Fantasy basketball: Four NBA players who could be league winners

We are in Fantasy Basketball Playoff position, and early congratulations to those who were able to weather loads of weight management and injury storms all year long to reach this moment – a chance to win the Fantasy Hoops Championship. There’s still a lot to be determined, but a few players have already proven to be important assets to fantasy managers during this playoff stretch.

And it certainly isn’t Isaiah Leavers (SMH).

Several overrated roster stars would easily have made this list, and the ascendant players would mikal bridge There are also warrants. But rather than focus on key figures, I’ll highlight several Other Players who can lead you to victory.

Before I get on with the list, I want to acknowledge that Tyus Jones would have been included, but in a surprising turn of events, ja morant Will be eligible to return to the Grizzlies on Monday after receiving a backdated eight-game suspension from the NBA.

When Morant’s comeback was in doubt, Jones had all the makings of a league winner. he’s been Averaged 17.4 points per night in 33.8 minutes with 3.8 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.2 threes, 1.8 steals and only 1.2 turnovers since becoming the Grizzlies starting point guard five games ago.

The news of Morant’s return will have an obvious impact on Jones’ playing time, but I wouldn’t rule him out in a 12+ team league just yet. He continues to be a terrific H2H fantasy player off the bench and will provide double-digit points for fantasy managers in the coming weeks and plenty of assists, steals and threes to match. For Morant managers, this is great news, as you can deploy him back into their lineup for the final weeks of the regular season.

With that said, there are four players with the potential to win the league for the rest of the season:

The Jazz have a demanding schedule going into Week 21, but if THT hits your waver strings, he’s a player you’ll definitely want to roster for Weeks 22 and 23. opening role with Colin Sexton (hamstrings) and jordan clarkson (finger) Out of the lineup. The knock against Horton—turnovers are just that, turnovers.

However, if you’re punting turnover, he was a top 50 player last week, averaging 23.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 8.7 assists, 1.7 threes and 0.7 steals with a 49/39/91 shooting split. If you’re not into punting turnovers, then he’s probably not the guy for you because he’s given away the ball about four times per game last week (and since the All-Star break).

Still, he’ll continue to see plenty of minutes, and his usage is up to 28.6% in March — a good sign that he’ll have plenty of opportunities to pile up the stats when fantasy managers need him most.

I know it’s been a long time since he’s been under 50% of rosters, but this rookie has been one of the best fantasy players since the All-Star break. Have a look at the sharing:

Pre-All-Star: 12.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 0.9 threes and 1.2 steals with 1.6 turnovers

Shooting split: 51/32/75

Post All-Star: 21.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 1.4 threes, 2.0 steals with 1.6 turnovers

Shooting split: 59/47/84

for a rookie to improve his efficiency More Quantity is special. He ranks 83rd in per-game value this season, but he’s been a top-15 player over the past month.

Together Shai Gilgeous-Alexander A candidate to be rested (or shut down, let’s be honest), J-Dub should flourish for fantasy managers vying for fantasy basketball championships.

It’s hard to believe that Kyle Anderson was only 48% rostered in Week 19, but considering his recent play those in shallower leagues made a move at the right time. He’s had triple-doubles in his last two contests, but he’s been an underrated fantasy asset all season long. He has been ranked in the top 60 since December 1 and refuses to downshift to “Slo-Mo”.

The trade deadline was the best thing for Anderson, as he saw increases in his PPG (+2.9), REB/G (+2.6), AST/G (+2.4), FG percentage (+8.5%) and 3PT % Is. (+7.4%). He’s moved up to No. 32 in value per game over the last seven days, and the production will continue with Anderson Karl-Anthony Towns Still, reportedly a week away from returning to court,

The Timberwolves play three games in Week 22 (Mon/Wed/Sun), and despite a three-day lull between games on Wednesday and Sunday, I’d pick Anderson because he’ll be key to championship week. Of course, you have to win to get there, but his versatility cannot be understated for the amount of rebounds, assists, steals and blocks he piles up in fantasy. The Timberwolves are a game out of the 6th seed in the West, so they will need him to advance in the playoffs.

Spurs are beyond despair, adopting a different rest strategy at the end of the season. Still, Zach Collins is in a prime position to punch in some fantasy championship fantasy ticket news. Charles Bassey (knee) Sustained a potentially season-ending injury on Tuesday night, While not a spur to load management, Collins played 35 straight games before missing a game on March 5, the second night of back-to-back sets. He also won’t be able to play in tonight’s contest, but fortunately, Spurs only have one back-to-back save this season.

The Spurs play four games in Week 22 and three in Week 23, and despite some tough matchups, Collins has been in stellar form in the latter half of the season. Since the trade deadline (when I advocated picking Collins when he was 30% rostered), he averaged 15.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.7 threes, 1.2 steals and a 0.8 with a 49/44/83 shooting split. Block averaged. Those numbers dropped him out of the top 40 in fantasy in Spain. And most recently, he ranks 26th in per-game value over the last 14 days.

Collins’ offensive prowess is perfect for fantasy as he can spread the floor and provide assists as a big man. He has doubling ability every night in his current role, and he has been one of the best value pickups since February. I didn’t anticipate Collins to be a potential league winner, but here we are!
