FANTASY BASKETBALL: SLEEPERS OF THE WEEK (Week 5)
Lamar Odom/ Shawn Marion
With Dirk Nowitzki shut down until January 29th (Next Sunday) the Mavericks will need a hero to save their season.
Not one player on this Maverick Roster will be enough, with Shawn Marion now getting the opportunity to play consistently 30+ minutes a game. Plus the addition of Lamar Odom now expected to fill the void that Marion was holding. Both of these players are must-adds in all leagues for the time being.
The Mavericks were 9-7 when Dirk exited the lineup. Saturday night in their first game without Nowitzki the Mavericks edged out the Hornets 83-81 on the road.
Shawn Marion: 36 Minutes, 14 Points, 12 Rebounds, 1 Steal.
Lamar Odom: 25 Minutes, 16 Points, 4 Rebounds, 1 3PTM.
Shawn Marion has been playing very well all week, averaging (9.5 Rebounds, 13.75 Points, 1.5 Steals, .5 Blocks) but the most important stat of all was he played more than 33 minutes in each game (4 games).
Lamar Odom on the other hand brings you the potential 3PTM per game, with good assist and rebound numbers. He can also put up points quickly when his shot is on.
Both players are great Adds for the week, and should not be on any waiver wire at this moment.
