I often say that even bad teams produce fantasy players. Someone has to score, rebound, assist, etc.

The Charlotte Bobcats are no exception.

Michael Jordan has put together one pathetic basketball team. but that hasn’t kept Gerald Henderson from being a viable fantasy option.

On the year, he’s averaging 14.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.3 blocks, 0.9 steals and 0.3 three-pointers per game. He's shooting 45.4 percent from the field, 27.6 percent from behind the arc and 68.8 percent from the charity stripe.

He is playing a career-high 33.2 minutes per game, and his numbers are up across the board.

After playing just two games in February because of a hamstring injury, he started March slow, failing to reach double-digit scoring in four of his first six games.

Currently, he is working on a four-game stretch in double-digits, averaging 15.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.3 blocks, 0.8 steals and 0.3 three pointers. 

On Saturday, he hit 11-of-14 shot for 24 points, his first 20-point game since January 21st. Does it mean that he’ll start scoring 15-plus points per game again? Not necessarily, but it is a good sign.

He appears healthy and is trending in the right direction.

Henderson is owned in half of Yahoo! and 35.7 percent of ESPN leagues. He is eligible at both shooting guard and small forward, so he gives you a little flexibility.

If you are looking for a boost in the scoring category, Henderson can help.
