Fantasy Basketball Sleepers

Sports-and-Recreation The 2010-2011 NBA season is here – Whether youre looking to enhance a particular stat and be dominant in that category, or looking to shore up a weakness; here are some fantasy basketball sleeper picks for you to help .pliment your teams foundation. Here are 10 sleepers in no particular order that you can take a flyer on in all formats 1. Dorell Wright SG/SF (GSW) – Wright has shown flashes of fantasy value while stuck in the Miami Heat doghouse. Former coach Pat Riley was never big on rookies, limiting Wrights ability to show off his full potential. Now in position to start on a fantasy-friendly Warriors team, Wright should post around 14 pts, 5 reb, 2 ast, 1.5 stl, 1 three, almost 1 blk with respectable shooting %s. 2. Ty Lawson PG (DEN) – The North Carolina PG has impressed in his rookie campaign. With starting PG Billups .ing off a long summer and aging fast, Lawson could see 30+ minutes a night split between both guard positions. Lawson averaged 17 pts/6 ast/3 reb with a steal and almost a 3-pointer during eight starts last year. 3. JaVale McGee C (WAS) – A 3rd year player positioned to start in an all-of-the-sudden exciting Wizards squad with ROY candidate John Wall, McGee should provide an excellent source of blocks and boards late in the draft. Look for McGee to finish in the top 5 in blocks and average around 8 boards per game. 4. Francisco Garcia SG/SF (SAC) – As a starter, Garcia has averaged 13.7 pts, 4.3 reb, 2.6 ast, 1.5 stl and 1.3 threes over his career. Aside from ROY Tyreke Evans & rookie DeMarcus Cousins, there really isnt too much talent on the Sacramento roster. Look for Garcia to start and post career numbers, barring injury. 5. Anderson Varejao PF/C (CLE) – Hes not going to impress on the offensive end, but what he lacks in that department he makes up for with hustle. Now without a clear star on the Cavs, look for them to try various ways to pull out wins. Varejao should be a steady play all season and can be .pared to Louis Scolas breakout campaign with the Rockets in 09/10. Only difference will be less points, more steals & blocks. 6. Ramon Sessions PG (CLE) – Sessions will play for his 3rd team in his 4 year career. He definitely has the ability to put up PG-2 worthy stats if he is the starter. Sessions has put up his best numbers as a pro on bad teams making the best of the situation (14 pts/8 ast/1.5 stl as a starter). Look for him to take advantage and .pete for the starting job alongside Mo Williams. 7. Paul George SG/SF (IND) – Drafted as a possible franchise player to replace Danny Granger, this underrated wing player out of Fresno State will get every opportunity to produce immediately. Low shooting %s and high turnovers will be a downside, as with most rookies. If/when the injury riddled Granger goes down, look for George to show off his true NBA potential being the man in the starting lineup. He still may eventually start at the SG, but will begin .ing off the bench. 8. Hakim Warrick PF (PHO) – Has been pretty much a disappointment thus far in his career. However, there may be light at the end of the tunnel here. Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns have made the best out of their roster in previous seasons. Just look at former boarder line busts turned fantasy studs: Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw, and most recently Channing Frye. This will be Warricks last shot at being given 20+ minutes per night. 9. Jordan Crawford SG (ATL) – Another rookie that isnt a lottery pick with a chance to make an immediate impact. As the Hawks just signed their soul away for the next 6 years (Joe Johnson), they will be desperately needing talent that is currently on their roster (since they can no longer afford any big trades/free agents). The other Hawks Crawford (Jamal) is disgruntled about his contract situation. If this progresses into a standoff, look for the rookie to step into a perfect situation. 10. Ronnie Brewer SG (CHI) – Positioned to start and share the backcourt with All-Star Derrick Rose, Brewer should put up similar stats when he was starting in Utah alongside Deron Williams. Brewer is an excellent late-round source of steals. He has never been a 3-point threat, so well see if he can hang onto his starting gig. My guess is yes strictly because of his defensive skills.
