Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: January 4th - 10th

New, 3 comments

Masked Kawhi & the Clippers are going to feast this week.

Welcome to my weekly Fantasy Basketball Forecaster! In here you’ll find:

  • Top 3 waiver wire adds (among all players under 50% rostered ESPN)
  • Leaders in each stat category over the last week
  • Each team’s schedule ranking, based on opponent’s points allowed, where the #1 ranked team plays teams allowing the most points so far this season

Top 3 Waiver Targets

  1. Keldon Johnson (37% rostered) — In the last week, Johnson is averaging 18.3 PPG/6.7 RPG/2.0 APG/1.6 StPG on 29 minutes. He’s scored more than 20 points in each of his last two games for the Spurs.
  2. Josh Jackson (30% rostered) — Things have started clicking for Jackson in Detroit as the 23-year-old is averaging 17.0/4.5/2.0/1.7 to start the year. He is day-to-day with an ankle injury but that shouldn’t stop you from adding him.
  3. Justin Holiday (6.5% rostered) — With TJ Warren out, Holiday isn’t a bad streaming option as he scored 12 points, shooting 4/5 from three in the Pacers first game without Warren. On the year, Holiday is averaging 9.2/2.7/1.0/1.7.
