Wednesday's Pickups of the Day

Tuesday night was awesome in so many ways, but it ended on a terrible note. Julius Randle broke his leg and he's going to miss a ton of time. Sadly, fantasy owners will have to move on without him, but we had a lot happen and it led to a lot of pickups:

 

Jeremy Lin - He is still not owned in all leagues. Yes, he was a letdown, but beward of Patrick Beverley.

 

Elfrid Payton - He is going to be a ton of fun to watch, but don't expect him to be a great scorer.

 

Jordan Hill - Don't worry about the bad game here either.

 

Devin Harris - He is going to be a very Jamal Crawford-like guy.

 

Evan Fournier - It's pretty clear he's going to be an important guy in the offense.

 

Wes Johnson - His minutes are safe, he'll be a nice 3/steal/block guy and I'd think he has to play some stretch four.

 

Ed Davis - The clear winner of the Randle injury. Davis is a solid shot blocker and can shoot the ball well from the field, but he's not a great FT guy.

 

Aaron Gordon - Not a bad start at all. Of course, Channing Frye will mess him up.

 

Marco Belinelli - I'm not really buying him as a pickup with Kawhi Leonard back on Saturday.

 

Jordan Clarkson - He attempted four shots in 20 minutes and it looks like he'll be a high volume bench guy. For a rookie anyway.

 

Jason Terry - He kind of threw off our projections a bit, but I'm still generally not interested.

 

Robert Sacre - He'll be coming in behind Ed Davis, but we all know there isn't much upside to be had.

 

Jimmer Fredette - He won the backup PG job.

 

Ronnie Price - He'll be a popular plug-and-play guy in deep daily leagues.
