Think you have a player that you should sell high on? Alternatively looking for a player you might be able to pick up on the cheap? Here are some options according to The Fantasy Dudes:
Serge Ibaka, PF, Oklahoma City Thunder: Had a rather slow start to the season, but is now starting to put things together. Rebounds are on the up, and he has averaged 3.3 blocks a game over his past 7.
Amar'e Stoudemire, PF, New York Knicks: Would the real Amar'e please stand up! He made one of the all-nba teams last season, but based on his recent play (14.3 pts, 7.1 rebs, 0.4 blks over past 7 games), he wouldn't be worthy of an all-star position. With Baron Davis returning to the court shortly, and given the Knicks horrid run, expect more plays to come his way. Look to take advantage of a frustrated owner.
Lamar Odom, PF, Dallas Mavericks: The 6th man of the year has struggled to find his feet in Dallas, and you can't really blame him. However, with Dirk shelved for a week or two, Lamar has been promoted to the starting lineup. Expect his stats to improve.
Chauncey Billups, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers: .321 fg, .765 ft... that is not Billups. That will improve, as will is current points production of 14 ppg over his past 4 games,
Kobe Bryant, SG, Los Angeles Lakers: Ok, i know what you're thinking... seriously, Kobe? The guy is averaging over 30 ppg! Actually, over his past 8 games, KB24 has averaged 34.1 pts, 5.5 rebs, 5.0 assts and 1.9 stls... pretty good! I don't see those stats going up, and with injury concerns, and a condensed season, why not try and see who you can get for him? Perhaps a Joe Johnson or Kevin Martin plus another to improve the deal. Who knows, someone might give up a Kevin Love, Durant, LeBron or Rose for him.
Carlos Boozer, PF, Chicago Bulls: The Bulls are stacked, and can even win without D-Rose around. Boozer has impressed lately to the tune of 15.6 pts, 8.7 rebs and 1.3 stls over his past 9 games (on terrific shooting). How long can his health keep up? Why wait around? Sell him now...
Brandon Jennings, PG, Milwaukee Bucks: Not a huge fan of the Bucks from a fantasy perspective this season, however Jennings has been one of the bright spots. He has had a strong past couple of weeks, but I can see inconsistencies ahead, including a return to poor shooting %'s and high turnovers. 4 solid games in a row suggests now is as good a time as any to sell.
Al Harrington, PF, Denver Nuggets: 20.3 pts, 7.7 rebs, 3.7 threes over past 4 games... no way is that sustainable. SELL!!!
