Basketball demands we break down its players not just by stats, but by the time and place they occur. That’s not the case in NBA fantasy hoops, though, where cold calculations rule the day and the matchup. Who are the Fantasy Doctor’s choices for this week’s best pickups? Hit the jump to find out.

Fantasy Basketball: Buy Low, Sell High (12.27)

Tobias Harris

BUY LOW TOBIAS HARRIS, Orlando Magic Harris was a favorite of mine heading into draft day, but complications from a sprained ankle made most forget about the major fantasy impact he had at the end of last season. Now, he’s been upgraded from a recommended pickup of mine to the perfect buy low candidate. Since returning on December 13, Harris is putting up just 12.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 0.4 treys. His numbers have nowhere to go but up, and although he’s been better over his last three, averaging 16.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 0.7 threes, it’s still worth sending out an offer for him.

Roy Hibbert

BUY LOW ROY HIBBERT, Indiana Pacers The best time to send out a buy low offer is after a player has a couple of forgettable performances, so now is the time to strike on Hibbert. He’s averaging 12.6 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.9 blocks on the season, but his last two games have left much to be desired. Read More »

The Top 50 Fantasy Basketball Players Right Now

John Wall

Player values are officially set in stone now, so it’s time to update the Top 50. There aren’t too many drastic differences, but certainly there are some changes worth noting.

The biggest jump, once again, goes to Anthony Davis, who’s up 18 spots since the preseason edition, and Andre Drummond, who’s up an incredible 25 spots. You’ll notice that I came around on ranking injured players. It still leaves too much up for debate in my mind, but Anthony Davis’s needed presence was the deal breaker. Read More »

Kyrie Irving

BUY LOW KYRIE IRVING, Cleveland Cavaliers You’re still going to have to give up a lot in exchange for a stud like Irving, but owners are fed up with his underachieving and are certainly more likely to deal him now than they were at the beginning of the year. The former Rookie of the Year is shooting a career-low 40 percent from the field and the rise in assists that was talked about all summer simply hasn’t happened. He’s also experiencing dips in free throw percentage, three-pointers and steals. Read More »
