Now to all of the other players that were on the move last week for the trade deadline. I won’t be commenting on some of the trades that sent deep bench players that didn’t see any minutes so far this season, because they aren’t worth talking about in fantasy basketball.

Timofey Mosgov (Den-C)- Mosgov isn’t likely to see a whole lot of min with Denver this season. So his value takes a hit (even though he didn’t have that much to begin with).

Anthony Randolph (Min-PF, C)-In Randolph’s first 3 games with the Wolves he has seen just under 9 total min. So needless to say he is not worth owning. If he ever does get minutes he could be valuable for his ability to rebound and blk shots.

Corey Brewer (NYK-SG, SF)– Brewer has been cut from the knicks so depending on where he lands his value will be nothing. If he gets added to a contender his min will be for defense and spot up shooting (which he isn’t very good at).

Jeff Green (Bos-SF, PF)– Green’s value takes a major hit from a starter seeing 34+ min a night to a reserve spot probably seeing 17-22 min a night. This could improve his fg% seeing as he won’t be shooting as much. But overall he will take a hit in pts, reb, stl, and blk. So if you can deal him for someone now is the time.

Nenad Krstic (Bos-PF, C)– Krstic’s value actually increases because of this trade. He won’t be a focal point in the offense, but he is a capable offensive player. He was never really called on to score that often in OKC and he has a better pure PG to deliver him the ball in high % situations. So his scoring should raise some, and he will probably get more min with Bos.

Kendrick Perkins (OKC-C)– Perkins is injured and will be for at least another week. When he returns you can expect much of the same he has given you while in Boston. I do think he will get more reb, and blk because OKC’s team defense is slightly worse than Bos and we don’t have a great rebounders next to him. Could be a good chance for Perkins. Oh and this was just released, contract extension.

Nate Robinson (OKC-PG, SG)– Nate probably won’t see many minutes for the Thunder, but then again he had his first practice with the team today. I think there will be games when he sees some good playing time because he can be a great offensive spark. He wasn’t really worth owning before the trade and I don’t think he is worth owning much after the trade.

Shane Battier (Mem-SF)– Battier is simply a great team defender who can shoot the three. That is pretty much all he does. He will get you 1 blk, 1 stl, 2 ast, 5 reb, and about 8 pts. That is what he will do for you in a grizzlies uniform too.

Hasheem Thabeet and DeMarre Carrol (Hou)– neither of these two guys will be worth owning unless you are in a keeper format or a very deep league probably 16+. Then Thabeet is the only one worth owning simply because he is a 7 footer who could be good somewhere down the line.

Aaron Brooks (Pho-PG)-Brooks could be an interesting guy for the rest of the year. He is the backup PG for Nash, who has had minor bumps and bruises the last couple of years. So if Brooks gets to start the occasional game he will get 3’s ast, and pts, but will hurt you with his poor fg%. As of now Brooks is seeing less min than he was with the Rockets. So overall his value takes a small hit.

Goran Dragic (Hou-PG)-Dragic goes from being behind an old PG, to being the backup to a young PG. So his value takes a big hit. He was the starter at times to allow Nash to rest, but now with Lowry being the starter Dragic won’t see many spot starts. With decent min he can give you ast and some stls but he isn’t worth picking up at this point.

Baron Davis (Cle-PG)-Davis now takes the place as Mo Williams as a guy who I don’t think anyone should own at this point. He plays for a team that can’t do anything but rise to the 3rd overall pick, and Davis doesn’t really like playing unless his team is good. So drop him now and don’t worry about it.

Mo Williams (LAC-PG)-I still don’t like Mo very much, but he can run a decent PG. He will give you ast, stl, 3’s, but he is a high volume shooter and has a low fg%. I still wouldn’t want him on my team, but he is going to start on a high offensive team so if you need help in stl and ast he is a candidate for you. His value increases since he plays for a better team, oh and he gets to throw the ball to Blake Griffen…who doesn’t want to do that for their job?

If you have any specific fantasy sports questions regarding your team let me know and I will do my best to answer them. Don’t forget to subscribe so you can be notified when I put a new post up. Hope you have enjoyed my first 2 months of blogging.


All-In (These are the players that have been playing well the last 2 weeks and could benefit your team)

Ryan Anderson (Orl-PF, C) Ryan Anderson has been on a tear for the last several weeks, and in Yahoo formats he is only 52% owned. Look at his line the last two weeks. FG% .484, FT% .824, 3’s 3.5, Pts 16.8. Reb 7.1, ast 0.5, stl 0.4 Blk 1.1, TO 0.9. So at first glance he offers help in every category except ast and stl, but offers huge benefits in both 3’s and has a great turnover rate. Come on people he needs to be owned by 75% or more.

Rudy Fernadez (Por-SG) Rudy has been playing well for his 27 minutes a game. However he is owned by only 21% of leagues. So if you need a slight boost in 3’s, 1.5 a game, FT%, .882 a game, and Stl, 1.8 a game, then Rudy is your guy. However he will hurt your FG% considering he is shooting under .400 and only getting you 10 pts a game.

Mario will have plenty of chances at wide open 3's as the new starting PG


Mario Chalmers (Mia-PG) Mario was just named the starting PG again for Miami so his value gets a slight boost considering his Minutes per game are at 32 and might go up some. His value comes from his 3’s 2.8 a game, ast, 3.8 a game, and stl, 1.4. He doesn’t cripple you in any category considering he is a PG. You may be thinking 3.8 ast isn’t that good for a PG, and you are right, but he will probably get into the 4.5-5 range since he is the full time starter now. And ast is a difficult category to get help in at this point in the season, so every little bit helps.

Greg Monroe (Det-PF, C) Monroe has been playing really well since the middle of December. It seems like this rookie is getting used to the pro game, and he is finding his role on the Pistons. He will be a good addition to your team if you have no depth at your C position and will boost your FG%, .643 a game, your rebounds, 8 a game, and is averaging less than a turnover a game. His FT% and low blocks are the only thing holding him back from being a must add in every league. But he is getting playing time 32 min per game, and the Pistons have been playing pretty well as of late.

Fold (These are players who haven’t been doing so well lately and should be moved off of your team)

Roy Hibbert (Ind-C) Hibbert hasn’t even been close to averaging a double-double over the last month, and he is shooting a terrible .363 from the field. He is a center and is shooting under .400 and isn’t even shooting 3’s! He is only helping in Blks and he is only getting 1.2 a game. It is time to kiss Hibbert goodbye or at least try to see if someone else is willing to take him.

Gilbert Arenas (Orl-PG, SG) & Mo Williams (Cle-PG, SG) They both are still widely owned! For reasons to drop these guys see the post “first fantasy session.”

O.J. Mayo (Mem-SG) Mayo is having a tough year his minutes have dropped since last year. He is shooting under .400 and is only at 1.2 3’s a game. This is low for a shooter, but then again his ppg is at 11.6. If he is on your team you can find those stats on the waiver wire. It’s time to say goodbye to Mayo. Unless Memphis trades him he isn’t worth much right now on your team.

Check (these are guys who haven’t been playing that well, but shouldn’t be dropped yet. You should monitor their status over the next 4-5 games)

Green keep your eyes open so you will start hitting your shot.

Jason Terry (Dal-PG, SG) Terry is someone who always has his ups and downs so I’m not going to say drop him right now, but if he continues to play as poorly the next 10 days as he has the last month, then you should drop him. He is shooting under .400 and under .620 from the FT line, and is offering little to no help in the D stats. So he is more of a wait and see but he should be the next to go unless he picks up his game the next couple of games.

Jeff Green (OKC-SF, PF) Green was off to a career year for the first two months, but then something happened, he wasn’t making his shot. His minutes have actually decreased 3 min a game since November. This isn’t a huge decrease, but it could mean his minutes could continue to dip if he doesn’t find his shot. He is shooting poorly from both the field and the line. His 3’s are down and he isn’t even getting 5 reb a game anymore. It hurts me as a Thunder fan to say this, but Green is playing bad and watching him live you can tell he isn’t comfortable right now.
