Fantasy Corner

Who’s Hot

Victor Oladipo, PG/SG (ORL): In his second season at the NBA level and first season as a full-time starter, Oladipo has surpassed all expectations. The point guard has averaged 22.0 points over the past 15 days, while improving on season averages in many other key categories – assists, steals, and three-pointers.

Anthony Davis, PF/C (NOR): Davis, who just turned 22 last week, is the most dominant big man in the NBA. It’s unbelievable the production he has put up, which includes averaging 30.8 points, 5.0 blocks, 11.2 rebounds, and a 55.4 shooting percentage since returning from injury. He is even getting dangerously close to recording a quadruple-double.

Danilo Gallinari, SG/SF/PF (DEN): This three-point specialist has become a consistent part of this Denver offense, having averaged 2.7 made shots from beyond the arc per game over the past month. His presence on the boards is being felt, and Gallinari has scored in double digits in all but one game since Feb. 20.

Who’s Not

Trey Burke, PG (UTA): Burke hasn’t shot over 50% in a game in the month of March, which includes a pair of 0-8 and 1-11 shooting performances last week. His minutes have been dropping this month, and he really isn’t worth a spot on your roster without contributing in any key category.

Luol Deng, SF (MIA): You would think that Deng would have a bigger presence once Miami found out that Chris Bosh would be out for the season, but Deng has actually headed in the opposite direction. The 29-year old is averaging just 11.2 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 2.3 APG, and 0.5 STL this month, and his 37.7% from the field is 9.1% lower than his next lowest month.

Dirk Nowitzki, PF (DAL): Maybe age is catching up with this future hall-of-famer, as well as the extra rest that he is getting as the Mavericks head towards the playoffs. Since March 3  and before March 16, Nowitzki hasn’t topped 14 points, four rebounds, two assists, or one block and steal in a single game. He should be on your fantasy bench right now.
