Hot Streaks: January 16-29

  1. Arron Afflalo (16 points, 2.1 three-pointers, 54.1% FG%, 90.5% FT%): Afflalo is having a career year, but his numbers just keep getting better as the season progresses. Arron has put together his best stretch of play over the last two weeks. He's playing extremely well offensively, yet still providing across-the-board production in virtually every category. He's still unowned in just more than 10% of leagues, so snatch him up if you can.
  2. Ryan Anderson (16 points, 3.4 three-pointers, 6.3 rebounds, 1 block, 88.2% FT%): Anderson has continued to play very well, although he had a sub-par game last night against Chicago. He's still hitting the long ball at a ridiculous rate while contributing in a few categories. At this point, he deserves to be owned in standard formats. Ryan was the most added player last week, but he's still unowned in about 20% of leagues.
  3. Amir Johnson (13.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, 64% FG%, 85.2% FT%): Like Afflalo, Johnson is having himself a career year. Amir, though, has been overlooked by many fantasy owners because most of his value is coming from his strong percentages. He'll be hard to ignore following last night's 24-point, 12-rebound night against Milwaukee. He's been a solid source of rebounds all season, while contributing a handful of blocks and steals as well. Amir is available in nearly 80% of leagues.
  4. Corey Maggette (18.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 51.9% FG%, 84.6% FT%): Maggette's been up and down all season, but he's putting together a nice stretch that was topped off by last night's 29-point, 11-rebound, 5-assist performance. But with Carlos Delfino's recent return, Chris Douglas-Roberts playing well, and John Salmons close to coming back from injury, it's unknown how long Maggette will see enough minutes to be a regular fantasy contributor. Maggette is worth a speculative pick up, but should be owned by any team's looking to boost their free throw percentages. Corey's unowned in about a third of leagues.
  5. Mike Dunleavy (13.3 points, 2.4 three-pointers, 50.7% FG%, 100% FT%): Dunleavy's on a nice stretch of five games in double figures, including last night's 30 points off of 6 three-pointers. He's also been a decent source of all-around production over the last two weeks. With Brandon Rush expected to miss the next 1-2 weeks with an ankle injury, Dunleavy is worth at least a short term pick up. He's a free agent in about 60% of leagues.
