With the schedule being more demanding this year maybe they take it even easier on him? I can never trust Embiid.

He's definitely improved, specifically with his handling of double teams. He is grasping the right timing with when to pass and who to pass to out of them, triggering rotations and opening things up f

Do I need to make it a habit of adding Dwight Howard before every second b2b? Why can't they announce this shi earlier and just get it over with........

Not going to lie getting frustrating to own. On a per game basis Embiid has been one of the best value picks in the first 2 rounds but when he’s missing damn near every other game like the last two weeks or so it doesn’t translate to fantasy so well.

Yup average it all out and he's a 3rd rounder at best. Sucks. We just need him to play 80-90% of the season with monster games. Not this 60-70% bs.

Where are you getting 3rd round from?

 

He’s 9th overall in total value in 8-cat even with the DNPs.

It must be a 4 team league.

The main issue is he has been trending in that direction. Played in the first 8/9. If he misses this game that’ll mean he’s missed 4 of the last 11 games. He will drop real quick from that top 10 if he continues to miss nearly 40% of his games. It’s looked borderline like the Kawhi treatment. Don’t buy the back tightness at all.

imagine drafting embiid 2nd round thinking hes going to play every game 

You expect him to play more than 60% of the games. If this trend continues from a fantasy perspective he’s giving you 16.8 PPG/6.7 REB/1.7 AST/0.8 BLK/0.6 STL. That’s what his numbers will average out to if this back tightness BS continues all season. You’re basically getting John Collins numbers on a weekly basis.

Spot on. He would miss at least one game per week on average.

Yeah “DTD” for most of the league usually means over 50% they play. For Embiid it’s almost a “doubtful” tag.
