Fantasy Basketball: Drop New York Knicks PG Jason Kidd
Jason Kidd has scored 17,445 points and racked up 12,038 assists throughout his professional career. He has made the trip to 10 NBA All-Star games, and even won a NBA Championship in 2011 with the Dallas Mavericks.
However, the future Hall of Famer is simply not a valuable fantasy basketball option anymore.
At the beginning of the season, Kidd was still the starting point guard of the New York Knicks and was seeing well over 30 minutes a game. The recent return of Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton, however, has all but killed Kidd’s daily fantasy value.
On Thursday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, Kidd played a jaw-dropping 34 minutes. He may have played the majority of the game, but he only registered three points, two assists, and two rebounds. It was a miserable outing from Kidd, and it just shows how much he is struggling right now.
On Wednesday night, Kidd played just eight minutes and 55 seconds in the team’s 94-117 loss to the Denver Nuggets. Kidd only scored three points with one assist in the game, and it was another disaster for any fantasy owner that started the former All-Star.
Kidd went from being a must start in all fantasy formats, to not even being worth a roster spot. It would be better to simply cut him and look for another middle-aged point guard at this point, because Kidd’s productive fantasy seasons are far behind him.
