Hot Streaks: March 19

Five players that have been playing well over the last couple of weeks. Stats listed below are from the last 15 days.

  1. Toney Douglas (16.2 points, 3.4 three-pointers, 6.3 assists, 50% FG%, 84.6% FT%): Douglas emerged as a great fantasy option while Chauncey Billups was sidelined recently, but he's continued to play well and see heavy minutes even as he's been moved back to a reserve role. Toney is a great scorer, but he's also helping fantasy owners in every category besides blocks. Don't let him go unowned in your league as he looks to be a great pick up as the season winds down.
  2. C.J. Miles (19.1 points, 2.1 three-pointers, 4.4 rebounds, 1 steal, 91.3% FT%): C.J. is presently on an eight-game double-digit scoring streak that was capped off by Wednesday's 40-point outburst. Miles was recently moved into the starting line up as his overall production has improved. Miles is looking like a solid pick up as the Jazz battle it out for a playoff spot.
  3. Jodie Meeks (14 points, 2.7 three-pointers, 4.2 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 92.3% FT%): Like Miles, Meeks has emerged of late as a great fantasy producer to have as you make a run toward a championship. He's always been a great scorer, but he's become a valuable fantasy addition because of the growth in his production in other categories. He's a must own while he plays heavy minutes and contributes across a few categories.
  4. Francisco Garcia (12.1 points, 1.8 three-pointers, 1.4 steals, 93.8% FT%): As his minutes have started to rise since returning from a calf injury, Garcia has given fantasy owners some great all-around stat lines. Francisco is a versatile player that can put up numbers in every single category. Our only concern with him is that he's an injury risk, but he's a must own now that he's healthy, starting, and playing heavy minutes.
  5. Luke Ridnour (10.8 points, 5.8 assists, 1.9 steals, 100% FT%): Ridnour has quietly had a strong season and he's been one of the best draft values since he was either drafted very late or not at all. He continues to do what he's done all season: put up some solid assist numbers while giving you a little something across nearly every category. Ridnour currently sits within the top 75 of our player ratings and is clearly a must own in all formats.
