By Elvis GutierrezIn this week’s Fantasy Bucket, we list five names who have no business being on anybody’s fantasy team. But on the off chance that they are, then cheers to you, you fantasy beast!
First Bottle: Rajon Rondo
Somebody has been drinking some vino lately, and it’s not Rondo (hint: it’s me) because what he has been doing is putting up some numbers lately, including an 18-assist game against Philly. He was rested for a game last week, but it didn’t matter because he put up averages of 11 ppg, 12 apg, 4 rpg, and 2.3 spg.
Second Bottle: Zach Randolph
Another guy who you would think is sipping on grandpa juice lately is Zach Randolph. He had a monster throwback game against the Pelicans with 35 pts, 13 rebs, and 5 3s on his way to Top 12 value for the week. These old school vets still have plenty left on the tank.
Third Bottle: Tyler Johnson
After an inconsistent start to the season, Tyler Johnson has still been inconsistent. But this week, he has been really good—as in Top 20 numbers good. He averaged 22 ppg, 4 rpg, and 3.5 3s for the week, but just watch out for the next head-scratcher game.
Fourth Bottle: Caris LeVert
Caris doesn’t sound anything like an NBA player’s name, but here he is and he was really good this week with averages of 16 ppg, 7 rpg, 2 spg, and 1 bpg. Hopefully, he can still be a fantasy contributor when the Nets start to get healthy.
Fifth Bottle: Andre Roberson
Everybody probably thinks I’m drunk by now by putting Roberson on this list, but if you’re punting points, he has some great value with his defensive stats. He averaged 4 ppg, 7 rpg, 2 spg, and 2.3bpg for the week. If those numbers don’t work for you, then they don’t.
