NBA: Five Fantasy Sleepers for the 2010 Season
It may be too early for fantasy basketball, but I'm too excited for it to start.
So, here are five players to watch going into next season for fantasy basketball:
1. Jrue Holiday
2. Andray Blatche
3. David West
4. Anthony Morrow
5. Hakim Warrick
5. Brendan Haywood
Brendan Haywood is a great rebounder and shot blocker. He averaged 7.4 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game. Haywood is a great guy to get in the later rounds.
4. Samuel Dalembert
Dalembert will be joining a team in the Kings where he will be one of the only sources for rebounds and blocked shots. His minutes are expected to be up, so expect a fine increase in his stats.
3. Nicolas Batum
Batum will be seeing an increase in minutes with the departure of Martell Webster.
Batum is a terrific three-point shooter, shooting .409 from three-point territory. He is also a great shot blocker despite being a small forward.
He is a star in the making.
2. Blake Griffin
Everybody is talking about John Wall as the big rookie, but Blake Griffin is still a rookie and expected to have a fine season.
Expect Griffin's minutes to be high because of the Clippers' lack of depth.
1. Greg Oden
If Oden can stay healthy, he will be a great late round pick up.
He won't have the pressure of not getting into foul trouble or being the only defensive presence because they have Camby and Przybilla also coming off the bench.
