Deep League Relevant: 26th Jan - 1st Feb


If you're in any kind of competitive deep league DJ Augustin should be long gone. Today we're going to focus on players who should still be available in most 14 team deep leagues.

Brian Roberts (Charlotte Hornets, PG/SG)

Owned in 7% of Yahoo leagues.
2 games scheduled between Monday 26th January and Sunday 1st February.

Why is Brian worth adding?
If you've got a streaming spot on your roster go ahead and use it on Brian. Kemba Walker could be out for a few weeks, which means it's Brian's time to run the show. He's shown glimpses of producing good numbers in limited minutes and is capable of putting up nice lines if Kemba misses time. The only downside is that Charlotte only play twice this week.

Wayne Ellington (Los Angeles Lakers, SG)

Owned in 5% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 26th January and Sunday 1st February.

Why is Wayne worth adding?
When a team's starting 5 resembles a practice team it's time to raid the waiver wire to see who's available and producing. One of those players is Ellington. He's averaging 12 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists over his past 3 games. Not spectacular, but in deep leagues he can fill a need, even if it's only for a game or two.

Dorell Wright (Portland Trail Blazers, SG/SF)

Owned in 3% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 26th January and Sunday 1st February.

Why is Dorell worth adding?
Dorell looks to benefit the most from Batum's injury. He has shown in the past to be a good source of 3s and steals when given the playing time and it's only a matter of time before it happens.

Lance Thomas (New York Knicks, SG/SF/PF)

Owned in 3% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 26th January and Sunday 1st February.

Why is Lance worth adding?
New York is a mess right now and is desperately searching for somebody who can score for when they shut down Melo. Lance is still on a 10 day contract, but is worth a stash to see how the scenario pans out. At worst, he's a good short-term play.

Joe Ingles (Utah Jazz, SG/SF)

Owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 26th January and Sunday 1st February.

Why is Joe worth adding?
If Utah is determined to start Exum they'll want to make him feel as comfortable as possible by starting him alongside his close friend and fellow Australian, Joe Ingles. Joe is going to get you 3s and some nice assist numbers while he's starting, which could be for at least the next few weeks.

Jerami Grant (Philadelphia 76ers, SF)

Owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 26th January and Sunday 1st February.

Why is Jerami worth adding?
Jerami is the latest flavour of the week in Philadelphia and he's a chance to produce or bust. In deep leagues you're always going to take the odds of getting somebody with the potential to turn into a long term prospect and Jerami fits that description.
