Weekly Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Pickups
Hey Fantasy Hoopers, each Monday we will provide you with some players to target off the waiver wire, the percentage numbers indicate ownership. For those of you playing in weekly leagues take note that the Hawks and Nets play just once this week and the Pistons have only two games.
* Randy Foye (34%) Last week I said I was not a huge fan of Randy Foye, but at this point he does not look like he is slowing down as he owns the third highest efficiency rating over the last five games at 21.6%, behind only James Harden and Demar DeRozan, and he should continue to see plenty of minutes with some recent injuries to some Nuggets players and Andre Miller is no longer a part of the rotation. Foye is averaging 23.6 points on 55% shooting from the field and and four 3-pointers per game over the last five contests.
* Brian Roberts (5%) has not quite lived up to what he produced in five games as a starter last season (12.6 points and 10 assists), but the playing time should continue to be there and Roberts will have some favorable matchups coming up in the next two weeks, including the Spurs, Warriors, Kings, Pistons, Cavs, and TWolves whom all whom are in the top 10 of most Fantasy Points allowed to point guards on the season.
* Marco Belinelli (13%) leads the NBA in three point field goal percentage at 50.4% for those of you in roto leagues looking for a bump in 3-point production.
