Fantasy Talk

Barbosa looks like the Raptor who has been benefitting the most consistantly from the nagging injuries to Calderon and Bayless.  He's definitely worth a look right now.

Handcuffing Calderon with Bayless like guys handcuff their football running backs does not seem like a bad idea for Calderon owners in leauges that set their lineups on a daily basis.

Is Julian Wright on the verge of killing Linas Kleiza's fantasy value permanently.  I would have thought that Kleiza would have some value until Weems gets back, but it looks like Raptors fans may get there wish and JuJu will see some minutes.  All that will do fantasy wise is make Kleiza join Julian Wright as a useless fantasy player.

Other teams:


DeAndre Jordan

I am sure most people have noticed that DeAndre Jordan has blocked at least 6 shots in the last 3 games.  He will not keep getting that many, but Chris Kaman is not close to returning yet.  So in a league with 10 or more teams he is definitely worth running to pick up if you know he is available. 

To put things in perspective.  I am in a ten team league where we need to be consistantly playing 13/14 guys to use up our games played allowed for the year.  So far the average number of points scored per game used of all the owners in my league is about 14.65 .  The average number of blocks is about 0.67.  That means that every block is the fantasy equivalent to almost 22 points scored.  So DJordan blocking 6.33 shots over his last 3 games would be like him averaging 140 pts per game...Insane.  He will not keep this up, but 2 plus blocks until Kaman gets back is looking very achievable. 

DeShawn Stevenson

I do not trust that this guy will hold down the starting 3 spot in Dallas for long, but for as long as he does, he should help out in 3PTM.

He has taken 29 over the last 3 games and hit 11 of them.  Again in my league, the average # of 3PTM per game is less than one.  The value of his contribution in the 3PTM department over the last 3 games would be like him contributing 57 points per game in the points category...Obviously he is below average in many categories, but if he can continue to hit 2 plus 3PTM per game for a bit he becomes very playable in the short term.....
