Shawn Marion Flourishing as a Starter

Dallas Mavericks forward Shawn Marion has taken his game to the next level after being moved into the starting five. As a starter, Marion is averaging 18.3 points and 6.3 rebounds while shooting a scorching 63.5% from the field in 31 minutes per game.

The Breakdown
Marion is relishing his new role as a starter, though his improved scoring could be partially due to Dirk Nowitzki sitting out the last few games with an injury. Marion is becoming a must own and is still available in about a quarter of leagues. Those who pick him up will want to make sure he continues to produce when Dirk is back in the line up.
