JaVale McGee, C, Wizards: The leader of the Block Party has been on a swat tear of late, averaging 3.4 blocks over his last 7 games, and 3.2 for the season. With career high in rebounds (9.3) and a fantastic FG% (0.523), McGee is hugely undervalued as a fantasy player, and can win the blocks category for you practically on his own.

Mike Conley, PG, Grizzlies: With 7.3 assists per game, Conley ranks a respectable 10th in the assists category amongst players, but it's the steals he racks up (a whopping 2.5 per game) where he adds most value.

Kyrie Irving, PG, Cavaliers: Irving has been very good of late, averaging 20 points on 0.578 FG, 4.6 assists per game. With over a 3 per game added to all this, Irving is having a quietly good season, and figures to get better as the season progresses.


Stephen Jackson, SG/SF, Bucks: The only thing I hate worse than S-Jax's attitude is his FG% (0.367) and TO's (3.2). Jackson's scoring, his once most valuable asset, is down significantly from a couple of years ago, and his across the boards stats are nothing special. His name still carries trade weight, so get what you can for him now.


Dirk Nowitzki, PG/C, Mavericks: People - this is not the same Dirk as yesteryear. Scoring (6 points), rebounds (1.2) and FG% (0.67) all down from last season, and I don't think he can get back to that previous level. If you can get 95 cents on the dollar for him, why not? You'd be surprised what other owners are willing to give up for the big German.
