Note: All players must have an ownership rate that does not exceed 25 percent on the Yahoo platform.
Raymond Felton (11%), J.J. Barea (16%) & Devin Harris (2%), G Dallas Mavericks: With the news that Deron Williams (groin, abdominal) has no timetable to return, I’ve listed the other Dallas point guards in the order in which I prefer them moving forward. However, if you need 3-pointers, grabbing Barea over Felton—a clear Rick Carlisle favorite—makes sense.
JaMychal Green, PF Memphis Grizzlies (20%): Zach Randolph (knee, ankle) isn’t exactly a lock to stay on the floor, and Green is going to have a starting gig whenever Z-Bo sits. Prior to Monday’s game vs. San Antonio, Green was averaging 11.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 0.8 blocks on 44.0% shooting as a member of the first five.
Shane Larkin, PG Brooklyn Nets (16%): I ran out of patience for Larkin when he couldn’t beat out Donald Sloan earlier this season, but he plays five times this week and has to prove he’s an NBA player before again hitting free agency. If you need assists and steals and have someone to cut, adding Barry’s son becomes a more palatable scenario.
John Henson, F/C Milwaukee Bucks (13%): Henson would be a lot more attractive if the Bucks played more than just three times this week, but he’s averaging 16.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks on 66.7% shooting over his last few games. At the very least, don’t overlook him as an upside streaming option with difference-making potential in the blocks category.
Jordan Farmar, PG Memphis Grizzlies (3%): Memphis plays four times this week, and while Farmar is now starting at point guard for the Grizzlies, you should be able to find a better option despite his favorable schedule.
Moe Harkless, F Portland Trail Blazers (3%): Entering Monday’s matchup vs. Sacramento, Harkless had played at least 25 minutes in three straight, averaging 13.3 points, 6.7 rebounds and a block. He plays four times this week.
Norman Powell, SG Toronto Raptors (0%): Terrence Ross (thumb) is still sidelined, and Powell has clearly passed James Johnson on the depth chart. Before registering another nice line on Monday, Powell was averaging 14.0 points, 5.5 boards, 2.0 dimes and 2.5 triples in his previous two games.
Carl Landry, F/C Philadelphia 76ers (8%): Nerlens Noel (knee), Richaun Holmes (Achilles) and Jerami Grant (knee, quad) are all likely to miss additional time, meaning Landry—who is averaging 16.7 points and 5.7 rebounds on 62.5% shooting—should have at least one more matchup (vs. CHA) before his shelf life expires.
