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

Omri Casspi Kings | SG,SF,PF

Casspi continues to play well as he scored 21 points on Wednesday and is now averaging 22.5 points in his last four games. While Kevin Martin’s return and Tyreke Evans’ full recovery from a sprained ankle will hurt his value, he’s still worth an add in most Fantasy leagues at this point. (about 51% owned)

Yi Jianlian Nets | PF

In the seven games since his return from a knee injury Yi has averaged 20.3 points per game, including a career high-tying 29 points. With the ability to score and rebound, Yi’s a must-start in most Fantasy leagues. (about 65% owned)

Louis Williams 76ers | PG,SG

Williams scored 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting against the Wizards on Tuesday and is now averaging 18 points over his last four games. More important than these numbers is the fact he did it alongside Allen Iverson in the starting lineup. (about 70% owned)

Nate Robinson Knicks | PG,SG

After scoring 41 points in a return from a long inactive streak, Robinson shot just 2-of-11 from the field and scored only six points in the following game. You can expect this kind of inconsistency from Robinson, but the good news is he is playing and it looks like he has replaced Larry Hughes in the Knicks’ rotation. If you are in need of some points you may want to give Robinson a look. (about 55% owned)

Kenyon Martin Nuggets | PF

K-Mart scored a season-high 27 points and also grabbed a season-high 13 rebounds in Tuesday’s win against Golden State. That marks his fifth double-double in his last six games. We’re not sure how long this kind of production will last, but you might as well ride it out while you can. (about 65% owned)


Add in deeper leagues

Randy Foye Wizards | PG,SG

Foye is one of the players that will see a nice bump in value due to Gilbert Arenas’ indefinite suspension. Mike Miller and Randy Foye will likely start in the back court for the Wizards and Foye has shown he can have Fantasy relevance if given the minutes. Last season Foye averaged 16.3 points, 4.3 assists and 3.1 rebounds as Minnesota’s starting PG so he could be a viable Fantasy option if you are looking for a guard. (about 40% owned)

Nick Young Wizards | SG,SF

Young is another player that should pick up a few extra minutes for the Wizards without Gilbert Arenas. Unfortunately, those extra minutes will also be shared with Mike Miller, Randy Foye, and Earl Boykins, but if Young can log 25-plus minutes a night he may be worth a look in deeper leagues. (about 10% owned)

Rafer Alston Heat | PG

Alston signed with Miami on Thursday on we expect that he’ll take over the starting PG duties. Alston is known to be inconsistent at times, but he should be a nice source of points, steals, assists, and three-pointers if you need help in any of those categories. Just keep in mind his field goal percentage will be around 40%. (about 15% owned)

Martell Webster Trailblazers | SG,SF

Webster has scored 20 or more points in three consecutive games and hit 14 three-pointers during that span. We expect these numbers to dip once Steve Blake (illness) returns to the Blazer’s lineup, but until then Webster is worth at least a short-term add in deeper leagues. (about 25% owned)

Luther Head Pacers | PG,SG

Head is averaging nearly 22 points in his last four games, however those numbers are likely to dip once Danny Granger returns to action. Head’s only Fantasy value is points and three-pointers since he barely contributes in any other category, but if he continues to start he may be worth consideration in deeper leagues. (about 20% owned)

Matt Barnes Magic | SG,SF

Barnes played just 22 minutes and totaled just six points in Wednesday’s loss to Toronto. The good news is, he still appears to have the slight edge over Mickael Pietrus as the starting small forward for the Magic. Barnes is not a reliable Fantasy option at this point, but if he can hold on to his starting spot he may be worth a gamble in deep leagues. (about 25% owned)

Juwan Howard Trailblazers | SF,PF,C

Howard is averaging over 12 points and 6 rebounds per game in his last four starts and remains a serviceable Fantasy option with season-ending injuries to both Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla. If you are in need of a center in deeper leagues, Howard is worth a look. (about 10% owned)

Players to Keep an Eye on

Taj Gibson Bulls | SF,PF

Gibson continues to start at power forward for the Bulls despite the return of Tyrus Thomas. Gibson only had borderline Fantasy value when Thomas was out, but it may be worth keeping an eye on this timeshare in deeper leagues. (about 10% owned)

Earl Boykins Wizards | PG

Boykins is another player that should see an increase in minutes for the Arenas-less Wizards. Boykins can provide a spark off the bench and can put up a decent amount of points in a short amount of time, but just how much time will he get is the question? (about 4% owned)
