Fantasy Bucket: The Harri B Show

By Elvis Gutierrez

Harrison Barnes is The Man for the Mavs. Keep him and never, ever trade him for someone like, say, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.


First Bottle: Malcolm Brogdon

Last year’s surprise Rookie of the Year has been on a roll to start the year and one of the most consistent Milwaukee Bucks players so far. Even after the arrival of Eric Bledsoe, he has been playing steady minutes in the 30s. This week, he was especially good with averages of 15 ppg, 4 rpg, 4 apg, 1.5 3s, .5 stls, and .5 blks. Don’t ever sleep on your team’s second rounder.


Second Bottle: Dennis Schröder

Dirk Nowitzki’s son has been unleashed this year for the Atlanta Hawks. The German PG balled out this week with averages of 26 ppg, 8 apg, 3.3 rpg, 1.7 3s, and 1.7 spg.


Third Bottle: Harrison Barnes

“Harri B,” as I call him, has been the closer for the Dallas Mavericks this season. He’s been a steady presence on the offensive end and this week was no different as he averaged 19 ppg, 7 rpg, 2.3 apg, 2 3s, and 1 spg. Sometimes, boring is good.


Fourth Bottle: Yogi Ferrell

We are at this point of the season where guys like Yogi are starting to creep up on some value. He was named a starter the past week and he responded with averages of 16 ppg, 7 rpg, 3 apg, and 3.3 3s per game. If he sticks in the starting lineup then you must get your Yogi on.


Fifth Bottle: Jarrett Jack

Tito Jarrett has been consistently holding off Frank Ntilikina for the starting PG spot for the New York Knicks. He has played admirably so far this year, especially this week where he had a 16/10/10 triple double against the Chicago Bulls. He averaged 15 ppg, 7 apg, 4 rpg, 1.5 spg, and 1 3pg for the week. It’s always good to get some pointers from your titos.
