Oh, man, bad news for Bradley Beal owners. He has a stress fracture of the proximal right fibula which is approximately near to the left proximal fibula but on the other side! The left side! Sigh. I’m not sure if you noticed but Bradley was a bit injury prone last year too and missed some games so I’m feeling like it’s the same old Bradley. Even though he’s young! Ironic! In the meantime (at least the next two weeks, probably a bit more is my guess), Martell Webster is own-able pretty much every where unless you don’t like averages like 14.8 ppg/5.4 rpg/3.2 apg/3 3pm per. That’s what he’s averaging over his last 5! If you picked him up weeks ago like I told you to then expect the good times to keep rolling for you. If he’s somehow still sitting out there on your wire then what are you waiting for? What are you waiting for-or-or. Like the song! Go! Here’s what else I saw in fantasy basketball last night:
Derrick Williams – Traded to Sacramento today and should get burn there until they find out how bad he sucks. Oops. Did I just type that out loud? I’d grab him just to make sure he doesn’t suck! Maybe he won’t suck. He probably will but don’t take any chances!
Gerald Wallace – 17/4/3 with 2 steals a block and a three. Just after you dropped him! Figures. Anyway, this is what happens when a guy plays against his former team. Incentive! Talk about getting old at the age of 31. Pity.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist – 4/4/0 in 17 minutes. Over his last 5 he’s averaging just 23 mpg/6 ppg/4 rpg. Here’s what I told you when he was hot back on November 12: I remember he started off last year pretty well also so I touted him as a potential darkhorse rookie of the year. Then he kicked me in the nuts. Anyhoo! Let’s see if he can sustain his play. I’m curious to see how he does with Al Jefferson in the lineup consistently. That said, I think his current numbers are probably close to the best you can expect. If not, blame my Magic 8 Ball, he told me to type that. Magic 8 Ball was right again. As usual!
Lance Stephenson – 11/8/2 with a steal and a three. He’s having a nice solid year and the only thing standing in his way from continued solid production is Danny Granger. Danny Granger! Hahahahehehaheheaheeehe
O.J. Mayo – 5/2/0 in 25 minutes. hecman smokes peace pipe and silently chants buy low, buy low. Mil-a-wa-kay!
John Henson – 15/7/1 with 2 steals and 2 blocks. Now averaging almost 11/6 and 2 blocks on the season. Not just a five game stretch! I didn’t tout him as a 6th man award winner before the season or anything like that. Oh, wait. I did!
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – 14/2/3 with 2 steals and 2 threes. Now shooting .347 FG on the season. Shooting problems anyone! Outside of the putrid FG though you could do worse on the wire. Steals and threes and what not!
Channing Frye – 16/8/3 with 3 steals and 4 threes. Last Friday I told you to pick him up when he was 8% owned in Yahoo! leagues. Obnoxious first name and all! Now he’s 18% owned. Just sayin’. Go get him!
Norris Cole – 2/4/3 with a steal in 34 minutes. I still think his name should be Cole Norris but I digress. Stream while Mario Chalmers is sidelined. Or don’t! Your call.
Kosta Koufos – 8/13/2 with 2 blocks in 31 minutes. I really don’t see any reason why he can’t average close to 9ish boards and 2 blocks per while Marc Gasol is out. Use him for a few weeks then ship him out for better long term value. That’s what I’d do anyway!
Ed Davis – 6/4/1 with a steal and 2 blocks. Now if it were Zach Randolph hurt and not Marc Gasol I’d be telling you to grab big Ed instead of Kosta. Hope you didn’t get the wrong one! Drats!
Wilson Chandler – 11/1/1 with a steal in 19 minutes. Danilo Gallinari doesn’t seem anywhere near a return so I’m not going to get down on Wilson too much. He’ll bounce back! I think he will. Maybe. Yes!
Boris Diaw – 13/5/2 with a steal in 31 minutes. You could do worse in deep leagues. I am right now on my bench! I said deeeep leagues to be clear! By the way, 13 guys played for the Spurs last night. Fun!
Mike Dunleavy -3/2/3 with a steal in 36 minutes. Cheap threes until Jimmy Butler comes back. After that, he’ll still be cheap threes. That’s what he do! Though he didn’t hit any last night. Insert sad face emoticon here.
Kirk Hinrich – 1/2/4 in 36 minutes. Minutes. Check. Stats. Meh. Let’s keep it real right now with Kirk, shall we? As a starter last year he averaged 29 mpg/7.7 ppg/5.2 apg/1.1 spg/1.2 3pm/.377/.714. Yeah! Wait, no! Ok, yes, on the dimes, steals and threes. I’ll take it in 12 teamers and beyond!
Marvin Williams – 17/9/1 with a steal and 3 threes in 44 minutes. Oh great, Utah won. May as well take a whirl on him for now if you’re in need. Enes Kanter is out! Keep an eye of Rudy Gobert too on Friday if you need a streamer. If Enes misses more time I mean.
Amar’e Stoudemire – 10/6/2 with a block in 25 minutes. I don’t know how often he’ll sit but in deep leagues you could do worse than Amar’e playing 22-24 mpg. Don’t be greedy! I don’t like greedy.
Andrea Bargnani – 16/6/3 with a block and 2 threes. I’m telling you, man. Sell him high! Like a kite!
