The Ravens will exercise their right to extend CB Jimmy Smith's contract for a fifth year, and they would like to further extend his deal.

The former 2011 first round pick played his first full season as a starter with Ravens this past season starting all 16 games finishing with 50 tackles, two interceptions, and a league best 16 pass deflections according to Pro Football Reference. ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Evan Turner filled the stat sheet on Sunday, scoring nine points with seven rebounds, 10 assists and two steals in the Celtics 119-106 loss to the Clippers.

Turner has really stepped up his game of late and while he scored just nine points on Sunday he filled the stat sheet which definitely helped his fantasy owners. Over the past five games Turner is averaging 14.0 points, 6.8 rebounds and 8.0 assists which makes Turner a solid fantasy play in both standard and daily leagues. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Tyler Zeller scored 16 points and pulled down five rebounds in the Celtics 119-106 loss to the Clippers on Sunday.

Zeller starts at center for the Celtics but finds himself in a rotation with Kelly Olynyk which really hinders his fantasy value. Over the last five games Zeller is averaging 11.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.2 assist per game which really isn't enough to be worthy of fantasy considerations outside of the deepest standard leagues. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Isaiah Thomas scored a team high 19 points with four rebounds, four assists and one steal in the Celtics 119-106 loss to the Clippers.

Thomas turned in his second straight solid performance since returning from injury and while his 19 point effort was not enough to beat one of the Western Conferences best teams its a great sign for fantasy owners who can comfortable start Thomas again. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Blake Griffin filled the stat sheet on Sunday, scoring 21 points with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in the Clippers 119-106 win over the Celtics.

Griffin rebounded from a few quiet games to notch his third 20-point performance of the last five games. During that stretch Griffin is filling the stat sheet, averaging 18.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists. As the playoffs near it seems as if the Clippers top players are stepping up their game and Griffin is no different which should please his fantasy owners. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

DeAndre Jordan registered a double-double on Sunday, scoring 15 points with 14 rebounds and one steal in the Clippers 119-106 win over the Celtics.

By now daily owners should know to start any center that is facing the Celtics and Sunday the leagues leading rebounder did not disappoint. Jordan is averaging 13.6 points, 16.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game which ranks him among the best centers in fantasy during that stretch. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Chris Paul registered a double-double on Sunday, scoring 21 points with three rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and one block in the Clippers 119-106 win over the Celtics.

Paul took it to the Celtics on Sunday as the all-star point guard continues to dominate his competition down the stretch, averaging 22.4 points, 10.9 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.7 three-pointers for the month of March. Paul is one of the games best point guards for a reason and hes proving it which makes him a must start in all formats. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

J.J. Reddick scored a game high 27 points with five rebounds and four assists in the Clippers 119-106 win over the Celtics on Sunday.

Reddick has been on fire of late, averaging 21.8 points and 3.4 three-pointers over the past five games. Reddick is shooting nearly 60-percent from the field during this stretch which includes an impressive 56.7-percent from three-point range. While Reddick is shooting lights out hes worth starting in all fantasy formats. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Zach LaVine scored 17 points with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in the T’Wolves 110-88 loss to the Pelicans.

LaVine is excelling in the starting lineup, averaging 16.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.0 three-pointers over the past five games. As long as Ricky Rubio is sidelined LaVine is worthy of being started in all formats given his ability to score as well as contribute with a handful of assists and rebounds. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Adreian Payne registered a double-double on Sunday, scoring 14 points with 11 rebounds, one assist and two steals in the T’Wolves 110-88 loss to the Pelicans.

Payne notched his third double-double since being acquired by the Timberwolves in early February. For the Timberwolves Payne is averaging 7.8 points and 6.1 rebounds per game but when given starter minutes is a double-double threat. There is no real daily league value in Payne given his inconsistencies and hes really only worth starting in deep standard leagues. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Andrew Wiggins scored a team high 20 points with six rebounds and two assists in the T’Wolves 110-88 loss to the Pelicans on Sunday.

Wiggins once again had to going on Sunday as the likely NBA Rookie of the Year is averaging 22.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists over the past five games. For the season the No.1 overall pick in this seasons draft is averaging 16.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game for the Timberwolves. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Tyreke Evans had a quiet game on Sunday, scoring nine points with three rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in the Pelicans 110-88 win over the T’Wolves.

Evans is coming off two major performances against the Rockets and Kings which makes Sundays performance a big letdown. Evans only played 23 minutes which is likely due to the blowout nature of the contest and thus his low production total. Evans owners should just chalk this up to a quiet game and expect him to produce near his seasonal averages in the Pelicans next start. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Omer Asik scored 15 points with six rebounds and one assist in the Pelicans 110-88 win over the T’Wolves on Sunday.

Asik has limited fantasy upside being known more for his rebounding than scoring. His 15 point output is likely his ceiling while the six rebounds are below is 10 rebounds per game average. Asik is only worth starting in deep fantasy leagues given his one category production. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Anthony Davis filled the stat sheet on Sunday, scoring a game high 28 points with nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in the Pelicans 110-88 win over the T’Wolves.

A healthy Anthony Davis ranks among the games elite and over the past four games he has not disappointed, averaging 25.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 3.0 blocks and 2.0 steals per game. His shoulder injury has plagued him all season long and seems to be a constant threat to put him on the shelf but as long as hes healthy going into the game he is a MUST start. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.

Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day. Analysis: Spencer Silva

Wesley Johnson scored 17 points with five rebounds, three assists and one block in the Lakers 107-99 loss to the Nets.

It hasn't been a great season for Johnson who many figured would have benefited from Kobe Bryants season ending injury only to see him struggle to find his shot for the majority of the year. Johnson is averaging just 9.6 points per game this season and carries no real fantasy relevance outside of the deepest standard leagues. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
