Nikola Vucevic should be owned in all fantasy leagues. He's owned in 79 percent of Yahoo leagues, which seems low since fantasy owners should a) love double-doubles, b) love blocked shots and c) high shooting percentages. This is a guy who set the Magic's franchise record with 29 rebounds on New Year's Eve. Think about that for a second. This is a franchise that Shaquille O'Neal and Dwight Howard played for. And Vucevic now owns the record. On Sunday night, Vucevic scored 14 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, dished three assists, stole a ball and blocked a shot. Take a look at his last 10 games: 14.4 points (55.7 FG%, 61.5 FT%), 14.7 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1 steal, 1.2 blocks in 37.3 minutes. Now compare those with his stats on the season: 11.6 points (51.6 FG%, 65.6 FT%), 11.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists, .7 steals, 1.1 blocks in 32.1 minutes. His minutes have increased in January. He's locked down the starting gig in Orlando, and he's a must-own player in all leagues. He's my No. 1 waiver wire pick up of the year. Photo via Vucevic's Facebook page.
