Austin Reaves (SG, LAL) - Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 23

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues

ROSTERED IN: 27% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Salute Los Angeles Lakers starting forward Austin Reaves! Yessir, that's correct. Reaves has been so good (and injuries to his teammates so bad) that he's snatched a role as a starter and he's been on the starting five for the past two games the Lake Show has played through Friday.

An upcoming FA, you bet Reaves is about to fill his bag. But that's a story for another time. For what interests us fantasy GMs now and ROS, Reaves has turned into a must-add for nearly every GM in any type of league and whatever format it happens to run with.

Reaves was already great as a second-unit player, but he's been similarly good starting and getting nearly 40 MP per game in his last two games this week against Phoenix and OKC. He scored 25 to go with 11 dimes and 4 boards in the former and then had an 11-6-9 game in the latter.

The wing can do it all from the two to the four spots in the lineup and provides a lot (a lot) of scoring upside on low-volume shot attempts with unreasonable percentages.

He adds rebounds, is tasked with handling some of the creative parts of the gameplan adding dimes to his stat lines, is adept at visiting the charity stripe, and even on below-average usage rates he's still producing fantasy goodies like a mad man.
