King, Joker or Jack of Assists? Who to Pick 9th in Fantasy Basketball Drafts

NBA Waiver Wire: Deeper League Pickups (Week 23)

Only the best of the best are left in most fantasy leagues that involve playoffs.

Fantasy Basketball Risers and Fallers for NBA Week 23

Well actually, I think this one could be called "Who won/lost you your fantasy playoffs".

NBA Bench Risers: Waiver Wire Sleepers for Fantasy Basketball (Week 23)

NBA teams have a multitude of players coming off the bench, each with a unique role to fill. As a fantasy owner, you need to decide which of those players can contribute across multiple categories and have the potential to make the most of their time on the court.

NBA Waiver Wire (Week 20): H2H Offensive Category Streamers

It's never too early to start streaming. Whether you have an opening due to an injury, you auction-drafted a crew of stars and scrubs, or you just didn't bother putting any effort into your last couple draft picks, you probably have a player or two on your team who isn't must-own. You're better off using that roster spot to stream players to eke out wins in close categories in your weekly head-to-head matchups. This year, RotoBallercontinue reading...

Malcolm Brogdon (PG/SG, MIL) - NBA Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 39% Yahoo! ANALYSIS: Milwaukee's been hitting some injury woes (first Jabari Parker, now Michael Beasley) that are going to lead to extra production for some of the bench guys. Malcolm Brogdon is a guy who produces for fantasy by being pretty good everywhere, which lends him best toward roto leagues. He might still be splitting time withcontinue reading...

Cory Joseph (PG, TOR) - NBA Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 31% Yahoo! ANALYSIS: Kyle Lowry is expected to miss most of the remainder of the regular season, likely returning for the playoffs. That means Cory Joseph is the Raptors’ starting point guard for the rest of the fantasy basketball season. Joseph doesn't have elite upside, nor does he do any one thing particularly well. His per-36 minute production is mediocre— 13.4continue reading...

Nik Stauskas (SG/SF, PHI) - NBA Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14- and 16-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% Yahoo! ANALYSIS: Nik Stauskas has found a pretty decent role with the Philadelphia 76ers. He hadn't been too consistent in the beginning of the season, but he seems comfortable with his situation at the moment.

So, if you're looking to add some talent to your roster, aren't surecontinue reading...

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 34% Yahoo!

ANALYSIS: Another winner from the DeMarcus Cousins deal may be backup point guard Tim Frazier. He was a smart pickup early this season while Jrue Holiday was out, but he has played sparingly since both Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans returned to action.
