Blocks And Boards- Okafor

Emeka Okafor is once again rebounding at an elite level as the fantasy world takes notice.

Analysis: Emeka Okafor is averaging 12.1 RPG with 2.4 BPG over his last five games. Yes, his minutes are around the thirty minute mark in this span but his play has improved considerably as well. He will always hurt you at the line with a 62% average this year but he only gets to the line twice per game. But unlike a Reggie Evans(3.1 PPG) or a Bismack Biyombo(4.8 PPG) he won’t kill you in the points department. Okafor only averages 7.6 points per game this season but he is averaging 10.4 points per game over his last five games which is a step in the right direction.

December was a fine month from the UConn product which saw him average 7.9 boards, 1.3 blocks and average 49.5% from the field. With each passing month this year his minutes are increasing and so is his fantasy production. He still remains a lower tier fantasy center but if he continues to receive nearly thirty minutes per game he will rebound and block shots at a more than serviceable rate.
