Amir Johnson's huge fantasy value
By Joe Kaiser
Without Andrea Bargnani to share playing time with, Amir Johnson is on quite a roll in Toronto and that should continue until the end of the season.
Johnson had to split time with Ed Davis for the first half of the season, then briefly with Bargnani after Davis was traded to Memphis. Now that neither are around, Davis' minutes are up and he's taking full advantage.
Here's Tom Carpenter of ESPN's Fantasy Basketball Blog with more.
Tom CarpenterJohnson is a double-double threat for the rest of 2012-13
"Detroit Pistons fans long hoped to see Amir Johnson develop into a reliable double-double threat. Unfortunately for them, it took eight years, including four with a different team. But sure enough, at age 25, Johnson has averaged 13.6 ppg, 10.6 rpg, 1.6 bpg and shot 60.0 percent from the field in nine games this month. That includes Sunday's 18-point, 18-rebound performance and Friday's 12-point, 21-rebound outing. He is dialed in, and with Andrea Bargnani out of the picture, Johnson should remain a double-double threat for the remainder of the season."
