76ers and Kings related note, game looks to be canned?
Probably not with all those 3s he is taking.
bump on his fg%? His season/college averages are hovering around 48-50%
100% (1) agree 
Props to this guy, He was so upset he can't play in the 2nd OT
60% (5) agree 
Probably could have lived without the embiid isn't playing update lol
100% (1) agree 
just to add, I also have Dieng. given same scenario as below, who would you rather trade or Embiid? Up for Dieng, Down for Jok. ROS and obviously 2 more yrs to be taken into consideration
12T, H2H, 3 yr max hold (this yr is 1st yr), 4 keeper league. Including injury and real life roster risk, Embiid > Jokic? I'd be selling low on Jokic given I drafted him at 48.
No way @Joey_B Embiid will be even more beast next year. 1st round value especially if you keep 6 players. Assuming a 10team league, hes well over Top 60. Pau is just garbage. And will regress every year from now
50% (2) agree 
Got offered Embiid for Pau Gasol and a first rounder next year. We keep six players every year. 9 cat h2h. Pull the trigger?
0% (6) agree 
Trade my Dieng for Embiid? My FG is very strong ATM but Embiid will kill my TO
He reminds me of a young Hakeem Olajuwon with range. Absolute freak. Really hope he just stays healthy and has a long career.
100% (4) agree 
I would pay zero attention to his turnover numbers. I believe Embiid can become a top 20 fantasy player without too much issue and could easily be a 20/10 guy with 1 three and 2+ blocks on good %
What's up with these crazy turnover numbers? Let's say those settle down as he gets more experience, what kind of numbers overall are you forecasting him to grow into? Need to know to make decisions in keeper league.
Are they gonna rest Embiid all season long?
100% (1) agree 
So what are the chances of the league correcting one of Embiid's stats for the Pacers game? He should have had 2 blocks credited to him. Instead, one of the blocks was given to Ilyasova even though it was clearly Embiid who blocked the shot. Proof is in the game highlights if you search it up on Youtube. 4th quarter with about 4 minutes to go. Hits a big three then down the other end gets a block on Jefferson.
I want to trade Jokic for Embiid as well, but I doubt the guy in my league will take it. Thinking it would have to be a 2 for 1, but not sure if that is putting too much value on Embiid.
Was looking forward to the Embiid-Turner matchup. Both of them have two fouls within the first 2 minutes of the game...
88% (8) agree 
trade my Jokic for Embiid? I also have an option for Marc Gasol. Which is better? I think Embiid is more fun to own, I want to trust the process.
Most likely to win a 2017 auction league based on keeper value
100% (1) agree 
So this guy is the real deal? His lines in ~25 minutes are awesome minus the TO's.
100% (3) agree 
Don't get me wrong, this guy has shown more promise in 20 minutes than Len has in his entire life
100% (3) agree 
You can't ignore his usage rate though. Sure, he's only playing 20-25 minutes but if his usage rate hovers around 30%-35% then he will have value regardless.
He played like 15 minutes in the second game. We have no idea how B2Bs will affect his minutes either. Noel is out and Okafor is also on a minutes restriction. His Fouls/36 is 6.7 (two games in, granted) – minute restrictions might not be the only thing to limit his minutes. So, a season projection of 23 minutes seems fair.
His minutes restriction has already been raised to 24m after 2 games - his current 23 m/g projection for the season seems low.
Philly isn't trying to win games right now. They priority is working on developing their prospects -- Embiid mostly. They are being smart in being super cautious in limiting his minutes. Limiting him to 20-24mpg and sitting him in b2b's will still afford Okafor an average of 24-30mpg off the bench. Then both of them are getting their playing time in the optimal setting as the lone C on the floor.
0% (1) agree 
Embiid is easily as athletic as Porzingas currently is at PF. Both Okafor and Embiid are superior ball handlers in the halk court as well, unlike Noel, who did nothing but kill any chance at running a half court offense. Noel is best on a team with superior guards. The Sixers have never had that, hence why Noel must go. Starting both Embiid and Okafor takes pressure off of the lousy backcourt and off one another. It's a no brainer to eventually have Okafor starting next to Embiid.
67% (3) agree 
Kinda seems like Embiid's usage projection is in need of a substantial upward revision based on my eye test of the Philly games.
I dont think they share the court a great deal. Moving Embiid to PF youd lose his rim protection and together theres less space to work on offense. Made that mistake with Noel and Okafor last year. Id imagine Okafor will be Embiids backup.
It's becoming clear that Brown wants to play Embiid with Okafor once the minutes restriction is lifted. I would think Embiid starts at PF with Okafor at center. Once Simmons comes back, I believe Brown wants Simmons as his PG going forward. He hinted at this during the preseason. I think this would then open the door for Stauskas to start at SG to give them another shooter.
While he won't have Towns' first year impact, Embiid is going to be the guy that wins auction keeper leagues next year.
100% (2) agree 
On the plus side he has requested to be nicknamed "The Process" which is the best and most self aware nickname in sports
100% (5) agree 
Towns put up first round value last year and appears to be an MVP candidate for the foreseeable future. Embiid is currently restricted to 20 minutes, has major long term durability concerns after multiple foot surgeries kept him off the court his first two years in the league and has played one game. It's a little early
43% (7) agree 
Is it too early or too late to call Embiid this year's Towns?

80% (5) agree 
Minutes restriction be damned. This guy is just oozing talent and he's hungry to prove himself. With Noel likely to be traded and increased minutes throughout the season, I think we many people will regret passing on him by the end of the season. It may take some time, but this guy is going to be a fantasy star.
100% (1) agree 
He might beat the projection for 3pts (6 for the season) by Week 2. Nice bonus and amazing upside.
His Yahoo ADP is 122? Is that right? I'd guess the public would be higher on him.
100% (2) agree 
what do you guys think of his free throw %? hes been doing excellent in the pre season.
100% (2) agree 
It's pretty high in a dynasty, I think top 50 easily if you like risk taking
People in my league seem to be targeting Embiid. I think they will reach for him. any idea where his ranking is proper? i mean around when should we take a potential player like him for a dynasty league?
100% (2) agree 
I know that, it's more so it allows him to be filtered in the rookies when you look at projections and rankings
100% (1) agree 
I get that Embiid is in his rookie season, but he wasn't drafted in 2016.
