Description: Lakers guard Jeremy Lin is one of the biggest sleepers in fantasy drafts this season.
Insight: If you are waiting for the last minute and still haven't drafted, keep an eye on Jeremy Lin. He scored 19 points and had one rebound, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers off the bench in a preseason game against the Kings. Although Sacramento is not exactly the cream of the Western Conference, Lin figures to be a huge factor in the Lakers offense this season. He would be a great No. 2 fantasy point guard.

Description: The Rockets will trade Jeremy Lin to the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
Insight: The Rockets also sent future first- and second-round picks to Los Angeles and will get back cash and the rights to an overseas player. Houston made the deal in an effort to clear cap space to sign Chris Bosh, but Bosh spurned them to return to Miami. Lin averaged 28.9 minutes, 12.5 points, 4.1 assists and 1.2 threes last season and could start for Los Angeles, but he probably won't experience a big change in fantasy value.
