Most Added: February 14

These are the five most added players over the last week. Stats listed below are from the last 7 days.

  1. DeJuan Blair (16.8 points, 12.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 1.3 blocks, 55.2% FG%): Blair is playing the best basketball of his young career. He's always been a great rebounder, but now his scoring and shot blocking are starting to pick up. We're not sure how long he can keep up the scoring, but any fantasy owners in need of rebounds and steals should definitely consider adding Blair.
  2. Brandon Roy (Has not played due to injury): With the recent news that Roy would be returning soon, he's been a hot add of late. We're not sure if he'll suit up before the All Star game, but he should get back on the court following the break at the very latest.
  3. Mo Williams (13.5 points, 11 assists, 1.5 steals, 100% FT%): Williams recently returned from a hip injury and he's had a couple of solid games. His shooting will need to improve, but he's already been a nice contributor in assists and steals. Look for Mo's production to ramp up over the next few games as he rounds into form. Any team needing help at point guard should be all over Williams, a player who can produce top 75 stats when he's on his game.
  4. Ramon Sessions (16.3 points, 9 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 2.5 steals, 56.8% FG%, 85.2% FT%): Sessions has been on fire of late, but the return of Mo Williams may cause his value to take a hit. Williams has already taken over starting point guard duties, reducing Sessions playing time to just 25.5 minutes per game. But because Daniel Gibson is once again struggling with a quad injury, Sessions may still see enough playing time to be worth a roster spot in standard formats. Ramon is a player we're monitoring over the next few games and we'd be quick to drop him if his production and/or playing time diminishes.
  5. Amir Johnson (7.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2 blocks, 83.3% FT%): Johnson appears on this list for the second consecutive week as fantasy owners are starting to realize how valuable an addition he is to fantasy squads. Johnson is a great source of rebounds, blocks, and percentages. We're not sure if he can maintain his value in the second half of the season, though, with the impending return of Reggie Evans and the emergence of rookie Ed Davis. Johnson is a player we like right now, but we'll also be watching him closely once Evans is ready to play. There may not be enough minutes to go around for any of the three to be reliable fantasy contributors.
