Stock Falling- Sullinger

Jared Sullinger put up 24 points and 17 rebounds in his last game against the Sixers but his stock is falling.

Analysis: It took Sullinger 25 shots to put up those 24 points earlier this week. He shot 9 of 25 from the field and for the year he is shooting an awful 42% from the field. Keep in mind that he has power forward and center position eligibility, so 42% is an abysmal mark. Guys like Marvin Williams are shooting better from the field than Sullinger.

We must also take a look at his previous three games prior to his 24 point outburst. In those three games Sullinger scored a combined 16 points and 12 total rebounds in 66 minutes of play. He is averaging about 12 points and 8 boards this year in 26 minutes per night but Sullinger isn’t producing as of late. He’s only averaging 0.5 blocks and 0.5 steals this year which is unacceptable for a fantasy big man. He’s a fringe add in standard leagues but there are better options available on the wire.

Sullinger is available in 10-40% of fantasy leagues. His rebounding has been great in the moderate amount of minutes he plays but the field goal percentage and the lack of blocks are worrisome. Own at your own risk.
