Fantasy Basketball Weekend Streamers

NBA Fantasy Streamers is a weekly article put out by Fantrax to help Fantasy NBA managers chase down statistics in weekly league formats. All the players listed below play 2 games in three nights between Friday and Sunday, giving you the best opportunity to maximize their statistical output.

Teams With Two Games


Jonathan Kuminga, F – Golden State Warriors | 55% rostered

Best stats: REB, TBD

The curious case of Jonathan Kuminga. Every time it seems he takes a step forward, he falls back, loses minutes, or otherwise doesn’t produce to a level his talent would suggest.

The outlook for this weekend is less based on his potential and more due to the fact Stephen Curry is set to miss weeks with a shoulder injury and Draymond Green is listed as day-to-day. If Draymond misses out, then Kuminga’s path to minutes is clear. While he’s obviously not a direct replacement for curry, it will likely be done by committee, which includes Kuminga.

Royce O’Neale, F – Brooklyn Nets | 73% rostered

Best stats: AST, REB

Honestly, there is no telling what Royce is going to do statistically. What managers should know by now is that he’s going to play 30-plus minutes. O’Neale’s presence seems to be an integral part of the Nets moving forward in the post-Steve Nash era.

His stats don’t jump off the page, but compared to a player with only one match-up in three days his 5 rebounds and 5 assists a night could come in handy across two games.

Jalen McDaniels, F – Charlotte Hornets | 65% rostered

Best stats: PTS, STL

Mcdaniels has been a boom or bust candidate of late. Luckily for fantasy managers, streamers can have one bad game and still be an effective pick-up.

The Charlotte wingman has scored 15 or more in 5 of his last 8 games, including 3 20+ outbursts. McDaniels is also averaging over a steal a game in that 8 game stretch. He’s undoubtedly had complete blunders in that same 8 game run, but he’s worth the risk for a weekend.

Monte Morris, G – Washington Wizards | 77% rostered

Best Stats: AST, 3PM, PTS

The fact Morris is under 80% rostered is somewhat surprising given his assist output, nonetheless, he could probably always be a responsible streaming choice.

Beyond his 5 assists a game, Morris is averaging 14 ppg over his last 4 outings, while hitting more than 2 threes per contest. The most positive sign may be that he’s played more than 30 minutes plus in 3 of those 4 as well.

Moritz Wagner, F/C – Orlando Magic | 43% rostered

Best Stats: REB, TBD

He’s in the starting center spot with Wendell Carter out, and the Magic are playing good basketball.

Deni Avdija, G/F – Washington Wizards | 60% rostered

Best Stats: REB, STL

The third-year wing seems to have finally found a solid spot in the Wizards rotation, and the best indicator of stat production is nearly always usage.

Quentin Grimes, G/F – New York Knicks | 45% rostered

Best Stats: 3PM, TBD

The man is averaging 35 minutes a night over his last 7 games. When Tom Thibodeau finds someone he likes, he plays them and plays them a lot. It seems Grimes has played himself onto Thib’s nice list headed into the holiday season.
