Waiver Wire Pickups
Let’s get to the players you should consider picking up if they are available in your league: James Johnson KEEPS PRODUCING. Over the past two weeks, Johnson is averaging 12.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.6 blocks while shooting 53% from the field. Add him if you want a boost in EVERY category (who doesn’t?). Naz Reid is the only big man that matters in Minnesota. Over the past week, Reid is averaging 11.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.5 blocks. He’s raw, but he’s getting a ton of run with Towns sidelined and should be owned everywhere. Seth Curry has been LIGHTS OUT since the All-Star Break averaging 19.9 points, 4 3-pointers, 3.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 1.0 steals while playing 33 minutes per game. The Dallas Mavericks seem content on giving Curry all the run he can handle for the rest of the season. With Ayton looking at a potential multi-game absence with a sprained left ankle, Aron Baynes and Dario Saric are both worth a look in 12-plus team leagues for owners in need of a big man. Baynes is the safer option out of the two, but Saric possesses more upside. Danuel House Jr. has picked up the pace as of late averaging 14.3 points, 2 3-pointers, 4 rebounds, 0.7 steals, and 1.3 blocks over the past week. As long as Houston keeps playing micro-ball, House’s minutes should be safe. Cameron Johnson has been taking full advantage of life after Kelly Oubre’s injury. Over the past two weeks, Johnson is providing Top 100 value averaging 12 points, 3 3-pointers, 4.3 rebounds, 0.7 steals, and 1 block. He’s worth owning in 14-plus team leagues. Brandon Knight is doing his best “2015 Brandon Knight” impression averaging 17.7 points, 4.7 3-pointers, 2.3 rebounds, 6 assists, and 1 steal over the past week. Even though Bruce Brown is expected back soon, Knight still warrants a pickup in 14-plus team leagues until he cools off. Chris Boucher is the ultimate BOOM-or-BUST big man. His upside is otherworldly, but he’s inconsistent at best. If you can deal with the occasional duds, his blow-up games could help you win your week. Tread lightly. Jordan McRae was recently picked up by the guard-needy Detroit Pistons and proceeded to play 26 minutes in his first game producing 15 points, 2 3-pointers, 2 rebounds, and 3 assists. He’s a pickup in 14-plus team leagues while the Pistons wait on Rose and Kennard to return from injury.
The following players are producing Top 100 value over the past month. Consider adding these players while they’re hot!
