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
Jeremy Lamb, Pacers (28% Rostered)
Lamb made his season debut on 1/20. Jeremy Lamb Finished Shooting 4/8 FG with 1 Snipe, 10 Points, 2 Rebounds, and 2 Steals in 19 Mins. Caris LeVert has been ruled out indefinitely, so this should help Lamb. Holiday has solidified minutes in LeVert's absence, but expect Lamb's minutes to trend upward. Lamb has been out since Feb. 23 due to a knee injury. We need to remember that Lamb finished inside Top 60 2 years ago. It will be hard to replicate that in Indiana but it's a player worth stashing to see how things shake out. He needs to be rostered in 12 Man leagues and deeper.
Waiver Priority: Use #6 Priority
Faab Budget Worth: Around 6% or more
Taurean Prince, Cavs (10% Rostered)
The Prince of All Saiyans is back. At least he gets increased opportunity in Cleveland, after the massive Harden trade. Cavs also released Kevin Porter Jr. Which clears up space on the wing. The wings that remain is Okoro, Osman, and Prince. Koby Altman is intrigued with his length. He envisions Prince to play the 3-and-D-Role on the wing. He could potentially be a top 150 Player ROS if everything breaks right. 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
Jeff Green, Nets (21% Rostered)
Jeff Green has filled his role quite nicely the last 3 games. He has been a Top 86 player within that period. Green Average 37.4 Minutes, 13.3 Points, 3 Snipes, and 5.7 Rebounds. Shooting an outstanding 70% FG. This will not be sustainable but ride the wave. A player that also has Center Eligibility is handy for those that need a Center. The Nets just signed Norvel Pelle (0% Rostered), which could also play soon. Keep him on your watch list. Pelle has massive block potential. Green should be rostered in deeper formats until Net's figure out the rotation.
Waiver Priority: Save Your Priority For Someone Else
Faab Budget Worth: Around 2% or more
Waiver Wire Mentioned Prior Weeks:
Week 5 - Precious Achiuwa, Delon Wright, Harry Giles
Week 4 - Cole Anthony, Shake Milton, Semi Ojeleye
