Fantasy Hoops Waiver Wire Bin Vol. 13

Feb 6, 2009

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

Mike Conley, Jr., Memphis
- Conley is finally starting to figure some things out.  It helps that he’s getting steady minutes.  In his four games he’s averaging 13.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.8 three-pointers per game.  He shot 45.2% from the floor, 63.6% from the line, and 50% from three.  He has a cap number of $2.13 in the Sporting News salary cap game, and is owned in 7.4% of ESPN and 40% of Yahoo leagues. 

Mario Chalmers, Miami -  The rookie has had ups and downs this year.  Right now he’s on an upswing.  In his last five games he’s averaging 12.6 points, 1.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 2.4 steals, and 2.2 three-pointers.  He shot 50% from the field, 92.3% from the line, and 55% from downtown.  He has a $2.60M SN cap number, and is owned in 26.1% of ESPN and 51% of Yahoo leagues.

Ryan Anderson, New Jersey
– Anderson has played well of late.  In his last four games he’s averaging 14.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 2.3 three-pointers.  He shot 51.4% from the field, 90% from the line, and 56.3% from three.  He qualifies at PF & C.  He has a $1.29M SN Cap number, and is owned in 1% of ESPN and 10% of Yahoo leagues.

Joey Graham, Toronto - The Swingman qualifies at both SG & SF.  I wanted to get him in there because he may have slid under the radar.  He hasn’t lived up to his draft status (16th pick), but he’s finally showing a little more this year.  In his last five games he’s averaging 13.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 0.8 assists, and 0.8 steals.  He shot 59.1% from the floor and 83.3% from the line.  He has a SN cap number of $0.50M, and is owned in 0.6% of ESPN and 4% of Yahoo leagues.

JaVale McGee, Washington
- Washington is terrible, but terrible teams often turn out decent fantasy players because someone has to score, rebound, etc.  The rookie has picked up his play this past week averaging 10.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.3 blocks while shooting 51.5% from the floor and 87.5% from the line.  He’s been even better over his past three games scoring in double-figures each game.  He qualifies at PF & C.  He has a SN cap number of $0.50M, and is owned in 1.9% of ESPN and 5% of Yahoo leagues.
