Beno Udrih, PG (SA): Beno Udrih, better known as the backup/third-string point guard from San Antonio over the past couple of seasons, is now in Sacramento and with the injury to Mike Bibby, he's making waves in the fantasy world. Udrih's averaging over 33 minutes per game, which is already a good sign. He's scoring in double-figures (12.7 PPG) and even hit the 23-point mark against the Detroit Pistons on November 18th. He's also averaging 4.3 assists per game, which is low for someone you drafted, but pretty good for somebody off the waiver wire. He's a decent source for assists while Bibby is out.

Andrew Bynum, C (LAL): Andrew Bynum has had inconsistent minutes this season but has still scored in double figures in nine of 13 games. He needs to receive roughly 25 minutes a game to have value in categories other than points. In the last five games (not coincidentally Kwame Brown was injured), Bynum has finished with at least seven rebounds and one block per game. In that span he's averaging 12.6 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals. With Brown out indefinitely, Bynum has value indefinitely.

Jamario Moon, F (TOR): Rookie free agent Jamario Moon did more than just crack the Toronto Raptors roster -- he's starting and producing valuable minutes. He's averaging 8.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.6 blocks, 1.3 steals and 1.0 assists -- that's a a stat stuff for ya! Still not impressed? How's this for the box score from his last outing: 15 points, nine rebounds, six blocks and three steals. Moon still hasn't reached his ceiling because his minutes continue to increase. Don't sleep on him anymore.

Juan Carlos Navarro, G (MEM): If you are looking for a good source of three-pointers, Juan Carlos Navarro is your sharp-shooter. He averages nearly two per game but those averages are held back by the fact that he didn't start seeing consistent minutes until recently. In the four games that he's played over 30 minutes, Navarro has 16 threes.

Brendan Haywood, C (WAS): Just when it looked like Brendan Haywood would finally see a regular dose of minutes after Etan Thomas was lost for the season, Haywood sprained his ankle and allowed Andray Blatche to step in and light it up. Blatche has become a valuable player off the bench and should continue to cut into Haywood's minutes.

Theo Ratliff, C (MIN): Theo Ratliff getting hurt is almost as likely as him getting traded at the deadline -- it's an annual occurrence. Lo and behold, he injured his knee and is expected to be out for roughly a week. He's a decent source for blocks if his knee injury doesn't linger.
