Sorry for the very late post. However, I didn’t have time earlier, and I really wanted to get this out to you!
5. Isaiah Canaan (7.8% Owned on ESPN)
T.J. McConnell’s recent inconsistency has caused Canaan to see an increase in minutes. Until Tony Wroten returns from injury, Canaan should see 30+ minutes a game, and he’ll be a very good scorer, especially from beyond the arc.
4. Luis Scola (21.7% Owned on ESPN)
As a part of Toronto’s starting five, Scola has flourished as of late. He’ll see enough minutes to be a viable fantasy option, and he’s a good rebounder and surprisingly solid shooter. He can easily hit a three pointer and score 15 a game, but he does need some work apart from the scoring and rebounding.
3. Jordan Hill (25.3% Owned on ESPN)
I know Hill is injured right now so it may be smart to wait it out to pick him up until he’s healthy. However, when healthy he’ll be a constant double-double threat. I had him as a sleeper so even after his relatively poor performance out of the gate, I believe the beginning of the year was the anomaly, and that the recent performances will reflect the rest of the year. 10-13 points and 7-10 rebounds a game would seem realistic from here on out.
2. T.J. Warren (7.0% Owned on ESPN)
Warren is slowly worming his way into a bigger role in Phoenix and I believe is on the verge of surpassing P.J. Tucker on the depth chart given his superior play. Warren is a high volume scorer and 20 a game honestly shouldn’t be a problem. That being said, if you’re in a categories league and don’t need a scorer, Warren may not be the answer for you since that’s the only area he’ll provide value in.
1. Ronde Hollis-Jefferson (12.6% Owned on ESPN)
Brooklyn needs something right now given their 3-13 record. I don’t know definitively if the rookie out of Arizona is the answer. However, what I do know is that he can put up complete stat lines shockingly well. In fact, he somewhat resembles Danny Green with that ability, making him a bit underrated. The big difference between the two though is that Hollis-Jefferson can’t score. He may only score 6 a game, but I love his upside due to the rebounding, steals, and percentages he provides.
