Sponsor Message: SB Nation's partner FanDuel is running a FREE money fantasy basketball league all season long Half of the league wins cash. Join now!
Everyone knows who the top names in the NBA are: JOHN WALL!!!, Stephen Curry, LeBron James, Blake Griffin, you get the picture.
But you don't win any fantasy basketball league with just superstars. They will eat up a huge proportion of your salary cap, leaving you to fill the rest of your team with scrap metal.
We have talked plenty about "bang for your buck players" in a nutshell. Today, we'll take it a step further by highlighting ten NBA players who have had a strong start to January with FanDuel's scoring system.
None of these players were named as All-Star starters, and none have made an All-Star game in their careers. It's important to take a look at trends a player has shown over his last several games. With most of January behind us, we can now see which players have been trending up, and are a more certain "bang for your buck" in addition to the superstar or two on your lineup.
I compiled this list of ten players who scored the most real-life points in January and picked the top players who have not made an All-Star appearance on this list.
So without further ado, here is the list! Remember that FPPG or fantasy points per game is the most important stat in FanDuel!
