Rick, what you know about this?
Marcus Thornton, SG, Sacramento Kings (47.3 percent owned): Thornton's ownership hasn't sunk to deep-league levels, but he's owned in far fewer leagues than he was when drafted 68th on average and counted on to be a fantasy starter this season. Though he has been disappointing coming off the bench for the Kings, he erupted for a season-high 36 points Tuesday, dropped 20 points with eight boards Wednesday and is averaging 13.8 points and 2.4 3s per game in February, with at least 12 points in six of his past eight contests. His stats have plummeted this season, his Player Efficiency Rating is the lowest of his career, and his field goal percentage sits at a harmful 41.2 percent, partly due to the fact he is hitting just 27 percent of his jumpers between 16-23 feet. However, he has improved in February and is still a legitimate 3-point threat, nailing 1.9 3s per game on 36.8 percent shooting from behind the arc for the season. He undoubtedly has the tools to help fantasy teams if he's getting opportunities, as illustrated by his averages of 18.4 points and 3.6 3s per game over his past five contests. Act now, as his ownership has risen 12.1 percent over the past seven days and will continue to do so if he keeps balling off the bench for the Kings.
Tobias Harris, SF, Orlando Magic (5.4 percent owned): Widely viewed as the best asset Orlando received in the J.J. Redick trade, Harris has intriguing length, skill and versatility. He has seen a considerable spike in value since the trade, averaging 17.7 points, 6.3 rebounds,1.3 blocks, 1.0 steals and 0.7 3s per game in his first three contests with the Magic. Per 40 minutes, Harris is averaging 16.8 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 0.9 blocks and 0.9 3s, flashing the ability to contribute modestly in multiple categories. His 3s/steals/blocks potential is exciting, especially considering he's just 20 years old. If early returns in Orlando are any indication of what we can expect going forward, Harris is perhaps the biggest beneficiary of trade deadline deals and has surfaced as a fantasy option beyond deep leagues.
