Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds by NBA Position

ALLGUARDS - FORWARDS - CENTERS

 

Maxi Kleber (PF/C, DAL): Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 40% of leagues ANALYSIS: I think Maximilian Kleber's ownership is a little too high at least for standard, 12-team leagues. Other than that, though, it makes sense to find him at 40% in deeper tournaments and structures. Keep in mind this stat: Kleber is averaging 25... Read More

Coby White (PG, CHI): Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of leagues ANALYSIS: While Coby White hasn't started a single game for the Bulls in his rookie season, at least he's taking baby steps toward improving his overall game steadily. Chicago has been giving White more chances lately by ramping up his minutes (under 24... Read More

Jae Crowder (SF/PF, MIA): Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 42% of leagues ANALYSIS: I'm making an exception here going over the 40% ownership threshold, but Jae Crowder totally merits it. The chances are lower you will find him still available for free in your league, sure, but if you do you shouldn't hesitate to add him... Read More

Kent Bazemore (SG/SF, SAC): Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of leagues ANALYSIS: I'm starting to think everybody around Sacramento performs better off the bench than in a starter role. The Kings moved Buddy Hield to the pine and he's thrived since. Back in late January they acquired Kent Bazemore from Portland, sit him on the... Read More

Josh Hart (SG/SF, NO): Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 37% of leagues ANALYSIS: We're bordering the 40% ownership rate with Josh Hart and for good reason. While only a top-65 player on the season, Hart's past month of play has been so good that he's ranking as a top-35 performer in the past 30 days. In... Read More

De'Andre Hunter (SF, ATL): Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of leagues ANALYSIS: I wonder if De'Andre Hunter is the most overlooked starter going under the radar in fantasy leagues these days... Must be close if it's not the case. Owned in less than a fourth of all Yahoo leagues, Hunter has started all but two... Read More

PJ Washington (SF/PF, CHA): Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 39% of leagues ANALYSIS: There are overlooked rookies, and then there is PJ Washington. The first-year player of Charlotte is one of the best newcomers of the season, has played 49 games and started 48 of them at the time of this writing while putting up... Read More

Bruce Brown (SG, DET): Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of leagues ANALYSIS: A week. It's been a week already since the All-Star game took place yet most fantasy owners have yet to get back on track to complete their daily fantasy-duties. How do I know? Well, you just have to take a look at Bruce... Read More

Daniel Theis (PF/C, BOS): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 39% of leagues ANALYSIS: Though undersized for the center position, Daniel Theis has been consistent and a chief rotation player for the Boston Celtics this season. The Germany native has started in 47 of 54 games this season, and has been averaging 8.3 points and 6.2 rebounds... Read More

Juancho Hernangomez (SF/PF, MIN): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of leagues ANALYSIS: Traded from the Nuggets at the trade deadline, Juancho Hernangomez is so far proving he’s more than a bench piece in Minnesota. The 2016 pick has scored in double digits in all three of the games he has played for the Wolves, notching... Read More

Seth Curry (PG/SG, DAL): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of leagues ANALYSIS: Dallas Mavericks shooting guard Seth Curry is quietly making some noise this season. The Duke product is nearly averaging a career-high 11.5 points per game, while playing 23.6 minutes per game. Curry has experienced the most success with Dallas in his four-year career,... Read More

Dewayne Dedmon (C, ATL): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED In: 45% of leagues After only a half-season with Sacramento, center Dewayne Dedmon is back with the Atlanta Hawks for his second stint with the team. The veteran started only 10 games for the Kings, but played in 34. It’s fair to state that the young team was... Read More

5 days ago

Malik Monk (PG/SG, CHA): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of leagues ANALYSIS: I already told you to go get Malik Monk exactly two weeks ago as we were just entering the month of February. Back then, Monk was owned in just 9% of Yahoo leagues. Today, Monk is owned in less than twice that percentage.... Read More

Thon Maker (PF/C, DET): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: This season marks the fourth anniversary of Thon Maker being a professional basketball player. He will turn just 23 years old in a couple of weeks. Yet it feels it's been ages since he entered the league. After hitting the jackpot by selecting... Read More

Furkan Korkmaz (SG, PHI): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: That heat you feel? It's the Furkan Korkmaz Fever catching up with you. If you don't know much about Korkmaz, I won't blame you. It's only been a week, after all, but what a seven-day run for the last Turkish sensation before reaching the... Read More

Trevor Ariza (SG/SF, POR): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of leagues ANALYSIS: Did you know Ariza was still an NBA player when the season started and up to his trade to Portland? Chances are you didn't if you were not a very very hardcore NBA fan. Even in a talent-barred team such as Sacramento and... Read More

Moritz Wagner (PF/C, WAS): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of leagues ANALYSIS: Washington Wizards power forward/center Moritz Wagner returned to action on February 3rd after missing nearly two months with a left ankle sprain. Since his return, he's been slowly eased back into the rotation. He saw over 24 minutes in two straight games this... Read More

Jae Crowder (SF/PF, MIA): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 39% of leagues ANALYSIS: When the Memphis Grizzlies traded Andre Iguodala to the Miami Heat, the south beach team also took on Jae Crowder as salary relief for the Grizz. Well, that salary relief is turning in some solid performances for his new club as Jae Crowder... Read More

Jabari Parker (SF/PF, SAC): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of leagues ANALYSIS: Sacramento Kings small forward/power forward Jabari Parker (shoulder) has been out since early January but appears to be close to making his return. Parker was traded from the Hawks to the Kings prior to the trade deadline. With the news that the Kings... Read More

Naz Reid (C, MIN): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of leagues ANALYSIS: Minnesota Timberwolves center Naz Reid has seen extended playing time in the past week and a half. With Andrew Wiggins and Robert Covington out of the picture, Reid has been utilized as one of the first big men off the bench for the... Read More

Gary Trent Jr. (SG, POR): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: Portland Trail Blazers guard Gary Trent Jr. has been confined to a small bench role most of the season and limited to a deep-league, three-point specialist by making 1.5 threes per game on 40.4 percent shooting. However, over his last 13 games, Trent has... Read More

1 week ago

James Johnson (PF/SF, MIN): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of leagues ANALYSIS: James Johnson has barely had a cup of coffee with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The 11-year journeyman has suited up only thrice for Minny, as he was acquired via trade on Feb. 6, just over a week ago. But, his three game sample size... Read More

1 week ago

Nicolo Melli (PF, NO): Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of leagues ANALYSIS: Nicolo Melli, a 29-year-old rookie from Italy, has solidifed his place as a member of the New Orleans Pelicans' rotation. He is averaging 15.8 minutes per contest this season and 24.5 over his last four outings. Melli is receiving consistent playing time for... Read More

Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 17/18

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 17/18)

This is going to be a very short week for standard fantasy leagues, but luckily every team is going to play at least once before the All-Star Break starts. If you are looking to make trades over this time, the earlier the better. The longer you wait, the more leverage you lose when it comes... Read More

Josh Okogie (SG/SF, MIN): Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 31% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Timberwolves have changed more than half of the players in their roster during the past few days leading up to the trade deadline. The team is barely recognizable and one of his stars during the past five seasons, Andrew Wiggins, has left... Read More

2 weeks ago

Jordan Clarkson (PG/SG, UTA): Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of leagues ANALYSIS: If you read our Waiver Wire blurbs weekly then you know I wrote about Malik Monk last weekend. It was surprising to find Monk with a very low ownership rate, but seeing Clarkson rostered in just 32% of Yahoo leagues is truly insane.... Read More

2 weeks ago

Glenn Robinson III (SG/SF, PHI): Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of leagues ANALYSIS: When it comes to recently traded players it's always hard to assess the value they will have in their new surroundings. Enter Glenn Robinson III, who is moving from a 31+ minutes starting role to a championship contender in which he will ride... Read More

Marquese Chriss (PF/C, GS): Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of leagues ANALYSIS: Talk about an impactful trade! The Warriors flipped D'Angelo Russell for Andrew Wiggins and the winner was... Marquese Chriss!? Well, not directly, but at least in his last game he definitely showed what he's capable of by dropping 26 points on the Lakers... Read More

Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 16

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.

Deep Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds (Week 16)

The Portland Trail Blazers have had an interesting season to say the least. Not only have they been carried by Damian Lillard for the past month or so, but if it weren't for players like C.J. McCollum, Carmelo Anthony, Rodney Hood, and a few others stepping up at just the right time, this explosion from... Read More

Michael Carter-Williams (PG, ORL): Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: Let's make something clear before we keep discussing MCW: this is a bench player, full stop. Michael Carter-Williams should only be a target for fantasy owners playing deep leagues given his playing time (around 17 minutes per game) and a limited role on... Read More

3 weeks ago

Danuel House Jr. (SG/SF, HOU): Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 25% of leagues ANALYSIS: It makes sense to find House rostered in one out of every four leagues at the very least. Not only has he been putting on a show lately, but Danuel House Jr. has actually been a good player and top-80 player on the full... Read More

3 weeks ago

Mattise Thybulle (SG/SF, PHI): Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of leagues ANALYSIS: In the last bunch of WW pickups before the trade deadline goes past us, Mattise Thybulle might be one of the most interesting players out there not rostered in that many leagues. Philadelphia looks bad as an on-paper contender. The Sixers will need to... Read More

3 weeks ago

Malik Monk (PG/SG, CHA): Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: For someone playing about 20 minutes nightly, it is surprising that only 9% of fantasy owners out there are rostering Malik Monk. No matter the production, Monk is a minute-eater every game the Hornets play and those have only ramped up lately: in... Read More

3 weeks ago


Jakob Poeltl (C, SA): Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of leagues ANALYSIS: I'm sorry for my friends because they must be tired of me telling them to go pick up Jakob Poeltl from waivers. Seriously, I've been reminding them for days now. Just in case you don't know Poeltl, he's the most Spursian of Spurs Poster... Read More

Austin Rivers (PG/SG, HOU): Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Houston is trying to find help everywhere these days. Austin Rivers just happens to be another guy providing it, and not just in small amounts. It always amazes me how players that get a lot of minutes of playing time are rostered and owned...

Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 15

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.

Deeper Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds (Week 15)

This is hard to write so I'll do my best. There's a cloud looming over the entire NBA community, and I only wish the impact was that minimal. There's nothing that can be said to make it better and it seems like the more we talk about it, the sadder the whole situation becomes. Through... Read More

Svi Mykhailiuk (SG, DET): Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: Talk about a walking bucket. Who would have thought? The Pistons are on the verge of a full rebuilding effort and Svi might be one of the key pieces going forward. At least that is what he's showing these days at just 22... Read More
