The following list of players is ALL Rostered in UNDER 40% of Yahoo leagues.
Before we dive into the streaming chart, let's take a look at 3 Waiver Wire Adds, if available.
Waiver Wire Pickups
Cole Anthony, Magic (42% Rostered)
Strengths: Points, 3's, Assists
A devasting torn ACL happened to Markelle Fultz a few nights ago. It's sad to see this happened. As always, who's the next man up in Orlando? Quite simply, " Cole World '' and we're living in it. ADD HIM IMMEDIATELY! He started in the 2nd half against Cleveland 1/6. Although Cole shot an inefficient 4/12, he was the 2nd player leading in mins (32). I'm not concerned about MCW supplanting minutes from him. He may not help you much in the FG% department. Expect Cole Anthony to shoot better than FG .30%. There will be some growing pains with the rookie, but why not take a flier on him? Lastly it was just announced, that Coach Clifford said "Cole won't be able to handle same minutes load as Markelle Fultz". He needs to be rostered in all Dynasty, 12 man, and potentially 10 man leagues.
Waiver Priority: Use #2 Priority
Faab Budget Worth: Around 18% or more
Shake Milton, Sixers (33% Rostered Yahoo)
Strengths: Points, Steals Assists, FT%, 3's
Sixers is in a heap of trouble at the moment. Seth Curry had ankle soreness and did not play last night. The Sixers also found out right around tip-off that Seth tested positive for COVID-19. Shake Milton needs added universally. The last 5 Games posted Top 90 Value in 9 CAT Leagues. Milton Averaged FG% .49 / FT% .85 / 17 PTS / 4.6 AST in those games. He needs to be rostered in all Dynasty and 12 man leagues. Shallow Leagues keep on the watch list.
Waiver Priority: Use #4 Priority
Faab Budget Worth: Around 10% or more
Semi Ojeleye, Celtics (1% Rostered Yahoo)
Jump in the Deep end with me. Semi " Auto " Ojeleye started the second half over Daniel Theis on 1/4. The next game Coach Stevens decided to go back to Theis. Either way, Grant Williams, Robert Williams, and Tristan Thompson are all quarantined at the moment. That will leave more minutes to come to Semi Ojeleye. We may see Boston play small ball for about a week or so. Unless Tacko Fall comes out? Semi Needs to be Rostered in all Dynasty formats. A stream option in deep leagues. You can pass on him in shallow formats.
Waiver Priority: Save Your Priority For Someone Else
Faab Budget Worth: Around 2% or more
5 Players Rostered Under 8% And Last Game Stats:
De'Anthony Melton (8% Rostered Yahoo) - 3 STL 1 BLK
Gary Harris (7% Rostered Yahoo) - 40 MINS 15 PTS
THT (6% Rostered Yahoo) - LAST 3 GAMES 20+ MINS
Desmond Bane (6% Rostered Yahoo) - 2 SNIPES 6 REB
Jarred Vanderbilt (5% Rostered Yahoo) - 10 PTS 10 REB
Waiver Wire Mentioned last week:
De'Andre Hunter, Tyus Jones, Gary Harris
Deep Stream Options Week 4
Please Note: We have a column labeled "Thurs", which highlights players who play on slow game days this week. 10 Options under 15% Rostered
Pacers & Sixers have 5 games next week. Justin Holiday is rostered in 22% leagues. He's worth a look if available.
