The Royals avoided arbitration with closer Greg Holland, agreeing to a one-year, $4.675 million contract.

Holland struggled to star last season and then went bonkers. Let others overpay for the likes of Aroldis Chapman and just tab Holland as your top arm out of the pen a year after he struck for 47 saves, 103 strikeouts, a 0.87 WHIP an a superlative 5.72 K/BB ratio.ANALYST: Ray Flowers

Jae Crowder scored 18 points (8-17 FGA) and grabbed four rebounds off the bench in the Celtics 85-84 win over the Jazz on Wednesday night.

Crowder has been great off the bench for Boston since coming over at the deadline as he has had several outings with double figure scoring. He should however, not be viewed as a reliable fantasy option, so don't pay too much attention to his name in the box scores. Analysis: Dom Murtha

The Seahawks are reportedly interested in Tramon Williams and Cary Williams to possibly replace Byron Maxwell.

Wednesday it was reported 12 teams were interested in Cary Williams, so just because Seattle is interested does not mean either player will end up there. Maxwell played in 13 games for the Seahawks in 2014 with two interceptions, 12 passes defended and 39 tackles. Either of the cornerbacks the Seahawks are considering would likely be downgrades from Maxwell. Analysis: Steve Pimental

The Saints are reportedly trying to trade Curtis Lofton.

Even after they released Pierre Thomas Wednesday the Saints were still well over the salary cap, and trading Lofton would save New Orleans $5.25 million. Only the Raiders had a worse fantasy defense than the Saints last season, and while trading Lofton probably cannot hurt, it certainly will not help, either. Whichever defense gets Lofton will get a slight bump in fantasy value. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Mo Williams scored 14 points and recorded 14 assists in the Hornets convincing 115-91 win over the Nets on Wednesday night.

Since the trade, Williams quietly has been one of the best players in the NBA. His assist numbers have been off the charts, as he has recorded a double-double in four of seven games, and his scoring has hovered around 20 points each night. Pick him up now if he is still available, and consider him every night if you participate in daily leagues. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Placido Polanco said he is "90 percent" retired.

The 39-year-old Polanco did not play anywhere in 2014 after batting .260/.315/.302 in 118 games for the Marlins in 2013. Polanco left open the possibility to return to the Marlins, Phillies or Tigers, though if he really wants to win a World Series ring the Phillies are probably out. Some team would probably do well to make Polanco a minor league player/coach like the Cubs did with Manny Ramirez last season. Polanco would have NL-only value with the Phillies or Marlins, but it is hard to believe he could ever again be relevant in mixed leagues. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Ginobili came off the bench to play 21 minutes and score 13 points (5-9 FGA, 1-1 FTA) with two three-pointers while grabbing six rebounds, dishing out three assists, and two steals in the Spurs' 112-85 win over the Kings on Wednesday Night.

The best sixth man in the game struggled a bit with six turnovers, but still turned in a good night as most of the Spurs split playing time in the blowout win. He is not the old Manu, and there hasn't been a lot to show that things would be changing so it might be time to move on from Ginobili is you are able to in season-long fantasy leagues. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Parker led the Spurs in their 112-85 win over the Kings scoring 19 points (8-14 FGA, 3-3 FTA) and adding three assists with two steals on Wednesday night.

The Frenchman has been hobbled by a lingering hamstring injury and his performances have mirrored his discomfort. Wednesday night was vintage Parker as has only had one turnover in the blowout win that saw him score in double-digits for the second time in his last three games. Although he hasn't been an All-Star this season, Parker can still provide plenty of value for fantasy teams so continue to play him if you have him. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Leonard had 21 points (9-11 FGA, 1-4 FTA), adding two three-pointers to go along with five rebounds and three assists in San Antonio's 112-85 win over Sacramento on Wednesday night.

Leonard continues to better after having a highly efficient night from the field (81%) and quickly becoming the best offensive option that the Spurs have on their team. He averages 15 PPGa to go along with 7.4 RPG and is becoming an all-around steal in fantasy leagues. Analysis: Rob Trayah
