Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds by NBA Position

ALL - GUARDS - 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Daniel Theis (PF/C, BOS): Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of leagues ANALYSIS: Remember when Joel Anthony was the unsuspected starting center of The Heatles back in the day? Well, that is Daniel Theis, only in Boston and much better. Theis has started in all games he's played except one (the first of the season), and... Read More

Marquese Chriss (PF/C, GSW): Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: After three seasons and a half in the league, it is fair to say Marquese Chriss has been a bust. He is a former 8th-overall draftee but he has far from lived up to the expectations, though the current version of Chriss is... Read More

Trevor Ariza (SG/SF, POR): Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 31% of leagues ANALYSIS: Had I to tell, I'd say that Trevor Ariza's ownership will only go up and up during the next few days and weeks. Portland traded for the veteran just a few days ago and in his lone game with the franchise up to... Read More

Markieff Morris (PF/C, DET): Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of leagues ANALYSIS: Welcome to the ultimate what-if entry of this week's NBA waiver wire pickups! You might think we're a little bit crazy offering you advice on why you should pick Morris. It is not that Morris has been that bad, in fact, he's a valuable player considering... Read More

Deep Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Adds (Week 14)

The turnaround Marcus Smart has made not only on the court, but in the fantasy atmosphere has been one of the absorbing narratives of the season. There are very few owners willing to trade him, seeing how they most likely drafted him in a later rounds, and this is the first time over the past... Read More

Mike Muscala (PF/C, OKC) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of leagues ANALYSIS: From the surface, it would seem like you would be best advised to steer clear of Mike Muscala: he has largely shot poorly from long-distance this season, he is seeing his lowest volume of floor-time since 2015, and he appears to be securely...

Luke Kornet (PF/C, CHI) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of leagues ANALYSIS: Luke Kornet has made his living as a three-point shooting seven-footer for NBA teams with depleted or economical rosters so far in his career, and with the recent significant injuries to Wendell Carter and Daniel Gafford, Kornet will again be having his number...

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.

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
