Jeff Teague

It's simple: Don't sleep on Teague. (NBA.com)

Here’s a quick list of my top 20 fantasy basketball sleepers for the 2011-12 NBA season (assuming nine categories), broken down into three tiers: napping, dozing and comatose. For the full list, which includes an introduction and explanations for each listed player, head on over to DimeMag.com.

Napping (sleepers in a loose sense of the word, because just about everyone knows it):

  • Arron Afflalo (SG, TBD): Target in rounds 6-7
  • Jared Dudley (SG/SF, Suns): Target in rounds 6-7
  • Jeff Teague (PG/SG, Hawks): Target in rounds 8-9
  • DeAndre Jordan (PF/C, Clippers): Target in rounds 9-10 (continue reading…)

Roundup of NBA News: Love Lost Weight, Carter to Be Cut, Bynum Improves

by on Dec.05, 2011, under Free agents, Injuries, Quick hits

The quickly approaching Dec. 25 start to the somewhat unexpected 2011-12 NBA season means fantasy owners are like students cramming for a big exam. Here are a few tidbits to help you ace your drafts:

  • Kevin Love

    Kevin Love is reportedly “25 pounds lighter than when he left following last season.” This bodes well for his ability to maintain, if not exceed, his stellar fantasy value from last season. I can’t see any reason why Love would fall out of the top five spots in any fantasy basketball draft this season.

 

  • Vince Carter is expected to be waived by the Phoenix Suns, which opens up the door (as expected) for Jared Dudley to step in and start. In 15 starts last season, Dudley averaged 51.8% FG, 77% FT, 1.7 3PTM, 16.3 Pts, 5.9 Reb, 2.2 Ast, 2.1 Stl, 0.5 Blk, 1.2 TO. In the 65 games he played (15 of which he started, 50 of which he came off the bench) from Dec. 2, 2010, through the end of last season, Dudley put up top 80 value. Call him a sleeper if you want, but Dudley should’ve already been on your radars. He’ll be a bargain if he falls into the last quarter of your draft. Carter, meanwhile, could land on a team in need of a SG, but don’t be fooled — his days of being a reliably productive fantasy asset are over. (continue reading…)

2010-11 Fantasy week 24 preview

by on Apr.03, 2011, under Quick hits

Jared Dudley

Game watch:
4 games: BOS, CHA, CHI, CLE, DEN, DET, LAC, LAL, MIL, NJ, NY, OKC, PHO, SAC, TOR, WAS
3 games: ATL, DAL, GS, HOU, IND, MEM, MIA, MIN, NO, ORL, PHI, POR, SA, UTA

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Jared Dudley: he’s started his last four games and has averaged 18.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, three steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 threes in that stretch
  • Tony Allen: he won’t hit many threes, but Allen is doing a lot in just about every other column, especially steals
  • Jerryd Bayless: he had a great line in his start Saturday without Jose Calderon; if Calderon misses more time with his bum hammy, Bayless will finish the season as a stud
  • Ed Davis: he’s racked up three double-doubles in his last four games and is worth a look if you need big-man stats, especially while Andrea Bargnani is out (continue reading…)

3 games: ATL, DEN, DET, GS, LAC, LAL, MEM, MIN, NO, ORL, TOR, UTA

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Jarrett Jack: his past two games have been solid, though he’s tough to rely on
  • Chris Andersen: he’ll always chip in some blocks when he’s playing, but his 17/11/1/2/5 line on Friday was a doozy (continue reading…)
