BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of leagues ANALYSIS: Through the first 124 games of his NBA career, Kevon Looney had occupied a very limited roll (understandably so) for the star-studded Golden State Warriors, and last year he was called on for just 13.8 minutes per game.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: At first glance, buying stock in Equanimeous St. Brown would appear to be an unwise choice, even in deeper formats.

Bryn Forbes (PG, SA) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of leagues ANALYSIS: With such a different-look Spurs roster for the 2018 NBA campaign, it shouldn't be a huge surprise that certain players have seen a huge expansion in their on-court roles, and Bryn Forbes has exemplified this transition.
