Robert Covington and K.J. McDaniels didn't build off their big weekends, but that's OK. I wouldn't be worried or cut them for really any player on this list.

 

Andrew Wiggins - He filled it up, but the poor foul shooting is a major concern.

 

Devin Harris - Jameer Nelson is hurt, so Harris becomes a strong start.

 

Amare Stoudemire - He should have better games and the Knicks are just awful.

 

Marreese Speights - Mr. Usage Rate. He should be worth starting while Andrew Bogut is hurt.

 

Zach LaVine - The Wolves should have him for a couple more at least.

 

Tyler Zeller - His minutes look pretty safe.

 

Mason Plumlee - The Nets are in trouble and Kevin Garnett is hurt now.

 

Marco Belinelli - When the Spurs sit guys, Bello will be worth a look. He's going to be inconsistent unless Kawhi Leonard needs to miss time.

 

Kyle O'Quinn - Nikola Vucevic could miss a few more, so KOQ will be worth starting.

 

C.J. Miles - He dropped 30 points, but he'll probably miss 15 shots his next time out.

 

Marcus Thornton - The minutes are not there, so he'll be on a bumpy ride.

 

Jerami Grant - He should get minutes with Brandon Davies headed to Brooklyn.

 

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - The Hornets wil probably take it easy on him for a bit.

 

Lavoy Allen - The Pacers need him to play well off the bench.

 

J.J. Barea - He doesn't have a high enough usage rate to be used in most leagues.

 

Kyle Anderson - Nice start! He's not a fantasy option, though.

 

Sergey Karasev - He played 31 minutes because Bojan Bogdanovic is struggling.
