We have arrived at the mid-way point in this season and I hope that all of you are staying on the podium for your leagues; don’t forget how much of a difference one week can make. If you have fallen down the ladder then just call this a lifeline.

20% and Under
If you play in a small league with 10 or less players then this info probably isn’t the best for you. For those in deep leagues though, you may want to pay attention and use those add/drops that you have this week. All of the following players are undervalued at an owner percentage of 20% and under in Yahoo leagues.
-D.J. Augustin G, Chi (Own: 20%)
This guy is going to go quick so get on your horse. It’s obvious that D-Rose is done and a couple of nights ago Hinrich was taken off the court with a hamstring injury so D.J. is there go-to. Even before Hinrich went down, he was worth picking up as he has dropped around 20 points in five of his last six games, including his season high 27 against the Lakers with five three pointers.
-Ramon Sessions G, Cha (Own: 12%)
Kemba Walker is doubtful to play for the rest of this week which means Sessions will get his starts. He has scored double digits in his last three games and has dropped at least five dimes in his last four games.
-Courtney Lee G, Mem (Own: 9%)
Check that title one more time, I’ll wait … yes that does say nine percent! This means that he is available in your league. As a starter for the Grizzlies, Lee has averaged 14.6 points, 3.4 boards and 1.2 assists. I challenge any of you to look at your roster now and just see if there aren’t a couple of players that are below these numbers.
-Wesley Johnson SF, Lal (Own: 20%)
I try very hard to stay away from my Laker bias when I write, but this kid is worth an exception. With Kobe still out and returning slowly in a couple of weeks, Johnson could be a good pickup just to get you through a couple of weeks. He averages 14.8 points a game with 5.2 boards to go with it. As a starter for the Lake Show, he is a big shooting threat with almost two 3’s a game and a FG% of 48.2
