2017-18 Fantasy Basketball Week 16 Waiver Wire

on

The All-Star game is nearing and the captains have been picked their teams. Some interesting choices were made by the both LeBron James and Stephen Curry.

The most TMZ worthy pick is LeBron taking Kyrie Irving. After everything that went down this summer that was a very interesting pick.

Bron also was able to pair himself with Kevin Durant giving his team arguably the two best players in the NBA, including himself.

Curry, on the other hand, was able to get himself a nice team including the Greek Freak, real teammate Draymond Green and West Coast rival James Harden.

It will be fun to see these players who are in different conferences team up in this game. Of course, it will be playground ball, but fun nonetheless.

Enough about the All-Star Game, lets get to this week’s waiver wire targets.

All players mentioned are owned in 50% or less of Yahoo leagues.

Dejounte Murray, PG, San Antonio Spurs

Murray was recently named the starting point guard for the Spurs. He takes over for Tony Parker who has done very little to warrant keeping the job.

Murray takes over at a very good time for Fantasy owners. With Kawhi Leonard out, Murray’s usage should be pretty high, making him a must-own.

Marcus Morris, SF/PF, Boston Celtics

Over the last six games, Morris has averaged 14 points, six points and 1.4 3-pointers a game. This is easily his best stretch of games this season.

In deeper leagues, he is definitely worth a look. However, in more shallow leagues he is probably not going to be consistent enough to warrant an add, but I’m OK if you want to ride the hot hand.

John Henson, PF/C, Milwaukee Bucks

Henson is not going to wow you with his scoring or even his round totals as a center. What he can do is help you win the block category each and every week.

The Bucks center is tied for 11th in blocks in the NBA this season, so if you are in need of blocks for your team snatch him up.
