Weekend Wonder: Chris Paul averaged 21.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 4.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.0 three in two games over the weekend. He shot 50 percent from the field and 100 percent from the free-throw line, and turned the ball over once per game in that stretch. CP3′s scoring and threes made per game are up, though his rebounding and assists are down from their marks last season. If his owners are complaining, they should really get help.

Lines for Discussion:
Zach Randolph (3/16): 9-14 FG (64%), 7-14 FT (50%), 25 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl; it’s obvious that his owners should feel free to start him right away

Marcus Thornton (3/16): 13-24 FG (54%), 5-6 FT (83%), 5 threes, 36 Pts, 4 Reb, 4 Ast, 5 Stl, 1 TO; Thornton is the most valuable fantasy asset on that Kings roster, which isn’t that big of a surprise

Joe Johnson (3/16): 12-19 FG (63%), 4-4 FT (100%), 6 threes, 34 Pts, 6 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO; in his six games this month, Johnson is averaging 25.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 3.3 threes, while shooting 54 percent from the floor and 93 percent from the free-throw line — top five numbers for that stretch (continue reading…)

Channing Frye

Beast of the Night: Channing Frye posted 26 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one steal, four blocks and five three-pointers last night. He shot 56 percent (10-18) from the floor and 100 percent (1-1) from the free-throw line, and had two turnovers. After a poor start to the season, Frye has picked things up since February. He’s been a top 70 asset so far this season, which is about in line with expectations.

Lines for Discussion:
Evan Turner: 9-11 FG (82%), 2-4 FT (50%), 1 three, 21 Pts, 5 Reb, 4 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk; in his last four games, Turner is averaging 21.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.5 threes, while shooting 64 percent from the field and 77 percent from the free-throw line

Kris Humphries: 7-18 FG (39%), 2-2 FT (100%), 16 Pts, 21 Reb, 3 Ast, 3 Stl, 3 Blk, 3 TO; Hump seems pretty happy without Deron Williams and Brook Lopez around

Jeremy Lin: 2-4 FG (50%), 2-2 FT (100%), 6 Pts, 4 Reb, 6 Ast, 2 Stl, 6 TO; this was just one game, and it was a blowout victory — give this a few more games before making any conclusions (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 2.10.12

Stephen Curry

Beast of the Night: Stephen Curry finished with 36 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and six three-pointers last night against the Nuggets. He shot 77 percent (13-17) from the floor, 57 percent (4-7) from the free-throw line and had one turnover. For the season, Curry is averaging top five numbers, which is a shade better than what was expected of him heading into the season. So long as he’s healthy, Curry will remain a fantasy beast.

Lines for Discussion:
Pau Gasol: 12-20 FG (60%), 1-1 FT (100%), 25 Pts, 14 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Blk, 2 TO; Gasol has double-doubled in his last four games, averaging 17.7 points, 14.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 blocks in that stretch

Arron Afflalo: 8-16 FG (50%), 5-5 FT (100%), 5 threes, 26 Pts, 2 Reb, 1 TO; Afflalo has been a big disappointment his season, but this was nice

Channing Frye: 8-17 FG (47%), 1-1 FT (100%), 4 threes, 21 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 2 TO; Frye has looked mostly solid so far in February and seems safer to start going forward (continue reading…)

Brook Lopez, Manu Ginobili, Luol Deng and any other productive fantasy players who are injured should be considered buy-low candidates. (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 2.2.12

Brandon Jennings

Beast of the Night: Brandon Jennings finished with 31 points, four rebounds, eight assists, four steals and seven three-pointers last night. He shot 36 percent (9-25) from the floor, 75 percent (6-8) from the free-throw line and had zero turnovers. Since Jan. 17, Jennings is averaging 24.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.9 steals and 3.6 threes per game, while shooting 45 percent from the field and 83 percent from the free-throw line. For the season, he’s putting up top 10 averages.

Lines for Discussion:
Hedo Turkoglu: 5-16 FG (31%), 4-6 FT (67%), 2 threes, 16 Pts, 4 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO; Turkoglu’s hot start to the season is a faint memory, but he’s still a decent bet for all-around production on a week-to-week basis

Channing Frye: 5-9 FG (56%), 5-5 FT (100%), 1 three, 16 Pts, 7 Reb, 1 Stl, 2 Blk; this was the first time Frye has cracked double-digit points since Jan. 13, which basically sums up his season

Darren Collison: 7-12 FG (58%), 5-5 FT (100%), 1 three, 20 Pts, 6 Reb, 9 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 TO; it’s probably no coincidence that this line came with George Hill out of the lineup (continue reading…)
