This Week’s Topic:
With team schedules over the last four weeks of the season in mind, what likely free agent player would you recommend fantasy owners pick up for a playoff run?

My Response:
Over four weeks schedules will balance out so I wouldn’t really factor that in. I’d simply roll with guys who could get opportunities down the stretch.

Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia 76ers
The Sixers are toast. Holiday is getting the experience he needs as the Sixers build for the future. He’ll have his ups and downs, but is a decent option going forward.

Anthony Morrow, C.J. Watson, & Reggie Williams, Golden State Warriors
Marrow and Williams have been huge for the last few weeks. As long as they are healthy and in the rotation, they will produce. In deeper leagues Reggie Williams could be a nice find down the stretch.

Darren Collison & Marcus Thornton, New Orleans Hornets
The longer Chris Paul remains out, the likelihood of his return decreases. If there are only a handful of games left and the Hornets are out of it, why risk further injury. If that’s the case Collison and Thornton will continue their furious finish. Even if CP3 does come back, the talented duo should still be fantasy factors down the stretch.

Drew Gooden, Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers are a sorry bunch. Fortunately, those who were able to gobble up Drew Gooden should get solid scoring and rebounding down the stretch.
