Here are the stat lines to take another look at from Saturday night’s action of players owned in less than 60% of Yahoo leagues.
Wesley Matthews (41%)
33 MIN, 4-12 FG, 4-4 FT, 15 PTS, 2 REB, 1 AST, 1 BLK, 3 3PM, 2 TO
Returned from a 3 game absence and continued from where he left off. Has had a bounce back year with 16.1 points per game compared to 12.7 last season. Include the 0.9 steals and 2.6 triples and you’ve got a top-100 player. Mars have three games next week.
Collin Sexton (52%)
34 MIN, 14-21 FG, 29 PTS, 4 REB, 2 AST, 1 3PM, 3 TO
Confidence keeps growing and has now bumped his average to 19.6 points and 1.3 triples since being named the starter eight days ago, with a 50.8 field goal percentage and 83.3 free-throw percentage. Not much production in other stats limits him to top 100-125 value. Cavs have four games next week.
Juan Hernangoemz (30%)
35 MIN, 4-12 FG, 4-4 FT, 15 PTS, 8 REB, 2 STL, 1 BLK, 3 3PM, 1 TO
Still logging big minutes and putting up top-100 numbers since moving to the starting lineup eight games ago. In those eight, he is averaging 12.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.3 triples. Should continue until at least Will Barton returns. Keep in mind the Nuggets only play twice next week.
Markieff Morris (40%)
28 MIN, 6-12 FG, 1-2 FT, 15 PTS, 9 REB, 2 STL, 1 BLK, 2 3PM, 0 TO
Got a bump with Dwight Howard out but ranked around the top-130 in per game value on the season anyway. Center eligible player that with 1.3 triples per game and a 86.5 free-throw percentage on the season. Wizards have four games next week.
Jerami Grant (57%)
31 MIN, 5-11 FG, 1-2 FT, 13 PTS, 2 REB, 2 AST, 1 BLK, 2 3PM, 0 TO
Has no competition for minutes and 1-1-1 guys like this shouldn’t be on the wire in competitive leagues (1.1 triples, 0.8 steals, 1.0 blocks). Keep in mind the Thunder only have two games next week.
Iman Shumpert (17%)
27 MIN, 4-7 FG, 2-2 FT, 14 PTS, 5 REB, 1 STL, 4 3PM, 1 TO
Kings only play twice next week but Shumpert deserves attention with 16.3 points, 3.3 triples, 2.0 steals over last three games. He is ranked in the top-85 on the season in standard leagues and has stayed relevant even with Bogdan Bogdanovic back
Jordan Clarkson (39%)
28 MIN, 8-16 FG, 4-4 FT, 20 PTS, 5 REB, 4 AST, 1 STL, 2 TO
Prior to the season the Cavs wanted Rodney Hood to be their second leading scorer behind Kevin Love but it is Jordan Clarkson that has taken that role with a career-high 15.9 points and has scored at least 19 in three straight. His other stats leave a lot to be desired but he’s a still top-150 guy and the Cavs have a four-game week coming up.
Kelly Oubre (41%)
23 MIN, 5-11 FG, 12 PTS, 4 REB, 1 AST, 3 STL, 2 BLK, 2 3PM, 1 TO
Entered starting rotation three games ago but minutes remain inconsistent. Top-130 per-game value in 24.8 minutes on the year with 12.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.3 triples, 0.9 steals and 0.7 blocks. Will continue to produce late-round value for rest of season. Wizards play four games next week.
David Nwaba (3%)
38 MIN, 5-16 FG, 2-4 FT, 12 PTS, 4 REB, 2 STL, 1 BLK, 1 TO
Has started three games in a row and just played a season high in minutes. Flashed some potential with the Bulls last year and is now being given a legit chance with the Cavs. Has recorded at least one steal in eight straight games. Value drops as free-throw percentage hurts and he gets to the line a decent amount.
Dorian Finney-Smith (6%)
30 MIN, 4-11 FG, 1-3 FT, 9 PTS, 8 REB, 1 AST, 2 STL, 3 TO
Cheap cash-counting stat appeal with 1.5 triples, 1.0 steals and 0.6 blocks on the season in 27.3 minutes. Should be able to maintain at least 25 with Mavs at full strength, which they rarely are.
