• We are already in Week 12 of the season, but there’s still a long way to go until the fantasy playoffs. We will once again be exploring potential adds and hot streams to help you get ahead in fantasy, whether it’s just for this week or for long-term purposes.

    Let’s dive in!

    As a bonus note, Andre Drummond had 21 points and 15 rebounds in 23 minutes tonight. He is above the 50% rostered threshold, but if Nikola Vucevic continues to be eased in, Drummond should remain 12-team relevant a little longer.

    Standard Leagues

    (<50% rostered on Yahoo)

    Aaron Nesmith, F, Pacers

    Tonight: 26 minutes, 17 points (6-of-10 FG, 3-of-5 3PT, 2-of-3 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one block

    Nesmith remains under-rostered, supplying very useful 12-team value through his 3-and-D numbers. Make sure your league isn’t one of the 64% he isn’t rostered in. Bennedict Mathurin scores more and he had 26 points, five 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 29 minutes but he should not be more widely rostered at 58% than Nesmith is. Mathurin typically won’t get steals to the same level of Nesmith and without his scoring, there isn’t much to fall back on. That isn’t to say Mathurin isn’t worth having at the moment either and he continues to perform every time I’m doing the Pickups of the Night for whatever reason.

    Jalen Smith, F/C, Pacers

    Tonight: 27 minutes, 11 points (3-of-8 FG, 1-of-4 3PT, 4-of-4 FT), nine rebounds, one assist, three blocks 

    I would not say that Smith is must-roster, but he can be fairly productive without full starter’s minutes. He should be a schedule stream for typical big stats and the chance of a 3-pointer or two.
