We're approaching Week 14's midpoint, and there will be a massive, 13-game slate on Wednesday to follow up Tuesday's minuscule, two-game offering. Some fantasy managers might realize that their Roto league teams falling in certain categories as the back half of the week approaches, and we've identified a few specialists that could help provide immediate support this week. 

Here are three category boosters worth considering adding to your roster in Week 14.

Blocks

Chris Boucher, C, TOR (55% rostered)

Boucher is averaging 26.7 minutes per game this month and has tallied 14 blocks over nine outings in 2022. Only Myles Turner, Robert Williams, and Jaren Jackson Jr. have more blocks in the new year. Boucher finished sixth in total blocks last season with 111, and more playing time will help him raise his fantasy value significantly.

3-point shooting/3-point percentage

Grayson Allen, G, MIL (36% rostered)

Fantasy managers are coming back around on Allen, as he seems to have powered through the slump that hit him in late December and early January. He's averaged 14 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists since returning from a four-game layoff in health and safety protocols. He's shooting just under 40 percent from deep on the season and is still on pace to set a career-high in points per game (12).

Rebounds

Kevon Looney, C, GSW (19% rostered)

Draymond Green is set to miss at least two more weeks with a calf injury, which benefits Looney. Looney's averaged 8.4 rebounds per game through eight appearances without Draymond this year. He's averaging 9.2 rebounds per contest in January, and only nine players have grabbed more boards so far in 2022. Looney is sure to contribute scoring and limited playmaking during Green's absence.
