• Short, sweet and straight to business, here are the (under 60% owned) players to consider adding based on Saturday’s 8-game slate.

    Derrick White (43%)
    Saturday’s Line: 27 MIN, 8-9 FG, 2-2 FT, 19 PTS, 4 REB, 1 STL, 1 BLK, 1 3PM, 2 TO
    White has been producing across the entire stat sheet the last two weeks for top-20 value and does it again tonight. While this type of production will not last, can he maintain top-50 value going forward? It’s worth a shot to found out.
    Recommendation: 10 Team Leagues

    Al-Farouq Aminu (56%)
    Saturday’s Line: 30 MIN, 3-6 FG, 7 PTS, 8 REB, 2 AST, 1 STL, 1 3PM, 0 TO
    Has been a top-100 guy all season so not sure why he is owned in only 56% of leagues.
    Recommendation: 10-12 Team Leagues

    Justin Holiday (55%)
    Saturday’s Line: 21 MIN, 1-7 FG, 2 PTS, 2 REB, 2 AST, 0 TO
    This is less of a pickup recommendation and more of a don’t drop recommendation. First game with new team was disappointing but let’s give him at least a couple more before giving up on someone that’s been a top-50 player all year. Garrett Temple and Dillon Brooks are his only real competition for minutes.
    Recommendation: 10-12 Team Leagues

    Marvin Williams (52%)
    Saturday’s Line: 34 MIN, 6-15 FG, 1-2 FT, 16 PTS, 6 REB, 3 STL, 1 BLK, 3 3PM, 3 TO
    A little volatile but has value in standard leagues with near-top-100 value on the season, averaging 1.9 triples, 0.9 steals and 0.7 blocks. 3.5 Cash counting stats per game is not bad at all.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    Wesley Matthews (38%)
    Saturday’s line: 24 MIN, 7-11 FG, 18 PTS, 2 REB, 4 3PM, 0 TO
    Top-140 value on the season with 14.0 points, 2.4 triples and 0.9 steals. Should be rostered in higher percentage of leagues.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    Bismack Biyombo (6%)
    Saturday’s Line: 30 MIN, 7-10 FG, 2-3 FT, 16 PTS, 12 REB, 2 STL, 2 BLK, 2 TO
    Jumped over Willy for the starting job tonight and for all we know, it might stick for the next 4-6 weeks. Should be picked up just in case and although he won’t produce like tonight every game, he has had runs of similar stat-lines in the past.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    Danny Green (48%)
    Saturday’s Line: 41 MIN, 5-7 FG, 12 PTS, 9 REB, 1 STL, 1 BLK 2 3PM, 2 TO
    A reliable top-100 guy for most of the season, Green has been ice cold for the last two weeks and may have been dropped in many leagues. Maybe tonight’s game helps him get back on track.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    Bryn Forbes (34%)
    Saturday’s Line: 30 MIN, 2-7 FG, 2-2 FT, 7 PTS, 1 REB, 2 AST, 1 STL, 1 3PM, 1 TO
    Forbes failed to hit two triples for the first time in the last 10 games but has been a fairly consistent top-100 value over the last three weeks and with his minutes safe, is way under-owned at 34%. Is somewhat of a three-point specialist but strong percentages to go along.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    Austin Rivers (14%)
    Saturday’s Line: 42 MIN, 8-15 FG, 21 PTS, 1 REB, 1 AST, 5 3PM, 1 TO
    Has played big minutes (38.1) since joining the Rockets six games games ago and has been nothing more than three-point specialist in that span with 2.8 per game. Huge minutes won’t be there all season as Eric Gordon and Chris Paul should eventually return.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    JaMychal Green (17%)
    Saturday’s Line: 29 MIN, 2-8 FG, 3-3 FT, 8 PTS, 10 REB, 1 STL, 1 3PM, 4 TO
    Green disappointed with ample opportunity last year but is now surprisingly a better fantasy asset in 5 less minutes per game. Has been a top-150 guy this year with so-so lines like tonight.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Willy Hernangomez (21%)
    Saturday’s Line: 16 MIN, 3-7 FG, 4-4 FT, 10 PTS, 5 REB, 1 AST, 0 TO
    Was an obvious pickup with Cody Zeller missing the next 4-6 weeks but the coach still refuses to give him minutes. Still worth a flier with the hope for a potential breakout game.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Jae Crowder (41%)
    Saturday’s Line: 26 MIN, 1-8 FG, 2-3 FT, 4 PTS, 5 REB, 3 AST, 3 STL, 1 TO
    Very pedestrian line tonight but still maintaining top-150 value in standard leagues thanks to his 2.1 triples per game and random outbursts like the 30 he put up against the Raptors two games ago.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Reggie Bullock (18%)
    Saturday’s Line: 39 MIN, 7-14 FG, 19 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 5 3PM, 2 TO
    Got 39 minutes even with all the other wings healthy. Has been a very reliable three-point shooter but sadly that’s really all he is good for in fantasy. At 2.4 triples on the season and 3.3 over last four games, he should be considered.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    T.J. McConnell (7%)
    Saturday’s Line: 29 MIN, 2-5 FG, 2-4 FT, 6 PTS, 1 REB, 4 AST, 3 STL, 1 TO
    Poor line salvaged by three steals. Deserves consideration with over 25 mpg in each of the last four with 2.5 steals and a 60.0 FG% for near top-100 value.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Fred Van Vleet (54%)
    Saturday’s Line: 35 MIN, 6-12 FG, 4-4 FT, 21 PTS, 5 REB, 8 AST, 1 BLK, 5 3PM, 0 TO
    Finally has the big line everyone was waiting for while starting but Lowry should be able to return next game. Nonetheless, VanVleet should retain a 25-30 minute per game role for top-150 value and tonight’s game may be the turning point of a somewhat disappointing season.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Alec Burks (10%)
    Saturday’s Line: 36 MIN, 2-9 FG, 2-2 FT, 8 PTS, 3 REB, 6 AST, 1 STL, 2 3PM, 1 TO
    Has held top-150 value over last two weeks but just not a very exciting option.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Kevon Looney (6%)
    Saturday’s Line: 24 MIN, 2-2 FG, 1-1 FT, 5 PTS, 7 REB, 3 AST, 2 BLK, 0 TO
    Should hover around top-150 per-game value until DeMarcus Cousins’ debut.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Collin Sexton (49%)
    Saturday’s Line: 31 MIN, 5-12 FG 3-4 FT, 15 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 2 3PM, 3 TO
    Has been decent in scoring all season without much in the other categories. The 2.3 triples per game over last three is encouraging and maybe he keeps it up.
    Recommendation: 14 Team Leagues

    Cedi Osman (23%)
    Saturday’s Line: 33 MIN, 5-12 FG, 1-1 FT, 13 PTS, 1 REB, 5 AST, 3 STL, 2 3PM, 3 TO
    Too inconsistent to warrant anything other than a spot start in standard leagues but at least you know the minutes are there.
    Recommendation: 14 Team Leagues
