The Sacramento Kings are wide open in terms of fantasy potential. Both of their team leaders, De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis, are injured. World champion Donte DiVincenzo along with Davion Mitchell and Damian Jones are options trying to fill that void.

And with the regular season almost over, even the slightest stat changes can makes a difference in your fantasy success.

So let’s take a look at the aforementioned DiVincenzo to determine if he is worth grabbing for your fantasy purposes.

2021-22 Fantasy Basketball: Donte DiVincenzo

In the 2020-21 campaign, DiVincenzo was a reliable streamer for steals, points, three-pointers, and strong rebounds from the guard position.

He averaged 10.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.0 made three-pointers, and 1.1 steals per game in that campaign.

This season is a different story for the Big Ragu. He missed the first several months of the season with an ankle injury. After that, he was traded to the cellar-dwelling Kings after 17 games with the Bucks.

Since the trade, he’s played 25.3 minutes per game but hasn’t been able to improve on any of last season’s numbers.

In the midst of a tanking team, DiVincenzo is being handed plenty of responsibility. De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis together have a usage rate of 56.7%.

Is DiVincenzo taken in your league?

Don’t fret – there are plenty of other options for you. Davion Mitchell and Trey Lyles have the potential to be effective streamers over the final few games of the season.

Davion Mitchell is averaging 16.2 points, 2.3 three-pointers, 3.8 assists, and 1.2 steals while shooting 46.9% from the field in the last two weeks. With four of his six games coming alongside Fox, don’t be surprised to see his numbers take a jump.

Trey Lyles is averaging 13.0 points, 1.5 three-pointers, 8.0 rebounds, 0.7 blocks, and 1.0 turnovers per game on 51.9% shooting from the field and 88.2% from the free-throw line over the last two weeks.

Sabonis was also present for four of the Kings’ last six games, so Lyles should have every opportunity to improve on those numbers.

Donte DiVincenzo doesn’t offer flashy stats, but he’s an effective streamer. Don’t hesitate to add the Big Ragu or his teammates as you make moves to win a championship.
