Hot Streaks: March 26

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

  1. Carlos Delfino (15.5 points, 3.1 three-pointers, 4.1 rebounds, 2.1 steals, 50.6% FG%): Delfino had a great three-game stretch this past week where he averaged 28.7 points. In addition to his scoring ability, Carlos can contribute three-pointers, rebounds, and steals. Delfino is starting and playing heavy minutes, making him someone who should be on all fantasy rosters down the stretch.
  2. Jodie Meeks (14.6 points, 3.3 three-pointers, 1.3 steals, 51.9% FG%, 91.7% FT%): Meeks' hot shooting has continued for another week as he keeps draining the long ball. Teams in need of a boost in scoring, three-pointers, and steals should give Meeks a strong look. Meeks is playing over 35 minutes a night as Evan Turner has become a non-factor in Philadelphia's rotation.
  3. Nicolas Batum (15.1 points, 1.8 three-pointers, 4.9 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 88.2% FT%): Batum has really stepped up his game of late, scoring in double figures in five straight outings, including a double-double. If Batum is in your free agent pool, he makes for a strong pick up as he's one of the few players out there that can help in every single category.
  4. Lou Williams (17.4 points, 1.8 three-pointers, 1 steals, 82.5% FT%): Over the last couple of weeks, Williams is back to doing what he does best: scoring in bunches. Williams is more of a deep league play, though, because he averages only averages just under 25 minutes a contest and he's one of the streakiest players in the NBA. Still, teams in standard formats who need a big time scorer should take a chance on Lou while he's hot.
  5. Tony Allen (11.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.6 steals, 49.2% FG%, 84.2% FT%): Allen has really started to get comfortable in his starting role and his play has shown it. Allen can give fantasy squads a boost in every category besides three-pointers. He's logging big minutes and his role is secure since Rudy Gay won't be returning this season. Team managers should strongly consider adding Tony for the last few weeks of the season.
