Phil’s Fantasy Sports: Three Must Have Late Round Fantasy Basketball Sleepers

MSC - Phils Fantasy Sports

Phils Fantasy Sports

(Maximum Sports Channels – Phil Naessens) Good morning Fantasy Basketball owner. There are plenty of you looking for sleepers. I’m always on the lookout for them as well and today I’ll give you the must have sleepers you might want to consider taking a late round flyer on.

Kelly Olynyk Celtics: Olynyk was too erratic offensively last season but will get a second chance to make an impact on the Celtics.

Why he is a sleeper: The Celtics have a bit of a logjam at the power forward and center positions and acquiring Tyler Zeller in the offseason did not help Olynyk much. Sometimes the preseason is a good sign of to come and what we’ve seen this preseason is Olynyk averaging about 25 minutes per game and starting at center. If Olynyk can play anywhere close to where he finished the final three games of last season (25ppg, 9rpg, 3apg) then the sky is the limit for not only the Celtics but the Fantasy Owner lucky enough to have him.

Jordan Hill C/PF Lakers: I like Hill and obviously so do the Lakers as they re-signed him after last season to a two-year eighteen million dollar contract.

Why he is a sleeper: Last season Hill was a bright spot on an dark Lakers team. In 2013-2014 Hill averaged 20 minutes a game and his line of nine points and seven rebounds helped plenty deeper Fantasy League rosters. Head coach Byron Scott says Hill is going to start and since Chris Kaman and Pau Gasol have left the building Hill should get about twenty five minutes per game. If that is the case look for plenty of double doubles, blocks and a decent shooting percentage. Those numbers alone should make up for his horrible free throw shooting percentage and possibly help your Fantasy Team win a championship.

Jeremy Lin PG/SG Lakers: Is it time for Linsanity 3.0? If it is Lin could be the steal of the draft.

Why he is a sleeper: What Lin brings to the table is excitement and when he gets to doing his thing he can rack up some big-time Fantasy numbers in nearly every scoring category. The requirement is minutes and as long as Steve Nash remains healthy then Lin won’t get a ton of minutes killing his value. Luckily for Lin Steve Nash has spent a large amount of time over the last two seasons out of action with various ailments. Lin will get his 28-32 minutes per game and if you are the lucky owner who drafted Lin or snagged him off the waiver wire you will be happy you did.

Good luck Fantasy Basketball owner.

By John J. Raspanti (Photo © German Villasenor): The appeal of WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is obvious. He’s soft-spoken and kind. He never dismisses an opponent. When he wins a fight, he’s almost apologetic. But it seems what fight fans love most about Golovkin is that the man can flat-out punch. On Saturday night, at a sold-out StubHub Arena in Carson, CA, Golovkin made Marco Antonio Rubio his eighteenth consecutive knockout victim. The end came in the second round...
