Deep League Relevant: 30th Nov - 6th Dec


Welcome to another edition of deep league relevant, where we focus on players who are owned in 10% of Yahoo leagues or less and should be available in most 14 team deep leagues.


OJ Mayo (Milwaukee Bucks, PG/SG)

Owned in 3% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 30th November and Sunday 6th December.

Why is OJ worth adding?
While Mayo is stuck in a PG/SG positional log jam that almost rivals the Boston PF/C situation, one thing that’s comforting is the minutes he’s playing.

With an average of 29 minutes per game over the past week (44 in his most recent game, which he started in) and a season average of 26 minutes since coming back from injury 6 games ago it’s a sign that the Bucks aren’t afraid to shake up their starting line-up, which is desperate for 3 point shooting (something which Mayo provides), which is enough for a speculative add to see how the situation plays out over the next few weeks.


Hollis Thompson (Philadelphia 76ers, SG/SF)

Owned in 4% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 30th November and Sunday 6th December.

Why is Hollis worth adding?
Those familiar with these articles from last season will be familiar with the hot and cold nature of Hollis Thompson.

One month he’s worth rostering and the next he’s not enough minutes to be 16 team relevant). This month seems to be the month to get him in your line-up with an average of 13 PTS, 2.5 3PM and 1.3 STL over the past 7 days.


Omri Casspi (Sacramento Kings, SF)

Owned in 10% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 30th November and Sunday 6th December.

Why is Omri worth adding?
It may be his poor FT% (59% on 2 attempts a game for the season), but a player like Omri should be owned in more than 10% of Yahoo leagues.

For the past 14 days he has been putting up averages of 12 PTS, 7 REB, 1.7 3PM and a clean 50% from the field, which is pretty consistent with his current season averages. If he fits your team build he’s worth rostering if he’s available.


Mirza Teletovic (Phoenix Suns, SF/PF)

Owned in 3% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 30th November and Sunday 6th December.

Why is Mirza worth adding?
Mirza has quietly been tallying some nice 3 point outings (most recently 6 in his last game against Toronto) and has been averaging 2.9 3PM over the past 14 days along with 11 PTS, 3 REB and 0.8 BLK. If you’re in need of 3PM then take a look at Mirza.


If you want to go even deeper (those in 16-20 team leagues) take a look at players like Patty Mills (San Antonio Spurs, PG, owned in 5% of Yahoo leagues), Channing Frye (Orlando Magic, PF/C, owned in 1% of Yahoo leagues), Andrew Nicholson (Orlando Magic, PF, owned in 1% of Yahoo leagues), Cody Zeller (Charlotte Hornets, PF/C, owned in 4% of Yahoo leagues), Raymond Felton (Dallas Mavericks, PG/SF, owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues) and Jared Dudley (Washington Wizards, SG/SF, owned in 3% of Yahoo leagues).
