Week 3 Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire
Darius Bazley, SF/PF – Oklahoma City Thunder (31% rostered)
Here comes the annual Darius Bazley love session. For guys under 65% rostered it really is hard to find the potential that Bazley possesses. Bazley absolutely balled out last week with a 20-point, 6-rebound, 4-steal performance. His periphery numbers are really solid as well with averages of 6.5 rebounds, 1.4 steals, and 1.2 over his last five games. He’s been inconsistent at times but has also proven he can be a stat producer over multiple weeks as he averaged 20.3 points and 7.3 rebounds over the final two last of last regular season. The Thunder have a thin depth chart so any injury will propel Bazley into monster minutes. You won’t want to miss out on that Thunder when it comes…
Kevin Love, PF/C – Cleveland Cavaliers (44% rostered)
Speaking of love session. Kevin Love deserves our attention! Love gets my not too shabby line of the week averaging 11.8 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.0 3PM over his last four games. Not too shabby am I right!? If you take out his one 16-minute dud performance, Love posted 14.3 points and 9.3 rebounds. Now we’re talking folks! Love looks rejuvenated and is motivated to perform this season. His minutes are trending up which can vault him into must-add territory if he starts to get back into the 30-minute range.
Cam Reddish, SG/SF – Atlanta Hawks (52% rostered)
The market has been pretty skeptical about Cam Reddish and after one bad game last week his stock fell hard. Not so fast for the third-year pro, who’s having himself a great start to the fantasy season. In five of his six games, Reddish is averaging 18.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.2 steals, and 2.4 3PM. There may be some bumps along the way, but Reddish will provide a nice scoring touch to your rosters, not to mention upside for tons more if guys are in and out of the lineup. I am bullish on Reddish! Pick him up!
Joe Ingles, SG/SF – Utah Jazz (54% rostered)
Joe Ingles quietly continues to put up solid numbers for the Jazz. Take out his one game due to an early flagrant foul ejection, Ingles is averaging 12.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 3.5 3PM on 49% shooting, and 100% from the FT line. It might not exactly be your kind of Jazz music, but the 34-year-old can certainly jam out baby. Mike Conley always seems to miss time with injuries which really bumps Ingles value so take note and fire up this quality tune.
Matisse Thybulle, SG/SF – Philadelphia 76ers (36% rostered)
If you’re in need of defensive stats then Matisse Thybulle is your guy! Thybulle has been piling up the tertiary numbers averaging 3.5 steals over his last two games and posting at least two blocks in three of his past four games while blocking three twice! He’s averaging 8 points and 3 rebounds as well over his last two games, but the minutes just haven’t been there. Philadelphia doesn’t have a ton of depth so the minutes should continue to rise, and he’d be a great pickup with another injury.
