Pickups (% owned in ESPN leagues)
Shawn Marion SF/PF Dal (19.4%)- has produced 21 or more fantasy points in 5 out of his last 6 games played (missed last 2 games) still had 18 FPTs the game he didn’t reach 20.

Toney Douglass PG/SG Hou (1%)- big with him is he has gotten almost 33 minutes in his last 3 games played and has averaged almost 21 fantasy points per game during that span.

Pickup of the week
Jose Calderon (60% owned)- Kyle Lowry is hurt again. Calderon was putting up monster games when Lowry was out so look for continue that production as long as he is out.

John Salmons SG/ SF, SAC(1.1% ESPN)- Starting to get a lot more playing time and producing. Has 17 or more fantasy points in 5 out of his last 6 games including a 43 point game 2 games ago.

Shannon Brown SG, PHX(8.4%)- has scored in double digit points in his last 6 straight games and has scored at least 20 or more fantasy points in 5 of those games.
Jeff Green SF/PF, BOS (8.3%)- is slowly starting to produce for the Celtics has he produced 24 or more fantasy points in 3 out of his last 5 games and no less than 14 fantasy points in those 5 games. If something happens to Paul pierce

Ed Davis PF/C,Tor(.6%)- Is getting the start tonight and should continue to see big minutes as long as Bargnani is out. He had 28 fantasy points in his last game in which he had a lot of PT.

Kris Humphries- Drop it likes its hot ( already dropped in 46% of leagues). He is not getting the PT any more and ain’t rebounds anymore. He did have a string a 3 games where he had 20 or fantasy points but that got followed by 11, 13, and 4 point fantasy games.

Al Farouq Aminu SF, NO(21% owned)- isn’t starting anymore so he isn’t producing anymore. Hasn’t reached 20 fantasy points in his last 6 games played.
Antwan Jamison (44% owned)- he actually hasn’t been doing that bad recently but he is now on the bench as JORDAN HILL is now starting infront of him. Nuff Said. Hasn’t reached double digit points in his last 3 games.

Marcus Thornton SG, Sac(85% owned)- Tough to drop him but he just isn’t producing. In his last 4 games he has only 8, 12, 14, 9 FPTs. Has scored 24 TOTAL points in those 4 games
