My Strategy: I was targeting Gordon and Green and was pleased that one of them was available. Green broke out last season averaging 16.5 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.2 threes and one steal per game. He also played 36 minutes per game and the third year forward should increase his versatile numbers.

Best pick: Gordon had a solid rookie season averaging 16 points, 1.7 threes 1 steal and shot 45% from the field and 85% from the foul line. He should build on those numbers and this was the third straight player Team Brown took who can shoot the three (Okur, Charlie V). Even though J.R Smith is suspended seven games to start the season he is a solid fantasy player. Stephen Jackson in round 7 is great value if he can find a way to play 70+ games.

Questionable pick: Lou Williams is on everyone’s list of sleepers but this is  a round too early for him. This will be his first year starting as his career high in assists is 3.2 as a backup. He averaged almost 13 points in 23 minutes last season with 1.1 steals and 0.8 threes per game. However, he shot 39% from the field. Garcia is out about four months after surgery on his broken right forearm.

Riskiest pick: T.J Ford has never played more than 75 games in his five year career. He had a productive season last year for the Pacers but averaged a career low 5.3 assists per game. Ford, has already missed some preseason time with a hamstring injury. The departure of PG Jarret Jack helps his value but Ford is still a risk.
