Fantasy Hoops Waiver Wire Bin Vol. 20
Chucky Atkins - It helps when your team scores 137 & 168 points in back-to-back games, but Chucky has been on a mini-roll the past three games. He’s averaging 15.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 4.0 three-pointers per game over the stretch while shooting 62.5% from the floor and 75.0% from the line.
Juan Carlos Navarro - I’ve often said bad NBA teams produce quality under-the-radar fantasy performers. They usually burn out quickly, but if you can ride ‘em while they are hot, you can get good value out of them. Juan Carlos is no exception. In his last three games he’s averaged 19.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.7 steals, and 3.3 three-pointers per game while shooting 51.4% from the floor and 84.6% from the line. He qualifies at both PG & SG.
Ryan Gomes - February was a little slow for Gomes, but he’s back to fantasy respectability this month. In his past five games he’s averaging 18.2 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.0 three-pointers per game while shooting 48.5% from the floor and 88% from the line. He qualifies at both SF & PF.
Brandon Bass - He’s playing pretty well over the past five games, but I’m picking him partly because I am so ready to go fishing in a lake that’s not frozen. Ice fishing is OK, but I prefer fishing in a boat. Back to the matter at hand. In his past five games Bass has averaged 14.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.4 blocks per game. He’s shooting 69.6% from the floor and 85.7% from the floor. He qualifies at both SF & PF.
Ben Wallace - He’s not really playing that well, but I wanted to point out that he’s making $15.5 million this year and is barely worth a roster spot unless you’re desperate for rebounds and he’s the only one playing four games this week. He is hitting the board and contributing a little on D without the turnovers. In his past three games he’s averaging 4.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.0 steal, 1.7 blocks, and only 0.7 turnovers per game while shooting 75% from the floor and 100% from the line.
