We'll get right to the recommendations this week:

Kris Humprhies (69% owned) - Humphries is averaging just under 17 points and 17 rebounds per game in March. Call it the Deron Williams effect (or the Kim Kardashian effect, if you'd rather).

Aaron Brooks (62% owned) - Brooks will have a larger role with Steve Nash recovering from a injury to his pelvis.

Tyler Hansbrough (52% owned) - Psycho-T is putting up numbers like he's back at Carolina - Tuesday's game was his fifth straight with 20 or more.

Francisco Garcia (35% owned) - Garcia is up to 30-plus minutes per game now, and is definitely worth a look if he continues to get that much run.

Toney Douglas (31% owned) - Chauncey Billups' return hasn't cut into Douglas' playing time - Mike D'Antoni used a Billups/Douglas backcourt extensively on Tuesday, and Douglas played about as much as any Knick starter while scoring 17 points, dishing out four assists and grabbing three rebounds and two steals.

Nenad Krstic (24% owned) - Shipping up to Boston has given Krstic's numbers a nice boost - he's averaging over 13 points and seven boards since becoming a Celtic.

Kendrick Perkins (19% owned) - Don't be alarmed by Perk's 20-minute OKC debut; all of Scott Brooks' starters played limited minutes on Monday's blowout win over the Wizards.

Derrick Favors (15% owned) - Rookie should get extended minutes for a while, as Paul Millsap works his way back from a knee injury.

Reggie Evans (14% owned) - Need boards? Evans has 44 in three games since returning from injury.

Al Thornton (6% owned) - Don't get too excited about the team-high 23 points he scored on Monday; the game was a blowout, and Keith Smart opted to rest his regulars and give reserves like Thornton some extra run. But note this - Thornton's shooting over 60 percent from the floor since joining Golden State; that sort of production can become a regular job in a hurry.

Josh Childress (7% owned) - He hasn't been playing much, but an impressive outing against the Spurs on Monday (7-10 shooting, six boards, four dimes, a steal and a block in 21 minutes) could help Childress win a more regular role in Alvin Gentry's rotation down the stretch.

Michael Redd (3% owned) - Could be available for Wednesday's game against the Magic. We don't expect much either - but don't forget, Redd was one of the games' top shooters before getting sidelined with long-term knee -problems. If given the opportunity and if healthy, he can probably still fill it up from outside.
