With just over a month and a half in Yahoo standard leagues (of course, check your own settings) it appears trade season is upon us, at least if what’s been going on in my leagues…

DeMarre Carroll (left knee soreness) suited up on Wednesday and put up 18 points on 5-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds in 46 minutes in a 3OT win over the Cavs.
Carroll hit a step-back 3-pointer at the buzzer of the second overtime to send the game to the third overtime. He was a crucial part of the Nets' late-game rotation in this one and helped them seal the deal. Carroll has been a late-round value over the past two weeks, and if he could improve his field goal percentage he would be a solid top-100 play. However, he is more of a deep league guy right now as the Nets are almost fully healthy and his role in the offense should slightly decrease.

DeMarre Carroll (left knee soreness) has been removed from the Nets' injury report for Wednesday's game.
Carroll will be available against the Cavs barring a setback tomorrow. He's fine to throw into your deep-league lineups if you usually would.

DeMarre Carroll (sore left knee) is feeling better and expects to play on Wednesday against the Cavs.
The Nets lost a close game in Toronto last night and having Carroll around to act as a speed bump for Kawhi Leonard might have made a difference. Deep-league managers should get ready to plug Carroll back into lineups for a great matchup tomorrow.

DeMarre Carroll (sore left knee) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Raptors.
Carroll has been logging big minutes of late but the arrow is pointing down with Caris LeVert and Allen Crabbe both back in the fold. He's not someone that needs to be held in 12-team leagues, while tonight we'll likely see DC's minutes spread across LeVert, Crabbe, Joe Harris, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Rodions Kurucs and Treveon Graham. The Nets have tons of depth, so there aren't any true winners here when one player misses time.

DeMarre Carroll (knee soreness) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Raptors.
Caris LeVert is back so that's going to take away some production from everyone but Carroll is still playing 27.2 minutes over the past three games. However, Rondae-Hollis Jefferson is getting healthier and playing better so that could also eat into Carroll's production. The Nets have a lot of forward depth off the bench so don't feel too bad about dropping Carroll if you need to.

DeMarre Carroll led the Nets reserves with 28 minutes on Wednesday and delivered 18 points (3-of-8 shooting), 10 rebounds, six assists, two triples and four steals.
The 32-year-old still has got it and has been a fringe standard league asset over the last few weeks. We might see him fade with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (15 points, two rebounds, one assist) now a bit healthier.

DeMarre Carroll had another solid outing on Thursday against the Spurs with 18 points on 5-of-13 shooting with three 3-pointers, five rebounds and two assists.
Carroll played well again on Thursday and is slowly becoming the wing player to own in Brooklyn. Don't get too attached though as there's plenty of talent waiting on the wings for their next bite of the pie.
January 28, 2019, 9:52 pmDeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets
DeMarre Carroll scored 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting with two triples, five boards, two assists and two steals on Monday.
Carroll looked solid in 28 minutes of action along with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (14 points on 7-of-19 shooting with nine boards, three assists and two blocks). Both players are just streamers though as teh Nets have a plethora of wings that rotate good and bad games.

DeMarre Carroll picked up seven points, four rebounds and an assist in Friday's win over the Knicks.
Carroll went 1-for-4 from the field and just 5-of-8 from the stripe in 24 minutes, but he's someone to watch since Rondae Hollis-Jefferson left the game after a head-on-head collision. The other likely beneficiary from an RHJ absence is Rodions Kurucs, who had eight points in 18 minutes tonight.
January 25, 2019, 10:11 pmRondae Hollis-Jefferson - F - Brooklyn Nets
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had a head-on-head collision on Friday and will not return.
Hollis-Jefferson couldn’t even stay in to shoot his free throws so we imagine he’ll be entered in the league’s concussion protocol. It’s a shame but RHJ just can’t stay healthy. Rodions Kurucs and DeMarre Carroll will soak up most of his minutes. He finished Friday’s game with 10 points, seven boards and three assists in 24 minutes.

DeMarre Carroll was effective off the bench in the Nets' 114-110 victory over the Magic on Wednesday, pouring in 19 points on 6-of-13 shooting with four rebounds, an assist and three treys.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson left this game early with an apparent shoulder injury, opening a fresh window for Carroll to be an offensive force off the bench. He does enough to be an end-of-bench guy in standard leagues right now and is a hold given RHJ's injury.
January 18, 2019, 9:31 pmJoe Harris - G/F - Brooklyn Nets
Joe Harris had a pretty typical game with 11 points, three 3s, four assists and a steal in Friday’s comeback win over the Magic.
Harris has been steady all year with top-115 value and he’s getting his game on track after a brief dip in production since returning from the flu. DeMarre Carroll added 10 points (no 3s) and a steal and has been a deep-league play (top-180) over the last few weeks while getting heavy run off the bench.
January 16, 2019, 10:58 pmDeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets
DeMarre Carroll played well in an overtime win over the Rockets on Wednesday as he put up 22 points on 6-of-13 shooting.
Over the past two weeks, he has been a late-round value after having a rocky start to the season. Joe Harris, who had 17 points with four rebounds and seven assists, and Carroll were two of the five on the court to end this game; Treveon Graham, Spencer Dinwiddie and Jarrett Allen made up the remainder of the lineup. Both Harris and Carroll should be on fantasy radars in deeper leagues as they are a crucial part of the Nets’ rotation and provide good value in points and 3-pointers.
January 14, 2019, 9:57 pmDeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets
DeMarre Carroll grabbed a career-high 14 boards to go with 10 points, two assists, a block and a 3-pointer on Monday.
Carroll marred his line with 2-for-15 shooting with a 1-for-9 mark beyond the arc. He's an iffy play at best and with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson questionable to play on Wednesday, which should send Carroll back to waiver wire fodder.
