Merry Thanksturkey day Razzballers!
I would like to start by saying, C.J. Miles is a god. Period. No, you are not allowed to argue. He’s an inconsistent god, but a god nonetheless! He is unowned in 56% of Yahoo leagues. SHAME ON THOSE LEAGUES!!! Yes I’m league shaming, and no, all the social activists out there can’t do a thing about it!
Not a whole lot has changed in terms of pickups lately, but a few names have stood out in the past week:
- Ish Smith – PG – 51% – Ish is tearing it up this year, and I have no idea how it’s happening, but he does need to be owned until he cools off. 17 points, 5 boards, and 9 assists in the past week. Weirdly enough, he’s outplaying Jrue Holiday, and playing 31 mins a game right now. Own him!
- C.J. Miles – See above!
- Matthew Dellavedova – PG – 11% – Until Mo comes back, he’s a must own. He still should be very ownable even with Mo back, but Kyrie‘s return is starting to loom on the horizon. Grab him now if you need some short term help in assists and 3s.
- Rondae Hollis-Jefferson – SG/SF – 10% – The king of cheap multi-cat production. Plus, this week he averaged 3 steals a game, to go along with his solid rebound and point totals. Definitely making a case for himself as a pickup.
- Dion Waiters – SG/SF – 18% – An uninspiring pickup, but he has been stealing the ball at a solid clip lately. OKC also needs his offense badly, so not the worst option.
- Jerami Grant – SF/PF – 10% – Another solid multi-cat guy with solid blocks totals (averaging almost 2 a game on the season.)
I’m going to leave it at that for this week’s edition, but next week I’ll write a full version featuring the trades you post in the comments below! Submit any trades you want analyzed, or just to show off the steal you got!
If you want last-minute waiver advice, follow me @RazzWired for pickup info in between articles. Be sure to comment here for questions, but feel free to hit me up for waiver or trade advice on that account as well! Once a week is too long for pickup advice, so definitely follow that account if you’re in a competitive league! I’ll tweet more frequently as it gains a following.
Have an awesome Thanksgiving everybody!
