Most Added: March 14

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

  1. Tyler Hansbrough (24 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2 steals, 59% FG%): Hansbrough has taken his game to another level since being moved back into Indiana's starting five. He's scored in double digits in 12 of his last 14 games. Additionally, he's scored 20+ points in four straight games, capping the week off with a career-high 29 points. Tyler is a must add in all formats.
  2. James Harden (16.3 points, 2 three-pointers, 2.3 steals, 52.4% FG%, 92.9% FT%): For the second week in a row we find Harden on this list as he continues to play well. He's been a fixture in the top 100 of our player ratings all season, but since the Thunder shipped Jeff Green to Boston Harden's become an even more integral part of the team. He's a must add in the few leagues where he remains unclaimed.
  3. Ty Lawson (17.5 points, 2.5 three-pointers, 11 assists, 4 steals, 58.3% FG%): Ty put up back-to-back double-doubles this week and is making a case for being a must add. He's starting, playing over 30 minutes a night, and contributing across a number of categories. Fantasy owners in need of an upgrade at point guard should give Lawson a strong look.
  4. Kris Humphries (15 points, 17.5 rebounds, 2 blocks, 86.7% FG%): Humphries is on a six-game double-double streak, catching the attention of many team managers again this week. He's been a great source of rebounds all season, but no one expected the scoring output we've seen since taking back starting power forward duties following the Deron Williams trade. Humphries is only available in a handful of leagues, but he's clearly a must have for those needing help in the rebounding department.
  5. Toney Douglas (14.8 points, 3 three-pointers, 6.8 assists, 87.5% FT%): Fantasy owners jumped on the Douglas bandwagon as he played nearly 40 minutes a night while Chauncey Billups was sidelined. But now that Billups is back in the line up, Toney will return to his familiar reserve role. While he should play big minutes off the bench, we highly doubt he'll be productive enough to be worth keep down the stretch in standard formats.
