The lightning-quick rookie has adapted well to the pro game, averaging 14.8 points, while shooting 51 percent from the field and 88 percent from the charity stripe. His fantasy-friendly 4-pack of games include: Golden State, Portland, Dallas and Memphis.

Start 'Em: Kelenna Azubuike (SG, Warriors)
Golden State may be a tough sell in real-world basketball, but all is well in fantasyland. To wit, take a gander at Azubuike's 12.4 points and 5 boards per night. And with four games in Week 3 (Minnesota, Indiana, New York, Milwaukee) ... maybe he'll hit 15 3-pointers in that span.

Start 'Em: Grant Hill (SF, Suns)
Has Hill ever cleaned the glass for 8 rebounds a night at any point in his career? If this is a dream, don't wake us!

Start 'Em: Carl Landry (PF, Rockets)
He brings fantasy goodness in scoring, rebounds, blocks, free-throw percentage and field-goal percentage. Plus, he has four games against Dallas, Memphis, Sacramento and the Clippers.

Start 'Em: Channing Frye (C, Suns)
As long as you don't expect him to drain six 3-pointers every night, you'll be satisfied with his consistent contribution in points, rebounds, blocks and shooting percentage. His 4-pack includes: Philly, New Orleans, Toronto and the Lakers.

PICKUP OF THE WEEK: Beno Udrih (PG, Kings)
Udrih is the direct benefactor to Kevin Martin's 2-month absence (wrist surgery).

Sit 'Em: T.J. Ford (PG, Pacers)
His slow start to the season hits even harder this week -- thanks to Indy's 2-pack of games.

Sit 'Em: Randy Foye (SG, Wizards)
There's nothing positive to glean from his poor shooting percentage (below 40) and miniscule assist totals.

Sit 'Em: Carlos Delfino (SF, Bucks)
Aside from Brandon Jennings and Andrew Bogut, it might be a good idea to just avoid all Milwaukee players for the foreseeable future.

Sit 'Em: Tyler Hansbrough (PF, Pacers)
His numbers (13 points/5 boards) are fine for a rookie... but it's hard to produce when you're in a hotel room watching ESPN. Be weary of any Indiana player with just two games for Week 3.

Sit 'Em: Ronny Turiaf (C, Warriors)
Don't be fooled by his 4-pack of games this week -- unless you're dying for blocked shots, his woeful scoring averages will be the bane of your existence.
