Fantasy Hoops Waiver Wire Bin Vol. 10

Jan 15, 2009

I’ve scoured the fantasy baskeball waiver wires to find gems so you don’t have to.

G
Mardy Collins, Los Angeles Clippers
With Baron Davis sidelined, Collins has stepped up his game.  In his last five games he’s averaging 15.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 2.2 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers per game.  He’s shooting 47.0% from the floor, 75% from the line, and 53.8% from three.  His Sporting News Salary Cap number is $0.50, and he’s owned in 1.8% of ESPN and 9% of Yahoo leagues.  He qualifies at PG & SG.

Nick Young, Washington
Young has been killin’ it of late with at least 28 points in three of his last four games.  In those four games he’s averaging 25.8 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 2.0 three-pointers per game.  He’s shooting 71.7% from the floor, 90.0% from the line, and 61.5% from downtown.  He has a $0.50M SN cap number, and is owned in 6.3% of ESPN and 18% of Yahoo leagues.  He qualifies at SG & SF.

F
Travis Outlaw, Portland
In his last three games Outlaw, which is one of the coolest last names ever, is averaging 20.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, and 2.3 three-pointers per game.  He’s shooting 47.4% from the field, 77.3% from the stripe, and 53.8% from behind the arc.  He has a $2.81 SN cap number, and is owned in 14.1% of ESPN and 50% of Yahoo leagues.  He qualifies at SF & PF.

Rodney Carney, Minnesota
Carney has found his way into Kevin McHale’s rotation, and with the team’s success, he should continue to play a key role.  In his last three games he’s averaging 17.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks, and 2.7 three-pointers.  He’s shooting 51.4% from the floor, 62.5% from the line, and 50% from three.  He has a $0.50M SN cap number, and is owned in 0.4% of ESPN and 2% of Yahoo leagues.  He qualifies at SG & SF.

C
Kurt Thomas, San Antonio
He’s not the Kurt Thomas of old, but he still has some value in daily leagues.  In his last three games he’s averaging 7.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steal, and 0.7 blocks per game.  He’s shooting 90.9% from the floor and 50% (1 of 2) from the line.  He’s not useful in the SN cap game as his number is a bloated $3.48, but he’s owned in 0.4% of ESPN and 2% of Yahoo leagues if you need a bump in FG% and rebounds.  He qualifies at PF & C.
