Baller Streaming Strategy for Week 23

If there are any players from Golden State that get any playing time still left on your waiver wire - pick them up! NOW!

The Warriors have a five-game week including games on both Tuesday and Thursday, the two scarcest of days with six games apiece. Along with them, Charlotte, Indiana, and Sacramento all have four games next week and play on both these days, so their players are decent options as well. Atlanta and Minnesota also play on both Tuesday and Thursday, but only have one other game next week. We will take a glance at their guys as well.

Shallower League Add

Marvin Bagley III, PF, SAC, (72% Owned)-Strong Cats: FG%, REB, STL/BLK, PTS

The #2 overall pick from the previous draft is back from his injury and has played very well, scoring 14+ points in both games despite not eclipsing the 20-minute mark.

Bagley has really picked it up before his injury and is ranked just outside the top-50 in the previous month with averages of 18.3 PTS with 0.5 3PM on 48.7 FG% and 77.5 FT%, 8.7 REB, 1.2 AST, 0.8 STL, 0.8 BLK and 1.0 TO in 27 minutes per game. If he gets his playing time back up to around 30 minutes there is little doubt he will be the destroyer of fantasy dreams for his owners' rivals.

In the off chance he is still left on your waiver wire, I would suggest you go pick him up before your opponent does.

 

Deeper League Add

Frank Kaminsky, PF/C, CHA (8% Owned) - Strong Cats: 3PM, FT%, PTS, REB

Frank the Tank has came out of nowhere recently and is putting up some decent numbers in the last 14 days with averages 12.6 PTS with 1.9 3PM on 50.0 FG% and 82.4 FT%, with 4.4 REB, 1.3 AST, 0.0 STL, 0.1 BLK and 1.4 TO in 20 minutes per game.

He is not going to help you with blocks or steals, but his efficient shooting of late and those threes, points and boards can decide your next week's matchup.

With Cody Zeller also having some injury woes, Frank could pick up even more minutes and is worth a look in very deep leagues for his nice schedule next week.

 

Insanely Deep League Add

Andre Iguodala, SG/SF, GSW, (7% Owned) - Strong Cats: REB, AST, STL/BLK

Iggy is the pick purely because of the Warriors having a five-game week, and the fact that Kevin Durant is currently battling an injury, which would open even more space for him.

Igoudala fills every stat column and can be very useful for most fantasy teams. His season averages are 5.9 PTS with 0.8 3PM on 50.0 FT% and 59.4 FT%, 3.8 REB, 3.2 AST, 0.9 STL, 0.8 BLK and 0.7 TO in 24 minutes per outing. Such lines are what you can expect from him next week as well. Multiply that with five and that is a decent contribution to any fantasy team.

Just beware for a possible rest day on those back to backs. Andre is 35 years old, you know.

When Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and Larry Nance Jr. are all healthy, there isn't much room for Zizic.

But Tristan has been out for some time now, and with the Cavs officially out of playoff contention he certainly will not be rushed back. Larry has picked up a chest injury and did not return to Clevelands previous game. His status is still unclear but he could end up missing time. And Love has a long injury history as well so he might see his minutes reduced and an occasional rest day the rest of the way.

All this is wonderful news for Ante's minutes. With Marquese Chriss as his only other competition, he is in with a pretty good chance of getting an increased opportunity in this situation.

If you need some big-man stats at the beginning of the week, Zizic could prove quite helpful for all deep league teams.

 

Other Deep League Options for the Week

Andre Iguodala, SG/SF, GSW, (7% Owned) - Strong Cats: REB, AST, STL/BLK
Kevon Looney, PF/C, GSW, (4% Owned) - Strong Cats: BLK, REB, FG%

Tony Parker, PG, CHA, (2% Owned) - Strong Cats: AST, PTS
