Deep League Relevant: 19th Jan - 25th Jan


Last week we found the next Jusuf Nurkic, it's just a shame they play the same position on the same team. Hickson went on a tear last week averaging 13.3 points and 10.7 rebounds. He's still only owned in 13% of Yahoo leagues, so if you need rebounds, he's your man.

Let's see if we can find another highly productive player that should still be available in most 12-14 team deep leagues.

Kris Humphries

Owned in 7% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 19th January and Sunday 25th January.

Why is Kris worth adding?
Have we all forgotten about Kris again? It seems like this guy is never going to recover from being Kardashian’ed. Kris put up top 90 numbers last week, and doing it in only 20 minutes a game. Expect him to carry on from last week's 10.8 point, 7.3 rebound average with a Monday game against the 76ers.

Jerryd Bayless

Owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 19th January and Sunday 25th January.

Why is Jerryd worth adding?
This is more of a stash-and-see type suggestion. With Marshall tearing his ACL last week it gives the opportunity for Bayless to get more minutes. Stash and hope he produces.

Tiago Splitter

Owned in 8% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 19th January and Sunday 25th January.

Why is Tiago worth adding?
In true Spurs fashion Tiago is quietly putting up some efficient numbers. He's not going to put up any double-doubles, but he's assured the starting spot for at least the week, so let's see what he can do with a consistent run of 20+ minutes a game.

Shane Larkin

Owned in 3% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 19th January and Sunday 25th January.

Why is Shane worth adding?
The Knicks only played one game last week and given his injury cloud, Shane should still be available on the waiver wire. The Knicks are still trying to shop Calderon to anybody willing to take his contract, which makes Shane another stash-and-see option.

Tarik Black

Owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 19th January and Sunday 25th January.

Why is Tarik worth adding?
Tarik has been getting decent playing since joining the Lakers and has been putting up serviceable numbers. He's not going to steal the starting spot from Jordan Hill any time soon (have you read Eric Dadmun's recent player spotlight on Jordan Hill?, but as the Lakers season gets worse expect them to give their young mob some extra minutes.
