Is Jeremy Lin for real?
He has opportunity and the right system for him to flourish, so as long as he is getting the requisite minutes Lin should continue to put up fantasy starter worthy numbers for the New York Knicks.
Lin has averaged an amazing 25.5 points, 9 assists and 1.5 steals on .613% shooting in two starts for the Knicks and has stunned NBA fans the world over in the process.
He wont be able to maintain the scoring average once Carmelo Anthony and Amare return, but it is well within reason to be hopeful that his assist average may actually climb when the teams two best players return to the lineup.
Baron Davis also looms in the background but there is no reason to believe that Mike D’Antoni wont run with Lin until the wheels fall off.
In four February games to date Lin has averaged 19.5 points, 6.5 assists and 1.3 steals on .547% shooting as his skill set is proving a perfect mesh with Mike D’Antoni’s system.
Lin is currently available in 39 percent of Yahoo! leagues and should be picked up wherever available.
