Monte Morris (PG, DEN): Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of leagues ANALYSIS: Jamal Murray is out injured and it is not clear when we will see him back on a basketball court.

Donte DiVincenzo (SG, MIL): Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Milwaukee Bucks are the team of the season, yet no one seems to be aware of it.

De'Anthony Melton (PG/SG, MEM): Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: When discussing the current/new iteration of the Memphis Grizzlies a bunch of names will come to the table way before De'Anthony Melton's: JA Morant, Jaren Jackson, Dillon Brooks, etc. But for someone on a clear second-plane role as Melton is playing in this...

Josh Hart (SG/SF, NO) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of leagues ANALYSIS: There are definitely a couple of strong reasons for why you might want to avoid Josh Hart, namely that his three-point shooting percentage has decreased steadily each month from 40% in October to 29.7% to kick off the new year and his usage...

Dorian Finney-Smith (SF/PF, DAL) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of leagues ANALYSIS: It has been a nice two-month stretch of leaps and bounds for Dorian Finney-Smith out of the Dallas Mavericks front court.

Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 13

The waiver wire is where leagues are won and lost. The draft is long past and now your rosters feel completely different if you are even moderately active. Players come and go due to poor performances and/or injury all the time. Staying on top of your needs is essential to winning matchups and grinding your... Read More

Deep Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds (Week 13)

If you haven't noticed, Zach LaVine has taken over these previous two weeks. This isn't to overshadow the production of DeMar DeRozan, Jaren Jackson Jr., or Kyrie Irving's spectacular return, but it should be noted that LaVine is helping owners in every category aside from rebounding and turnovers. The turnovers are a given seeing his... Read More

Bruce Brown (SG, DET): Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of leagues ANALYSIS: I don't even know what to make of these Pistons. I guess the best we can hope for is for them to move Andre Drummond as soon as possible, lock into the rebuilding mentality, trade any other still-valuable piece (Derrick Rose), and settle...

Troy Brown Jr. (SG/SF, WAS): Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In All Leagues OWNED IN: 41% of leagues ANALYSIS: When we make an ownership rate exception, you know something is going on.

Deep Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds (Week 12)

Every week we come back to the same problem. Why are these players doing well and my players doing so bad. Luckily, you aren't alone and there are always going to be surprises, especially at this point in the season. Last week, I touched on the importance of the All-Star break and how the best...

Jarrett Culver (PG/SG/SF, MIN) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of leagues ANALYSIS: Playing time can be difficult to come by for a rookie, even for a high draft pick who was as impressive in college as Jarrett Culver was. However, with the Minnesota Timberwolves as banged up as to see Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, and... Read More

Michael Porter Jr. (SF, DEN): Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In All Leagues OWNED IN: 37% of leagues ANALYSIS: Sometimes writing the waiver wire recommendations is difficult, but picking up Michael Porter Jr. and adding him to your fantasy basketball team is not a difficult recommendation to write about. The second-year forward just set his career-high in points twice in one week... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: If you are more than an average basketball fan and NBA follower, you surely know Shabazz Napier.

Christian Wood (PF/C, DET): Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of leagues ANALYSIS: A little over a month ago, Christian Wood kicked December off with a monster performance against San Antonio: 28 points and 10 rebounds to go with two assists, a steal, and a block on a 78.6 percent shooting night in which he logged a...

Deep Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds (Week 11)

Quite a few players have been making a name for themselves during late-December, so make sure you are taking advantage of injuries and ideal streamer plays. For example, Jordan McLaughlin of the Minnesota Timberwolves has already been assigned to the G-League, but that's still 19 points at the start of the week with little to... Read More

Deep Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds (Week 10)

We are officially in Week 10 which means I can start saying that the season is coming to end to help sell my picks. Not the smartest idea to out myself like that, but it's the truth. The earlier you can forget about the regular season and start focusing on playoffs the better. We will... Read More

Derrick Jones (SF/PF, MIA) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Heat forward Derrick Jones has been stuffing the stat sheet as one of the first players off the bench for the Heat the past few weeks. Over his past five games, he's hit seven threes while recording nine steals and four blocks... Read More

Bismack Biyombo (PF/C, CHA) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of leagues ANALYSIS: Charlotte Hornets power forward/center Bismack Biyombo has been posting some gaudy rebounding numbers the past few weeks and they can't be ignored by anyone in leagues of 12 teams or deeper. Biyombo grabbed a season-high 17 boards against the Pacers on December 15,... Read More

Chris Boucher (PF/C, TOR) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of leagues ANALYSIS: Toronto Raptors power forward/center Chris Boucher should be seeing a substantial increase in playing time with both Marc Gasol (hamstring) and Pascal Siakam (groin) out indefinitely. Boucher saw some extra run in November while Serge Ibaka was hurt and proved to have some solid... Read More

Donte DiVincenzo (SG, MIL) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of leagues ANALYSIS: Milwaukee Bucks shooting guard Donte Divincenzo has received some steady playing time this year, especially since the team lost Eric Bledsoe (leg) to a broken fibula. Bledsoe should be out at least another week, which makes DiVencenzo a fantastic short-term add, but he could... Read More

Jalen Brunson (PG, DAL) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In All Leagues OWNED IN: 37% of leagues ANALYSIS: It's not often that a team can replace a superstar point guard, Luka Doncic, with a two-time NCAA Champion, but that's exactly what the Dallas Mavericks are doing by inserting Jalen Brunson into it's starting lineup. The second-year point guard has been living... Read More

Deep Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds (Week 9)

Two things I wanted to address in this intro and they both revolve around the same narrative. The Suns have been pretty spectacular given they lost on of their better players early in the season, but that suspension is over and is going to immediately impact fantasy scoring. While Deandre Ayton controls the paint like... Read More

Deep Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds (Week 8)

Immediately upon Kyle Lowry's return to the starting lineup, Fred Vanvleet went down with an injury that looks like it will keep him out for at least two weeks. Since most people were concerned about how Lowry will impact VanVleet production, it's pretty clear now. Outside of the Raptors, there is one player that has... Read More

Ben McLemore (SG, HOU) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of leagues ANALYSIS: Ben McLemore? Ben McLemore! I thought McLemore's whole NBA career was over after he played just 19 games for the Kings last year, but he's been revitalized with the Rockets this season. McLemore's seen an increase in minutes over the last four games,... Read More

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.

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of leagues ANALYSIS: When the Rockets traded De'Anthony Melton to the Suns last year, I -- a Rockets fan -- was upset.

Deeper Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds (Week 7)

Not as exaggerated of an introduction this time around, but that doesn't change anything about this article. There will always be deep waiver picks that need to be picked up before the consensus figures out their value.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (SG/SF, DAL) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In All Leagues OWNED IN: 39% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Dallas Mavericks are the NBA's biggest surprise, and one of the biggest surprises in Dallas has been the emergence of Tim Hardaway Jr. as the team's third best player. Is that sustainable? Probably not. Is he worth a roster spot for now... Read More

Jarrett Culver (SG/SF, MIN) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of leagues ANALYSIS: Jarrett Culver was one of my favorite rookies heading into the season, but his first NBA campaign got off to a fairly slow start.

Marquese Chriss (PF/C, GSW) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of leagues ANALYSIS: Marquese Chriss has gone from draft bust to rotation piece, albeit on this terrible Golden State Warriors team.

Bismack Biyombo (C, CHA) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of leagues ANALYSIS: You may have missed the train to pick up Biyombo and have him be relevant in shallower leagues now that Cody Zeller is due to return, but don't let Saturday's stinker against the Bucks (no points and two rebounds in 10 minutes) make...
