BEAST DOME NATION.

The NBA Trade Deadline is usually a day where the Fantasy Basketball world is shaken up.  Today it was a day where only 1 major moves happened, but of course there were few game-changer trades you need to keep an eye on.  The Sebastian Telfair to Toronto trade is not big enough to be noted.

FANTASY BASKETBALL NBA TRADE DEADLINE

J.J. REDICK – G – MIL

While many people see this as a bad situation for Redick owners, it could end up being good.  J.J.’s role in Orlando seemed to be heading in the wrong direction.  Maurice Harkless started, Arron Afflalo was outplaying him.  Now he goes to a Bucks team that really lacks anybody at the SF position.

J.J. is too small to play SF, but he is dangerous enough to where a lot of SF’s cannot guard him.  With Luc Richard and Mike Dunleavy manning the position for the Bucks so far this season, Redick could turn into a dynamite Fantasy Option.  Add him in all leagues if people think he will be a strict backup for Ellis/Jennings.

VERDICT: Value will go up.

PLAYERS THAT BENEFIT: Maurice Harkless. Arron Afflalo.

PLAYERS THAT LOSE VALUE: Monta Ellis. Brandon Jennings. (less shots)

 

 

JORDAN CRAWFORD – G – BOS

This is a move that will bring joy to the Fantasy Basketball world.  Jor-Craw was playing at an elite level when Bradley Beal and John Wall were out.  When both returned, Crawford suffered an injury himself and his value never returned to anything like it was.

Going to a Boston Celtics team where Avery Bradley/Courtney Lee and Jason Terry manning the minutes, none of them come close to the dynamic offensive player Jordan Crawford is.  For those of you who have never seen Jordan Crawford play before, here is a game where he played against Portland in January when his value started to take a hit.  10 Points in 4th quarter on the road, until this.

YOU WILL WATCH THIS MORE THAN ONCE

Jordan Crawford will score 15+ Points off the bench every night as his playing time will get to 28+ Minutes a night with ease.

VERDICT: Value will go up.

PLAYERS THAT BENEFIT: Bradley Beal.

PLAYERS THAT LOSE VALUE: Courtney Lee. Avery Bradley. Jason Terry. Jeff Green.

 

 

PATRICK PATTERSON – F – SAC

Patrick Patterson was once a player with low-end value with his surprise 15+ Point nights as well as knocking down multiple 3PTM, all to go along with his 6+ Rebounds.

When everything was going good for Patrick, things started to go in the wrong direction as he got injured and Marcus Morris stepped up beautifully.  Eventually Patterson got his job back, but Morris creeping behind him on the bench every night threw off the rhythm/confidence Patterson needs to have when out there.

Going to Sacramento to play behind Jason Thompson/DeMarcus Cousins.  He will be a player on every waiver wire, not to mention Chuck Hayes who the Kings like way more than they should.

VERDICT: Value will go Down.

PLAYERS THAT BENEFIT: Nobody.

PLAYERS THAT LOSE VALUE: Nobody. 

THOMAS ROBINSON – F – HOU

The Body, also known as Thomas Robinson, will be a nice player with the Rockets.  He should get every opportunity to be a consistent player being drafted one pick ahead of Damian Lillard in 2012.

Robinson is a very aggressive who could be a constant double-double threat right out of the gates.  Think J.J. Hickson.

The fact that Robinson was traded to another team gives him some value, and if you need rebounds..Grab Thomas now.

VERDICT: Value will go up.

PLAYERS THAT BENEFIT: Nobody.

PLAYERS THAT LOSE VALUE: Nobody. 

FANTASY BASKETBALL RETURNING STAR QUICK HITS

*Add Thaddeus Young if he was dropped in any league. Returning by the end of the month.

*Andrew Bynum is going to play again this season. He could be a force come Fantasy Playoffs. He should not be on any wire.

*Mo Williams makes a great add in all leagues for teams that have a playoff spot clinched.  He should return soon and give you a lot of 3PTM and solid Assist numbers.

*Kevin Love will return Mid-March.  No reason for him to be on any Waiver Wire at this moment.

*Danny Granger is going to return this weekend.  He will be a Fantasy Option again this season by early March.

*Derrick Rose is still not close to returning.  He may not be a Fantasy guard worth holding onto late in the year, but if you have the extra roster space with a playoff spot clinched.  No reason not to throw him on the back of the roster.

    1. without a doubt it does.

      But keep in mind that Thomas Robinson could eat up a lot of Delfino’s minutes.

      Carlos will still find at least 28+ Minutes a night whether it is Chandler Parsons having a bad game, or just finding time to rotate him with Thomas Robinson or giving James Harden a breather.
