Andre Roberson nearly double-doubled with eight points and nine rebounds on Friday but also went 0-for-4 from the free throw line and failed to rack up a 3-pointer, steal or block.
To put it simply, if Roberson isn’t grabbing cash counters by the handful, he’s pretty much useless for fantasy purposes. His atrocious free throws might be worth the hassle if he’s bringing in elite steals and blocks but if those aren’t flowing he’s just dead weight. Roberson might’ve been a bit out of his element tonight since the Hawks don’t have anyone he needs to shadow, but there are other players surely ready to start nipping at his heels. Josh Huestis won that lottery tonight and totaled five points, four rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal and two blocks in 25 minutes. He’s on the radar in extremely deep leagues but we’d like to see his minutes stabilize before recommending an add in formats with less than 20 teams.
