Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: February 3rd - 9th

Will Damian Lillard be able to survive his tough schedule 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

3 players to add off waivers

  1. Miles Bridges (63% rostered) — I’m breaking my 50% ownership here but Bridges has been a BEAST this past week, averaging 21 PPG/5.3 RPG/1.7 APG. If he’s available in your league (especially dynasty leagues) add him now!
  2. Shabazz Napier (34% rostered) — He was on the list last week and remains on the list as he averaged 10.5 PPG/5 RPG/9 APG plus two steals per game this last week. He’s been balling for the Timberwolves.
  3. Cody Zeller (41% rostered) — Ol’ Zeller is a must add for those looking to boaster their rebounding. Zeller is averaging 7.1 boards on the season, but coming off a week in which he posted 9.7 per game.
