Fantasy Hoops Waiver Wire Bin Vol. 12

Jan 25, 2010

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

Carlos Delfino, SG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks
Delfino has been playing great hoops for the Bucks. Last week he averaged 16.5 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.5 blocks, and 3.0 three-pointers while shooting 46.2 percent from the field. The only category he didn’t help fantasy owners was free throw percentage as he hit just 66.7 percent of his attempts. Carlos is owned in 37.0 percent of Yahoo! and 11.9 percent of ESPN leagues.

Drew Gooden, PF/C, Dallas Mavericks
Gooden saw a spike in production last week averaging 13.3 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.8 steals, and 1.5 blocks. He shot 56.8 percent from the floor and 90.9 percent from the line. Erick Dampier is supposed to return this week, but Gooden is still a decent option in daily transaction leagues.  Drew is owned in 24.0 percent of Yahoo! and 6.9 percent of ESPN leagues.

Brandon Rush, SG/SF, Indiana Pacers
Rush was solid last week averaging 13.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 block, and 2.0 three-pointers. He hit 60.0 percent of his shots without missing a free throw. Brandon is owned in 27.0 percent of Yahoo! and 1.7 percent of ESPN leagues. He’s also more of a daily transaction league player.

Corey Brewer, SG/SF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Brewer remained hot last week averaging 15.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.0 steals, 1.0 block, and 2.0 free throws. He shot 46.0 percent from the floor and 69.2 percent from the line. Corey is owned in 43.0 percent of Yahoo! and 14.0 percent of ESPN leagues.

Robin Lopez, PF/C, Phoenix Suns
Robin Lopez was mentioned last week, and hopefully you were able to secure him. If he’s still floating around on your waiver wire, you probably want to grab him. Last week Lopez averaged 16.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 0.5 steals, and 1.3 blocks. He shot, get this, 76.7 percent from the floor and 78.3 percent from the line. Robin is owned in 45.0 percent of Yahoo! and 11.8 percent of ESPN leagues.
