The Wire Troll: The Fountain of Youth

Young Ben McLemore is earning trust from the Sacramento Kings.

By now you should know where your team stands, you should know if you are looking for a breakout player or just looking for solid handcuffs and playing it safe. In Roto leagues you should know what categories you have going for you and which one you need help with. Although these are the facts at this stage, we still are only five weeks into the season which means you still have time to rebound and get into contention. It doesn’t matter which side you are on, we will try to help you out.

GUARDS

Ben McLemore, SG, Sacramento Kings (ESPN: 16.3 per cent; CBS: 45 per cent): A guy getting 34 minutes per game on a decent Western Conference team should be owned. McLemore’s 12 points per game is nice, however he doesn’t do anything else (although, in fairness, he’s shown some hops lately, as you can see in the video below). Still, he makes for a great plug and play with a nice match-up especially because Rudy Gay is starting to pick up double teams.

Jason Terry, SG, Houston Rockets (ESPN: 5.5 per cent; CBS: 10 per cent): The Jet is back, averaging over 17 points in the last three games and hitting a good amount of threes. If he is returning to the productivity of his younger days, then he is a must pick up. The major concern is that when Patrick Beverley and Isaiah Canaan return from injury, Terry’s minutes could drop. Nonetheless, Jet is definitely worth a short-haul flight currently.

C.J. Watson, PG, Indiana Pacers (ESPN: 3.7 per cent; CBS: 4 per cent): The Pacers announced that George Hill is out for a few more weeks, so Watson should be owned until then. Watson has only been back for five games after his own injury this season, but is continuing to improve every game.

FORWARDS

Kyle O’Quinn, PF/C, Orlando Magic (ESPN: 4.2 per cent; CBS: 21 per cent): O’Quinn is another player that’s value is linked to an injury. With Nikola Vucevic out (but expected back soon), O’Quinn is a must own by all Vucevic owners. On Tuesday in a game which the Magic should have won, O’Quinn had 21 points and 11 rebounds in 27 minutes, but then only played seven minutes on Wednesday. If he gets more consistent PT, then he might be worth a pick up in standard leagues. But for now, Vucevic owners really need to look into grabbing O’Quinn.

Donatas Motiejunas, PF, Houston Rockets (ESPN: 12.5 per cent; CBS: 43 per cent): A player on the rise, Motiejunas has had five or more rebounds in 14 of 19 games this season. If you need help on the glass, he is a great pick up. He’ll also score a little but outside of that does not offer much help.

CENTRES

Kevin Garnett, C/PF, Brooklyn Nets (ESPN: 13.1 per cent; CBS: 37 per cent): Obviously, Garnet is not the player he once, but he remains a major rebound threat as he is averaging 8.4 in just 24 minutes. If the Nets start to play him more as the season wears on and they’re making a playoff push, then he will be a double digit rebound guy again. We’d like to see KG’s scoring go up, but you can deal with it for now. He is also averaging 1.8 steals in his last five games.

Kris Humphries, C/PF, Washington Wizards (ESPN: 3.4 per cent; CBS: 14 per cent): A player on the rise, Humphries is looking young again. After scoring 20 points Friday and pulling down 20 rebounds Wednesday, he looks to be a legitimate double-double threat again. Humphries is becoming a nice sixth man for the Wizards, but the key here will be whether his minutes stay up when Nene returns.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below who your favourite Fantasy basketball waiver wire pick of the week is.

2014-15 Top 10 Fantasy Basketball Rookies

December 1, 2014 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
As we all know, Wiggins and his potential went first, and Parker went second to the Bucks. On paper, this looks like a perfect fit as Parker slides in as a starter and focal point of the offense from the get go. His offensive game is extremely polished, and he’s capable from scoring from anywhere on the floor. Parker is also an adept passer and capable rebounder, though he’s unlikely to play in the post all the time given Milwaukee’s collection of bigs that need minutes. Don’t go overboard with your expectations — he’s still a rookie after all — but 15 points and 7-to-8 boards a game seems doable.

The Wire Troll: Brian Roberts Shooting the Lights Out

November 29, 2014 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Bradley is a starter that’s averaging over 14 points per game, which means he needs to be owned. He’s a really solid player that is getting pretty big minutes and doesn’t do a lot of bad things. You would like to see Bradley’s peripheral stats go up across the board and he’s not the best shooter, but if you need a boost in points, he’s a great pick up.

The Wire Troll: Brandan Wright Making a Play for More PT

November 22, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (2)
Brooks started Friday and put up his second straight 12-point effort thanks to a pair of treys. He’s recorded a steal in each of the last three games and given that he’s the only active PG in the Windy City right now, he’s worth playing until his teammates get healthy.

The Wire Troll: Lavoy Allen Standing Tall

November 15, 2014 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Caldwell-Pope has been a nice surprise for the Pistons this season as the former eighth overall pick has really stepped up his game. One of the nicest surprises from this young man has been his three-point shooting. He has made 16 of his last 36 attempts from beyond the arc over the last six games. You would like to see KCP’s other numbers go up, but if you are looking for a three-point specialist, he may be your guy, even if his shooting is inconsistent. He has had games of 1-for-6, 0-for-6 and 1-for-8 from downtown, but when he gets it going, he gets it going. The bottom line is any guy averaging 36 minutes needs to be owned — especially one with this kind of upside.
