Best Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Pickups: Week of Mar 6th

We’re down to the nitty gritty now. Depending on your fantasy basketball league’s setup, we may be upon your last week before the playoffs kick off (at least that’s the case in the SGPN league I’m in). That means this is your last chance to use your fantasy basketball waiver wire to upgrade your roster for a deep run to the championship.

(only includes players rostered in 50% or less of Yahoo Fantasy leagues; stats listed are after Saturday’s games)

Best Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Pickups: Week of Mar 6th

Kyle Anderson – Minnesota – SF/PF – 48% Rostered

(8.8 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 4.2 APG, 1.2 SPG, 0.9 BPG, 0.6 3PTs)

‘Slo Mo’ Kyle Anderson is back in our top spot two weeks in a row. While things have been a bit of a dumpster fire in Minneapolis, once again, Anderson has been solid. Over the past week, he averaged 12.7 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 5.3 APG, 1.3 SPG, and 1.0 BPG, and also went three for three from deep last game. Why did I drop him from my team earlier this season?!

Bruce Brown – Denver – SG/SF/PF – 45% Rostered

(11.2 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 3.5 APG, 1.0 SPG, 0.6 BPG, 1.3 3PTs)

This man I am wise enough to have rostered currently. Bruce Brown has been especially potent when filling in as a starter for Jamal Murray, but he’s been very good lately with Murray back in the fold and Brown back on the bench. He has double-digit scoring efforts in three straight games, and also has 16 rebounds in those three games. With three-position eligibility, he also helps you in all stat categories.

Grayson Allen – Milwaukee – SG/SF – 21% Rostered

(10.7 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 2.4 APG, 0.8 SPG, 0.2 BPG, 2.1 3PTs)

I still don’t get why Grayson Allen isn’t rostered more than he is. On Saturday, he posted a superb 20 points, three rebounds, and three assist stat line, while going six for eight from long-range. He’s hit a three in 21 straight games, and 10 total over his last two heading into Sunday’s action. And, as the stats above show, he brings more than just three-pointers to your squad.

Isaiah Joe – Oklahoma City – PG/SG – 18% Rostered

(9.2 PPG, 2.3 RPG, 1.2 APG, 0.6 SPG, 0.1 BPG, 2.3 3PTs)

Now Isaiah Joe, on the other hand, is more of a long-range specialist if you need help in that area. He’s also heating up again, with double-digit scoring in back-to-back games and four of five. Like Allen, he is also on a long three-pointer streak, with 20 straight games hitting at least one from behind the line. This includes six games with five or more threes hit.


Tari Eason – Houston – SF/PF – 39% Rostered

(9.0 PPG, 5.7 RPG, 1.0 APG, 1.1 SPG, 0.6 BPG, 0.7 3PTs)

It’s been an up-and-down season for Houston’s Tari Eason, but so is life as an NBA rookie. But he’s on an “up” cycle right now that could make him worth a roster spot. He has four straight double-digit scoring games – and five of six – including 20 in his last game. In those four games, he’s posted averages of 15.5 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 2.0 APG, 1.5 SPG, 1.3 BPG, and hit five three-pointers.

Delon Wright – Washington – PG/SG – 41% Rostered

(7.1 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 3.9 APG, 2.0 SPG, 0.4 BPG, 0.9 3PTs)

Look at those steals. Delon Wright‘s 2.0 SPG are tied for best in the league currently, thanks to nine total steals over his last two games. In fact, he put up amazing stat lines in back-to-back games against the team that originally drafted him, the Toronto Raptors. On Thursday, he had seven points, six boards, 11 assists, and three steals; then on Saturday, he had 18 points, six boards, seven assists, six steals, and a block. Grab him while he’s hot.
