Nick Young (Current Rate Of Ownership: 63.6) – Though relegated to the Lakers bench upon Kobe’s return, Young remains a potent offensive weapon capable of providing three-pointers in bunches. ¬†Over the last three weeks he’s scored 17 or more points and/or shot two or more three-pointers in a game six times. He also rebounds fairly well, can get you an assist or three, and nabs the occasional steal or block.

With Jordan Farmar returning soon, Young’s stock might potentially take another hit but that was also the projected diagnosis when Kobe was nearing playing time. And that has yet to happen. As long as he continues to shoot at 38 percent from beyond the arc, he should be a player that is owned at a 65-70 percent rate in leagues.
