Question of the Day: If Ash Ketchum played fantasy sports, would he have to be in enough leagues that he could own every player at least once?
-Amare Stoudemire is going to be out for likely 3 weeks. Carmelo Anthony played some of his best ball last season with Amare sidelined. Melo also boast a dream fantasy playoff schedule. His stock should be rising, while the oft-injured Amare should continue to fall.
-No one should be sleeping on Michael Beasley this season, unless it’s him (pictured right) because, well, everyone has to sleep at some point. Beasley offers unique versitility as well as huge scoring punch. If the Suns play as uptempo as they are looking, his FG% might look a lot better than it has the last few years. I expect him to lead the Suns in scoring and finish with 6-7 rebounds per game.

-A lot of people are still sleeping on Pistons rookie Andre Drummond, including the Pistons apparently. Drummond is putting up fantastic numbers in limited time this preseason and I can’t see a way he doesn’t beat out the perenially average Jason Maxiell for the starting spot this year. For what its worth, Maxiell only played 22 mpg in a starting role last year, meaning Drummond could still play significant minutes off the bench for the Pistons to start the year.
-Tobias Harris has a real shot to win the Bucks starting small forward job with Luc Richard Mbah A Moute still sidelined thus far in the preseason. Harris’ per minute stats from last season don’t stand out much, but his minutes were highly inconsistent. However, in the final two games last year he averaged 36.5mins/55%fg/15.5ppg/11rpg. Keep an eye on him.
-Carlos, don’t call me Swarlos, Delfino is averaging about 2 3pm per game so far in the preseason. We still have no idea how Coach Kevin McHale will use all of his swing assets, but Delfino has always been productive when healthy. He can be a 3-point specialist and more with upwards of 24 minutes per game.
Based on ADP, some undervalued players: Paul Millsap, Ilyasova, Manu, Ryan Anderson, Ray Allen, Glen Davis, G Vazquez #FantasyHoops
