Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: April 12th - 18th

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. Kevin Love (53% rostered) — Slightly breaking my 50% rule but Love has started the last six games for the Cavaliers and is slowly starting to look like his old-self. Over those 6 games, Love is averaging 14.5 PPG/6.8 RPG/2.5 APG/1.1 StPG while shooting 38% from 3 on 7.8 attempts per game.
  2. Tomas Satoransky (27% rostered) — Satoransky has been piling up the assists in April, averaging 6.8 per game. Only 15 players this season are averaging six assists per game and I can promise you they are all already rostered in your league. Satoransky is also averaging 9.2 PPG/2.7 RPG/1.4 StPG to go with his high assists.
  3. Jalen McDaniels (12% rostered) — McDaniels has started the last three games for the Hornets in place of Bismack Biyombo. In those games he is averaging 16.3 PPG/5.0 RPG/3.3 APG/2.3 StPG.

DFS Strength of Schedule

A good week for the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics who face the easiest schedule this week. A tough go of things for the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies.
