Knicks PF Noah Vonleh
The 9th overall pick of the 2014 NBA draft by the Charlotte Hornets. Vonleh bounced around to the Blazers and Bulls before landing in New York. Vonleh is still just 23 years old. With 3 consecutive double-doubles, Vonleh is worth the pickup. The Knicks rotation is a mess, but Vonleh is a young player that’s finally getting an extended look. Has a 3-game slate this week.
Cavaliers PG Collin Sexton
24.1 usage rate for the month of November. 47% from the field and 83% from the charity stripe in his last 6 games. Scored in double figures in 8 straight games. There’s no reason the tanking Cavs should go back to George Hill in the starting lineup upon return from injury. Cavs play 4 games this week.
Pacers PG Aaron Holiday
Added a spark to Pacers offense with Victor Oladipo out of the lineup. Oladipo’s return will cut into his minutes, but Holiday could in turn take minutes away from Darren Collison and Cory Joseph. Speculative long term add for fantasy owners. 4-games this scoring period.
Wendell Carter Jr.
Just 65.2% owned in ESPN fantasy basketball leagues. I was able to draft him for $3 in a keeper league. Has the highest defensive win share on the team at 0.2. Carter is averaging 11.1 PPG, 7.1 RPG, and 1.9 BPG. 3-games this week on the road Monday with the Knicks, Wednesday on the road with the Pelicans, followed by a Saturday home tilt with the Cavaliers. Buy low window may officially be closed on Carter Jr.
Knicks PG Frank Ntilikina
4-games this week Monday at home vs. the Bulls, on road Wednesday with the Hawks, Saturday vs. the Raptors, and Sunday back home against the Magic. 3 very good matchups for streaming. Ntilikina is a guard that can help daily players with defensive stats. Dynasty league players may want to pay attention to the 20-year-old Frenchman. Owned in just 7.3% of ESPN leagues.
Cavaliers C Tristan Thompson
With Kevin Love out for the next 6 weeks, Thompson should see significant run. Owners looking for boards and blocks should look to stream Thompson. 3-games this week a road matchup Monday with the Magic, home vs. the Thunder Wednesday, followed by a road game against the Bulls on Saturday. Thompson should be able to stuff the stat sheet vs. the Magic and Bulls. Owned in just 5.8% of ESPN leagues.
