Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: December 30th - January 5th

New, 4 comments

The Jaylen Brown Extravaganza is going to keep rolling 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. Joe Ingles (65% rostered) — He’s a little over my 50% line, but Ingles has started the last 11 games for the Jazz and is averaging 15.7 points, 4.7 boards, and 5.8 assists while shooting a staggering 54% from three (on 6.4 attempts per game).
  2. Damion Lee (9% rostered) — Lee has now started seven games for the Warriors and in that time is averaging 15.3 points (shooting 41% from three), 8.6 boards, 3.3 assists, and 1.1 stocks on 31.9 minutes per game. He’s on a hot streak and a must own.
  3. Gary Payton II (6% rostered) — In the last three games, Payton has filled in for an injured Bradley Beal and has played well, averaging 11.7 points, 7.3 boards, 4 assists, and a ridiculous 5 stocks per game.
