J.R. Smith (Guard) - Waiver Wire Pickup

Brad Leibfried - RotoBaller

After being an absolute failure for most of the first half of the season, Smith has returned to being a solid fantasy player in the last two weeks, during which time he is averaging 16 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists a game.  The best news, however, is that he is again a main cog in the Knicks rotation, as he has received 33.4 minutes a game over the past two weeks and is back to making 2.4 three pointers per game.  With teams focused on stopping Carmelo Anthony, Smith has found more open looks and taken advantage of them.  With no clear second option after Anthony, Smith should be able to maintain his recent scoring binge, which puts him in the category of must-own fantasy players.
