NBA Waiver Wire: Week 18
Justin Fensterman goes around the league, providing players who are worth adding to your roster.
With the NBA trade deadline and All-Star weekend behind us, it’s time to shift gears and focus on teams who are essentially forfeiting the rest of the season. The concept of tanking lives and breathes in the NBA and teams such as the Suns, Cavs, Mavs, Knicks and Pelicans are looking to put themselves in the best possible position to claim the No. 1 draft pick. Just because teams are tanking, it doesn’t mean that you should totally dismiss them when it comes to fantasy. For both season long fantasy and DFS it becomes a lot easier to find value on those teams, especially if the starters (such as Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday of the Pelicans) are restricted for the rest of the season. Tanking teams will look to the end of their bench to get more experience on the court. All teams should be considered when making waiver wire pickups.
