Before we dive into the streaming chart, let’s take a look at notable headlines from Week 3:
- Damian Lillard scored a CAREER-HIGH 60 points!
- Serge Ibaka suffered a “very bad” ankle sprain
- The Jonathan Isaac BREAKOUT is in FULL FORCE
- John Collins suspended 25 games for PEDs
- Jabari Parker is BALLING OUT in John Collin’s absence
The following list of players are ALL owned in UNDER 50% of Yahoo, ESPN, and Fantrax leagues.
Please Note: We have added a column labeled “B2B”, which highlights players who have Back-to-Back games on their Week 4 schedule.
Waiver Wire Pickups
Let’s get to the players who you should consider picking up if they are available in your league: Jabari Parker is PRODUCING and receiving BIG minutes with John Collins OUT. Yes, there is an expiration date on his value, but until Collins comes back, Parker is a MUST-ADD. Dillon Brooks continues to start and produce on a fast-paced offense led by rookie sensation Ja Morant. Until the wheels fall off, Marcus Morris needs to be owned and started in ALL leagues. Troy Brown Jr. is now the starter in Washington, and his upside alone warrants a speculative pickup everywhere. Over the past 4 games, Hamidou Diallo has played 20+ minutes per game for a Thunder team that seems poised to let their young studs get more run as the season goes on. Over the summer, there was a lot of hype surrounding Anfernee Simons, and ever since Zach Collins went down with a shoulder injury, his minutes and scoring have increased dramatically. With Serge Ibaka going down with a “very bad” ankle sprain, both Norman Powell and Chris Boucher deserve a speculative pickup to see if they can produce while Ibaka is sidelined.
If all of the above players are taken in your league, I’d consider picking up the following players and riding the wave while they’re currently producing:
- Jae Crowder
- Frank Ntilikina
- Alec Burks
- Bryn Forbes
- Raul Neto (as long as Ben Simmons is sidelined)
