7 Games on the fantasy schedule on Saturday and only 6 games on the schedule for Sunday. There are some nice fantasy matchups Sunday including the Golden State/Sacramento game and the Phoenix/Washington game. Many new starters on Saturday including Beno Udrih, Josh Boone, Renaldon Balkman, Bobby Simmons and Josh Howard with his first game action of the season. Udrih is probably the only one worth a pickup. Josh Howard should be already owned in most leagues.
