OK I'm going to roll the dice here- the situation in Sac is wide-open and Evans' issues are with a knee and may be nontrivial. 11 assists with the 3s is a great line.

I agree. I just picked him back up and dropped Blatche. He's getting the minutes and as short term (& long term) goes, he's definitely an ADD. Keep in mind the following: Thornton going down will help with Salmons output for the next few weeks, Tyreke Evans going for 2nd opinion on knee and possibility of Cousins being traded would allow hopefully allow more shooting attempts for Salmons (depends who comes back for Cousins if he's traded) and he's averaging close to 30 minutes a game.

Seriously Rotoworld? Step up your game. He was starting even with Tyreke in the lineup. I agree he won't put up these averages with Tyreke back, but he was starting and without Tyreke and Salmons he's going to put up stats.



John Salmons made another start in place of injured Tyreke Evans (knee) and had 10 points, six assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on 4-of-9 shooting Tuesday.

Salmons is averaging 15 points, 3.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 2,0 3-pointers over his last five games, and is worth a pickup for as long as Evans remains out with his balky knee.

Yeah. But I don't get paid for my analysis! If I did I would proofread, I'd also know if Tyreke was actually spot starting for Tyreke or actually see that tyreke had been starting at the 2 and Salmons at the 3 with Thornton coming off the bench.

I saw the same thing and call BS in my head while you had the drive to call them out. Bugs me when they do this too but I simply learned to not read into the blurbs aside from raw stats, they put people as must own like Dunleavy that are not even that in a 12 teamer. SMhhh

Starting is one thing, but Tyreke has the ball in his hands a lot. Add that to Cousins and whichever PG is starting, and you end up with Salmons' production dropping significantly.

Im not even sure which rotoworld staff I dislike most. Seems to me football tends to be the most reliable with basketball and baseball seriously flawed at times.

Evans is back and Salmons is still producing. But in limited minutes, anyone see the game? Why did Salmons only play 22 minutes, even though he started at small forward? Im thinking of dropping Jared Sullinger for Salmons, but Kawhi is also available. I just like Salmons assist more.

I have Salmons on my bench in the event a need arises to deploy him in case of any of my players encounter 1-2 game weeks (Salmons having a 3-4 game week respectively). All Rotoworld has said for the past few weeks is Salmons heading back to the bench once Tyreke comes back but to be honest, that was the never the case as Salmons has always been the starting SF since Nov 18 versus Brooklyn and he continues to start. 43 minutes last evening should tell you more than you need to know. I agree, Salmons will see less shots as a result of Tyreke back in the lineup but Salmons is definitely an asset for deep leagues.

He's getting serious run. The only game recently where he got 18 mins was because they got completely blown out by the heat, so I think that should be discounted. He's averaging well over 30 mins per in January if you throw that game out.

His minutes seem to be at the expense of Marcus Thornton. Thornton was out almost all of January but got 29 mins the other night before going back down to single digit minutes. This is a situation to monitor.

Will he keep this up? Im just worried because even though he has good numbers last night, he only played 22 minutes. Im not sure if Keith Smart is going to mess with his minutes/role.
