Yes, there are NBA Fantasy leagues that focus on the bubble.
Here’s what Yahoo thinks today as the Sixers take on the Wiz at 4:
Joel Embiid, PHI at WAS ($49):
Embiid couldn’t duplicate the 80.2 Yahoo points that he scored against the Pacers on Saturday, but he was still excellent when he scored 44.3 Yahoo points versus the Spurs.
His usage rate sits at 32.9 percent and he has never finished a season with a usage rate lower than that, so his offensive floor is incredibly high.
The Wizards have allowed the seventh-most Yahoo points per game to opposing centers, leaving Embiid with the potential for another monster stat line.
