Bruce Brown (SF, DEN) - Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 16

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues

ROSTERED IN: 29% of leagues

ANALYSIS: After starting three games in a row for the Nuggets, Bruce Brown went back to the pine in Saturday's matchup against Philly while getting to play a very limited 22 minutes through the game. It's the first time since January 5 that Brown has logged so few minutes, so we will have to monitor this development.

Of course, Brown was 1) returning from suffering inflammation in his knee and 2) getting back to the second unit anyway because of Michael Porter Jr.'s return to the starting five. That was the case from December 23 to January 20, though, and Brown was still great for fantasy purposes, so there's no real concern about this role reversal with Brown seemingly healthy and taking on the sixth-man role in Denver.

In January, Brown is averaging a fantastic 12-4-3-1-1 line. Just for context, two players are doing that over the full season: Joel Embiid and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Brown's full season to date is close to that line, though, with the wild card player (he's started games at PG, SG, and SF) averaging a season-long 11-4-3-1-0.7 stat line.

That combination, over the full season, is something only Brown along with seven other players have been able to keep doing through Saturday. The names are flashy, mind you: Bam, Tatum, Embiid, Kyrie, Mikal Bridges, Scottie Barnes, and Shai. Not bad company, one would say.

Oh, and BB is the only one reaching those numbers in fewer than 35 MPG (he's at just 29 MPG through 49 games played).
