Yeah, the Knicks are bad, but every team plays 48 minutes. Here's how I'd rank them for pickups in standard leagues:

 

Jose Calderon - He'll be better.

 

Tim Hardaway Jr. - He has to be better.

 

Cole Aldrich - He doesn't have any major holes and should get minutes in the mid 20s. That's solid.

 

Chris Kaman - He's been hurt too often for my liking.

 

Hassan Whiteside - The blocks are definitely there.

 

Cleanthony Early - I think he's probably my favorite and he could break out too.

 

Gerald Henderson - He doesn't hit treys or bring D. That hurts.

 

Langston Galloway - The new Gallo! He had a nice usage and ran the offense nicely.

 

Donatas Motiejunas - He's on his way down soon and will lose value with Terrence Jones returning.

 

Marvin Williams - Cody Zeller shouldn't be out long.

 

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - A two-cat guy with three negatives. No thanks.

 

Quincy Acy - The usage numbers are too low and he's not a blocker.

 

Travis Wear - Low usage and his value is all on Carmelo.

 

Shane Larkin - He's only a two-cat guy.

 

Pablo Prigioni - He doesn't handle the ball enough.

 

Jason Smith - He has a very low ceiling and won't play big minutes.
