Starts Of The Week

Monte Morris, Denver Nuggets, PG (10%)

According to Mike Malone, Jamal Murray‘s ankle will be him out for the “foreseeable future”. Murray is not the only Nugget dealing with an injury. Gary Harris is struggling with his groin. I mean…he is struggling with a groin injury. These injuries open the door for Monte Morris to get more starts and minutes.

If you are looking for someone to add to the three-point categories than Morris is perfect for you. He is shooting 39 percent from three-point range and is averaging about 3 attempts per game.

Morris is a great defensive player. He has five steals in his last three games. Plus he doesn’t have a lot of turnovers, unlike fellow teammate Will Barton who has eight turnovers in his previous four games. Morris’s defense and efficiency with the ball will keep on the court to knock down some three-pointers.

Morris’s Week 15 schedule is mixed with great matchups against the Grizzlies and Pistons, and tough matchups against the Bucks and Jazz. He should be started in every game despite the competition. if Murray’s ankle injury keeps him out longer than Morris could become a permanent player on your roster.

Reggie Bullock, New York Knicks, SG/SF (2%)

Bullock is another player in Week 15 that is going to benefit from a teammate’s injury.

RJ Barrett is the victim on the Knicks that fell to injury, which means more time for Reggie Bullock, who just returned from his own injury.

So far this season, Bullock is averaging 10 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and is shooting 41 percent from the field. I expect all his stats to increase with the extended playing time, and getting back into game shape.

Bullock had three double-digit point totals in his previous five games. That success should improve against two of his Week 15 opponents

The Knicks’ first game of Week 15 is against the Hornets. They’ve allowed 22 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game to shooting guards. The Knicks’ second Week 15 opponent, the Grizzlies, are even worse than Charlotte against guards.

The Grizzlies have allowed 23.9 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game to shooting guards.

Fantasy owners should definitely start Bullock in the Knicks first two games, but then sit him when they play the Pacers.

Sits For The Week

Tyler Herro, Miami Heat, SG/SF (52%)

I like Tyler Herro. I wish, I wasn’t saying to sit him, but based on the stats, Fantasy owners might want to sit Herro.

In Week 15, the Heat face the Magic (twice) and the Celtics. Two teams that Herro hasn’t had success against this season.

In his game against the Magic, Herro scored only four points in 25 minutes and shot 18.2 percent from the field (he had 17.5 true shooting percentage as well).

In his previous game against the Celtics, Herro scored five points in 20 minutes and shot 25 percent from the field.

Fantasy should just look to other options for Week 15, but once it is over reinsert Herro into your starting lineup.

Harrison Barnes, Sacramento Kings SF/PF (66%)

Remember last year when the Kings were a fast-paced team and were surprisingly fun to watch. Well, Luke Walton has put an end to the fast pace Kings, which is weird considering he came from the Warriors, who were all about the fast pace.

The Kings are 26th in pace of play in the NBA. The slowing of their pace has affected the play of all of their players. Add their offensive woes with their Week 15, (Minnesota, Oklahoma City, LA Clippers, and LA Lakers) you have a disaster waiting to happen.

The biggest disaster on the Kings is Harrison Barnes. He is a streaky scorer, one night he’ll score double-digit points then follow it with a couple of nights of single-digit points. This is a guy who could only muster up two points in 27 minutes against Phoenix.

The smart move for the Kings who be to give more minutes to Bogdan Bogdanovic, but when have the Kings ever made smart decisions.

Don’t be like the Kings. You make the smart move and sit Barnes in Week 15.

I'm a die hard fan of teams that constantly disappointment me every season. So, I write about fantasy sports to forget my sorrows. That's hard sometimes because I'm a Pacers correspondent for Fantasypros.com. I also recently graduated with honors from UNCC. Go Niners...I guess.
