Kelly Oubre Jr. (Washington Wizards, SF)

Owned in 6% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 12th December and Sunday 18th December.

Why is Kelly worth adding?
Over the past 7 days, Kelly has averaged 10 PTS, 6 REB, 1.5 STL, 1.5 3PM, 47% FG and hasn’t missed a FT. More importantly, he has played 20+ minutes in his past 3 games, and is starting to gain the trust of head coach Scott Brooks, With the Wizards winning 3 of their past 4 games it’s hard to see Brooks changing a winning rotation.

Malcolm Brogdon (Milwaukee Bucks, SG)

Owned in 4% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 12th December and Sunday 18th December.

Why is Malcolm worth adding?
Malcolm has lit it up, scoring double-digit points and  below 50% FG over his past 3 games, while also hitting 2.6 3PM and 1.6 STL in 24 minutes of playing time. The steals and threes will be there, so long as he gets minutes (which, under Jason Kidd is literally a lottery), but so long as his number is being called he can be considered for a roster spot on your team.

Terry Rozier (Boston Celtics, PG)

Owned in 3% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 12th December and Sunday 18th December.

Why is Terry worth adding?
Minutes are up for grabs in Boston’s point guard rotation with Thomas out injured, and Rozier is in line to get some. Over the past 7 days he has averaged just under 24 minutes a game, with averages of 9.5 PTS, 4 REB, and 3 AST. Thomas is questionable for the next few games, which means more minutes for Rozier.

Jeremy Lamb (Charlotte Hornets, SG/SF)

Owned in 7% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 12th December and Sunday 18th December.

Why is Jeremy worth adding?
This is the part where I remind you how inconsistent of a player Lamb is, and how he’s just as likely to put up a 12 PTS, 6 REB game, as he is a 4 PTS, 2 REB game. But for deep leagues, you can afford to take a gamble on inconsistent players in hope that they’ll go through a hot streak. Lamb is worth looking at if you need rebounds from a wing player.

Omri Casspi (Sacramento Kings, SF/PF)

Owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 12th December and Sunday 18th December.

Why is Omri worth adding?
Deep leaguers from last season should remember what Omri is capable of when given the minutes, having averaged 11.8 PTS, 5.9 REB, and 1.6 3PM last season in 27 minutes of playing time - he just hasn’t had the opportunity this season. Add Omri to your watch list to monitor the minutes situation between Barnes and Casspi, now that he has strung together a few nice games.
