Fantasy Hoops Waiver Wire Bin Vol. 13
I’ve scoured the fantasy basketball waiver wires to find gems so you don’t have to.
Darren Collison, PG, New Orleans Hornets
I’m sure you’ve heard the news that Chris Paul will miss a month or two following knee surgery. Collison should be at the top of everybody’s list. He had 17 points, 18 assists, and 6 rebounds in his first start for Paul. He’s owned in 31.0 percent of Yahoo! and 7.0 percent of ESPN leagues.
Mike Miller, SG/SF, Washington Wizards
Miller was at the top of his game last week averaging 15.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 3.0 three-pointers while shooting 52.8 percent from the field. He’s owned in 54.0 percent of ESPN and 41.0 percent of Yahoo! leagues.
Arron Afflalo, SG, Denver Nuggets
Afflalo was solid last week averaging 12.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.3 steals, and 2.5 three-pointers. He shot 59.4 percent from the floor without missing a free throw. Carmelo Anthony is set to return, which will cut into his numbers, but he remains a decent player in daily transaction leagues. If J.R. Smith is dealt, his value should increase. Arron is owned in 15.0 percent of Yahoo! and 1.5 percent of ESPN leagues.
Marcus Thornton, PG/SG, New Orleans Hornets
Thornton has been heavy on the scoring of late, a trend that should continue while CP3 is sidelined. Last week he averaged 17.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 0.8 steals, and 2.3 three-pointers. He shot 46.3 percent from the floor and 92.3 percent from the line. Marcus is owned in 27.0 percent of Yahoo! and 5.5 percent of ESPN leagues.
Carlos Delfino, SG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks
Delfino is in the waiver wire bin once again. Last week he averaged 14.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.7 steals, and 2.0 three-pointers. He shot 54.8 percent from the floor and 80.0 percent from the line. Carlos is owned in 48.0 percent of Yahoo! and 26.9 percent of ESPN leagues.
Jared Jeffries, SG/SF, New York Knicks
Jeffries is a regular stat stuffer. Last week he averaged 11.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.5 blocks, and 1.5 three-pointers while shooting 62.1 percent from the floor. His only fault was making Shaq look like Mark Price with his 28.6 percent free-throw percentage. Jared is owned in 5.0 percent of Yahoo! and 0.7 percent of ESPN leagues.
Corey Brewer, SG/SF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Brewer continues to produce for the Wolves. Last week he averaged 17.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 2.3 three-pointers while shooting 52.9 percent from the floor and 88.9 percent from the line. Corey is owned in 54.0 percent of Yahoo! and 29.5 percent of ESPN leagues.
