Hope everyone had a good first week and got to know some of your main strengths and weaknesses. The rotations still aren't going to be terribly consistent, especially for streaming candidates, but there are definitely some solid options out there. So let's take a look.

Matt Barnes 21% ownership

5 games scheduled between Monday 31st October and Sunday 6th November.

This veteran's output varies from game to game, but he can chip in across the board. With 5 games this week he is worth one or two good performances. So far he has played over 25 minutes as the first man off the bench, but he's not an efficient player and is not going to help your FG%.

Justin Hamilton 20% ownership

3 games scheduled between Monday 31st October and Sunday 6th November.

Brook Lopez will apparently be resting randomly throughout the season and Hamilton is showing some flashes of being a solid fantasy contributor. Able to hit threes and block some shots, the rotation may be the only thing standing in his way to standard league relevancy. The Nets only play 3 games this week, but he was still in the rotation when Lopez was playing and the three's from a big-man are a nice fantasy touch.

Cody Zeller 24% ownership

2 games scheduled between Monday 31st October and Sunday 6th November.

With Hibbert going down, Charlotte has little other options than to put heavy minutes into Cody Zeller. He is recovering from a minor injury of his own (bone bruise), but going into his fourth NBA season and is a candidate to make some strides this year. His shot blocking is coming along as he rounds out his game as an NBA-caliber center. Charlotte only plays two games this week, so he's certainly no more than a streaming option for now.

Lance Stephenson 13% ownership

3 games scheduled between Monday 31st October and Sunday 6th November.

The Pelicans are desperate for competent bodies, and Lance has proven to be fantasy friendly when given the minutes. He can contribute across the board from the night-to-night because of his role and his minutes, but he has the talent if the Pel's wish to utilize it.

Dewayne Dedmon 11% ownership

3 games scheduled between Monday 31st October and Sunday 6th November.

He is shaping up to be a blocks specialist through this early season, and with news of Popovich already resting Aldridge on Sunday, Dedmon could carve out a consistent and respectable defensive role off the bench, even with David Lee on the team.

James Ennis 12% ownership

4 games scheduled between Monday 31st October and Sunday 6th November.

He should continue to do some scoring damage until the much-awaited return of Chandler Parsons. He is one of the less fluky options on this list and has delivered in the small sample size available.
