Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: March 1st - 7th

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

  1. Malik Monk (17% rostered) — Monk went OFF last week, averaging 23.8 points per game and shooting 39% from three. It’s been a slow start to a career for Monk but the kid can score and things seem to be starting to click.
  2. Bruce Brown (13% rostered) — With the Nets dealing with injuries heading into the All-Star break, Brown saw 29 minutes per game last week and made those minutes count, averaging 17.0 PPG/6.3 RPG/2.5 APG/1.3 StPG.
  3. Robert Williams (20% rostered) — TimeLord saw a minute uptick last week and so did all his counting stats. The last five games he’s averaging 7.6 PPG/7.4 RPG/2.0 APG/2.2 StPG. That’s defensive production you love to see.

Strength of Schedule

The Minnesota Timberwolves have by far the easiest schedule, just playing the Charlotte Hornets once before the All-Star break. Tough week for the Indiana Pacers, playing the Philadelphia 76ers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Denver Broncos this week.
