Looking for some candidates to trade for while their value is low? Look no further because The Fantasy Dudes have put together a quick list of those players to target in your fantasy basketball leagues. We have included some high draft picks in the list just in case you have some managers with itchy feet:
Eric Gordon, G, New Orleans Hornets: Returning from injury, someone may decide to ship him. If they do, jump on it. Eric's stats will only be on their way up, and we like him to finish as one of the best at the SG position at the end of the season.
Dorell Wright, SG/SF, Golden State Warriors: Numbers down pretty much across the board from last season, in particular his shooting. Expect him to pick it up, especially with injury concerns with Steph Curry. A fantastic contributor in 3's and steals.
Deron Williams, PG, New Jersey Nets: He has requested that the Nets bring in reinforcements, and if they want to keep him, management will do just that. Dwight Howard anyone? If this happens, his value increases quite a lot... but if you wait, it may be too late. At present however, he is struggling with his shot and the turnovers, so you will have to put up with that in the short-term.
Russell Westbrook, PG, Oklahoma City Thunder: Seems like his relationship with Durant is impacting on his game. Shooting percentages down on last season, as are his assists. If the Thunder are to make a run this season (and we think they will), they need Westbrook to play much better... and we expect him too!
Rudy Gay, SF, Memphis Grizzlies: With the injury to Z-Bo, someone will have the step up. We see it being Rudy. His points production is down on his career average, however we see this increasing to the 20 ppg mark, especially as his finds his shot (FG % currently down).
Lamar Odom, SF/PF, Dallas Mavericks: We have received a few queries from our followers about what to do with Lamar. The answer is clear... keep him. If you can get him on the cheap from another manager, do it. The move to Dallas was very sudden, so of course it is going to take time to adjust. The 6th man of the year will come good, and we hope it is for your fantasy team.
Kris Humphries, PF, New Jersey Nets: From one Kardashian to another (well ex), Kris is the little brother in terms of statistics to Kevin Love... ok, a much smaller brother, but he is still averaging a double double this season in points and rebounds, and this is coming off a shortened and rather turbulent off-season.
DeAndre Jordan, C, Los Angeles Clippers: This guy is an absolute beast... if only he could stay on the court. Current rankings have him outside the top 100, particularly because of his poor FT shooting, however if you need/want blocks, make a trade!
Jodie Meeks, SG, Philadelphia 76ers: A great source of 3's and steals last season, Jodie's stats are also down across the board... don't expect this to continue. Buy low!
