Fantasy Basketball’s Biggest Surprises

Dec 29, 2007

We’ve covered Fantasy Basketball’s Biggest Disappoinments  already so it’s time to look at the flip side.  These are guys you selected at the end of your draft on a flier or were lucky enough to pull off the waiver wire.  However, you obtained these players, they’ve found a spot in your weekly roster.

Chris Kaman - You were expecting decent numbers, but 18 & 14?  That’s unbelievable.  Throw in nearly three blocks per game for good measure.

Rudy Gay – Rudy was decent his rookie season, but not many people saw a 20 point a night guy this soon.  Averaging nearly six rebounds per night while qualifying as a SG is a nice bonus.

Mike Dunleavy – The coach’s son has stepped up his game in Indiana.  His scoring is up three points per game.  His field goal percentage is at a career high.  He’s over 80% from the line for the first time.  Even his assists are slightly up.

Andrew Bynum – I doubt Kobe will be making any videos on Bynum this offseason if he keeps it up.  He’s been a beast of late putting up double-doubles as if his name were Tim Duncan.

Grant Hill – You knew he would do well in Pheonix’s system.  You probably figured he would have broken down by now.

Hedo Turkoglu – Who saw the season Hedo’s putting up?  Especially when you consider they signed Rashard Lewis in the offseason.  He’s been solid averaging over 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists per tilt.

Jose Calderon - Another guy that surfaced from my Waiver Wire Bin.  Calderon has been real solid handing out dime after dime.

Just missed
Ronnie Brewer, Daniel Gibson, John Salmons, and Beno Udrih.
