Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: November 18th - 24th

Bradley Beal going to stay on FIRE this week.

Welcome to this week’s Fantasy Basketball Forecaster! In here you’ll find:

  • Top 3 waiver wire adds (among all players under 50% owned ESPN)
  • Leaders in each stat category over the last week
  • Each team’s schedule ranking, based on opponent’s stats allowed, where the #1 ranked team faces the easiest fantasy schedule this week

Let’s begin!

3 players to add off waivers

  1. Carmelo Anthony (14% rostered) — HE’S BACK! Melo signed with the Trail Blazers last week to give them some much needed help at the four spot. I’m a firm believer that there is still plenty in Melo’s tank and as such, he’s a must-add to your fantasy team.
  2. Bogdan Bogdanovic (25% rostered) — Over the last week, Bogdan has seen his minutes spike to 33 per game, and with it seen all his stat categories spike as well. He averaged 18.3 points, 3 boards and 8.3 assists (along with 2.7 steals) last week.
  3. Marcus Smart (26% rostered) — Smart has been thriving starting for the Celtics with Gordon Hayward injured, shooting 43% from downtown during that time (four games). He’s also giving you almost two stocks per game which is excellent defense your fantasy team probably needs.

Strength of schedule

A great week for Bradley Beal to continue his hot streak as the Wizards have the easiest schedule this week. It’ll be a tough run for the young Pelicans and the Rockets though.
