage (97%). Our projections indicate that T.J. Warren is underrated by the market. His fantasy forward projection rank is #21. 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 forward value, we advise you to hold on to him. Of the 3 forwards (Harrison Barnes, Robert Covington) with this market rank (97% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 1245 fantasy points in 50 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#25) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks T.J. Warren behind Barnes and above Covington but the projections rank T.J. Warren over Barnes. 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. 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.

Will Barton
 DEN 93% Own

Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly better in 3 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 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.

Al Horford
 BOS 99% Own

His latest projection based rank among centers is #11. Ranking by ownership percentage (99%), Al Horford is expected to be the #15 center for the rest of the season. With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Al Horford 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 center option available. He is projected for 1374 fantasy points in 51 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Al Horford behind Kanter and above Turner but the projections rank Al Horford over Kanter. 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.

Spencer Dinwiddie's market rank is better than our current projections indicate. Projected to be a backup guard his value could reach market expectations if there is an injury to the starters.

His fantasy center projection rank is #26. He is a clearcut starter with a per game average FP rank of #20 so owners will need to determine if they can wait until he is back (expected 1/12/2019). He is projected for 808 fantasy points in 39 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #20 highest average. The market ranks Tristan Thompson behind Allen and above Lopez but the projections rank Lopez over Tristan Thompson.

Andrew Wiggins
 MIN 99% Own

As of 12/22, Andrew Wiggins is the #21 ranked forward based on ownership percentage (99%). The market is higher on Andrew Wiggins than the projections are so we consider him to be overvalued. His fantasy forward projection rank is #26. There are many other forwards with virtually the same market rank (Danilo Gallinari, Serge Ibaka, DeMarcus Cousins, Draymond Green, Nikola Mirotic, Lauri Markkanen, Kyle Kuzma 99% Owned) and Wiggins ranks #5 out of 8. He is projected for 1183 fantasy points in 50 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#28) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Andrew Wiggins behind Kuzma and above Markkanen and the projections agree. 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 he is not expected to pass very often.
