Top Waiver Wire Adds for Weeks 18 and 19

Hello Fantasy Basketball People! We are already past the NBA trade deadline and the NBA All-Star is coming up next but before we enjoy the break, let us prepare for the upcoming weeks 18 and 19. If you want the best waiver wire options, you’ve gotten to the right place. We will give you a list of free agent players you need during weeks 18-19. Most suggestions can be found in at least 50% of Yahoo fantasy basketball leagues.

  1. Mitchell Robinson (21% owned) – In the last 10 games, Mitchell Robinson is the top 74 player in standard 9-category leagues. He only averaged 8.2 points and 5.3 rebounds but his block rate and solid FG percentage are sufficient to put him inside top 100 during that period. The New York Knicks will play the best schedule in the combined weeks ahead and Mitch is a nice stream and could be useful in a lot of leagues. Deandre Jordan is still in town but Robinson thrives in limited minutes and is worthy of a speculative add for the rest of the season in case the Knicks finally unleash him.
  2. Delon Wright (11% owned) – The 20th overall pick of the 2015 NBA draft could finally be given an opportunity to showcase his skills. Delon Wright was just traded to the Memphis Grizzlies as part of the Marc Gasol and Jonas Valanciunas swap. He will join Mike Conley, Justin Holiday and recently acquired Avery Bradley in what looks like a crowded backcourt. Wright may or may not start but he can play both guard positions and he is a nice per-minute fantasy player. IMHO, Wright is a far better player than Bradley and Holiday. Delon is worthy of a speculative add, as he has a top 80 upside in standard 9-category leagues.
  3. Kenrich Williams (27% owned) – In the last 6 games, Kenrich Williams is averaging 13.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.5 3-pointers and 1.2 blocks per game. He is the top 67 player in standard 9-category leagues in that span. Kenrich started the last 3 games in lieu of E’twaun Moore, and may soon lose that starting spot, but Kenrich is worthy of a flier in case the Pelicans maximize his potential down the line. The New Orleans Pelicans has a tough schedule in the coming combined weeks with just the LAL as their easy match, but Kenrich Williams is still projected to have a top 74 value so i’ll look at him in deep leagues right now.
  4. Maxi Kleber (13% owned) – In the last 4 games as a starter, Maxi Kleber is averaging 9.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 3-pointers and 1.0 block per game. He is outside top 100 of standard 9-category leagues in that period. We are still waiting for his breakout because the opportunity is here after the Mavericks got rid of Deandre Jordan and Harrison Barnes. Kristaps Porzingis is still recovering as well, so tons of minutes are up for grabs in the PF/C spot. I will consider Kleber in deep leagues because of his ability to rack up treys and blocks. He has a top 59 value in the upcoming weeks and he is worthy of a speculative add for the rest of the season as well.
  5. Dwight Powell (23% owned) – Just like Maxi Kleber (see item #4 above), Dwight Powell looks like a trade deadline winner too. In the last 4 games as a backup PF/C, Powell is averaging 10.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 3-pointer, 1.0 steal and 1.3 blocks per game while shooting a pretty solid 53.8% from the field and 90.0% from the line. He is the top 54 player in standard 9-category leagues in that stretch. He only logged 23.9 minutes per game during that span but he is a per minute stud. He is projected with a top 90 value in the upcoming weeks and i would look for Powell in deep H2H and Roto leagues where I need low-end big man numbers and solid percentages.
  6. Ivan Rabb (29% owned) – Ivan Rabb averages 17.0 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks in the last two games as a starter, shooting 77.8 percent from the field. That was good in the standard 9-category leagues for a top 36 ranking. He may not play a bunch of minutes like the past two games once Jonas Valanciunas is activated but Rabb is still a nice stream for the upcoming weeks where he is projected with a top 88 value. He is worthy of a flier too for the rest of the season because he is capable of bringing solid big man numbers when given opportunity. Ivan Rabb averaged 11.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.5 blocks in the final 4 games of the 17-18 NBA season in which he was a starter, while shooting 55.9% from the field and 80.0% from the line. In that period, he was the top 39 player in standard leagues of 9 categories.

New York Knicks

Top Waiver Wire Adds for Week 17

Hello Fantasy Basketball World! The NBA All-Star is just around the corner but before we enjoy the break, let us prepare for the upcoming week 17. If you want the best waiver wire options, you’ve gotten to the right place. We will give you a list of free agent players you need during week 17. Most suggestions can be found in at least 50% of Yahoo fantasy basketball leagues.

Photo by Christian Petersen
  1. Mikal Bridges (27% owned) – Mikal Bridges is slowly and quietly getting there. In the last 3 months he is the top 94 player in standard 9-category leagues. Over the last 2 months he is top 60, last month he is top 44 and in the last 2 games he is top 21. In his last 14 games, he is averaging 8.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.4 3-pointers, and 0.9 block per game while shooting 49.4% from the field and 83.3% from the line. The Phoenix Suns will have a difficult schedule next week due to matches with HOU, UTA and GSW but Bridges is still projected with a top 32 value. I will add Bridges in deep leagues especially if i need those treys and steals.
  2. Thomas Bryant (42% owned) – Since starting at Center spot for the Washington Wizards, Thomas Bryant is averaging 10.1 points and 6.3 rebounds while shooting 65.8% from the field and 80.6% from the line. He is the top 87 player in standard 9-category leagues in that stretch. The Wizards will play the best schedule next week with match-ups against ATL, CLE and CHI. Thomas Bryant has a projected value of top 36 in week 17 because of the easy schedule. He is a nice stream next week and if coach Brooks won’t limit his minutes he can provide fantasy owners with solid big man numbers.
  3. Kevin Huerter (27% owned) – The return of both Taurean Prince and Kent Bazemore didn’t really affect the value of Kevin Huerter. In his last 2 games, Kevin is averaging 12.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 3.5 3-pointers and 1.0 steal per game while shooting 47.4% from the field. He is the top 55 player in standard 9-category leagues during that span. Huerter is projected with a top 76 value next week with a slightly favorable schedule including matches with WAS and CHA. While Kevin is a nice stream next week, he is a strong ROS add as he may continue to log heavy minutes and can provide team managers with across the board stats.
  4. Maxi Kleber (8% owned) – The Dallas Mavericks just got overhauled, they sent Dennis Smith Jr., Wesley Matthews, and Deandre Jordan to the New York Knicks in exchange for Kristaps Porzingis (may not play this season), Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee. This means more opportunities for Maxi Kleber as the Mavericks are left with no big men. Kleber is top 83 in per 36 averages in standard 9-category leagues over the last 2 weeks with 10.4 points, 9.7 rebounds, 2.4 3-pointers, 1.0 steal and 1.8 blocks per 36 minutes. The Dallas Mavericks will only play 3 games in week 17 but Kleber is projected with a top 82 value in standard 9-cat. He is a nice stream in standard leagues and worthy of a speculative add for the rest of the season.
  5. Dwight Powell (28% owned) – Another player from the Dallas Mavericks that you may want to consider is Dwight Powell. (see item #4 above). Dwight’s per 36 minute averages this year are delightful. He is averaging 18.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.3 blocks per 36 minutes. For a big man, his per 36 percentages are pretty good too at 58.3% FG/36 and 73.8% FT/36. Like Kleber, Powell is worthy of a speculative add in standard leagues not only in week 17 but even beyond and let’s see if coach Carlisle will eventually unleash him.

Week 17 Guide:

9 NBA teams playing 4 games:

Washington Wizards, Indiana Pacers, Orlando Magic, Atlanta Hawks, Sacramento Kings, Milwaukee Bucks, New Orleans Pelicans, San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns

20 NBA teams playing 3 games:

Toronto Raptors, Charlotte Hornets, Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets, Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, Brooklyn Nets, Miami Heat, Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trail Blazers, Los Angeles Clippers, Philadelphia 76ers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks

1 NBA team playing 2 games:

Utah Jazz

Here are some of the other possible free agents to consider in week 17:

With 4 games:

  1. Jeff Green (33% owned) – easy week 17 schedule, top 74 value
  2. Richaun Holmes (16% owned) – top 84 value in week 17
  3. D.J. Augustin (42% owned) – stream if you need boosts in assists and FT%
  4. Jonathan Isaac (54% owned) – is hot right now, if he was dropped in your league, grab him

With 3 games:

  1. Marcus Smart (42% owned) – very useful if you need treys, assists and steals, top 92 value
  2. Cory Joseph (10% owned) –low end PG stats

Top Waiver Wire Adds for Week 16

Hello Fantasy Hoops Community! We’re already in the middle of the season and Week 16 is about to start. If you want the best waiver wire options, you’ve gotten to the right place. We will give you a list of free agent players you need during week 16. Most suggestions can be found in at least 50% of Yahoo fantasy basketball leagues.

(Photo by Andy Lyons)
  1. Jamychal Green (29% owned) – After a 2-game slump, Jamychal Green is back. In the last 2 games, he is averaging 14.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal, 1.0 block and 1.5 3-pointers while shooting 47.4% from the field and 87.5% from the line. He also played an average of 28.7 minutes per game and was ranked 93 in standard 9-category leagues in that period. The Memphis Grizzlies will play the best schedule in week 16 with matches against DEN, MIN, CHA, and NYK. Green could be traded before the deadline and that could affect his value, but as long as he’s in Memphis and plays close to 30 minutes, he will be a nice stream especially in a favorable schedule like in week 16.
  2. Marcus Smart (38% owned) – Marcus Smart has been valuable in standard 9-category leagues since he was relegated as a starter. He has averaged 9.0 points, 2.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.8 3-pointers per game in 27 games from November 26, 2018 to date. These numbers may not look awesome to you, but it was enough to place him in the top 53 of the 9-cat rankings during that period. He was ranked 45 in punt FG build and even higher at 33 in punt points. The Boston Celtics has the 2nd best schedule in week 16 wherein they will play BKN, CHA, NYK and OKC. If I need some cheap stats other than points and FG% next week, I’ll look for Marcus Smart in deep leagues.
  3. Tyreke Evans (66% owned) – Victor Oladipo suffered a ruptured quadriceps tendon in his right knee during a game against the Raptors, and it ended his 2018-2019 NBA season. Tyreke Evans will now be tasked to carry the load left by the Pacers All-Star Guard. In the last 7 games, Evans is averaging 14.9 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.6 steal, and 1.4 3-pointers while playing only 19.8 minutes per game. He is already named as the starter to replace Oladipo and we could see a significant bump in his usage rate. He has been up and down this season but we saw him improved since the start of the year. Tyreke Evans is worthy of a speculative add and let’s see if he is able to take advantage of the opportunity to shine as the starting guard of the Indiana Pacers.
  4. Shabazz Napier (6% owned) – Shabazz Napier played 28.7 minutes as the backup point guard of the Brooklyn Nets in their last game vs the New York Knicks. He scored 18 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 1 3-pointer. He shot badly from the field at 23.1% but faired better from the line at 91.7% with 12 Free Throw Attempts. With Spencer Dinwiddie out for 4-6 weeks, Napier can be valuable as a stream in deep leagues especially in week 16 where he is projected to have a top 88 value due to a favorable schedule.
  5. Mitchell Robinson (15% owned) – Mitchell Robinson is the top 81 player in standard 9-category leagues in the last 4 games. In that span he has more value than Domantas Sabonis, Hassan Whiteside and Andre Drummond. In week 16, the New York Knicks will play 4 games. They have the hardest schedule next week, because they will face DAL, BOS and MEM. But don’t sleep on Robinson because he has a lot of upside despite playing with limited minutes. He is projected to have a top 44 value in week 16 and i will add him in deep leagues where i need a boost in FG% and blocks.

Week 16 Guide:

9 NBA teams playing 4 games:

Memphis Grizzlies, Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Clippers, Atlanta Hawks, Denver Nuggets, Charlotte Hornets, Indiana Pacers, Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks

15 NBA teams playing 3 games:

San Antonio Spurs, Utah Jazz, Philadelphia 76ers, Dallas Mavericks, Washington Wizards, Chicago Bulls,  Miami Heat, Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers, New Orleans Hornets, Orlando Magic, Milwaukee Bucks, Oklahoma City Thunder

5 NBA teams playing 2 games:

Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Cleveland Cavaliers, Toronto Raptors, Minnesota Timberwolves

1 NBA teams playing 1 game:

Portland Trail Blazers

Here are some of the other possible free agents to consider in week 16:

With 4 games:

  1. Jeremy Lin (10% owned) – projected with top 88 value in 9-cat next week, assists and FT% streamer
  2. Cory Joseph (14% owned) – projected with top 87 value in 9-cat next week, low end PG stats

Stats are based on standard 9cat H2H. Please also take note that I made this article before the 5 game slate of January 26, 2019 NBA Sched.

Top Waiver Wire Adds for Week 15

Hello Fantasy Basketball Junkies! We’re already halfway through the season and Week 15 is starting. If you want the best waiver wire options, you’ve reached the right place. We will give you a list of free agent players you need during week 15. Most suggestions can be found in at least 50% of Yahoo fantasy basketball leagues.

  1. Justin Holiday (33% owned) – Justin Holiday has an average of 8.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 3.3 steals and 1.3 3-pointers per game in the last three games. At that time, he was ranked 65th in the standard 9-category H2H as a fill- in starter for injured Kyle Anderson. The 3.3 steals rate is unsustainable and the 37.5% FG percentage is appalling, but I am still looking for Justin Holiday in week 15. He has the opportunity to contribute in threes and steals because of a favorable schedule. The Memphis Grizzlies will play four games, including easy matches against NOR, CHA and SAC.
  2. Bobby Portis (45% owned) – Bobby Portis has averaged 15.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 3-pointers per game in the last 2 games, shooting 48.0% from the field and 80.0% from the line. This was good for a top 110 ranking in the standard 9-category leagues and top 91 in punt blocks build. The Chicago Bulls will need to deploy Bobby Portis because Wendell Carter Jr. will likely be out for the remainder of the season. Even though Portis is more valuable in points leagues, he can also contribute in 9-category leagues. He can be a cheap source of points, threes and rebounds without your percentages being hurt. With favorable matches against CLE(2x) and ATL, the Chicago Bulls has the best schedule in week 15.
  3. Kenneth Faried (33% owned) – The Manimal is back! The former first round pick of the Denver Nuggets was recently waived by the Brooklyn Nets and will join the Houston Rockets to fill the enormous void left by the injured Clint Capela. Due to the scarcity of big men, the veteran forward will probably log heavy minutes in PF/C position and can be a good source of points, rebounds and FG%. Capela will miss a lot of time, and Faried is worthy of a speculative add. Due to a favorable schedule, he is projected to have a top 88 value in week 15.
  4. Jonathan Isaac (44% owned) – The season of Jonathan Isaac is a bit disappointing so far. During the pre-season, he had so much hype that he was drafted in many leagues early. At present, he is outside the top 100 of 9-category rankings with very dismal averages of 7.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 0.7 3-pointer, 0.7 steal and 1.0 block per game. I am still holding Isaac in deep leagues and the upcoming week 15 can be a chance for Isaac to redeem himself especially if Aaron Gordon will be out. He is projected with a top 59 value because of a favorable Orlando Magic schedule. Isaac still has a lot of upside to be ignored in deep leagues. This week 15, I will deploy him and hope that he will deliver the 1-1-1 cat we expected from him.
  5. D.J. Augustin (42% owned) –D.J. Augustin recently had 3 good games in a row wherein he averaged 14.7 points, 2.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 2.0 3-pointers while shooting 60.0% from the field. In that span, he actually had more value than Dennis Schroder, Malcolm Brogdon and Devin Booker in standard 9-category rankings. Augustin is inconsistent and doesn’t contribute in the defensive end. But he can help owners who are looking for 3-pointers and assists in week 15. Due to a favorable schedule that includes matches against ATL and WAS, he is projected to have top 89 value in the coming week.

Week 15 Guide:

18 NBA teams playing 4 games:

Chicago Bulls, Memphis Grizzlies, Oklahoma City Thunder, Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Portland Trail Blazers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Utah Jazz, Phoenix Suns, Toronto Raptors, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks, Minnesota Timberwolves, Washington Wizards, Sacramento Kings, New Orleans Pelicans

10 NBA teams playing 3 games:

Detroit Pistons, Brooklyn Nets, San Antonio Spurs, Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Atlanta Hawks, Golden State Warriors, Philadelphia 76ers, Denver Nuggets

2 NBA teams playing 2 games:

Charlotte Hornets, Indiana Pacers

Here are some of the other possible free agents to consider in week 15:

With 4 games:

  1. Jamychal Green (38% owned) – low end big man contributor
  2. Nerlens Noel (7% owned) – the defensive stats are gem even in limited minutes
  3. Bam Adebayo (33% owned) – the defensive stats and the out-of-position dimes are nice
  4. Moe Harkless (3% owned) – he should stay healthy
  5. Jae Crowder (36% owned) – needs to be consistent because the coach loves him
  6. Mikal Bridges (25% owned) – threes and steals
  7. Patrick Beverley (16% owned) –short term value while Gallo and Lou Will is out

With 3 games:

  1. Ivica Zubac (28% owned) – still in a timeshare, just a speculative add

Stats are based on standard 9cat H2H. Please also take note that I made this article before the 11 game slate of January 21, 2019 NBA Sched.

Top Waiver Wire Adds for Week 14

Hello Fantasy Basketball Junkies! We’re already half way through the season and Week 14 is nearly here. If you want the top waiver wire options, you’ve come to the right place. In this piece, we’ll give you a list of free-agent players you need in week 14. The majority of suggestions can be found in at least 50% of Yahoo fantasy basketball leagues.

Photo: John Amis
  1. DeAnthony Melton (8% owned) – DeAnthony Melton is averaging a pretty solid 2.3 steals and 1.0 block per game in the last 8 games. He doesn’t score much, but the defensive stats are sufficient to make him relevant in 9-category leagues. In that period, he is ranked 85 in standard 9-cat H2H. In fact, Melton had more value than Jamal Murray, Zach Lavine and Kemba Walker in 9-cat in that 8-game stretch. The Phoenix Suns is playing four games on week 14. They have tough matches with IND and POR and two favorable matches with CHA and MIN. Melton is a good stream for the next week and a nice speculative add for the rest of the season, as the Suns will soon be in a tanking mode.
  2. Richaun Holmes (27% owned) – Richaun Holmes remains outstanding this season in terms of per 36-minute averages. He is ranked 15 this season, ranked 11 last month and top 4 last week with averages of 19.6 points per 36, 7.5 rebounds per 36, 4.6 assists per 36, 2.9 steals per 36 and 2.3 blocks per 36. Like Melton (see item above), Holmes is a nice stream in week 14 because of the Suns schedule. He is also a good speculative add for the rest of the season. (Tanking Suns)
  3. Kevin Huerter (20% owned) – Kevin Huerter is the top 6 player in standard 9-category H2H of the January 11 NBA slate. His per 36-minute averages this season is actually not really good but it has already improved from rank 281 to 130 over the past week. The Atlanta Hawks will only play 2 games next week and that’s a pretty bad fantasy schedule, but I’m going to add Huerter because he’s a long- term pickup. Coach Lloyd Pierce spoke a lot about him recently and described him as a very good player. There’s no sign that he’s slowing down and Huerter ‘s just getting better.
  4. Reggie Bullock (24% owned) – Reggie Bullock still remains a 3-point expert. He has an average of 3.3 3-pointers per game in the last 14 games and he actually made more treys than J.J. Redick, Bradley Beal and Damian Lillard in that span. However, in the same period, he was only ranked 123 in standard 9-category H2H leagues. The Detroit Pistons play 4 games in week 14 and the owners of the deep leagues who are looking for treys might consider adding Bullock to their lineups. Due to a favorable schedule, He is projected to have a top 65 value in 9-cat for next week.
  5. Marcus Smart (18% owned) – If Reggie Bullock is a 3-point specialist (see item above) Marcus Smart is a steals specialist. His last match against the Miami Heat ended his 25-game streak of at least 1 steal per game. Marcus Smart has an average of 2.2 steals per game from November 17, 2018 to January 9, 2019. He also had an average of 8.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.6 3-pointers per game during this period. He ranked 50th in standard 9-category H2H leagues in that range and 40th in punt FG% build. Deep league owners in particular with punt FG% lineups may want to see Marcus Smart in week 14. Due to favorable matches, He is projected to be at the top 53 in the coming week.
  6. Bryn Forbes (35% owned) – Bryn Forbes is currently having a 12-game streak of at least 1 3-pointer per game. Unlike Reggie Bullock (see item above), Forbes is inside top 100 of standard 9-category H2H rankings. He is averaging 14.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.8 steal and 2.8 3-pointers per game while shooting an outstanding 50.8% from the field and 93.3% from the line in the last 12 games. These numbers are enough to put him at top 67 in 9-cat. The San Antonio Spurs will play 4 games in week 14. They have the best schedule next week which includes easy match-ups against CHA, MIN and LAC. If i were to choose between Bullock and Forbes as a stream next week, i will go with Forbes.

Week 14 Guide:

8 NBA teams playing 4 games:

San Antonio Spurs, Charlotte Hornets, Indiana Pacers, Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Clippers, Detroit Pistons, Boston Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies

18 NBA teams playing 3 games:

Portland Trail Blazers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Denver Nuggets, Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings, Utah Jazz, Miami Heat, New Orleans Hornets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, Chicago Bulls, Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets, Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Brooklyn Nets, Toronto Raptors

2 NBA teams playing 2 games:

Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks

2 NBA teams playing 1 game:

Washington Wizards, New York Knicks

Here are some of the other possible free agents to consider in week 14:

With 4 games:

  1. Derrick White (55% owned) – probably already owned in your league, if he is available grab him
  2. Marvin Williams (58% owned) – also probably already owned in your league, if he is available i will stream him in week 14 due to a nice schedule

Stats are based on standard 9cat H2H. Please also take note that I made this article before the 8 game slate of January 12, 2019 NBA Sched.

  1. T.J. McConnell (7% owned) – In the last 3 games, T.J. McConnell is averaging 10.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.3 steals while shooting an outstanding 65.0% from the field. In that period, he was ranked 92 in standard 9-category H2H. In that same 3-game stretch McConnell actually had more value than Trae Young, Damian Lillard and Mike Conley in 9-cat. The Philadelphia 76ers has the best schedule in week 13 because of 4 favorable match-ups against WAS (back-to-back), ATL and NYK. T.J. McConnell is a nice stream next week for owners in deep leagues looking for some assists and steals.
  2. Moe Harkless (9% owned) – Moe Harkless is rejuvenated. In his last 4 games he is averaging 8.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 2.3 blocks per game. In that stretch, he is top 34 in standard 9-category H2H and top 22 in punt assists. The Portland Trail Blazers will play 4 games in week 13 with 3 favorable match-ups versus NYK, CHI and CHA. Their lone tough match-up next week is against DEN. Moe Harkless is projected at top 70 value next week due to a nice schedule and i will add/stream him in deep leagues for his rebounds, steals and blocks.
  3. Derrick White (18% owned) – Derrick White is on a roll. In the last 4 games, he is averaging 15.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.5 steals, and 1.5 3-pointers per game while shooting 68.6% from the field and 75% from the line. He is the top 10 player in standard 9-category H2H in that 4-game span ahead of Paul George, Stephen Curry and Kemba Walker. The San Antonio Spurs has the least favorable schedule among the NBA teams playing 4 games in week 13. It includes tough match-ups against DET, MEM and back-to-back games versus OKC. But Derrick White is playing so much well to be ignored and he is a must-add in standard leagues right now.
  4. Wesley Matthews (38% owned) – Wesley Matthews is having a roller-coaster ride. After a strong start at the first 2 weeks of the season, he slowed down and he is outside the top 100 in standard 9-category H2H right now. The Dallas Mavericks will play 4 games in week 13 and they are one of the few teams with a nice schedule in the upcoming week. It includes favorable match-ups against LAL, PHO and MIN. Week 13 could be the best time to stream Matthews in deep leagues. He is projected with a value of top 90 next week and could be a big help for owners looking for cheap threes and steals.
  5. Reggie Bullock (18% owned) – In the last 10 games since returning from injury, Reggie Bullock is averaging a solid 3.3 3-pointers per game. But that’s just it. He is outside top 100 in that stretch due to his poor defensive stats. In week 13, the Detroit Pistons will play 4 games and favorable match-ups against SAS, LAL, SAC and LAC. While Bullock has not been really a force in 9-category leagues he can still be a good stream in deep leagues. He is projected with a top 90 value in the upcoming week because of a nice schedule. Feel free to take a flier on him and proceed with caution.

Week 13 Guide:

1 NBA team playing 5 games:

Denver Nuggets

16 NBA teams playing 3 games:

Here are some of the other possible free agents to consider in week 13:

With 5 games:

  1. Mason Plumlee (14% owned) – with a 5-game week, should be a solid stream if he will still play a lot of minutes.

With 4 games:

  1. D.J. Augustin  (44% owned) – not so favorable schedule in week 13 but can still be a low end PG stream
  2. Terrence Ross (30% owned) – same case with Augustin (schedule), can be a source of threes in deep leagues

Stats are based on standard 9cat H2H. Please also take note that I made this article before the 8 game slate of January 5, 2019 NBA Sched.

Top Waiver Wire Adds for Week 12

Hello Fantasy Hoops Junkies! Week 12 of Fantasy Basketball is almost here. If you are looking for the top waiver wire options you’ve come to the right place. In this piece we will provide a list of free-agent players you need to target in Week 12. Most of the suggestions are available in at least 50% of Yahoo fantasy basketball leagues

  1. Tyler Johnson (41% owned) – In the last 7 games, Tyler Johnson is averaging 15.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steal, and a solid 3.0 3-pointers per game, while shooting 45.3% from the field. In that stretch, the Miami Heat scored a 6-1 Win-Loss record and Johnson was ranked 98th in standard 9-category H2H. Among the teams playing 3 games in week 12, the Miami Heat has the most favorable schedule with match-ups against CLE, WAS and ATL. Tyler Johnson is a must add/stream in standard leagues while Goran Dragic is out.
  2. Tomas Satoransky (26% owned) – John Wall is out for the season. According to the latest Wojbomb, he is planning to undergo season-ending surgery on his left heel. The Washington Wizards will now have to rely on Tomas Satoransky to fill-in their starting point-guard duties once again. In 27 games last season from January 27 to March 29, Satoransky started for John Wall and he averaged 10.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.1 steals, 1.0 3-pointer and just 1.8 turnovers per game while shooting an outstanding 53.6% from the field and 90.0% from the line. In that period, Satoransky was ranked 51st in standard 9-category H2H. His ability to contribute across the board with nice percentages can help fantasy owners who are looking for a PG. Tomas Satoransky is a must-own in standard leagues.
  3. D.J. Augustin (37% owned) – D.J Augustin is hot. In the last 2 games, he is averaging 22.0 points, 6.0 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2.5 3-pointers per game while shooting 52.0% from the field and 92.9% from the line. Augustin has not been really consistent this season but the Orlando Magic has the best schedule in week 12. They will have 4 favorable match-ups against CHA, CHI, MIN and LAC. Deep league owners might want to consider Augustin in the upcoming week and see how it goes.
  4. Terrence Ross (31% owned) – Just like D.J Augustin, Terrence Ross is feeling it in the last 2 games. He is averaging 16.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 3.0 3-pointers per game while shooting 50.0% from the field. He will also play 4 games in week 12 and he has a top-48 projection due to a favorable schedule. I will add and stream Ross in deep leagues if i need a 3-point specialist next week.
  5. Josh Hart (48% owned) – In the last 4 games, Josh Hart is averaging 11.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.8 steals, and 2.3 3-pointers per game while shooting 47.1% from the field. In that period, he is top 42 in standard 9-category H2H. He played an average of 30.8 minutes per game lately and is getting his groove back. Rajon Rondo will be out again for a while with grade 3 finger sprain and the Los Angeles Lakers will need Josh Hart to step up and put up defensive stats at the wing. The Lakers will play 3 games in week 12 including easy match-ups against NYK and MIN. Josh Hart is a nice short term pick-up and worthy of a speculative add in standard leagues.
