Fantasy Basketball Sleepers for Tuesday December 17, 2013
- Updated: December 16, 2013
If you are interested on my syndicated talk show The Phil Naessens Show we previewed all five of Tuesday’s NBA games and a whole bunch more NBA talk including LeBron James statements that there aren’t any rivalries any longer in the NBA. You can listen below;
It’s slim pickings tonight but I’ll do my best to give you five Fantasy Basketball sleeper picks (less than 55% owned) for Tuesday December 17, 2013.
Here we go!
Reggie Jackson PG: They call Jackson Mr. October but he’s been pretty darn good in November and December as well. Hard to believe he’s owned in just 49% of ESPN Leagues and in just 37% of Yahoo Leagues. Pick him up tonight you won’t be sorry. (Stats)
Jeremy Lamb SG: The Thunder are playing in the Mile High City and with starting shooting guard Thaba Sefalosha being day to day Lamb will see some minutes and hopefully launch, and make, a couple of treys for you. He’s currently owned in a whopping 1.4% of ESPN leagues and in 7% of Yahoo leagues so this is a go with your gut choice if ever there was one. (Stats)
Nick Young SF: Young is starting to score for the Lakers like folks thought he would. This is a good thing. The Lakers are on the second game of a back to back so Kobe Bryant’s minutes will be limited which a good thing is also. An even better thing is that he’s only owned in 51% of ESPN leagues and 29% of Yahoo leagues. (Stats)
Jon Leuer PF: Leuer has made the most of every opportunity and with Gasol out again tonight and Ed Davis really not doing much Leuer is once again going to get the minutes and if the last few games are any indication you will be a happy owner if you grab him tonight. He’s currently owned in 12.9% of ESPN leagues and in 21% of Yahoo leagues. (Stats)
Timofey Mozgov C: I told you at the beginning that tonight was pretty slim pickings but Mozgov might get some minutes tonight against the Thunder. If he does he’ll contribute and being as though he’s only owned in 1.8% of ESPN leagues and 6% of Yahoo leagues makes him another go with your gut choice. (Stats)
Good luck tonight Fantasy Owners!
