  • 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. Danilo Gallinari (45% rostered) — Coming out of the All-Star break, Gallinari is averaging 18.3 PPG/5.7 RPG/1.3 StPG while playing 29 minutes. Gallinari started Sunday with Clint Capela out.
  2. Dwight Howard (19% rostered) — With Joel Embiid set to miss 2-3 weeks, Howard is likely set to see a bit more playing time. Since the All-Star break, he’s been averaging 10.7 PPG/10.0 RPG/2.0 StPG.
  3. Kelly Olynyk (28% rostered) — Kelly O has been heating up as of late, scoring 20+ points in 3 of his last 4 games. Post All-Star break he’s averaging 15.7 PPG/7.7 RPG/3.0 APG/3.3 StPG and shooting 44% from 3.
