This part of the season -- the end of January/early February -- is typically the time of year where the players are starting to get a bit rundown ahead of the All-Star Break next month.

This is also the time of year when young players with fresh legs start to make more of a claim for regular minutes down the stretch.

This week's list is comprised of four young players on the rise and one older veteran that is showing he still has something left in the tank.

Herbert Jones, SF/PF, New Orleans Pelicans (19.1% rostered in ESPN leagues): Jones has been in this space before, but he continues to fly just under the radar with solid results. He's a jack-of-all-trades player that can be valuable, particularly in roto leagues. Over his last 13 games, he has averaged 1.8 SPG, 1.3 3PG, 1.1 BPG, 13.7 PPG (54.1 FG%, 85.3 FT%, 41.3 3P%) 4.2 RPG, 2.2 APG and only 0.8 TO/game. He's almost completely additive, contributing positive value with very little negative, and is worth rostering for as long as he holds his current role.
