Deep League Relevant: 8th Dec - 14th Dec

Welcome to the sixth (kind of late) installment of deep league relevant. Somebody (me) clumsily dropped water on my laptop and I had to wait a few days to get a new one. Moral of the story, always insure your laptop! Today we look at players who are owned in less than 10% of Yahoo leagues and should still be available in deep 14+ team leagues.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute

Owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 8th December and Sunday 14th December.

Why is Luc worth adding?
Luc has been a stealing (or steaking for those from r/fantasybball on reddit) machine these past few weeks and is still only owned in 2% of leagues. If you can take the FG% hit and you need the steals get him into your line-up!

Khris Middleton

Owned in 7% of Yahoo leagues.
2 games scheduled between Monday 8th December and Sunday 14th December.

Why is Khris worth adding?
Kris has quietly been putting up some nice roto friendly numbers these past few weeks, even though he only plays twice this week it may be worth getting him into your team while he’s still in Kidd’s good books.

Cory Joseph

Owned in 5% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 8th December and Sunday 14th December.

Why is Cory worth adding?
This is as short of a short-term add you’d want to get. Tony Parker’s pesky hamstring injury has returned and if there’s one thing we know about Pop is that he’s more than happy to give his aging vets a few extra days to recover from an injury. Another thing we know about the Spurs is their bench players have a tendency to step up big when filling in for an injured starter.

Jason Thompson

Owned in 7% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 8th December and Sunday 14th December.

Why is Jason worth adding?
With Cousins going from day-to-day to week-to-week to potentially not being back until January means there’s an opening for his minutes and stats. Enter Jason Thompson, the likely big man to try and fill Boogie’s shoes.

Reggie Evans

Owned in 4% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 8th December and Sunday 14th December.

Why is Reggie worth adding?
Another player making the most of Cousins injury. Reggie is a rebounding machine, just don't expect him to do anything else!

CJ Watson

Owned in 4% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 8th December and Sunday 14th December.

Why is CJ worth adding?
George Hill still hasn’t returned, which means there’s still a void to fill at the PG spot. CJ is the kind of vet you know will get you some 3s when given the minutes.

JJ Hickson

Owned in 9% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 8th December and Sunday 14th December.

Why is JJ worth adding?
The manimal is in the dog house again, which means JJ Hickson is eating up some of his minutes. If you need some points and rebounds and Thompson isn’t available, take a look at Hickson, just be sure to monitor Denver’s minutes situation as it tends to fluctuate a lot.

Still relevant

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

Greivis Vasquez (33% owned), James Johnson (10% owned), Tyler Zeller (15% owned), Rasual Butler (21% owned), Cody Zeller (6% owned), Kyle O’Quinn (14% owned).
