Category Strategy: Week 12 Targets
Category Strategy: Week 12 Targets

This article is part of our Category Strategy series.

A lot of familiar names return to the article this week, after slumps or changes to rotations caused their fantasy stocks fall. But the NBA season is a seven-month slog, so production ebbs and flows, and these guys are back on our radars.

I didn't include Marquese Chriss in any category, because he adds value across the board and I didn't want to clutter the article by repeating his name six times. He should be added in all leagues. His upside is higher than any player mentioned below, and his recent production is as good or better than everyone listed, too. He's getting added quickly, so you should act fast if he is available.

In general, we'll focus on players available in at least 50% of leagues on ESPN, Yahoo!, and CBS. That said, since the ownership can vary significantly from one site to the next, sometimes we have to fudge those rules a bit.
