Fantasy Basketball: Redd Resurgence
Suddenly though, he's had a resurgence.
In his last five games he's looked like the Redd of old, reaching double-figures in each game while averaging 17.2 points per contest. He's been shooting at a solid clip, hitting 45.7 percent of his shots, including 41.7 percent from downtown.
Surprisingly, he made just 75.0 percent of his free throws, but that's not a terrible number nor does he get to the charity stripe enough for that to matter.
Unlike the old days, Redd isn't stuffing the stat sheet with decent numbers in the rebounds, assists and steal categories. He never confused anybody for Grant Hill in that regard, but he at least did enough to help fantasy teams.
In his past five games he's averaged just 1.4 rebounds, 0.6 assists, and 0.8 steals. He has, however, helped out in the three pointer category, averaging 2.0 per game during the hot stretch.
Redd is readily available in most leagues, with a 4.0 percent Yahoo! and 1.1 percent ESPN ownership.
He can still score in bunches and knock down the deep shots, so if you are looking for help in those two categories, Redd is a solid option down the stretch. He is particularly effective in daily leagues where you can plug him in for a night and dump him the next.
