Also, I talk some fantasy baseball strategy. Below are my notes from the show, but you have to listen to show to hear what I say about each guy and my fantasy baseball strategy.

Pickups (% owned in ESPN leagues)

Earl Clark (11.6%)- is averaging 13 points, 11 rebounds, 1.5 blocks in his last 2 games while playn close to

Darrel Arthur (0.0%)- could see a major uptick in minutes and production now the Speights is gone

Emeka Okafor(35.3%) averaging 10 points, 10.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in the last 30 days.

Overrated players (FPTs= fantasy points per game based on 1 point for a point/reb, 1.5 for an assist/steal/block, -1 for a turnover)

“All Things Fantasy” (1-7-13)

January 8, 2013

This is the Monday January 7th, 2012 edition of “ALl Thigns Fantasy”. In this edition I talk fantasy basketball player news, recent injuries, answer some caller/twitter questions, and give some pickups for this upcoming week. Also, talk about some fantasy MVPs based on ADP (Average Draft Position). Here are my notes from the show.

Dwight Howard- Torn labrum

Anderson Varejoa- Sounds like he is returning Weds

Tyreke Evans- Expected back tonight

Andrew Bynum (53% ESPN,71% of Yahoo) – Please drop him

Kevin Love- out another 4-6 weeks

Pau Gasol- out for next 2 games atleast

Kyle Lowry- not playing as much

Pickups (% owned in ESPN leagues)

Pickup of the Week

Antwan Jamison (5.4%)- Should get plenty fo minutes with Gasol and Howard out. This is a great pickup for the short term that could end up being solid long term

Dante Cunningham- (1%) played 42 minutes and scored 10 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, while dishing 2 assist, 2 steals, and 3 blocks last game,

John Henson (2.3%)- in his last 3 games is averaging 13.3 PPG & reb PG, 1.7 APG & BPG, 59% FG, 25 min .

Derrick Williams (1.4%)- will get plenty of PT now that K- Love is hurt again, Think he is the bigger beneficiary of his injury even though Dante Cunningham is playing 42 Min

Glen Davis (37%)- is averaging 16 points, 8 rebounds, close to 2 assist, and 1 steal per game this season

Robert Sacre

Thadeus Young is a great roto player- 52.5 FG%, 59 FT% (3 a game), 14.8 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.6 assist, 1.7 steals, 1 block per game
