Martell Webster is coming off of a 34 point game against the Suns and his stock seems to be on the rise.
Analysis: There are plenty of positives when it comes to Martell Webster’s fantasy value. He’s averaging 35 minutes per game, 3.4 threes made per game and 16.7 points per game in the month of March. Those are great numbers from the twenty-six year old but there are causes for concern. Webster is averaging a combined 0.8 blocks plus steals per game this year in 29 minutes. That simply won’t cut it especially from a guy with his type of athleticism playing tons of minutes. Webster is also averaging 3.8 rebounds per game this year which is awful from a 6’7″ small forward in again… 29 minutes per game this season.
You have to know what you are getting yourself into with Webster. He hits threes and scores while shooting a respectable percentage from the field but he hurts you in the blocks, steals and rebounds department as a small forward. If he’s the right fit for you he may still be on the wire, he’s available in 50% of fantasy leagues.
