When it comes to pickups, you really have to think about the situation. Some teams are fairly consistent in their rotation and some are not. The freakin' Celtics played 12 players (!!!) in a close game on Wednesday. TWELVE! And the low man on the minutes was Tyler Zeller, who started their last game before Wednesday. Besides Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart, I want no part of this. I'm also not really too concerned with the Kings mixing up their rotation sans DeMarcus Cousins.
Otto Porter - I get some questions about adding Porter, no way he should be on wires.
Aaron Gordon - The upside is just so, so nice. He had a career-high 19 points.
Nik Stauskas - Green light. He took 14 trey attempts.
Alec Burks - More point guard minutes are coming and he's still not hitting on all cylinders.
Mo Williams - He should be top 100 for the next month, but Kyrie will crush him a bit.
T.J. McConnell - He's had an epic start for an undrafted guy. He's close to must-own for short-term value.
Mason Plumlee - If you're in a standard league, I'd put him here. Points? No. 2 on this list.
Trey Burke - I'm still not sold, but he is playing very well.
Steven Adams - He's found a very nice role for boards and blocks.
Alex Len - Please play him, Hornacek. If he gets 22-25 minutes, he'll be so good. He had 22 minutes on Wednesday with 16 points and seven boards.
T.J. Warren - He's had a good game in three of his last four and he's taking treys.
Kosta Koufos - Trill had a 0.0 usage rate while Koufos had 16 points, seven baords and two blocks.
Marcus Thornton - He scored 18 and probably has value for another week.
Matthew Dellavedova - A backup guard with a low usage rate is not my style.
Richard Jefferson - 35 minutes, six shots from the field and not much else.
Dewayne Dedmon - Vooch should be OK from his knee injury.
Glenn Robinson III - Surprised to see he played 19 minutes. Looked good too with 10 points.
