Paul george- contributes in every category 2.3 3PMS, 7.8 rebounds, 4 assist, 1.8 steals, .6 blocks, and 17.8 points

Tony Parker- 2nd in fantasy poitns for a PG, shooting a ridic 53.5% from the field. there are only 2 players in the NBA who average over 20 points and 7.0 assist per game and tahts Westbrooke and TP

Grievis Vazquez- tied for 2nd in the league with 9.4 assist per game, if you take out FG% and Steals (2 less than CP3)as he is shooting almost 4 points worse (43%) than CP3

Nikola Vucevic- 12.5 points, 11.6 rebounds (3rd among active players),1.1 blocks, 523. FG%

2nd team

Jeff Teague has been ballen out this year 14.2 points, 6.8 assist, 1.5 steals and 1.3 3pms

Hickson- also averagijng a dublay-dublay with 12.9 points and 10.5 rebounds

Asik- averaging a DD with10.5 points and 11.5 rebounds, 1.1 blocks

larry sanders- leas the league in blocks with 3.2 a game

Tristan thompson- averaging 15.6 points and 9.3 rebounds the last 30 days

Pickups

Charlie Villinueva- (1.7%) has averaged 19.5 points, 10.5 rebounds,& 1.5 blocks in his last 2 games

Samuel Dalembert (42.4%) has 10 blocks in his last 3 games and has a dublay-dublay 5 out his last 7 games

Patrick Patterson(17.5%)- has scored in double figures in his last 7 games.

Evan Longoria- dont believe hype- Played in 74 games last year and 133 games the year before. has had only 2 500 AB seasons out of 5 seasons.. I understand he is great when he plays had 17 Homeruns & 55 Rbis in only 74 games last year. and 31 homeruns & 99 rbis in 133 games the year before, but I just cant take a player that hasnt played a full MLB EVER in his MLB career.

Pablo Sandoval- His injury history scares me, played 108 games last year and 117 games the year before. Has never had more than 90 RBIs in a season or hit more than 25 homeruns.

Rickie Weeks- why is he ranked so high. (6,6,4 in CBS,ESPN has him 12th 2B) had 63 RBIs, 16th among 2nd basemen, 231 average, tied for 12th with 16 SBs put of 2nd basemen

Bounce back year

Alex Avila C- Det. Avila struggled mightly last year and a lot had to with a knee tendinitis. In 2011 when he was fully healthy he hit 19 HRS,82 RBIs, .295 BA and 385 OBP. the 82 RBIs wouldve been 5th amongst catchers last year

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

“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
