About Trevor Crippen - RotoBaller

I live in Boston, but grew up in Washington state, where I picked up bad habits like rooting for the Mariners. Since the Sonics left Seattle, I've been having open auditions for my new favorite NBA team. So far I haven't found a bandwagon that feels right, outside of "whoever is playing against those thieves in Oklahoma City."

Trevor Crippen - RotoBaller has written 158 articles so far, you can find them below.

Aron Baynes (SAS, C/PF) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues ANALYSIS: The Spurs are my go-to team for efficiency, and their bench is full of usable efficient bundles of 15-20 minutes a game with occasional starts – from Marco Belinelli to Cory Joseph to Baynes.

Rodney Stuckey (IND, PG/SG) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Shallow Leagues ANALYSIS: Stuckey is one of the streakiest guys in the league, as evidenced by his scoring totals in recent games – 22, 24, 9, 9 and 16 in five games between November 26 and December 4. One thing Stuckey has always done consistently well, however, is drive to the... Read More

Dante Cunningham (Forward) - Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move: Short Term Add Analysis: Cunningham is a speculative short-term pick-up, as we don’t know the severity of the knee injury suffered by Ronny Turiaf on Wednesday night.  However, if Turiaf were to miss any amount of time with Nikola Pekovic already out, Dante would become one of the last men standing in the front court for the ‘Wolves...

Patrick Beverley (Guard) - Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues for Steals/Threes Analysis: If you’re just looking for steals and threes, Beverly can bring it, along with a few assists, though not much else.  What he brings is similar to PJ Tucker, as far as being a useful fantasy player who is underrated because of his scoring.  Tucker has got a...

Jodie Meeks (Guard) - Waiver Wire Pickup

DeMarre Carroll (Forward) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Add Immediately Analysis: DeMarre Carroll  – I don’t really think I need to say much about Carroll.  He’s been a top 20 fantasy player over the last month.  I’ll just file this in the “I can’t believe he’s still less than half-owned category.”  Whether it’s the great shooting (.567 since 1/13), the three pointers (2.0/game),...
