Found January 18, 2013 on Hoop Fantasies Fantasy Basketball Blog:
Ed Davis was dominant with 18 points and 10 rebounds in the Raptors' loss Friday night. Davis stuffed the stat sheet with six assists, a steal and two blocks. The former North Carolina Tar Heel is owned in a ridiculously low 34 percent of Yahoo leagues. He's posted great numbers in his last five games: 14.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and .6 blocks. Davis' downside is his 57.1 percent free-throw percentage. Rookie shooting guard Terrence Ross came off the bench for 18 points, four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, an assist and a steal. He's done absolutely nothing since a January 2 blow up (26 points, six 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists and two steals). He's worth watching, but I wouldn't run out and grab him just yet (owned in 3 percent of Yahoo leagues). Amir Johnson had a respectable nine points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 47 minutes. He replaced Aaron Gray in the starting lineup. Johnson is owned in 45 percent of Yahoo leagues. In other news, Jose Calderon played just 20 minutes (13 points, three 3-pointers and four assists). Kyle Lowry fouled out but double-doubled with 11 points and 11 assists.

He liked...
