There’s some fantasy life brewing over in Washington DC or up in Washington DC if you live south of there. Or down in Washigton DC if you live north of there. Enough! Who’s breathing? It aint John Wall and his knee bone problem, that’s for sure! It sure as hell aint Trevor Ariza and his basketball skills problem, not to mention his quad problem. It’s definitely not A.J. Price who was doing a little bit o’ dis and a little bit o’ dat before he went down for the count almost two weeks ago. No, he’s not Irish! It’s Bradley Beal! It’s Jordan Crawford, son! Inhale. Exhale. Inhale again. Remain calm, there’s more. Over Bradley’s last 5 he’s gone 16 ppg/4.4 apg/4.4 rpg/1.4 spg/1.4 3pm/.418 FG/.850 FT. You like what’s cookin’! Rhetorical! Hence the exclamation point and not the question mark. Let’s take a look at Jordan’s last 5 now: 20.2 ppg/5.4 rpg/5.6 apg/1 spg/2.4 4pm/.398/.792. I told you a few weeks ago I smelled a hot run coming on for Jordan and he hasn’t disappointed. Right now Jordan is 61% owned. It should be higher. Right now Bradley is 57% owned. That should be higher too! Now the next question is who to grab, you only have one spot. I feel your pain. For short term gratification, I’d roll with Jordan. If you want longer term gains, I’m leaning Bradley. John Wall will be back someday and probably cramp Jordan’s style a bit more. That’s how I see it anyway. Go, go, hurry, get them! It’s Add/Drop Friday! Let’s get to it, shall we? (Please not all ownership percentages are from Yahoo!)
Jared Dudley – 53% – Has been getting run at the three and producing. Problem is I don’t trust Alvin Gentry any further than I can throw him and I can’t throw him very far. In fact, I can’t throw him at all. He’s big, I can’t even pick him up!
Rodney Stuckey – 43% – hecman giggles. How many times have I told you to grab him in the past month? Who’s yelling Uncle now?!
Kawhi Leonard – 42% – Rumor has it he should be back any day now, said Adele.
Spencer Hawes – 42% – Been getting burn, pick him up and ship him out quick, quick!
Gerald Henderson – 35% – I’m not a fan but go ahead and take a whirl if you feel like whirling around. Or something like that.
Kyle Korver – 33% – Don’t forget what he was doing before he went down with a bad back. He was doing goooood. Bad English!
Ed Davis – 28% – Should get rebounds at the minimum. He likes to rebound the basketball!
Nate Robinson – 21% – Will be very, very gooood if Kirk Hinrich misses more time. I’d stream him everywhere if that happens.
Marco Belinelli – 21% – Told you to grab him last Friday when he was just 5% owned. The early reader gets the worm! Or something like that, part due!
Jonas Valanciunas – 21% – There is one large Italian man missing from the Raptor’s front court. Nevermind that he has a girl’s name.
Bismack Biyombo – 20% – Getting the burn, me likey the burn. Not rug burns though. I hate rug burns.
Austin Rivers – 17% – Getting the burn, me likey the burn. Not fire burns though. Those are the worst!
C.J. Miles – 17% – Stream him everywhere tonight. Go ahead, don’t be shy. Hurry along now. Dion Waiters isn’t playing. Or so I heard anyway.
Markieff Morris – 12% – I think he should be more than 12% owned. He’s not all that but then again neither is Freddy Prinze, Jr. Whatever happened to Freddy anyway? Hmmmm.
Matt Barnes – 10% – Been quietly producing. Ssshh, be berry berry quiet, I’m hunting Barnes! >>>>>>> what???
Amir Johnson – 7% – Should be owned in all standard leagues right now. Go, go, quick, quick. He may disappoint you but then again he may just also have a few big games in him!
John Salmons – 6% – Not loving John but I love Salmon! (medium rare)
Mickael Pietrus – 5% – Getting minutes and I’m obligated to tells you the guys getting minutes. Meh.
Jordan Hill – 5% – Continue to run out there for boards and blocks as long as Pau Gasol remains sidelined. Or don’t. Your call.
Gerald Green – 4% – Flopped (and not fined) in his first go around when he got minutes. May get minutes again with Lance Stephenson sidelined so give him a look-gander if you’d like.
Tyler Zeller – 3% – Getting some front court run. Not a lot, just a little. Give him a look-see in deeeep leagues. Keep monitoring elsewhere.
Andrew Nicholson – 2% – See Tyler Zeller 1/4 inch above depending on the size of your monitor, of course!
Ray Allen – 87% – What’s in a name? Damn, Saaaaaaam. 87% to me indicated he’s probably owned in a bunch of shallow leagues. I don’t know, I think I’d rather own Bradley Beal or Jordan Crawford right now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not losing him in standard leagues or anything. He’s not the plague!
Jason Terry – 73% – See Ray Allen.
Danny Green – 57% – Those of you enjoying him in shallow leagues, you may want to start looking for the next hot free agent out there. Kawhi Leonard and Gary Neal may cramp Danny’s style! Monitor then decide.
Elton Brand – 55% – Those of you who own Elton Brand in shallow leagues, please don’t. It’s embarrassing.
Antawn Jamison – 41% – Can be lost for a hot free agent in shallow leagues.
Sam Dalembert – 39% – There’s no crying in fantasy basketball. Just drop him, it’ll be ok.
Trevor Ariza – 38% – Excluding Danny Green, if I had Allen, Terry, Brand, Jamison, Dalembert and Ariza on my team 4 years ago I might have won a league! Sigh.
Dorrell Wright – 35% – People, he’s no good. He’s no gooood. Say it real slow. It works better!
Wilson Chandler – 34% – Those of you holding him I’m guessing you either have a star studded team and can afford to stash someone who isn’t even going to start after he comes back, or maybe you’re his relative! If you’re neither, then lose him!
Chauncey Billups – 25% – Mr. Big Shot has a bad foot. He hurt it kicking you in the ass after you picked him up.
