Weekend Wonder: Stephen Curry steamrolled through the weekend by averaging 27 points, 4.5 rebounds, six assists, two steals, 0.5 blocks and 3.5 threes in two games. He shot 60 percent from the field, 100 percent from the line and averaged 2.5 turnovers. After a somewhat forgettable December, Curry has managed to lift most of his averages in January and should maintain top-10 value the rest of the way.

Beast of the Night: Dorell Wright put up 27 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals, two blocks and hit five three-pointers against the Lakers. He shot 46 percent (11-24) from the field and had no turnovers, which is even more impressive when you consider that he played all 48 minutes of this contest. Wright is a leading candidate for “Fantasy Steal of the Year” and should be a dependable starter nearly every week going forward.

Happy New Year, readers. I’m back from a wonderful vacation and ready to tackle 2011. I hope you are, too.

Beast of the Night: LeBron James finished with 38 points, nine rebounds, five assists, one steal and two threes last night against the Bobcats. He shot 58 percent (15-26) from the field, 100 percent (6-6) from the free-throw line and had three turnovers. All is well in the kingdom of LeBron, who has lifted his fantasy value from the slump it was in earlier this season.

Stephen Jackson: 7-15 FG (47%), 7-8 FT (88%), 1 three, 22 Pts, 2 Reb, 5 Ast, 2 Stl, 5 TO

Beast of the Night: Charlie Villanueva finished with 23 points, 11 rebounds, 3 steals and 1 block last night in a surprising blowout victory over the Hawks. He chipped in three three-pointers and shot 59 percent (10-17) from the floor. Villanueva hasn’t started a single game this year, but he’s improved many of his stats from last season’s marks. Still, he remains far from an everyday fantasy stud and lines like this shouldn’t be expected from him that often.

Amir Johnson: 5-9 FG (56%), 2-4 FT (50%), 12 Pts, 12 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 1 TO
