We should probably add James Anderson to this list to keep an eye on.

I'm also keeping an eye on Tony Wroten as there seems to be plenty of positive comments on him lately.

I don't think either presents top 50 value, but rather more like top 100 to top 125 value if things fall into place and go right for them.

I've been impressed by the energy Brett Brown has the kids playing with. Yeah, it's been a couple of preseason games, but the effort has been nice.

Wroten is enticing, as he's always had the athleticism for the game. Now if he's found some semblance of a shooting stroke, he's worth a stab in deeper leagues. What I'm watching is his FT%. 16/18 so far in preseason seems to indicate he may have found something.

James Anderson isn't a bad gamble neither. He's nowhere near the athlete Wroten is, but he's easily their best outside shooter.

I nabbed wroten in a deep keeper league and i'm glad i did, he looked very nice with alot of confidence and a nice jumper. His coach is crazy about him so he is bound to get alot of playing time.

Adding to the list of sleepers:

Donatas Motiejunas
Taj Gibson


and I'm also keeping an eye on Jeffery Taylor. I'm not so sure MKG is going to make the next step this season and Taylor has been impressing during summer league and preseason.

I hope you're right Thrill about Motiejunas, but I saw some recent speculation on Red 94 that with Casspi's ascension,and the times that Asik gets PF minutes One of Jones and Motiejunas will only get 10 minutes a game and the other will get nada.

Gordon Hayward

The Jazz backcourt is missing a LOT of key minutes guys from last year, and the announcers in Utah are very high on Hayward being a key playmaker. They think he's a lock to average 35 mpg, up from around 30 the last two years. He's leading the team in a number of stats this preseason, and I think is very very likely to outperform his ADP of 93.

Also, Chris Kaman is by far winning the bid to start next to Pau Gasol, and even if he doesn't, the Lakers are going to heavily rely on the trio of Gasol-Kaman-Hill at the 4-5. Kaman's looked great, has the skills to rebound, block, and score around the basket with both hands. His ADP is low enough that I can't even find it on Yahoo (lower than 136) and for someone looking for another C at the end of the draft who can put up all the main big man stats with solid percentages, I would pick up Kaman 10 times out of 10.

The only downside is his injury history, but he's motivated to prove himself this year, and has completely changed his diet to dedicate himself. (Used to be a vegetarian because he didn't like the injected hormones in meat, but is now eating all grass-fed beef as protein.)

^i like both hayward and kaman this year.

derozan has looked very strong so far in the preseason, showing good instincts on both sides of the ball. usually don't like owning him b/c of the relatively empty stats he provides, but this year might be different if he can add that three ball and develop into a 20 ppg scorer.

In re Donatas Motiejunas - I don't like him, nor Terrance Jones. Think McHale will either go with an Asik/Howard combo when needed, or, the majority of the time, go small ball. Outside of the obvious HOU core (Harden, Parsons, Lin, Howard), for fantasy production I like, in order: Beverley, Garcia, Casspi and Asik.
