2018-19 Fantasy Basketball Week 10 Waiver Wire


The waiver wire may not be loaded this week, but, as always, there are still moves to be made. With Week 10 upon us, new players have emerged into fantasy relevance that were previously not in the rotation. Player values change every week, with a marathon of games, injuries, and rotation changes throughout the season.

No matter what position your fantasy team may be in, checking the weekly waiver wire is a necessity. There will always be a fluid group of fantasy contributors that can bring production to your team. Usage rates change all season long for all types of players. This makes it important to consider all players, even those of little to no name recognition.

Players listed are owned in 50% of leagues or less.

Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG, Sacramento Kings

Not to be confused with the Pacer’s SF Bojan Bogdanovic, Bogdan has been thriving off the Kings’ bench. The sharpshooter is averaging 16.9 PPG, 4.1 APG, and 3.5 RPG in the past 13 games. This production comes from a Kings team that is becoming more and more competitive, likely a good sign of things to come for Bogdanovic.

With his recent shooting prowess, Bogdanovic is easily the best player currently unowned in most leagues. Adding Bogdanovic would bring sufficient stats to multiple shooting categories.

Juan Hernangomez, SF/PF, Denver Nuggets

Paul Millsap expected to be sidelined for a substantial amount of time with a broken toe. This opens the door for Hernangomez, who has already started 14 games this season for an injured Will Barton. During this span, he has averaged 12.9 PPG, 7.1 RPG, and 2.1 threes on 32.7 MPG.

Hernangomez should continue to produce as long as Barton and Millsap are on the bench. It would be no surprise if Nuggets decide to give him big minutes even when they return, given his success. Consider Hernangomez to be a steal if he is available.

Kelly Olynyk, PF/C, Miami Heat

Olynyk has been on a hot streak as of late. In the past six games, Olynyk has averaged 14 PPG, 7.2 RPG, 2.7 APG, and 1.5 SPG in 27 MPG. Unfortunately, this comes on less than 40% FG percentage. While this may present some risk, Olynyk’s overall stat line leaves a lot a fantasy team can work with.

Although Olynyk may come off the bench, he has a large enough usage rate to be successful. Olynyk may not be the most attractive option, but he is more than capable of consistent productive outings.

Markieff Morris, PF, Washington Wizards

With a potential (if not likely) trade looming, grabbing Morris this week may be a smart move. Morris has played relatively well this season, averaging 11.6 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 0.8 SPG, 0.7 BPG, and 80% FT in 26.5 MPG.

He may not be the most exciting player, but his consistency may prove to be beneficial to fantasy teams. This could especially be the case if he is shipped to a team where he will have more responsibility.
