Should you sell high on Deron Williams?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, I took a look at some players who have gotten off to hot starts, to see if Fantasy owners should be looking to make a move. One of the key names to come up was Nets guard Deron Williams, who looks spry and healthy following a few years of ankle issues. Here is what I have to say about Williams:

"Williams has looked mighty healthy so far this season, and is putting up the kind of numbers we have come to expect from a guy who was once in the running for the Best Point Guard title. He is back to attacking the basket and drawing fouls, while taking on a less passive role in the offense. Williams is taking just 20.9 percent of his shots on spot-up situations, compared to 28.6 percent last season; that's a good sign."

Ultimately, selling high on Williams might make sense if you are worried about the health of his ankles. However, if offseason surgery was enough to get him through the season, you're going to miss out on a potential top-10 season at his position.
