PHONIEX duo Tyler Ulis and Marquese Chriss are 21 and 19 years old respectively. If the last week or two is anything to go by though they are playing years above their experience level. They are the two most popular adds in the fantasy world this week after Ulis (12 PPG and 9.7 APG) and Chriss (21 PPG and 8.3 RPG) starred in the Suns three games. If either of them are available stash them now without a second though.
SPEAKING of popular pick ups, Richaun Holmes has emerged as a potential late add with Jahlil Okafor’s inconsistencies and injury issues. Scheduled to come off the bench in their next game, the ceiling for Holmes is capped if Okafor suits up, but any game he doesn’t Holmes has 20/10 potential.

STEPH Curry looked his dual MVP winning dominant self dropping 16 threes in his three games this week. Most important for the Dubs they went 3-0 with the Spurs closing in on the one seed. With KD still sidelined it seems like Curry could go on a tear to end the season should he continue to play every game. His brother however is another story. His yo-yo like output has scared off a lot of owners, leading to him being dropped in by 12.8% of owners. He did however score 23 points in last nights W over the Clippers. Watch this space.
INJURY NEWS – IT’S a bummer for both Heat fans and Waiters owners that he seems to be out for a period of time. After leading Miami close to a playoff berth Waiters was one of the form players of the comp, but a wrist injury has sidelined the scoring dynamo. A four game absence between appearances saw Wilson Chandler make his return for Denver and should start for them with Gallinari still injured. It is worth mentioning though that Faried is back in the line-up and should steal some minutes. Finally Frank Kaminsky’s weird injury issues have been resolved with the big man taking the floor again and contributing plenty of points and rebounds.
