  • Ersan Ilyasova: also holding onto his starting gig, also hit double-digit points in five of his last six
  • Anthony Parker: finally back from his back injury, started the last game for the Cavs, should be good for threes and steals
  • Mike Miller: averaging 11.1 points, two threes, 8.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists since Jan. 22
  • Christian Eyenga: starting gig seems safe for now, continues to put up solid numbers across the board (except for shooting percentages) (continue reading…)

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

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Ryan Anderson: averaging 14.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.9 threes in January; he should be owned in nearly all leagues by now
  • Chuck Hayes: getting plenty of run at center for the Rockets, doing everything pretty well
  • Rudy Fernandez: on a hot streak, could benefit so long as the roster is this depleted
  • Mike Miller: monster game Saturday (without Dwyane Wade) deserves attention, but he’s not likely to be anything more than some threes on most nights
  • Ronny Turiaf: lost his starting gig again, but he’s worth monitoring for his shot-blocking ability (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Danny Granger shot 50 percent (12-24) from the field and 100 percent (5-5) from the line as he put up 31 points, 2 threes, 16 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 2 blocks and 4 turnovers. His heel is still worrisome, but he’s a fantasy stud when he’s playing.

Notable lines:
Anthony Randolph – 8-20 FG (40%), 1-2 FT (50%), 17 Pts, 13 Reb, 1 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk

Channing Frye – 4-9 FG (44%), 2-2 FT (100%), 3 3ptm, 13 Pts, 6 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 Blk

Paul Millsap – 3-8 FG (38%), 3-4 FT (75%), 9 Pts, 13 Reb, 1 Stl, 1 TO (continue reading…)

Five players who are undervalued

by on Oct.08, 2009, under Other

I completed two of my three fantasy drafts last night and was stunned at how late some players were being drafted. I’m not sure if having a lower average pick position than they should have means these players are sleepers, but clearly some fantasy owners are losing out on some serious help.

So, here’s a quick list of five players who are probably being drafted too low for the value they really offer, with their average Yahoo! league pick positions (as of today) and the approximate positions they should be selected at. (I know not all of these jibe with our top 150 rankings from a couple weeks ago, but those need to be updated so bear with us.)
