John Wall This Bradley Beal injury (seriously does anyone else get sick of reading or writing that sentence?) could be a blessing in disguise for John Wall, from a fantasy standpoint at least. An uptick in usage has vaulted his ranking (per Basketball-Monster) from where it was just two weeks
Zach LaVine (Age = 20yrs) He doesn’t just do highlight reel dunks, the T-Wolves sophomore guard can actually play too. Often over-looked because of blooming fantasy beast Karl-Anthony Towns as well as the expanding game of Andrew Wiggins, LaVine has settled in as the Wolves’ first guard off the bench

Nicolas Batum There are very few players in basketball capable of putting up the variety of stats this fantasy friendly Frenchman frequently produces.
