Buy Low, Sell High: Fantasy Week 1 (Dimemag.com)

So, for the sake of helping you channel this impatience into something to your advantage, here’s a list of players to buy low and sell high, which I posted on Dimemag.com today. (Click here for the actual post and more details.)

  • Antawn Jamison: out a few more games, but grab him now
  • J.R. Smith: ditto

  • Tony Parker: hard fall took down his numbers too; won’t be this cheap ever again
