One of my must have players for all of my fantasy teams this year is Nerlens Noel. He averaged 13 points, 10 rebounds, 2 steals and 2.3 blocks in 26 games after the All-Star break last season and last night he put up a great fantasy line of 15 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists, 6 steals and 2 blocks! He only made 6 of 14 shots and missed over half of his free throws (3-7) but this was his first preseason game under .500 from the line.
Another reason to draft him a round (3rd) earlier in your fantasy league is because he’s pretty fun to watch too. How often do you get to draft a sleeper that’s exciting?
