Aligned in 50 to 60% of the leagues:
Jarred Vanderbilt (PF / C – MIN) 58%
You must be wondering why teams haven’t asked about Vanderbilt this offseason. Luckily for Minnesota, he didn’t go anywhere and carve out a huge role for himself with the T’Wolves. He plays about 27 minutes a night, but in those minutes last week, Vanderbilt dropped 11 boards and 8.3 points per game. Vanderbilt is starting to be talked about in fantasy circles, so the window to acquire him slowly closes. He’s been the 61st fantasy player in the past two weeks, and on the season he’s ranked 77th.
Franz Wagner (SG / SF – ENT) 54%
Wagner has been fantastic as a rookie for the Magic, and while he’s not good at anything, he’s doing enough with his goals, rebounds and assists to be one of the top 100 players of the season. . With the news that Jonathan Isaac is not yet licensed to become live gaming representatives, Wagner is expected to continue to build up his path to fantastic value. In his last three games, Wagner has scored 43 points, shot 20 boards and distributed 12 assists. He’s a real jack-of-all-trades.
Aligned in 30 to 49% of leagues:
De’Anthony Melton (PG / SG – MEM) 42%
When Dillon Brooks returned to the Grizzlies lineup, Melton was relegated to the Memphis bench. It’s going to regain some fantastic relevance, but not for good reason. Star goalkeeper Ja Morant injured his knee and will miss an indefinite time. Melton will be one of the benefactors, and his defense alone is reason enough to enroll him.
Alec Burks (SG / SF – NYK) 30%
Burks had a colossal night on Saturday, dropping 23 points to the Hawks. This came, of course, with Kemba Walker resting and missing the game. While a considerable scoring outing like this is not expected from Burks night after night, he has consistently been one of the top 120 players over the past calendar month and the 59th player in the Leagues over the past two weeks. previous ones. You should register him in all 12-team leagues.
Aligned in 15 to 29% of leagues:
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl (SF – OKC) 28%
This is my third time writing on JRE this week. Here is what I wrote about it in my category analysis article on Saturday:
âJRE stayed in the starting lineup on Friday night with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander returning to the lineup which was great to see. JRE has four straight double-digit scoring games, and in two of those games he’s also knocked down ten boards. He’s been one of the top 100 players over the past two weeks, and as long as he continues to see mid to high 20 minutes, you should put him in standard 12-team leagues.
Willy Hernangomez (C – NOP) 21%
I was a big fan of HernangÃ³mez in Charlotte. I thought it would be the next big thing. I was wrong, but he’s been a big thing for the Pelicans lately. He took on the backing role from Jaxson Hayes, and he produced across the board in his 20 Minutes a Night. He’s on a four-game double-digit streak averaging 13.7 points, 8.5 rebounds and three assists. He’s not a go-to player, but he should be on your radar in the 15-team leagues.
Aligned in 0-14% of leagues:
Tyus Jones (PG – MEM) 14%
Like Melton, Jones now has fantastic relevance to Morant’s injury. Jones is expected to be the starting playmaker while Morant is out, and while he is capable of scoring double-digit goals, the main contributions he will offer are steals and assists. He is the definition of a streamer.
Brandon Clarke (SF / PF – MEM) 11%
To go along with JRE week, we also need to have Memphis week here, as Morant’s injury impacts a lot of players. Clarke is next. Remember, Clarke got a lot of hype as the 2020 season approached, but he was almost forgotten by fantasy managers and the Grizzlies as the season wore on. In the last two weeks of this year, Clake increased the value of the 11th round, shooting 72.7% from the field, and his minutes increased accordingly. The offensive talent is there, and he could step up Morant for a while.
