Week 13 Fantasy Basketball Rankings: Model that beat experts says start Taj Gibson, sit Devin Booker
SportsLine's projection model tells you who to sit and who to start in your fantasy basketball league
If you're setting your Week 13 Fantasy Basketball lineups, thinking about trades, or searching the waiver wire for the perfect addition to your team, you need to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say.
When it comes to ranking players in Fantasy Football, their model is beating human experts this season when there are big differences in ranking. And the model is the closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it has pinpointed exactly where every player will finish each week.
Now the model has set its sights on Fantasy Basketball and has revealed its rankings for Week 13 (Jan. 8-14).
A player the model loves this week: Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon. He is coming off a solid five-game stretch that saw him average 14 points, 4.2 rebounds, and three assists. He's only owned in 77 percent of CBS Sports Leagues, but SportsLine's model says he'll finish as a top 30 guard this week.
SportsLine's model is also all over Minnesota Timberwolves forward Taj Gibson, who has scored double-digit points in eight of his past 10 games. He will continue to be a usage monster this week with Minnesota playing four games over a seven-day span, including two games against opponents who allow an average of 104 or more points.
And a massive shocker: Suns guard Devin Booker, a top 10 fantasy guard, stumbles this week and finishes well outside the top 40 guards. He's projected to have just 66.4 Fantasy points this week, as the Suns only have two games (vs. Houston, vs. Indiana).
The model is also calling for surprising center to finish in the top 10. No one is talking about him and he may be sitting on your waiver wire right now.
So who should you sit and start this week? Visit SportsLine now to get Fantasy Basketball rankings for every single position, and see which shocking center who's going to finish in the top 10 this week could be on your waiver wire right now, all from the model that out-performed experts in football big-time last season.
