Weekend Wonder: Zach Randolph was a monster this past weekend, averaging 29 points, 20 rebounds, 3 assists, 0.5 steals, 2 blocks and 3.5 turnovers in two games. He shot 59 percent from the field and 90 percent from the free throw line. Randolph had 32/24 on Sunday, when he even hit a three. Sell high if you can, but don’t be surprised if he continues to impress as the season wears on.

Notable lines:
Gilbert Arenas (12/18) – 15-25 FG (60%), 11-16 FT (69%), 4 3ptm, 45 Pts, 3 Reb, 13 Ast, 1 Blk, 5 TO

Caron Butler (12/18) – 13-22 FG (59%), 2-2 FT (100%), 28 Pts, 10 Reb, 2 Ast, 5 Stl, 2 TO

Marreese Speights (12/19) – 11-20 FG (55%), 6-9 FT (67%), 28 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 TO

Lou Williams (12/19) – 2-9 FG (22%), 2-2 FT (100%), 6 Pts, 2 Reb, 4 Ast (continue reading…)

Game watch:
4 games: CLE, HOU, IND, LAC, PHO, SA

2 games: CHA, MEM, NJ, NO, PHI, TOR

Waiver wire watch:

  • Marreese Speights: early return, early production, will make things difficult for other Sixers’ big men
  • C.J. Watson: continues decent play, remains relevant in deeper leagues
  • Erick Dampier: gives you the numbers you want from a starting center
  • Tony Allen: quietly making some noise, especially with Marquis Daniels out
  • Jonathan Bender: surprise signing by the Knicks, could have value in deep leagues
  • Omri Casspi: continues to hold value as long as Kevin Martin is out (continue reading…)

We’re quickly approaching the one-month mark of this NBA fantasy season and I think it’s safe to say that it’s been quite a ride thus far. Here’s a quick rundown of the past, present and future.

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

Waiver wire watch:

  • J.J. Hickson: starting for the moment, good source of points, boards and a smattering of steals and blocks
  • Carl Landry: cooled off last game, playing extremely well lately, shoots high percentages
  • Beno Udrih: still not owned in many leagues but thriving while Kevin Martin is out
  • Taj Gibson: decent producer while Tyrus Thomas is out, more appealing in deeper leagues
  • Toney Douglas: playing well with decent minutes, monitor Nate Robinson’s impact on his value (continue reading…)

We haven’t even embarked on the third week of the 2009-10 NBA regular season and there’s already a lot going on – injured bodies, prides and, consequently, damaged fantasy rosters. Let’s take a glance at the week to come.

Game watch:

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

Waiver wire watch:

  • Marreese Speights: still inconsistent, but getting enough minutes to put up decent points, boards and blocks; should be good play in four-game week in deeper leagues
  • Rafer Alston: Devin Harris is still up to four weeks away from returning, Alston will be seeing 40+ minutes on most nights
  • Terrence Williams: with Harris and Courtney Lee out with groin injuries, door is open for Williams to produce (continue reading…)
