Yahoo Sports' Dan Titus explains why fantasy managers should invest in Tyrese Maxey right now.
DAN TITUS: In this week's "Stock Watch," I think fancy managers should be buying low on Tyrese Maxey. The three-year pro was top 50 in per-game value before injuring his foot in mid November. Since returning from a 19-game absence, Maxey has been outside the top 150 in per-game value. Now, it's only been nine games, but I think this is the perfect time to strike while he's still adjusting.
For nine category leads, especially, he's been struggling with his efficiency, and his scoring has been down. He's only shooting 43% from the field, 33% from deep while averaging 18 and one-half points per game. That's nearly four points less than what he was averaging before his foot injury. Another thing I'm expecting to go up is his minutes per game.
So I'm expecting some positive regression in the shooting department, but the minutes increase as well as Maxey gets more comfortable back into the fold, returning into that pre-injury form. I think this makes a perfect buy-low spot for Maxey, as he should finish well ahead of his 90th ranking right now in per-game value.
