Week 7 Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire
Brandon Clarke, SF/PF – Memphis Grizzlies (13% rostered)
With Ja Morant expected to miss significant time, there’s an opening for production in Memphis. Enter Brandon Clarke, everybody! The 2020 hype train has finally landed as Clarke balled out Sunday posting 15 points and 6 rebounds. He now has scored double-digit points in three of his last four games averaging 13.7 points and 7.7 rebounds to go along with great shooting percentages. Must add as we have a new star in Graceland.
*Desmond Bane (66% rostered) is also a great add if available.
Pat Connaughton, SG/SF – Milwaukee Bucks (46% rostered)
We can no longer ignore the hot Pat Connaughton. Connaughton continues to stuff the stat sheet averaging 15.5 points, 6 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.0 steals, and 3.3 3PTM over his last four games not to mention scoring double-digit points in nine of his last ten games. The steals rebounds and points make Cannaughton a great add to your fantasy roster.
Marcus Morris SR., PF/C – Los Angeles Clippers (25% rostered)
Marcus Morris Sr. made his return to the Clippers lineup last week after missing 15 games and he proved why he should be added to fantasy rosters. Morris benefitted from Nic Batum being out of the lineup, but Morris didn’t miss a beat posting 11.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 blocks and 2.0 3PTM in two games where he went over 30 minutes. Morris was a top-75 player down the stretch last season and can be a key contributor in the points, rebounds, blocks and threes categories. Not too shabby if you ask me!
Alec Burks, SG/SF – New York Knicks (29% rostered)
Alec Burks is another player that definitely deserves our attention. Burks got the start on Saturday and feasted for 23 points, 7 rebounds, 2 steals and 4 3PTM. Derrick Rose is out with an ankle injury which helps the cause, but Burks has been great scoring 12 points or more in five of his last six games averaging 16.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 2.0 steals. It’s going to be hard for the Knicks to keep his minutes down after this one which makes Burks an intriguing add.
Cedi Osman, SF/PF – Cleveland Cavaliers (20% rostered)
Cedi Osman will be a big piece in replacing Collin Sexton’s numbers who’s out for the season due to a knee injury. Osman has now scored double figures in four straight games averaging 17.5 points to go along with 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 3.8 3PTM. Those are some solid peripheral numbers to go with the great point totals. Osman is rocking right now in Cleveland …pick him up!
