Fantasy Basketball: Add TJ Warren

Suns TJ Warren

I told you a week ago that Domantas Sabonis should be picked up. Clearly some have listened as his ownership has gone up 39.3%. He has been a beast. He has had a double-double in five of the last six games. He is still available in 35.7% of ESPN leagues. You should add him if you can.

Larry Nance broke his thumb Thursday night against the Portland Trail Blazers. If Julius Randle or Kyle Kuzma are available in your league, they should be added. Both have played well and should see a minutes boost until Nance can return.

Who else can you target this week that are much less owned? Let’s take a look.

T.J. Warren | F | Phoenix Suns
55.7% Owned on ESPN

TJ Warren is starting to produce for fantasy hoops owners including going off for 40 points and 10 rebounds. He has scored 20 plus points in three of the last four games. He averaged 27.1 minutes in October. If he sees minutes north of 30 like he did against the Wizards, the production should be there. Add Warren if you need forward help.

Jeremy Lamb | G | Charlotte Hornets
47.1% Owned on ESPN

Jeremy Lamb seems to be one of the biggest benefactors of Nic Batum injury. He is averaging 17 points and 5 rebounds on 30 minutes per game. He is averaging two threes made per game over the past six games. He is racking up the fantasy points and producing for his owners.

Tyreke Evans

Tyreke Evans | G/F | Memphis Grizzlies
43.2% Owned on ESPN

Tyreke Evans is good? As of now, the answer seems to be yes. The Grizzlies are lacking scoring like no other especially when Marc Gasol and Mike Conley aren’t going off. Evans is becoming a legit third option scoring double figures in every game but one. He has 30 minutes in back to back games. Evans is taking and making threes, getting to the line and bringing down rebounds.

Taurean Prince | F | Atlanta Hawks
25.6% Owned on ESPN

If you are in a deeper leagues and need forward help Taurean Prince could fill your void. He has scored in four of his last five and six of eight. He has 30 plus minutes in three of his last four games including a 37 and 38 minutes. He can contribute in multiple categories including rebounds and steals. He has 2 plus steals in each of the last 5 games.

T.J. McConnell | G | Philadelphia 76ers
11.8% Owned on ESPN

Number one pick Markelle Fultz is in the middle of a bizarre scenario where he tried to change his shot, a shot that is seemingly broke and causes a hitch while at the free throw line. He is also dealing with an injury, potentially had fluid drained (depending on who you belive) and is missing time. This sets up T.J. McConnell for a golden opportunity to help fantasy owners. Keep in mind Ben Simmons will act as the team’s primary ball handler most of the time. Think Grant Hill, Scottie Pippen, or LeBron James. That said McConnell contributes in points, rebounds, and assists. He has also chipped in a steal in 5 straight games. Until the Fultz craziness is fixed, McConnell is a must add.
