Marcus Camby • Denver Nuggets
Though averaging only 27.3 minutes, Camby has made the most of his playing time, and more importantly, has appeared in 40 of the Nugs' 44 games this season after missing more than 100 over the last two years. The 6-11 center doesn't put points on the board, but he ranks 12th in rebounding and sixth in blocks and has especially been an inside force of late, posting 10.1 rpg and 3.42 bpg in January.

Erick Dampier • Golden State Warriors
A fantasy afterthought coming into this season (8.2 ppg and 6.6 rpg in 2002-03), Dampier has come out of seemingly nowhere to average a double-double for the first time in his career and rank fourth in the league in rebounding. In addition, he is an efficient scorer, shooting a career-high .504 from the field (ninth in the NBA) and he has improved his shot-blocking as the season has progressed, posting 2.36 bpg in January.

Larry Hughes • Washington Wizards
The Wizards needed a scorer with both Jerry Stackhouse and Gilbert Arenas sidelined due to injuries, and they found one in the long-dormant Hughes. The 6-5 guard, often criticized as an underachiever, has kicked up his scoring average to a career-high 19.1 ppg. And although his field-goal shooting languishes below 40 percent, Hughes rebounds well from the guard spot and occasionally contributes steals and assists.

Andrei Kirilenko • Utah Jazz
With the retirement of John Stockton and the departure of Karl Malone, fantasy owners knew Kirilenko would step up for the Jazz, though perhaps not this dramatically. One of the top all-around performers in the NBA, Kirilenko doesn't only fill up the box scores with points and rebounds, but he is also third overall in both blocks and steals, the first player ever to rank among the top five in each category simultaneously.

Zach Randolph • Portland Trail Blazers
Like Kirilenko, Randolph had set high expectations coming into this season with his clutch performances during last year's playoffs, and like Kirilenko, he has exceeded all predictions of his success. With his minutes climbing from 16.9 mpg in 2002-03 to 39.5, Randolph ranks with the league's top 10 in both scoring (10th) and rebounding (fifth) and is one of only four players to average better than 20 points and 10 boards.

Michael Redd • Milwaukee Bucks
The departure of Sam Cassell via free agency completed the dismantling of Milwaukee's old big three and paved the way for Redd to make the leap to stardom. A deadeye shooter from downtown, the fourth-year guard ranks among the league's top 10 in scoring (seventh) and three-pointers made (eighth). Redd is also averaging career-highs in rebounds and assists.
