Cedi Osman (SF/PF, CLE) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 24% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Cleveland Cavaliers third-year forward Cedi Osman has been playing some strong basketball lately. While he struggled on Saturday night, the five game stretch before that saw Osman play 31.5 minutes per night with averages of 14.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.6 blocks.

You don't love the rebound numbers for a forward, but he's scoring well while also providing strong steals numbers and making a pair of threes per contest, so there are definitely situations where you're going to get solid fantasy production out of Osman.

The other thing? The Cavaliers appear to finally be willing to explore a Kevin Love trade, a move that would clear up more minutes and usage for Osman. Keep an eye on that, as Love being gone could clear the path to Osman to consistently be a 30 minute per game player.

Even without that deal happening, Osman's got a solid role on this team and has seen his shot attempts rise over the past handful of games. He should be rostered in most leagues.
