Just in case you missed last night’s box score for the Raptors-Hawks tilt, Amir Johnson dropped a monster 18 and 13 with 2 blocks, starting in place of an injured Chris Bosh. He’s SF-PF eligible in most leagues, and he has three games left on the sked starting tomorrow against the Bulls. His last two games are against the Charmin soft Pistons and Kicks, so Johnson could in for a big week. He could easily average 12 and 10 with 2 blocks a game, and there’s room for more.
If you’re in the hunt for a fantasy title and your team is hurting for boards and blocks then Johnson could be the guy to pull your fat out of the fryer.
