Top 100 Players That Are Under 50% Owned

Here are a few players sitting in the top 100 of FBB's player ratings that could very likely be free agents in your league:

75. Grant Hill
(14.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 52.5% FG%): The veteran small forward has been fairly consistent so far this season. He hasn't had many huge games, but he's a good source of points, rebounds, and percentages with the ability to contribute steals and blocks on occasion.

80. Landry Fields (10.5 points, 6.7 rebounds, 55.9% FG%): We asked why you hadn't picked up Landry Fields, but few listened. Fields has actually moved up in our player ratings since then. He's a great source of rebounds for his position and he won't hurt you in any category. It's a crime that he's still available in over 80% of leagues.

85. Kris Humphries (7.7 points, 8 rebounds, 63.3% FG%): Humphries continues to play well in the absence of Troy Murphy. Murphy, though, is expected to return in the near future, so it may not be worth picking up Humphries now as there's likely to be a battle for minutes between New Jersey's three power forwards that may hurt all of their fantasy values.

86. Matt Barnes (9.4 points, 1.2 three-pointers, 5.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists): While he's only playing about 21 minutes a night, Barnes is putting up viable fantasy lines on a regular basis. Like Hill and Fields, Barnes is another one of those players that doesn't wow you in any category, but instead gives you steady across-the-board production. He's still out there in over 95% of leagues.

90. Amir Johnson (8.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.1 blocks 58.8% FG%, 90.7% FT%): It's easy to see why fantasy owners have overlooked Johnson, who's playing just under 20 minutes a night. Still, he's ranked higher than starting power forward Reggie Evans (#93) because of his better all-around game. Much of Johnson's value is coming from his great percentages. His free throw shooting, though, is well-above his career mark and doesn't appear to be sustainable for the length of the season. Much like Humphries, there may not be enough minutes to go around in Toronto when rookie Ed Davis is ready to play in the next few games.
