The schedule sets up for peaks and valleys this week, meaning there are days where most of the league plays (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and days where few teams play (Tuesday, Thursday).
PHI and LAC all play on Tuesday and Thursday AND have 4 games this week. UTA plays on Tuesday and Thursday with 3 games this week. To bolster your team in daily leagues, look for players on these teams. Here are some ideas:
LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS – Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday
The clippers have the most ideal schedule to boost games played with an array of waiver wire available players.
NICOLAS BATUM – SG/SF: Batum has been playing well, with valuable production in threes, rebounds, and field goal percentage with modest production in steals, and blocks.
LUKE KENNARD – SG: An option to boost threes this week.
TERRANCE MANN– SF: Gets minutes and is producing serviceable but not spectacular numbers. Solid option for this week if you need a deeper league play.
ERIC BLEDSOE – PG/SG: Will contribute steals and a moderate amount of assists.
IVICA ZUBAC – C: Big man states, and occasionally will get minutes over 30. Can be quite effective across multiple categories like points, rebounds, steals, blocks, and field goal percentage from the center position.
PHILADELPHIA 76ERS – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
The 76ers have key players out offering a unique opportunity for streaming this week with a great schedule.
MATISSE THYBULLE – SG/SF: Matisse Thybulle could be a defensive game-changer if deployed Tuesday/Thursday.
SHAKE MILTON – PG/SG: With players out, Shake Milton is surging, providing great cross-category performance.
ANDRE DRUMMOND – C: PHI begins with a back-to-back. Drummond could be an early week pick-up if Joel Embiid is rested for Tuesday.
UTAH JAZZ – Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
HASSAN WHITESIDE – C: Stream for blocks and rebounds. Also helps stabilize your field goal percentage.
JOE INGLES – SG/ SF/PF: More opportunity will be available if Mike Conley sits any games, but still produces threes and assists on the slow NBA days.
JORDAN CLARKSON- SG: Inconsistent but can help in points and steals.
