NBA Schedule Guide - Week 11

With NBA players earning their well-deserved rest on Christmas, this leaves us with no games to be played on Monday. So we have a six-day week on our hands and it will be the biggest challenge to field a full team - you guessed it - on Tuesday and Thursday with just five games apiece, this time followed closely by Sunday which will have six matches played.

Furthermore, due to no-game Monday, only two teams play four games, and both play on all three of these days, so we will have some heavy favorites to stream this week. But more on that later.

Here's the low-down:

Los Angeles Lakers

Baller Streaming Strategy for Week 11

With Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday having nine or ten games played, fantasy owners shouldn't have problems fielding a respectable team on those days. The trouble will most likely come on the other three days, so we will shift our focus on teams playing on those days.

With three teams playing on all of those days, and two of these three being the Lakers and the Blazers, the only teams with four games this week, it becomes obvious who will be the best streaming targets for Week 11. The third team that plays on all three days are the 76ers and we will take a look at their players as well.

After these three teams, we will give honorable mentions to players from the Thunder, the Celtics, the Warriors, the Rockets, the Bucks, the Knicks, and the Jazz, who all play on two of the three scarce days we've mentioned.
