RUSSELL WESTBROOK IS BACK! YAY!

 

Anyway, here are some guys who came on for Black Friday.

 

Lou Williams - Must own player.

 

Mo Williams - Must own player.

 

David West - He's back! An 18-point game is a nice start.

 

Amir Johnson - He is a very solid asset in standards.

 

DeMarre Carroll - He's still underowned in several formats.

 

Rodney Stuckey - He is getting very hot, so give him a look.

 

Amare Stoudemire - The Knicks need him to be great. Wow, they're bad by the way.

 

Greivis Vasquez - He should be picked up if you need a point guard.

 

Chris Kaman - He's taking minutes away from Robin Lopez.

 

James Johnson - I love his upside on defense.

 

Terrence Ross - The inconsistency is a killer.

 

Nikola Mirotic - It wasn't his best game to the untrained eye, but I think it was. He looks great and should be solid while Taj is out.

 

Zach LaVine - I don't love him as a pickup, but wow he was great.

 

Devin Harris - Jameer Nelson (back) should return soon.

 

Ersan Ilyasova - He made the most of Larry Sanders' foul trouble.

 

Ben McLemore - He is getting more shots, but can't make them consistently.

 

Cody Zeller - The Hornets need a power forward. He's also been much better this season, especially on offense.

 

Marreese Speights - David Lee will come back and crush him.

 

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - The body of work on the season trumps this 21- point gem.

 

Brian Roberts - I think he is going to earn a small role even when the team is healthy. He should be worth owning while Gary Neal is out.

 

Brandon Bass - I'm not worried about Kelly Olynyk yet.

 

Tarik Black - Black Friday!!!

 

Ryan Hollins - No thanks.

 

Jason Terry - He is so old that his minutes won't be there.

 

Nick Johnson and Troy Daniels - I'd take Troy for his treys first.
