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. Larry Nance Jr. (48% rostered) — If your team is lacking in rebounds, Nance is the man for the job. Over the last week, Nance is averaging a very healthy double double, with 16.3 points and 10.7 boards plus a helpful 1.7 stocks per game.
  2. Tim Hardaway Jr. (18% rostered) — Since entering the Mavericks starting lineup, Hardaway has been an offensive machine, averaging 18.2 points and shooting 55% from the court and 50% from downtown (6 games).
  3. Davis Bertans (17% rostered) — Bertans brings a little bit of everything to your fantasy team, but most importantly brings a lot of three point shooting. On the season, he’s averaging almost 3.5 three pointers made to go with 4.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.1 stocks.
