Fantasy Hoops Waiver Wire Bin Vol. 23

Apr 8, 2008

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

Chris Quinn  
- The funny thing about being on a sucky team like the Heat, is when your team goes into tank mode, unexpected fantasy stars emerge.  Quinn is one of those guys.  In the last five games he’s averaging 17.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.4 steals, and 2.6 three-pointers per game.    She’s shot 41.7% from the floor and 88% from the line.  He qualifies at PG & SG.

Rodney Stuckey
- Rodney Stuckey is in a different boat.  His team (Detroit) is so good that it has accomplished all that it’s going to accomplish in the regular season.  They have decided to get their starters rested for the playoff run.  That has translated to three big games for Stuckey.  He’s averaged 20.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.7 steals per game.  He’s shot 51.4% from the floor and 87.5% from the line.  He also qualifies at PG & SG.

Leon Powe - Powe makes his return to the waiver wire.  In his last five games he’s averaging 14.2 points, 8.8 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.6 blocks, and 0.6 blocks.  He’s shot 53.8% from the field and 87.9% from the line.  He’ll likely factor in more down the stretch as the C’s rest the Big 3. He qualifies at SF & PF. 

Josh Powell - Powell has found that rebounds is easier alongside Elton Brand.  In his last three games he’s averaging 11.3 rebounds.  His scoring average (10.3) is misleading as 22 came on Sunday.  He did block 1.3 shots and shoot 55.6% from the floor.  You’ll have to live with the 1 for 5 FT shooting he produced.  He qualifies at SF, PF, and C, which gives him some nice flexibility down the stretch in daily leagues.

Spencer Hawes
- Sacramento is going to give Hawes an extended look to see what he can do.  In his last three games the rookie has averaged 9.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.3 steal, and 0.7 block per game.  He shot 40.6% from the field and 3 for 3 from the line.
