Five Most Added Players: December 7-13

  1. Kyle Lowry (10.5 points, 1.1 three-pointers, 6.8 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 1.8 steals): Lowry has played very well in place of the injured Aaron Brooks, providing fantasy owners with great all-around stats. Kyle's value isn't going to last much longer, though, as Brooks is expected to return in the next few games. Milk Lowry's production while you can, but be ready to drop him in standard leagues once he returns to the bench and his playing time dries up.
  2. Jodie Meeks (9.9 points, 1.9 three-pointers, 82.8% FT%): Fantasy owners jumped all over Meeks after he moved into the starting line up and scored a career-high 26 points. In five games as a starter, he's averaging 15.6 points and a whopping 3.4 three-pointers. Those who choose to add Meeks need to remember he'll give you little else in other categories, so he's more of an option for deep formats. He's available in just over 80% of leagues.
  3. Wesley Matthews (14.8 points, 1.6 three-pointers, 1.2 steals): Matthews topped this list last week and remains a must own in all formats. His numbers as a starter are very impressive: 20.3 points, 2.4 three-pointers, 1.9 steals, and 3.5 rebounds. If you haven't picked him up yet, it may be too late. Matthews is almost universally owned.
  4. Josh McRoberts (6.9 points, 6 rebounds, 1.2 blocks): McRoberts has secured the starting power forward spot in Indiana and fantasy owners are starting to see he's a great addition to any fantasy squad. His numbers are not overwhelming, but he contributes in every single category, even a three-pointer here and there. His percentages leave a little to be desired, but McRoberts currently ranks #102 in our player ratings and should be on your roster. He's owned in just 20% of leagues, so go grab him while you can.
  5. George Hill (12 points, 1 three-pointer, 1.2 steals, 46.9% FG%, 86.9 FT%): Hill has been on a scoring tear of late, averaging 17.2 points in his last five. Much like Meeks, Hill's main contribution is in scoring, though he does help a bit in steals and his field goal percentage is strong for a guard. Hill's production can be a little inconsistent because the Spurs are so deep. Still, he's doing enough to be worthy of a roster spot in standard formats. Hill remains unowned in about 50% of leagues.
