MVP/CPT

Joel Embiid

Embiid has put up 50+ DKP in 7-of-9 games overall and is coming off a 63 pointer against the Kings last time out. There is nobody in Portland -- or the entire league -- that can stop this version of Embiid right about now. He’s playing like an MVP and we should use him in the MVP slot on Thursday...
