Deep League Relevant: 2nd Feb - 8th Feb


We go hunting again for players who should be available in most 14 team deep leagues.

Jason Smith (New York Knicks, PF/C)

Owned in 7% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 2nd February and Sunday 8th February.

Why is Jason worth adding?
Eric touched on Jason Smith in his February Fantasy Rising & Falling Stocks article (as a rising, obviously) and I agree with him. He has a history of producing when given the playing time and he seems to be getting it in New York. Last week he put up top 90 numbers and doesn't look like slowing down.

Joe Ingles (Utah Jazz, SG/SF)

Owned in 6% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 2nd February and Sunday 8th February.

Why is Joe worth adding?
Joe got a mention in last week’s list and I'm suggesting him again since he's still only owned in 6% of Yahoo leagues. If you need poor man Batum numbers (the Batum we expected, but didn't get this year) then Joe is your guy. Last week he averaged 7 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 2.3 steals and a 3.

Jerryd Bayless (Milwaukee Bucks, PG/SG)

Owned in 4% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 2nd February and Sunday 8th February.

Why is Jerryd worth adding?
Jerryd is lighting it up (as much as a back-up point guard can). Last week he put up top 60 value, scoring 15 points and hasn't shot below 50% from the field in his past 4 games. Ride his hot streak until he gets cold.

Dennis Schroder (Atlanta Hawks, PG)

Owned in 3% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 2nd February and Sunday 8th February.

Why is Dennis worth adding?
Dennis is on a happy Atlanta Hawks team who like to share the ball, last week he put up 11 points, 5 assists, a steal and a three on 52% shooting from the field. If you need some plug-and-play point and assist options and Bayless isn't available then take a look at Dennis.

Robert Sacre (Los Angeles Lakers, C)

Owned in 1% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 2nd February and Sunday 8th February.

Why is Robert worth adding?
I feel a little dirty adding Robert Sacre to this list, but in the past week he averaged 27 minutes a game as the Lakers starting center and put up top 80 value doing so. With Jordan Hill possibly missing a few games it only adds to Sacre's short-term value.

Tyler Johnson (Miami Heat, SG)

Owned in 0% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 2nd February and Sunday 8th February.

Why is Tyler worth adding?
I'll forgive you for not knowing who this kid is because I didn't know either. Tyler is fighting for a roster spot for the remainder of the year and is currently on a 10 day contract. You know he's going to give it 100% while he's out there and could very well be a nice add for the week while Wade is still injured.
