Editor's Note: Rotoworld's partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $50,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Monday night's games. It's $25 to join and first prize is $7,500. Starts at 7pm ET on Monday. Here's the FanDuel link.

 
Kendall Marshall - He obviously needs to be picked up.
 
Kenneth Faried - He had a double-double on Sunday and might be getting back in the good graces of Brian Shaw.
 
Brandan Wright - We're still waiting for a boom from Wright. He only had seven points, five boards and one assist.
 
Randy Foye - He is starting to heat up again and had 14 points, four boards, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.
 
Harrison Barnes - I wouldn't call him a pickup since he's probably only available in smaller leagues. Barnes is playing better with 13 points, six boards, three assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.
 
Iman Shumpert - The points were not there, but he had a solid line of nine points, six boards, three steals and one 3-pointer.
 
Jeremy Lamb - He is doing a variety of things in the stat sheet these days. Sunday it was his six assists to go with 13 points, three boards and three 3-pointers.
 
Nate Robinson - He could get some extra playing time and would handle the ball more with Andre Miller's status up in the air. Lil' Him had 21 points, five boards, five assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 20 minutes.
 
Kelly Olynyk - He scored seven points with eight boards, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes. I'd like to see it again before adding him, though.
 
Robert Sacre - Ugh. Mike D'Antoni
 
DeJuan Blair - Samuel Dalembert was a DNP-CD on Sunday. Meanwhile, Blair had 11 points, five boards and one steal in 26 minutes.
 
C.J. Miles - He scored 21 points and the Cavs counted on him for their scoring with no help. He's worth a look with a nice matchup on the horizon (Tuesday vs. Philly).
 
Amare Stoudemire - He has been stringing games together and had 11 points, seven boards and one block in 22 minutes. Still, STAT is more of a ticking time bomb.
 
Timofey Mozgov - He scored 20 points with seven boards, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 21 minutes. 
 
Norris Cole - Mario Chalmers has an Achilles injury, so Cole will likely take over as the starting point guard. He finished with seven points, three boards, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.
 
Courtney Lee - He gains some value on the Grizzlies considering they have no perimeter help outside of Mike Conley and Mike Miller.
 
Michael Beasley - He is really only worth a look on the days Dwyane Wade sits out.
 
Patrick Patterson - He is a much better fit for the Raptors on offense, but the defense isn't there yet. Tyler Hansbrough's minutes are going to be down once he comes back.
 
Matthew Dellavedova - He could get the start on Tuesday vs. the Sixers. Considering the nice matchup, there might be worse plug-n-play guys.
 
Beno Udrih -Raymond Felton should be back soon, so there isn't any real reason to pick up Udrih.
 
Danny Granger - The more I watch him, the less I am impressed. He can't drive past anyone. Granger did play a season-high 26 minutes on Sunday.
 
Jon Leuer - Marc Gasol should be back at some point this month, so there is little reason to be excited about Leuer's 23-point game on Sunday.
 
Will Bynum - Rodney Stuckey won't be out long, but Bynum should put up some stats in the next couple games. He had seven points, four dimes and a trey in 21 minutes on Sunday.
 
Kenyon Martin - He scored 14 points with six boards, two assists and one block.
