By Elvis GutierrezIn this week’s Fantasy Bucket, we celebrate the New Year’s block party hosted by Magic big man Bismack Biyombo.
First Bottle: Bismack Biyombo
Bismack, who owns one of the coolest names in the league, has been having a block party lately. He’s been averaging 8 pts, 12 rebs, and 3.3 blks in the past three games, taking advantage of extra playing time in the absence of Nikola Vucevic, who’s down with an injury.
Second Bottle: TJ McConnell
McConnell who looks more like a golf instructor for kids than an NBA player has made his way into our bucket. He’s been sneaky good lately racking up the dimes. He’s averaging 10 pts, 5 apg, 4 rpg, and 2.3 spg on great %s. He’s a pretty good plug and play if you have injured PGs right now like Jeff Teague.
Third Bottle: Terry Rozier
Danny Ainge’s favorite son has made his way into our Fantasy Bucket. He’s been playing well this season, but you can’t really see it in the numbers. But this week, he was really good with averages of 14.5 ppg, 6 rpg, 2.5 apg, 2.8 3s, and 1.3 spg, that’s good for Top 20 in the past seven days.
Fourth Bottle: Taurean Prince
He’s been having a week fit for a… prince (sorry). He’s been posting eye-popping numbers lately with averages of 18 ppg, 10 rpg, 2 apg, 3.3 3s, and 1.3 bpg. Good stuff.
Fifth Bottle: Dario Saric
Nobody knows why he’s nicknamed “The Homie,” but The Homie Dario has been carrying fantasy teams this week. He has averages of 20 ppg, 6 rpg, 4 apg, 3 3s, and 1.3 spg for the week and looks like a major breakout player this year.
