“All Things Fantasy” (2-18-13)

In this Monday February 18th, 2013 edition of “All Things Fantasy” I talk some Fantasy Basketball pickups and some player to targets going into the real NBA trade deadline. Also, I give my bounce back player of the year of the week in fantasy baseball and give you some players who will be a cheap source of stolen bases on draft day. Below are my notes from the show.

“All Things Fantasy”

Traded for Lebron/JR Smith..gave IGGY/ZBO/MONTA/Deron Williams in the FSWA expert league

Pickups (% owned in ESPN leagues)
Jason Terry (54.6% of leagues)- is shooting 52.3% in last 15 days while playing 30 min agame, knowkcing down 2 3s a game, while dishing out close to 4 assist and scoring 13 points per game during that span.
Taj Gibson- insurance for Joakim/ Boozer
Michael Beasley -38%

players to target before trade deadline
Eric Bledsoe
Kris Humphries
Samuel Dalembert
Derrick Favors
Gerald Henderson
marcus thornton
Jared Dudley

Bounce back player of the Week

Brett Gardner OF, NYY- last year Gardner only played a handfull of games before getting hurt, but he is still one of the best base stealers in the league. He had 49 SBs & 87 runs in 2011 and 47 the year before that (97 runs) so he isn’t a fluke. while he will only hit about .260 or 270. His OBP should be around .345 if not higher, had a .345 OBP in “11 & .385 OBP in ’10. He is putting up similar numbers to Michael Bourn but could be had a lot cheaper. best part is people are going to forget about him b/c they will be looking at last years stats so make sure to put him on your watch list during the draft

Don’t pay for steals early in the draft b/c here are some solid options that can get you steals later on in the draft

Alcides Escobar SS, KC- (10th among SS, 211 ADP)35SBs
