With the season winding down, we’re going to stick to this shorter format.  Frankly, the waiver wire is fairly dry at the moment, and most players available are known quantities at this point.

  • Richaun Holmes – PF/C – 16% – He’s suddenly relevant after the trade of Nerlens Noel, and the injury to Joel Embiid.  Over the past 3 games, he’s racked up 10 blocks along with decent contributions in points, boards, and steals.  Definitely worth a grab while Embiid is out.
  • Terrence Ross – SG/SF – 46% – I pushed him as soon as the trade went down.  His ownership shot up after his big game, but I’m sure he’s still available in some of your leagues.  He has a massive green light in Orlando, so enjoy the ride.
  • Maurice Harkless – SF – 35% – Harkless shows up sporadically on the the waiver list, but at the moment, he has a great opportunity to shine, given the Blazers’ wing injuries.  He’s providing great value with 3 and D type output.
  • Alan Williams – PF – 14% – He’s red hot right now, and arguably the best performing big on the Suns.  I’m not sure how the minutes will play out, but he’s worth an add if he keeps getting 28+.
  • Jameer Nelson – PG – 41% – This is a no-brainer, but he’s still not over 50% owned yet.  Jameer has run away with the starting job as he tries to will the Nuggets into the 8th seed.
  • Zaza Pachulia – C – 12% – I’m not sure if he can maintain his production on his low minute count, but if you need some boards and blocks, you could do worse.
  • Cory Joseph – PG – 30% – Kyle Lowry is out for the regular season.  No further explanation needed.
  • Cameron Payne – PG – 5% – I’d definitely rather have CoJo, but Payne is worth a speculative add if you have a playoff spot locked up.  He definitely could gain a sizable role, but I wouldn’t count on him putting up major facilitation numbers.  He’ll most likely end up being a good spot up shooter, while playing off of Wade, Butler, and possibly Rondo.

Make sure to include league size and format with all questions.

That’s all for now folks!  Stay Razzy!

    I need a guard right now.
    Currently Rondo is on waiver and I have Jarret Jack. I don’t know but do you think Jack might be better with Pelicans situation. I am in 9 cat roto
    Rondo kind of scares me with TO/% and also Bulls have 4 PGs right now. But, Rondo is play well

    PG: Chris Paul, Damian Lillard, Jarret Jack
    SG-SF: Giannis Antetekumpo, Kyle Korver, Robert Covington, Tobias Harris, Gary Harris, Marcus Morris, Buddy Hield
    PF-C: Nerlens Noel, WIllie Caullie Stein, Cody Zeller, Zach Randolph, Alan Williams, Gorgui Dieng,

      @Michael: Also what do you think of Buddy Hield, I am little skeptical on this guy

      @Michael: I think I’d keep rolling with Jack – He won’t hurt you in any area. That’s more important in Roto.

      Personally, I’m a huge Hield fan, but here’s my take. He’s extremely streaky right now, and I think that he will become more consistent in a year or two. However, he’s a big time talent, and he has a lot of minutes to work with, so he’s definitely worth keeping as a wildcard.

    Thanks for the post Adam!

    I’m just trying to get everyone’s opinion on this possible trade I got offered.

    My Schroder + Pau + Saric for His Kemba + Crowder

    In a vacuum for a 10 team 9 cat league, how does this look?

    Now, how about when you’re in my case, where Pau is healthy in my IL and I don’t necessarily need him? (Replaced him with WIlly Hernangomez)

    I countered with me giving Schroder and Pau for Kemba, but he insisted he wants Saric and he throws in Crowder.

    Saric has been a beast and I’m having a tough time letting him go, and idk how much I trust Crowder.

    Thanks!

    • Adam

      Adam says:

      @Threekola: I think I’d take the Kemba side, just by a touch… He’s the best player in the deal. It is very even though, so I wouldn’t blame you at all for keeping Saric.

    Points League. Locked into playoffs with a 1st round bye. Embiid out ROS. Drop Ivica Zubac for Richaun Holmes? Are they close? Thanks in advance.

    • Adam

      Adam says:

      @Polish: I’m taking Zubac there. I’d rather have Holmes short term, but Zubac should be a better stash.

    With the news Embiid is out for the season; how do you value Okafore the rest of the way.

    Would you drop either Hernangomez or Favors for him?

    • Adam

      Adam says:

      @Rice: I’m not sure what to think of him honestly. I’d consider dropping either for him though. Probably Favors.

    G— Schrodder, McConnell, Gary Harris, Tyler Johnson,
    Forward— Anthony davis, draymand , horford, Favors, KOQ, Plummlee
    Center— ROLO, Zubac, Nurkic

    I have 2 moves left this week. I picked up Zubac today and KOQ yesterday would you grab Cody Zeller, willy Hernangomez ( his % and D would help ) , Yogi, Lin, Chriss or andre roberson those last 2 cuz they still has 3 games left and drop Zubac ( pick him back up next week) Plumlee ( his ast. make lean towards keeping him over Zeller) although he is playing too today. I was thinking about yogi ( although his FG% have sucked) , chriss or andre because my only chance is to solidify ast. steals, Blocks, FT % , FG%, Even with Friggin 8 damn ppl that can play Center I still can’t rebound worth the shit. Thx for the help and suggestions as always !! Cheers !!!

    • Adam

      Adam says:

      @Miracle on 34th street: I’d swap Zubac for Willy if he’s for sure going to play. Probably drop Plumlee for Chriss to get that Multi-Cat action. Was Allan Williams grabbed in your league yet? He’d be a great way to bounce back in boards.

      • Miracle on 34th street says:
        (link)

        @Adam: Yes Allan williams, Holmes and Kanter have been picked off waivers already. Willy is OUT with his ankle and on waivers till friday and questionable for friday as well. The Top rebounders available in my league Per season long Avg. in order from the most is Bogut 8.3 , J green 7.3 Dedmon 6.7 Zeller 6.5 Willy H 6.1 and ZaZa 6.1 and tony allen 5.7. Id like to pick up someone with a game tonight but if I sleep on Chriss there is a chance he’s gone before the games tomorrow. If i lose Zubac today for him I don’t lose a game. I can Play Plumlee tonight get his game then drop him tomorrow or friday for Willy if he plays but prolly Questionable or someone else you suggest. I could probably pick zubac back up next week. Figures I play him yesterday and he gets his least amt. of min since feb 3rd and this on the heels of it being reported getting heavier min. Ugh ! Thx again Adam !!!

        @Adam: Who would you drop though?

          @Tyler: Oh, I thought you had a free slot. Hmmm, I think I’d just hold there then.

    Who’s my most droppable player?

    12team punting 3s/TO

    G-Wall,Bev,Tyreke,Derozan,Gary Harris
    F-Giannis,Hayward,Middleton,Harkless
    C-Gobert,Horford,Myles,WCS

    Locked for 1st rd BYE and so gearing up for round 2/3 of playoffs.
    Seeing as my team has a lot of players going 3 games for round 2 I’m a bit worried
    3game weeks for rd 2: SAC, HOU, UTA, TOR — That’s 6 players from my team

    I’m eyeing Chriss, Alan Williams and Richaun Holmes for their 4game playoff sched final 2 weeks.

    Among my 3game week guys, I have a feeling it’s the SACtown peeps Tyreke and WCS who I can let go.. But should I make the move?

    Also, who’s my most droppable player for a streamer? Haha

    • Adam

      Adam says:

      @Tyler: I wouldn’t mind dropping Reke for Williams. I don’t want to drop WCS though.

      • Tyler says:
        (link)

        @Adam: So drop Reke before Harkless even though Evan Turner is set to return before fantasy playoffs?

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @Tyler: I think with how Harkless is producing, he’ll manage to hold onto minutes between the SF and PF slots.

  8. Kennneth Dean says:
    (link)

    My lineup:

    PG Oladipo
    SG Hayward
    G Beal
    PF Durant (who is now pretty much done for fantasy)
    SF Harkless
    F Dwight Howard
    C Gobert
    C Jokic
    Tucker, Barton, Okafor and Chriss all rotating positions and utility…

    Someone recently offered me Derozan for Jokic… should I do it?

    • Adam

      Adam says:

      @Kennneth Dean: I wouldn’t – Derozan just doesn’t provide the stat variety.

    Bradley or Crowder ROS

    Crowder safety vs. Bradley more upside but injury risk

    (I can afford waiting a couple weeks for Bradley, I’m locked in #1 and have bi week)

    Thanks!

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Threekola: If you’re locked in, I like Bradley there.

  10. Tyler says:
    (link)

    Would you consider dropping WCS for Harkless, Alan Williams or Chriss based on better playoff sched. PHO sched just fits my team better with the 4-4 sched and games on off days

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: I’d really try to hold WCS. He’s the most guaranteed in that group.
