Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: March 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

  1. Kyle Kuzma (54% rostered) — I’m breaking my under 50% rule to demand you go roster Kuzma if he’s available in your league. With both LeBron James and Anthony Davis out for the Lakers, Kuzma is about to get a ton of usage and stats across the board.
  2. Jordan Poole (17% rostered) — Filling in for the injured Steph Curry, Poole has gone absolutely off in his last three games, averaging 24.6 points per game along with at least one steal.
  3. Jae’Sean Tate (18% rostered) — Tate doesn’t do one thing super well, he does everything reliably good. Since the All-Star break, the rookie is averaging 11.3 PPG/5.6 RPG/1.7 APG/2.7 StPG.

DFS Strength of Schedule

A great DFS week for a couple of teams, including the Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, and New York Knicks. For the Utah Jazz and Orlando Magic however, it’s going to be tough sledding.
