Seven Players, Seven Days: The Week In Review – 25th November 2013

Anthony-DavisAs the season started on a Tuesday this year, after each Monday’s games I will go through the previous 7 days games and give a top 7 player list. This will comprise who gave the most overall value in fantasy terms over that week on a per game basis. There will be a lot of tried and true names on the list, but also some surprises.

1. Anthony Davis, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans

16.3 points, 0 threes, 9.3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 5 blocks, 51.5 FG%, 83.3 FT%, 2 turnovers

The number 1 player so far this entire season is the second year man out of Kentucky. I thought he would breakout and was worth taking in the top 10 of drafts, but never did I think he’d be this good. He is the favourite to be the number 1 player of draft boards next preseason, with his ridiculous mix of stats. Don’t forget he was a guard for most of his career until a late growth spurt moved him into the frontcourt. That is why he is so valuable, he can do it all. Imagine when he adds an NBA three point shot to his arsenal.

2. Spencer Hawes, C, Philadelphia 76ers

26.5 points, 3 threes, 11 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0 steals, 0.5 blocks, 72.4 FG%, 83.3 FT%, 4 turnovers

3. Paul George, SG/SF, Indiana Pacers

26.8 points, 2.8 threes, 4.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 3.3 steals, 0.8 blocks, 49.3 FG%, 75.9 FT%, 2.8 turnovers

4. Kyle Lowry, PG, Toronto Raptors

12.5 points, 2.5 threes, 4.5 rebounds, 9.5 assists, 3 steals, 1 block, 38.1 FG%, 100 FT%, 2.5 turnovers

5. John Wall, PG, Washington Wizards

24.3 points, 0.8 threes, 4.8 rebounds, 8.5 assists, 2.8 steals, 0.5 blocks, 50 FG%, 88 FT%, 3.8 turnovers

6. Chris Paul, PG, Los Angeles Clippers

18.8 points, 2.3 threes, 4.5 rebounds, 12.3 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.3 blocks, 56 FG%, 66.7 FT%, 2.3 turnovers
