2017-18 Fantasy Basketball Week 15 Waiver Wire


As we pass the midway point of the season and near the All-Star Break it is really time to look at the landscape of your team. Are you one of the best in your league? Are you a contender and likely making the playoffs? Or, are you fighting for one of those last playoff spots? All questions you need to ask yourself as these will determine the moves you make as the season moves on.

Richard Savill and I talk about this on our Fantasy Basketball Podcast this week, but to sum it up you can take a bit more risk as a team who is a front-runner than one who needs help now to make the playoffs.

Every week there are players who can help you win in the short term, which is important, but as I discussed last week, there are young players you can look at now who will be big difference makers post-All-Star Break.

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

2017-18 Fantasy Basketball Week 15 Waiver Wire

Kyle Anderson, PF, San Antonio Spurs

With the unfortunate news that Kawhi Leonard is out indefinitely again, Anderson is the guy you want to snatch up off waivers.

When Kawhi missed time the first part of the season, Anderson did not light it up in any category. However, his overall play makes him a very valuable asset to own.

Wesley Johnson, SG/SF, Los Angeles Clippers

Johnson’s value is tied directly to DeAndre Jordon missing time as the Clippers seem to be going small without him. Jordan will miss at least one more game, so Johnson is a good streaming pick up and DFS play there.

Over the last week, while Jordan has been out of the lineup, Johnson has averaged 13 points, six rebounds, 1.3 steals and 2.5 3-pointers. That is definitely enough to make him useful for your team.

Milos Teodosic, PG, Los Angeles Clippers

Another Clippers makes this list and he is a repeat offender here too. Teodosic did not do so well the first time he returned from his injury, but this time he is playing well.

He is averaging 12 points, 6.3 assists and over three rebounds and 3-pointers a game. This is more along the lines of what we expected from him before so it’s nice to see this kind of production.

Scoop him up now especially if you need help in assists which is a hard category to get help in this late in the season.
