2017-18 Fantasy Basketball Week 7 Waiver Wire


I hope everybody had a fantastic Thanksgiving full of Family, Friends and Food. Now that it is over, it is time to keep trucking along with your Fantasy Basketball team. To help with that here is this week’s 2017-18 Fantasy Basketball Week 7 Waiver Wire.

We have had a lot of injuries over the last week or so.

  • First we start in Denver where Paul Milsap is likely going to have wrist surgery and out indefinitely.
  • Patrick Beverly is out for the rest of the season after having microfracture surgery.
  • Rudy Gobert is going to miss a few weeks with a right knee injury.
  • Mike Conley is out in definitely with an Achilles injury.

These injuries are making the waiver wire one of the more interesting ones of the season. So let’s get to it!

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

Austin Rivers, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers

If somehow Lou Williams is available in your league then he is the one you really want, but at an 89% ownership rate, its doubtful. Now onto Rivers.

He is going to get a bit more run with Beverly out too. He is a streaky player, but can give you a boost in points and threes for sure.

The other player to consider stashing if you have an open IR spot is Milos Teodsic. Right now he is still considered out indefinitely, but when he returns should get a full load of minutes with out Beverly.

Wilson Chandler, SG/SF/PF, Denver Nuggets

I honestly think the new rotation without Milsap is going to be different from game to game. However, Chandler should get the biggest boost in value here.

The Nuggets can play a bit of small ball by playing him at the four. Chandler is also a streaky player, but we have seen in years past where he is able to help in all categories.

A deeper league pickup is Kenneth Faried. When they need size, he will likely enter the lineup more. He is a rebound monster, but as we saw this past week already he won’t play a lot in some matchups where they need more perimeter help.

Mario Chalmers, PG, Memphis Grizzlies

Chalmers is not very good, but he is starting and getting over 30 minutes a game with Conley out. Chalmers will be very up and down with his shot and in relation his points.

However, he will be able to help out those in need of assists and steals as he is averaging 7.3 and 2.3 oer the last week without Conley in the lineup.

Tim Frazier, PG, Washington Wizards

John Wall has been dealing with a knee injury most of the season. He has been playing through it and overall very well, but now is getting an MRI.

There is no guarantee Wall misses an extended time, but if you are a Wall owner you may want to stash Frazier just in case this happens.
