Thursday's Pickups of the Day

Coach Brad Stevens is one of the toughest coaches to predict. He was starting to have some tendencies, but not anymore with Jae Crowder (ankle) out for at least a week.

 

I'm assuming T.J. Warren is already scooped up.

 

Otto Porter - He is still under-owned somehow. Porter should be a stud this year.

 

Dario Saric - The Homie should get a role no matter where he logs his minutes. Hold him. He played some center tonight, too.

 

Nikola Mirotic - He closed out again and his minutes have been consistent.

 

Julius Randle - He's getting more run at center and should fare better in some upcoming matchups, too.

 

Sean Kilpatrick - He played PG in college and will play there while Jeremy Lin (hamstring) is out. Love this guy.

 

Terrence Jones - He's back after a DNP-CD on Tuesday.

 

Marcus Smart - He could bust out, but I'd feel better about adding him after he can make shots.

 

Alex Len - Two good ones in a row.

 

Amir Johnson - He looks to be the top non-Horford guy.

 

Joe Johnson - He's been superb, but Gordon Hayward (finger) will be back soon.

 

Langston Galloway, Buddy Hield and Lance Stephenson - I wouldn't add these guys unless you're cutting garbage. Gentry is giving us a headache.

 

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - The run at PF has helped him on D stats.

 

Ersan Ilyasova - Ghostface Ilya could spit hot fire in Philly. He is still one of the most inconsistent players in fantasy over the past decade, so he's not the strongest add.

 

Frank Kaminsky - He's played better and should thrive against smaller teams.

 

Richaun Holmes - If not for foul trouble, we would've talked about Holmes more.

 

Larry Nance - He looks like the big winner from the Mozzy injury.

 

Isaiah Whitehead - He's the last man standing at point guard right now. TOs and percentages will be horrible, though.

 

Jaylen Brown - A horrible game on Wednesday, but he'll be better.

 

Tyler Zeller - The minutes will be all over the place once Horford comes back.

 

Jonas Jerebko - He closed, but this isn't going to be fun to figure out for fantasy owners.

 

Patrick Patterson - The Pascal Siakam run seems to be dipping. Two-Pat should get consistent run soon.

 

Nick Young - He's kind of locked in for minutes. You could do worse in deep leagues.

 

Jerami Grant - Has to learn how to shoot.

 

Jon Leuer - Andre Drummond looks lost. Leuer closed at center.

 

K.J. McDaniels - Four blocks, but playing time is a question mark.

 

Ivica Zubac - SOON. He had some mistakes, but starting him is a great sign.

 

Meyers Leonard - Got a lot of run. Don't trust Stotts, though.

 

Montrezl Harrell - D'Antoni is going to drive us nuts with the center rotation.

 

Tarik Black- Obviously Walton doesn't trust him.

 

Jerian Grant - The new backup behind Rondo with MCW out.
