Jon Barry All-Stars, Feb. 9

9 02 2009

Each week I look at the top 5 players available in my fantasy basketball league to determine the Jon Barry All-stars, named after waiver wire favorite Jon Barry.  At year’s end, the player appearing most often in this list will be named Jon Barry MVP.

Bit of a shake-up this week as a couple players got dropped into the top of the waiver wire and one other player got picked up.  This week’s five (total appearances on the list in parentheses):

Jamario Moon (1), Andrew Bynum (1), Matt Bonner (3), Delonte West (3), James Posey (3)

Delonte West falls 3 spots, having been at the top of the list the previous two weeks.  He’s injured, so he’ll keep falling, and as soon as he gets healthy, someone will pick him up.  That leaves, as I predicted, Bonner and Posey as the favorites for the Jon Barry MVP award.  However, Moon presents a new potential competitor.  Unlike Bynum, he wasn’t dropped because of injury, but rather because of his benching.  Given that he put up decent fantasy numbers throughout the year, and that he’ll continue to get some play time, he may be able to sneak in and take the award.  Either Bonner or Posey could get picked up any time.
