Welcome to another fantasy blast which sees us hit week 21 in the busy schedule. As we are all hitting our strides by now, some are rising above the rest! I hope that’s you, because it certainly isn’t me in the hotly contested USSDU Beginner’s League. All the best for the final few weeks of the schedule, and for now, let’s get straight to the stats!

LaMarcus Aldridge (POR): 25.3ppg, 12.5rpg, 1.3bpg.
Tim Duncan (SAS): 22ppg, 14.5rpg, 5.5apg, 3bpg, 50%FG.

Pick Me Ups
Martell Webster (WAS): A solid addition to any deep league team as he has come a long way with the Wizards, even taking the starting spot from Trevor Ariza. Webster is going for 12 points a contest over the past week and is a great little quick pick me up when the Wizards play a lower ranked side.
Nate Robinson (CHI): All season Kirk Hinrich has been invisible. He comes back from injury and then injures something else. This means that Robinson has basically been given an entire season to start at the point with both Hinrich and Rose out of the picture. This week he’s averaged 17 points and 7 assists; who wouldn’t take that?
Reggie Evans (BKN): If you need rebounds, this guy is your man. If you’re a team that is struggling in the rebounding category Reggie Evans is a must! He pulls down rebounds at ease, mostly due to the fact that Brook Lopez is lazy on boxing out which makes Evans work even harder at grabbing the boards. This week he’s averaged 7.8 points and 17.8 rebounds.
Gerald Henderson (CHA): This guy has game. You really really have to pick Hendo up if he’s available in your league. He’s averaged 21 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists a game this week. It doesn’t matter if he plays for Charlotte; he’s still a damn good fantasy player.
Maurice Harkless (ORL): With Vucevic out, I’m sure many fantasy owners went and picked Harkless up. If you didn’t you’re not winning. Harkless has blossomed all throughout this season and to be honest if you don’t pick him up during this season, you better make sure you’re watching next year’s fantasy draft board to select him. Over the past week he’s averaged 17.3 points and 8 rebounds plus 3.3 steals if you don’t mind.
