Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: February 22nd - 28th

Top waiver adds, strength of schedule and more!

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 the easiest DFS schedule for the week

Top 3 Waiver Wire Adds

DeAndre Jordan (44% rostered) — In the month of February, Jordan is averaging 9.2 PPG/7.8 RPG/2.1 APG/2.0 StPG. He’s always a threat to get you a double-double and his defense makes for great fantasy production.

Josh Hart (20% rostered) — Over the last week, Hart has averaged 14.0 points, 8.5 boards, and 1.5 stocks per game while shooting 43% from 3. He’s getting it done on both sides of court recently and those rebound numbers are excellent from the guard spot.

Tristian Thompson (14% rostered) — Thompson has gotten a lot more run time with the Celtics recently, starting their last four games. In those games, he’s averaging 13.3 points, 8.3 boards, and 1.8 stocks on 28 minutes per game. I doubt Thompson remains in the Celtics’ starting lineup for long, but while he’s there, he’s well worth rostering.
