I'd rather have Jamison even when Arenas returns

I've never been in love with Melo's overall fantasy stats
he's a scoring beast and boards decent
but but after that he doesn't do much else.

Im bias so get another opinion but in fantasy Im not a Melo fan in the H2H format

I completely agree. Melo is one-and-a-half dimensional. Jamison all the way.

I actually think Melo's 'overrated in fantasy' is a thing of the past and it's something I have used to get Melo for cheap in a number of leagues this year.

He's 26 pts per obviously, but both his FG and FT are huge benefits due to their volume. For a SF, he's a great rebounder. He has had months averaging 8 bds per and I think will be close to 8 per on the year...this is for a SF! His dimes are also above average at over 3.5 per, maybe it's a bit lower now. He also get's above avg stls at 1.2 per. and chips in 0.5 blks. He was also over 50% FG this past month. He's a real life beast and I think is a great fantasy player. If you eliminate TOs, he's like top 25 overall in fantasy. So it totally depends on your needs but I would rather have Melo.

Jamison gives no dimes, terrible FG on huge volume and pretty bad FT. He gives you the 3s for a PF, but offsets that with no blks from a spot that you need blks from.
