Fantasy Basketball Pickups: Adds short-term and speculative pickups to pay off the waiver cord
The assignment wire is still up for selection, which Fantasy Basketball managers should be grateful for. Several recently recommended players are still widely available. However, instead of reiterating the status of players I’ve already suggested during the first several weeks of the season, this week’s column focuses on several short-term broadcast options and long-term speculative picks.
Without further ado, here are eight players to add to Week 7.
Bogdan Bogdanovic, Atlanta Hawks (49 percent listed)
Bogdanovic (knee) has not played a game so far this season and it is not clear when he will be ready to make his debut this season. However, it is a proven good when it comes to statistical production, and is able to contribute significantly across multiple categories. Trusting players with proven track records is generally a sound strategy, and Bogdanovic will likely be picked in most leagues by the time he is healthy enough to make his 2022-23 debut.
Craig has been making the most of the recent increase in playing time minus him Cameron Johnson (knee), he’ll probably miss at least another month. Over the last five games, Craig has averaged 12.2 points, 6.8 boards, 2.2 triples, 1.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 blocks in 29.2 minutes, making him a serviceable short-term option for most leagues.
Over the last seven games, Williams has averaged 12.4 points, 3.9 assists, 3.3 boards and 1.1 triples in 29.1 minutes. It is clear that the bullish wing is at the bottom Gilgos Alexander Tea And the Josh Gede In offensive click order. However, he does well off the bench in a role that provides him with a decent utilization rate. As such, it’s worth adding speculation just in case.
Kid Cunningham (Shane) is out indefinitely, thus opening the door for other presses to make an impact, especially on the offensive end. Never shy about letting his shots fly, Burks has scored 15 or more points in six of his last seven starts while averaging 16.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.1 triples, 1.7 assists and 1.1 steals in 21.3 minutes over this last stretch. Those who need help in the scoring department should feel safe turning to Burks, at least for the time being, especially if his playing time continues to increase.
Across the last six contests, Martin has averaged 15.0 points, 6.2 boards, 3.0 dice, 2.3 triples, 1.5 steals and 1.2 blocks in 39.5 minutes per night. Jimmy Butler (Knee) It may be close to his return to the lineup, but until that happens, Martin is a great option to stream. Those already on the rosters might be wise to add Martin if Butler continues to be injured or has a relapse once he returns.
despite Pascal Siakam It seems that (al-Muqaddaba) is close to returning to the active squad, Scotty Barnes (Knee) Dealing with a minor injury. On top of that, most of Toronto’s forwards have been bitten by injury, and Young has been called out to play a decent proportion of minutes at low drop lately. In fact, over the last five games, Young has turned back the clock by averaging 12.6 points, 7.2 boards, 3.2 assists and 2.2 steals in 30.2 minutes a night. Even if it’s only one match period, Young is worth considering in most formats.
Joel Embiid (by foot) He will miss his third consecutive match on Friday evening, and the injury may continue in the short term and possibly in the long term. Meanwhile, Reid appears to have replaced the veteran Montreal Harrell The backup center behind the two-game averages of 12.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 2.5 blocks in 26.5 minutes. Those who already made Embiid rosters might want to add Reed, even if it’s only for broadcast purposes on nights that Embiid sits.
Bryant managed averages of 10.3 points, 5.7 boards and 0.7 blocks in 15.7 minutes through his first three appearances of the season. He hasn’t had much luck staying healthy over the past several seasons, but with the Lakers desperate for help despite Anthony Davis Playing at a high level, Bryant can play an important role for himself going forward. Bryant offers a particularly interesting speculative addition.
