Rest of Season Fantasy Value: Comparing Kornet to Holmes

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Our projections run counter to general expectations. Luke Kornet is projected to be a top tier fantasy center. Based on ownership percentage (23%), Luke Kornet has a market rank of #31 among centers. His projection based center rank is #24. 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. He is projected for 566 fantasy points in 38 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#27) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Luke Kornet behind Holmes and above Gasol but the projections rank Luke Kornet over Holmes. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly better in 3 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.
