Jeremy Lamb knocked down three more 3-pointers during Sunday's win over the Bucks, adding 14 points, nine rebounds and two assists over 27 minutes.
Lamb has really turned his career around in Charlotte, and is currently putting up mid-round value on the season behind averages of 12.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.3 three-pointers and just 0.9 turnovers per game on 52.3 percent shooting from the field (all career-highs). Lamb is not owned in nearly enough Yahoo! Leagues (35 percent ownership) so make sure the 3-point sniper isn't sitting on your waiver wire. Nov 29 - 6:42 PM

Jeremy Lamb pitched in 18 points (6-of-12 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes to help Charlotte win at home on Wednesday.

Lamb is averaging career-highs in most categories this season and his effective FG percentage (60.4) has improved more than any qualifying player from last season. He's richly rewarding the Hornets' decision to extend his contract, and has earned a spot on all fantasy rosters.

Jeremy Lamb (shoulder) will play against the Nets on Wednesday.

He's fine and was on the injury report for the same reason on Tuesday. Lamb scored 12 points in 23 minutes and may see more playing time tonight. He's worth a long look in standard leagues while he's playing well.
Nov 18 - 5:27 PM

Jeremy Lamb scored 12 points on 5-of-7 from the field against the Knicks on Tuesday, adding six rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes.

That's some nice efficiency and his owners will take it, especially with no turnovers. Lamb has been solid in his last five, averaging 14.4 points, 5.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.4 treys on 58.8 percent from the field. He won't be this good, but he's worth a look in standard leagues with P.J. Hairston (quad) expected to miss several more games.
Nov 17 - 10:25 PM

Jeremy Lamb (shoulder) will play on Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

P.J. Hairston (quad) will be out for a little while, so Lamb could see a slight uptick in minutes off the bench. He has revitalized his career in Charlotte and is worth plugging into almost all active lineups on a seven-game night.
Nov 17 - 6:51 PM

Jeremy Lamb (shoulder) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

Lamb could get some decent minutes tonight with P.J. Hairston (quad contusion) out, and if he's able to give it a go, he'll make for an intriguing low-budget option in DFS with a favorable matchup against the Knicks.
Nov 17 - 6:14 PM

Jeremy Lamb (left shoulder strain) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

Lamb will see an increase in value if he's able to come off of the bench on Tuesday, as P.J. Hairston (quad) has already been ruled out. Fantasy owners will want to keep a close eye on his status, however, as Lamb is likely to be a game-time decision.
Nov 17 - 12:18 PM

Updating a previous item, Jeremy Lamb (left shoulder strain) is questionable to face the Knicks on Tuesday.

The questionable designation is always a tough one as it could go either way. If Lamb can't give it a go, Jeremy Lin is an option to start at shooting guard with Nicolas Batum moving to small forward in place of P.J. Hairston (quad). Stay tuned.
Nov 16 - 12:50 PM

Jeremy Lamb sat out Monday's practice with a shoulder injury.

Lamb started the second of of Sunday's game in place of P.J. Hairston (quad), finishing with 13 points, five rebounds, three assists and two blocks. However, if he can't play on Tuesday, it would likely mean Jeremy Lin moves into the starting five with Nicolas Batum moving to small forward. Lamb should already be rostered in the overwhelming majority of fantasy leagues.
Nov 16 - 12:14 PM

Jeremy Lamb moved into the starting lineup after P.J. Hairston (bruised quad) was ruled out, finishing with 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting, one 3-pointer, five boards, three assists and two blocks.

Lamb has been stellar in a bench role lately and should already be owned in 12-team leagues. A starting gig would be nice, but Hairston is day-to-day and his absence was mostly a precaution. Lamb's owners shouldn't fret no matter where he begins Tuesday's game.
Nov 15 - 7:48 PM

Jeremy Lamb continued to enjoy his new team on Friday with 15 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers and one turnover in 32 minutes.

He is getting shots and minutes with his new team while P.J. Hairston isn't doing much in the starting lineup. Lamb could fall apart at any moment, but he does have at least two 3-pointers and 14 points in five of his last six games. He is probably a late-round player at best, but at least he's trending up and is proving everyone wrong so far this season.
Nov 14 - 1:24 AM

Jeremy Lamb continued to justify Charlotte's decision to extend his contract, finishing Wednesday's game with 14 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes.

He made 6-of-10 field goals and is now 66.7 percent from the field in his past five games -- that's even more remarkable given how often he shoots from downtown. He'll chip in a few rebounds and occasional steals, and is worth stashing away while averaging 24+ minutes in a featured bench role.
Nov 11 - 9:47 PM

Jeremy Lamb scored 18 points off the bench in Tuesday's win over the Wolves, adding four boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

Lamb has been solid lately and is arguably the Hornets' best offensive weapon off the bench. He is quietly averaging 13.4 points, 4.0 boards, 1.0 assists and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five games and is starting to become a decent option in very deep leagues.
Nov 11 - 12:39 AM

Jeremy Lamb made 2-of-8 from the field for four points with four rebounds and two turnovers in 23 minutes on Saturday.

He had a nice little two-game run, but this is the Lamb we've been used to over the past three seasons. He's only an option in very deep leagues.
Nov 8 - 3:21 AM

Jeremy Lamb scored 16 points with four rebounds and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

Is this like a reverse contract year? Since getting his three-year deal on Nov. 2, Lamb averaged 18.0 points, 4.0 boards, 1.0 steals and 2.0 treys on 16-of-21 from the field. His body of work suggests this is a giant fluke, but keep an eye on him. We wouldn't suggest adding him unless you have garbage at the end of your roster.
