Fantasy Hoops Waiver Wire Bin Vol. 18
I’ve scoured the fantasy baskeball waiver wires to find gems so you don’t have to.
Mickael Pietrus, Orlando Magic - Pietrus has been solid lately scoring 11.8 points to go along with 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks, and 3.0 three-pointers over his last four games. He shot 54.8% from the floor and 52.2% from three. He was just 1 of 6 from the line. He has a cap number of $1.31M in the Sporting News salary cap game, and is owned in 59.8% of ESPN and 31% of Yahoo leauges. He qualifies at SG & SF.
Arron Afflalo, Detroit Pistons – Affalo has been solid replacing Rip Hamilton averaging 20.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 steal, and 4.0 three-pointers in those two games. He shot 52% from the floor, 61.5% from downtown, and 6 of 6 from the charity stripe. He has a $0.50M SN cap number, and is owned in 0.3% of ESPN and 1% of Yahoo leagues. He qualifies at PG & SG. Rip is supposed to miss again tonight so Afflalo could make a solid play. He’s a short-term fix though because Rip will likely be back soon.
Steve Novak, Los Angeles Clippers - Novak has been en fuego the past four games for the Clippers averaging 17.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.5 blocks, and 5.3 three-pointers per game. He shot 60% from the floor, 2 for 2 from the line, and 61.8% from downtown. He has a $0.50M SN cap number, and is owned in 1% of ESPN and 9% of Yahoo leagues. He qualifies at SF & PF.
Antonio McDyess, Detroit Pistons - McDyess has turned back the clock recently. In his last five games he’s averaging 16.0 points, 15.2 rebounds (including two 20+ rebound efforts), 1.8 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.4 blocks. He shot 48.6% from the field and 8 for 8 from the line. He has a $4.04M SN cap number, and is owned in 29.5% of ESPN and 64% of Yahoo leagues. He qualifies at PF & C.
