EB is starting to get comfortable with his new sixth man role, and Friday’s game was his fourth in a row scoring in double-digits, including a sweet season high 20 point game last Sunday. Sir Elton is averaging 13.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 block over the past seven days, and he is playing well enough right now to warrant a pick up in most standard leagues. Dallas needs all the help they can get and let’s face it, so does your fantasy team. Ol’ grey Brand, he ain’t what he used to be, but he can still be helpful. He’s owned in just over half of Yahoo fantasy leagues, but that number is rising quick. I know, he may have burned you in the past, but it’s a brand new day, and hopefully a brand new Elton. Here’s what else happened Friday night in fanta...
