New, 1 comment

It’s going to be an easy breezy week for LeBron and the Lakers.

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

3 players to add off waivers

  1. Naz Reid (17% rostered) — With Karl-Anthony Towns out with a wrist injury, Reid got his first start Friday and put up 19 and 9 with three steals. He’ll continue to play starting minutes in Minnesota with Towns out.
  2. Thaddeus Young (51% rostered) — Young has started the last 11 games for the Bulls and is averaging 13.7 PPG/6.2 RPG/1.6 APG along with 2.5 StPG.
  3. Bruce Brown (27% rostered) — Brown not only gets you points and assists, stats you’d expect from a guard, he also gets boards, averaging 10.7 over his last three games.

Strength of Schedule

A great week for the Pacers and the Lakers as they play the easiest schedule of the week. Meanwhile, it’s going to be tough sledding for D’Angelo Russell and the Timberwolves without Karl-Anthony Towns.
