Waiver Wire Pickups
Let's get to the players you should consider picking up if they are available in your league: DOWN goes Pascal Siakam and DOWN goes Norman Powell. Chris Boucher has the most UPSIDE out of anyone on the Raptors bench. Ever since Kevin Huerter left last Sunday's game after tweaking his left shoulder, Huerter has been starting and performing well. The last two games, Huerter has 31 PTS, 5 3PM, 7 REB, 7 AST, and 4 STL. Donte DiVincenzo has been starting and playing heavy minutes in wake of the Eric Bledsoe injury. With Bledsoe looking at a two week absence, DiVincenzo should get all the minutes he can handle and should produce solid stat lines. Ben McLemore is the quintessential Rocket, in that, all he does is shoot 3-pointers. He's playing big minutes and shooting the ball well, so if you need 3PM, PTS, and decent FG% while chipping in a Steal every now and then, give him a look. When Doncic went down, there was a hot debate whether fantasy owners should pick up Jalen Brunson or Delon Wright. I urged everyone that if you need 3PM, PTS, REB, and AST go with Brunson. If you strictly need Steals, Wright is your guy. Brunson offers more in terms of fantasy, but Steals are extremely valuable. Both guards will have value as long as Doncic is OUT. Isaiah Thomas returned from a five-game absence last Monday and produced 5 3PM for 23 PTS and 6 AST. As long as Thomas is healthy, he'll provide useful fantasy stats. De'Andre Hunter is picking up his Steals rate lately, which is a welcomed sight. He's already starting and playing heavy minutes for a rebuilding Hawks team. He should be owned in all formats. Derrick Jones Jr. has been the main beneficiary of Justise Winslow's absence, so if you need 3PM and Steals, give him a look especially if you need to stream those categories. George Hill keeps producing off the bench, and is playing more minutes with Bledsoe sidelined. Hill provides 3PM, PTS, with low-end AST, REB and STL.
If all of the above players are taken in your league, I'd consider adding the following players and riding the wave while they're producing Top 100 value during Week 9 (all owned in under 50% of Yahoo Leagues)
Bruce Brown Jr.
Derrick Jones Jr.
