Pacers SF/PF Thaddeus Young
3-game week at home with the Nets, and Blazers followed by a road tilt with the Heat. Young is a horrible free throw shooter, but helps with scoring, boards, and steals. I own Young in Weekly Points league. Available in nearly 70% of fantasy basketball leagues his ownership is too low. The rebuilding Pacers will rely more on Young this season than fantasy players realize.
Jazz SG Rodney Hood
3-game week home against the Nuggets, Wolves on road, then back home vs. the Thunder. Hood is owned in only 7 percent of fantasy basketball leagues at the time of this post. Huge opportunity is there to become Jazz leading scorer this season. I was surprised Hood only cost me $1 at the draft.
Hawks SF Taurean Prince
3 games all on the road with the Mavericks, Hornets, and Nets. Owned in around 2% of fantasy basketball leagues. Prince is a 3 and D type player on a rebuilding Hawks squad. Daily fantasy owners may want to slide Prince into their lineups this week.
