Deep League Relevant: 22nd Dec - 28th Dec

Welcome to the eighth instalment of deep league relevant. Today we’re going to focus on finding players that are the hardest kind to find on the WW, centers, as well as a Dudley.

Jonas Jerebko

Owned in 1% of Yahoo leagues.
2 games scheduled between Monday 22nd December and Sunday 28th December.

Why is Jonas worth adding?
Jonas is looking to be the guy still available in deep leagues that is going to benefit the most from the shocking (or not so shocking, depending on whether you’re a Detroit fan) cutting of Josh Smith from the Detroit roster. Look to get him on your roster as a wait-and-see stash.

Alex Len

Owned in 5% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 22nd December and Sunday 28th December.

Why is Alex worth adding?
Alex is finally starting to show us why he won the starting spot in Phoenix and has quietly swatted away 11 shots in his past 4 games. If you need blocks from a starter still with up-side, Alex is your guy.

Jared Dudley

Owned in 5% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 22nd December and Sunday 28th December.

Why is Jared worth adding?
By default is the best way to summarise Jared’s recent increase in playing time. Milwaukee players seem to be getting injured on the regular so expect to see Jared’s numbers increase and become rosterable in deep leagues.

Chris Anderson

Owned in 3% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 22nd December and Sunday 28th December.

Why is Chris worth adding?
We all know what the bird-man can do (on the basketball court), so long as he’s in the starting line-up and Chris Bosh is still out injured he’s worth a roster spot in most deep leagues.

Jon Leuer

Owned in 1% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 22nd December and Sunday 28th December.

Why is Chris worth adding?
Jon has always been a guy touted for his potential, but has never really had an opportunity in Memphis. With ZBO’s injury it means he can now showcase his skills and hopefully earn himself a few extra minutes in the rotation once ZBO returns. Take a short-term add with Jon while he’s in the starting line-up.

Jusuf Nurkic

Owned in 1% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 22nd December and Sunday 28th December.

Why is Jusuf worth adding?
Jusuf is sneaking in some steady minutes in the 15-20 range and is producing some ok numbers, if all of the other options have been taken Jusuf isn’t a bad last resort.

Still relevant

Players on last week's add list that should still be available on your waiver wire and are still relevant this week.

Chris Kaman (18% owned), Festus Ezeli (0% owned), Jerryd Bayless (6% owned).
