The following list of players is ALL Rostered in UNDER 40% of Yahoo leagues.
Before we dive into the streaming chart, let's take a look at 3 Waiver Wire Adds, if available.
Waiver Wire Pickups
Precious Achiuwa, Heat (31% Rostered)
Let's face it, these protocols are getting out of hand. I hope whatever league you participate in, that 3 or more (INJ) spots are utilized. In the previous 2 games, Achiuwa had Double-Double stats. He hasn't given the stock stats we're expecting, but it's only a matter of time. Jimmy, Bam, and others have been under Covid-19 protocol. Achiuawa has taken advantage of those minutes on the floor. Coach Spo has already mentioned that he wanted to develop guys to learn how to win now. That is music to fantasy GM's ears. Whether he starts or not, he needs to be rostered in deeper formats to see how things work out. His teammate Gabe Vincent (7% Rostered) is an intriguing pickup, but the short term also. He needs to be rostered in all Dynasty, 12 Man, and pass on him in 10 Man leagues.
Waiver Priority: Use #4 Priority
Faab Budget Worth: Around 9% or more
Delon Wright, Pistons (33% Rostered)
Detroit is a wasteland team. He shot 1-10 last game but had 8 Rebounds and 7 Assists, 1 Steal, and 1 Block. Have to love those out of position stats. What we don't like is his shooting %. In the last 3 games, he has averaged 34 minutes a game. Wright's minutes are on an uptick with Killian Hayes out. One person we should continue to have on our watch list is Sekou Doumbouya (2% Rostered). He could be a stud potentially down the road. We ought to tamper our expectations since we saw how Detroit handled Wood. Detroit you sad organization. He needs to be rostered in all Dynasty and 12 man deep leagues. Shallow Leagues keep on the watch list.
Waiver Priority: Use #8 Priority
Faab Budget Worth: Around 3% or more
Harry Giles, Blazers (3% Rostered)
Harry Giles had a solid preseason. In 21 Mins he averaged 10 Points and 9 Rebounds and 1.5 Steals a game. His relevancy in the fantasy community will be legitimate if given the time. Well, some time is coming his way. Unfortunately, this comes on the heels of Nurkic's injury. Nurkic will be out for around 8 weeks. Enes Kanter will be the biggest winner here, but Giles is worth a look in Dynasty and Deeper Formats.
Waiver Priority: Save Your Priority For Someone Else
Faab Budget Worth: Around 2% or more
