Add in all leagues:

Thaddeus Young 76ers | SF, PF

Young was one of our favorite sleepers coming into the year. Last season’s disappointment and injury to Elton Brand gave Young an opportunity to learn on the job as he played starter minutes for most of the second half of the year. This season it looks as if he has graduate and he should be universal owned. Young is logging 35 minutes a game and has the chance to be a 15 point, 6 board, 3 assist guy. (about 72% owned)


Roy Hibbert Pacers  | C

It looks as if Center U might have produced another double double 3 block machine. Roy Hibbert had a great pre-season and with some key injuries to Jeff Foster and Troy Murphy he got a chance to step up this season. Hibbert has been playing great and even when the Pacers are fully healthy we believe he has earned the starting job for the entire season. If you need boards or even a block specialist Hibbert is your guy. (about 65% owned)

Brendan Haywood Wizards | C

When you think about the Washington Bullets – we mean Wizards (we live in the DC area and still the name change gets us) health has been a major issue the last few years mainly the heatlh of one Gilbert Arenas. The loss of Gil definitely hurt the Wiz however, Haywood went down early last season and he was missed greatly. This season he is playing 33 minutes a game averaging a double double and has a spring in his step. Just like Hibbert he is great score of boards and blocks. (about 66% owned)

Rodney Stuckey Pistons  | PG

Stuckey was everyone’s favorite sleeper a year ago – it looks like everyone was a year too early. Stuckey is having a great season averaging 16 points and 4 assists however, his 6 boards a game is most impressive at this point. Stuckey is the starter and will be the entire season is you need to make your team better then pick him up. (about 74% owned)

Add in deep leagues:

Carl Landry Rockets | SF, PF

With Yao Ming out everyone fingered Luis Scola to have huge numbers however, Yao had a ton of numbers to go around and Carl Landry is picking up some of that slack as well. Landry is averaging 20.5 points his last four games while averaging 25 minutes. He is worth an add in deep leagues but we find it hard to believe he will keep up this hot scoring pace. (about 45% owned)

Kelenna Azubuike Warriors | SG, SF

Azubuike has always been one of Nellie’s favorites and now he finds himself back into the starting line-up. Azubuike can be a good source of points however, he will be up and down type of player. If we knew he would get steady minutes he would be on the must add for all leagues list but with Nellie at the helm he might not play a second the next game. Nellie has officially moved in front of Mike Shanahah as most frustrating fantasy coaches of all time. (about 47% owned)

Raja Bell Bobcats | SG

Raja Bell is a few years removed from his run and gun team the Phoenix Suns but he is still an excellent source of threes. This year Bobcats head coach cant talk enough about Bell and the leadership he brings to his young team. Brown is playing Bell 30+ minutes a game and as previous stated is an excellent source of threes however, due to these minutes he will not only get about two threes a game but a steal and a couple assists. (about 14% owned)

Beno Udrih Kings  | PG

Coming into this season Udrih was slated to the starting point guard for the Kings however, after a strong pre-season and first few games Tyreke Evans won the job and Beno was dropped across the board. Fast forward a few weeks and a Kevin Martin injury and Beno is back into fantasy relavence. Beno should be good source of points and assists for the next seven weeks that is when Martin is slated to return. (about 27% owned)

Darren Collison Hornets  | PG

Chris Paul went down with what looks like a bad ankle injury. At first glance he may miss an extended period of time if this is the case rookie Darren Collison has a nice increase in value. Collison stepped in for Paul to score 18 points in 24 minutes and by no means looked like a rookie. He lead the team on the court and even off the court became vocal in the huddle. If you have a spot he might worth picking up as the extent of Paul injury is relived. (about 1% owned)
