#BIG3Fantasy Week 7 Scouting Report
Craig Ellenport

We wondered aloud last week if the return of Mr. Big Shot, Chauncey Billups, would mean fewer points for his Killer 3s teammate, Stephen Jackson. We pointed out that Jackson had averaged 21.7 ppg in three games without Billups, but the average dipped to 18 in two games with him.

So what happened in game 6? No letup for Jackson – he scored 23 in the Killer 3s’ big win over the Ball Hogs, and he remains second in the BIG3 in scoring at 21.0 ppg. Billups, on the other hand, was a bit rusty in his return to the floor, finishing with 8 points – though he did sink his fourth 4-pointer of the season.

Expect Billups to shake off the rust and have a big game this week as the Killer 3s take on 3’s Company. But regardless of your preference between the Killer 3s’ two big scorers, keep in mind that neither of them is the team’s best fantasy producer. That honor belongs to Reggie Evans.

Evans is miles ahead of the rest of the league in total rebounds, and that has fueled his climb to fifth on the list of top fantasy leaders. He remains the only BIG3 player averaging double digits in both points and rebounds.

Thanks to his 15 points and 18 rebounds last week, Evans scored 33.5 fantasy points. That would have been good for top fantasy producer most weeks, but not with the monster game produced by Andre Owens of 3’s Company. Owens (25 points including four 3-pointers, 11 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 block and 1 steal) put up a mammoth 45.5 fantasy points, which also vaulted him to the top spot among fantasy scorers for the season.

You can check the entire fantasy leaderboard here. These are the top 10 fantasy producers for the season:

Andre Owens, 3’s Company 180

DeShawn Stevenson, Power 152.5

Four more double-doubles in Week 6: Reggie Evans (15 points, 18 rebounds), Bonzi Wells (13, 11), Rasual Butler (14, 12), and Andre Owens (25, 11). For Evans, it was his league-leading fourth double-double of the season.

FOUR-PLAY

Four 4-point shots were made in Week 6 (4-for-14). Billups, having only played three games this season, is the only BIG3 player averaging 1 4-pointer per game. Rashad McCants became the fifth player to hit more than one for the season.

There are now 11 players who have hit at least one 4-pointer:

Mike Bibby, Ghost Ballers 5

Chauncey Billups, Killer 3s 4

DerMarr Johnson, 3’s Company 3

Rashard Lewis, 3-Headed Monsters 2

Rashad McCants, Trilogy 2

Derrick Byars, Ball Hogs 1

Cuttino Mobley, Power 1

Mike James, Tri-State 1

Stephen Jackson, Killer 3s 1

DeShawn Stevenson, Power 1

Xavier Silas, Ball Hogs 1

GAME-WINNING SHOTS

As a reminder, game-winning shots are worth 4 fantasy points. Mo Evans, in his first game since being traded to the Killer 3s, hit a game-winning shot – his only 2 points of the game. … Rashard Lewis hit his third game-winner of the season, tying him with DeShawn Stevenson and Al Harrington for the league lead.

Of the 15 players who have hit game-winning shots this season, six players have done it more than once. They are:

DeShawn Stevenson, Power 3

Al Harrington, Trilogy 3

Rashard Lewis, 3-Headed Monsters 3

Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, 3-Headed Monsters 2

Ricky Davis, Ghost Ballers 2

James White, Trilogy 2

Others who have hit one game-winner:

DerMarr Johnson, 3’s Company

Cuttino Mobley, Power

Derrick Byars, Ball Hogs

Mike Bibby, Ghost Ballers

Stephen Jackson, Killer 3s

Dion Glover, Trilogy

Bonzi Wells, Tri-State

Andre Owens, 3’s Company

Mo Evans, Killer 3s

NOTABLES

• With Rasual Butler traded to Power last week, we wondered if he and DeShawn Stevenson would be fighting for playing time, and thus points. That may yet happen, but an early injury to Jerome Williams last week created necessity for both players to stay hot. And they did. Butler and Stevenson both finished among the top six fantasy scorers of Week 6. With Junkyard Dog out a couple more weeks, expect more of the same.

• Rashard Lewis remains the BIG3’s leading scorer at 22.5 ppg. He joins Owens as the only players in the top 8 in points, rebounds and assists. He is also tied for first in blocks and tied for second in steals.

• Overall, four players are among the top 10 in points, rebounds and assists: Owens, Lewis, Cuttino Mobley and Al Harrington.
