FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Jimmy Butler was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team on Monday.

Butler is a beast. The kid finished the regular season tied with Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony for the most minutes played per game at 38.7 and unlike Melo, Butler manned up on the defensive end on the reg while also being forced into a larger role on offense as the Bulls lost Luol Deng via trade and were without their main offensive threat in Derrick Rose. In regards to fantasy next year, I would put Butler in a similar class with the Warriors Andre Iguodala in that they both bring more value to their own basketball teams then they do fantasy teams.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
