    REST OF SEASON VALUE

    Rudy Gobert is projected to be the #8 rated player of 10 centers who are owned in 100% of leagues. Using actual fantasy production and current start percentage as the first and second tie-breaker, his market rank is #6. He can be considered slightly overvalued and expect his ranking among 100% owned centers to go down. He is projected for 1182 fantasy points in 36 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #7 highest average. The market ranks Rudy Gobert behind Drummond and above Gasol but the projections rank Gasol over Rudy Gobert. 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.
