Has your fantasy team hit with injuries? Players underperforming? Getting bored with your team? Look no further because here is a list of players you should be targeting off your waiver wires:
Vince Carter, SG/SF, Dallas Mavericks: The Mavericks have been hit with injuries, and Vince himself has only just returned... but returned in style indeed. How does 18 pts, 2.7 three's, 1.3 stls and excellent shooting over the past 3 games sound to you? Ride the hot hand. Owned in just 45% of standard leagues.
Drew Gooden, PF/C, Milwaukee Bucks: In case you haven't heard, Andrew Bogut is out for quite a white. The Bucks will likely get in some recruits, but Drew should see plenty of minutes in the meantime. Has averaged 18.3 pts and 7.5 rebs over past 4 games. Owned in 59% of standard leagues.
Chase Budinger, SF, Houston Rockets: For those owners that drafted him, they will likely be disappointed, and rightly so given he has a few DNPCD. However there has been movement off the bench over the past 3 games to the tune of 17.7 pts, 2.3 three's, 4.7 rebs and strong shooting percentages. Owned in 37% of standard leagues.
Landry Fields, SG/SF, New York Knicks: One of the forgotten men in the Knicks starting lineup as Shumpert has taken away some of the limelight. Landry has actually performed well lately, including a breakout 18 pt, 5 stl, 4 three game against the Pistons. He should continue to do well even when Baron returns. Owned in 45% of standard leagues.
Marcus Camby, C, Portland Trailblazers: How old is this guy? Health has always been an issue, but might as well run with him while he is still going. He won't help with much besides rebounds and blocks, however he is a strong asset. Averaged 13.7 rebs and 2 blks over his past 3 games. Owned in 58% of standard leagues.
James Johnson, SF/PF, Toronto Raptors: A key beneficiary from the Bargnani injury, Johnson has returned 1.5 stls, 2 blks, and 4.7 rebs for fantasy owners over the past 4 games. Owned in 42% of standard leagues.
Marvin Williams, SF, Atlanta Hawks: Yes, Joe Johnson and Josh Smith have stepped up since Horford went down, but so has Marvin. Over past 4 games he has averaged 13.5 pts, 3 threes, 5.7 rebs and 1 stl a game. Owned in 34% of standard leagues.
