Each week our Fantasy Basketball experts will give fantasy owners their top choices for players to pick up for all leagues, as well as some players to consider in deeper leagues. If you have any Fantasy Basketball questions for our experts feel free to post them in post them in our Fantasy Sports Forum.

Add in all leagues

Ronnie Brewer Jazz | SG,SF

Brewer continues to fly under the radar in most fantasy leagues. He’s not going to blow you away with his scoring numbers, but he will put up a serviceable 12 points per game and if steals are a statistical category in your league you may want to give him a look. (about 60% owned)

Allen Iverson 76ers | PG,SG

The 76ers officially signed Allen Iverson on Wednesday and he should have an immediate impact due to the recent injury to Lou Williams, which will sideline him for close to eight weeks. Even when Williams returns we expect that Iverson may eventually start at point guard ahead of rookie Jrue Holiday. Either way, if he is available in your league snag him now and get him in your fantasy lineups for next week. (about 70% owned)

Brendon Haywood Wizards | C

Haywood continues to offer fantasy value despite not scoring a lot of points. On the year he is averaging a double-double and nearly 2 blocks per game. If you need help in these categories he’s worthy of a No. 2 Fantasy center. (about 75% owned)

Jonny Flynn Timberwolves | PG,SG

Flynn has shown he has a nice upside and it appears that he has secured his spot in the starting lineup over Ramon Sessions. Sessions will still get a share of the minutes, but as long as Flynn is logging nearly 30 minutes per game he will have decent fantasy value. (about 70% owned)


Add in Deeper Leagues

Samuel Dalembert 76ers | C

Dalembert had a season-high 19 rebounds, three steals and three blocks in 33 minutes on Monday and then followed that performance with just 2 points, 6 rebounds and zero blocks on Wednesday. Fantasy owners will have to deal with this kind of inconsistency all season, but he is still a good source of rebounds and blocks if you need help in those categories. (about 50% owned)

Nick Young Wizards | SG,SF

Young is filling in for the injured Mike Miller and should be a decent source of points while he is sidelined. While he doesn’t do much outside of scoring, he is a decent short-term add in at deeper leagues as long as he continues to start. (about 10% owned)

C.J. Watson Warriors | PG,SG

Watson has returned to action after a bout with swine flu and continues to log decent minutes off the bench. He may have a hard time retaining fantasy value while competing for playing time with Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry, and Anthony Morrow, but anything is possible with Don Nelson and the Warriors. (about 5% owned)

Chris Andersen Nuggets | PF,C

After a slow start to the season, Andersen has shown signs of returning to one of the leagues best shot blocking specialists. If you need blocks and a few extra rebounds you may want to consider the Birdman, just don’t expect much help in any other categories. (about 55% owned)

Luke Ridnour Bucks | PG

Ridnour appears to have avoided a serious hamstring injury and returned to action on Wednesday finishing with 20 points and 6 assists. Although he may be a bit inconsistent, Ridnour has been playing well of late and is worth an add in deeper leagues if you need help at the PG position. (about 25% owned)

Mike Dunleavy Pacers | SG,SF

Dunleavy has returned to action for the Pacers and although it may take a few games before he gets it going he is does have a nice upside. Dunleavy averaged 15 points and 4 rebounds in the 18 games he played last season and he should be close to those numbers this year if he can stay healthy. He’s definitely worth an add in deeper leagues as it is just a matter of time before he’s in the starting lineup, or at least logging around 30 minutes off the bench. (about 60% owned)

Courtney Lee Nets | SG,SF 45%

Lee re-joined the starting lineup and scored career-high 27 on Friday to help the Nets end a league-record 0-18 start. Lee should remain in the starting lineup and could play a big role on a team in desperate need of offense. Lee is also a nice source of steals. Grab him now if you can. (about 45% owned)

Players to Keep an eye on

DeJuan Blair Spurs | SF,PF

Blair has averaged a double-double in his last two games and has shown he could be a decent source of points and rebounds if given the opportunity. It does not look like he is a big enough part of the Spurs rotation to add him right now, but he has a good chance to earn more playing time as the year goes on. (about 10% owned)

Tyrus Thomas Bulls | SF,PF

Thomas is still recovering from a broken forearm, but rumors have been circulating about a possible trade to the Knicks in exchange for Al Harrington and Jerome James. Thomas would have a lot more value in the starting rotation on the uptempo Knicks offense but even if this trade does not happen Thomas averaged 10.9 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks per game last season, which are serviceable fantasy numbers in deeper leagues. (about 40% owned)

Quentin Richardson Heat | SG,SF

Richardson has returned from his back injury and is back in the starting lineup for the Heat. Although he may be too inconsistent for most fantasy owners, he can help teams that are desperate for 3-pointers but that’s about it. (about 13% owned)

Wesley Matthews Jazz | PG,SG

Matthews has been starting for the Jazz in place of C.J. Miles, but with Kyle Korver injured and Matt Harpring now out for the season, Matthews could continue to log decent minutes. He’s averaging 17.5 points over his last two games, but we’d see how the timeshare plays out between him and Miles before you run to the waiver wire. (about 2% owned)
