Fantasy Hoops Waiver Wire Bin Vol. 20

Apr 3, 2009

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

G
Brandon Rush, Indiana Pacers
- Rush has been hot for the Pacers.  Bad teams still produce good fantasy options.  In his last five games Rush has averaged 19.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers per game.  He shot 54.5% from the floor, 80% from the line, and 31.8% from downtown.  He has a cap number of $1.54M in the SportingNews salary cap game, and is owned in 7.8% of ESPN and 23% of Yahoo leagues.  He qualifies at PG, SG, and SF.

Eddie House, Boston Celtics - Eddie has stepped it up for the Celtics.  He averaged 15.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.7 steals, and 3.0 three-pointers per game.  He shot 52.% from the floor, 50% from the line, and 45% from three.  He has a SN cap number of $0.50M, and is owned in 4.7% of ESPN and 11% of Yahoo leagues.  He qualifies at PG & SG. 

F

Anthony Randolph, Golden State Warriors - Randolph has made the most of his opportunity with Golden State.  In his last five games he’s averaging 11.6 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.4 blocks.  He shot 52.3% from the floor and 70.6% from the line.  He has a SN cap number of $1.42M, and is owned in 4.5% of ESPN and 21% of Yahoo leagues.  He qualifies at SF & PF.

Glen Davis, Boston Celtics – Big Baby has done a nice job filling in for KG.  In his last three games he averaged 14.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 0.7 steals.  He shot 47.2% from the floor and 52.9% from the line.  He has a SN cap number of $0.50M, and is owned in 2.2% of ESPN and 10% of Yahoo leagues.  He qualifies at PF & C, and should get decent run until the end of the year with KG out.

C
Boris Diaw, Charlotte Bobcats - I offer Diaw for SN salary cap players.  He’s heavily owned in fantasy leagues (89.4% on ESPN and 76% on Yaho).  His SN cap number, though, is just $2.77M.  If you have any trades left, you should acquire his services.  If he happens to be available in your leagues, grab him quickly.  In his last five games he’s averaged 15.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.4 three-pointers.  He shot 50% from the floor, 80% from the line, and 53.8% from downtown.  He qualifies at SF, PF & C.
