Mmmmmmm, is there anything saucier in fantasy basketball than a rookie fresh from a great Summer League tearing up preseason?! Obviously Ricky Rubio‘s haircut is the only thing saucier to me!
After Stanley Johnson posted some crazy stats in Vegas (16.2 PTS 1.8 STL 1.0 BLK), StanVan has given his prodigal son StanJo a ton of run in preseason and the rook has taken off with multi-3PTM games in his first 3, a rainbow line last Thursday against BKN (12/7/2/2/2) and frequently getting to the stripe. Unfortunately he’s cooled off a tad the past two games with a little bit of a dud last night, and he’s in a pretty robust rotation of SG and SF, mainly with the much more boring Marcus Morris playing solid this preseason as well. But even at likely a bench role to start the year, Johnson can play anywhere from the 1-to-4, as he’s already played some out-of-position PG this preseason. In the last update to my Top 200 ranks, I moved StanJo to 94th for the rainbow line upside. I’m not going too crazy for the rookie nookie, but he’s certainly worth a look around 100 in the 9th round. If only he had a twin like Morris – but also named Stanley – then we could have dueling StanJos in the NBA! Here’s what else has gone on through the past week of preseason:Please, blog, may I have some more?
