2019-20 Fantasy Basketball Week 17/18 Waiver Wire


Welcome to the 2019-20 Fantasy Basketball Week 17/18 Waiver Wire.

We’re back just before the deadline to give you a few speculative adds before the break. The trade deadline certainly shook things up again as the NBA likes to do and it’s left us looking for those players who will be tallying more minutes. With the All-Star Break right around the corner, I’d also start to look around your league for some panicking owners who may not like where their players ended.

The focus will be on players that are less than 40% owned in Yahoo leagues with some over 40% you’ll need to check your league’s availability.

I’ll try to keep each waiver wire column focused on some new names, but previous columns contain worthwhile targets as well who may still be available in your league…assuming they don’t read this column.

Jabari Parker, SF/PF, Sacramento Kings (17%)

After the being dealt to the Kings at the deadline Parker expressed his interest in playing on Monday night. He was held out of Monday’s contest and looks to be ready to suit up on Wednesday night vs. Dallas.

I’m excited about this change of scenery for Parker who was the 2nd overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft. His playing time will come contested though as Bjelica has been outstanding this year for the Sacramento Kings. It’s hard to imagine trading for a guy who makes 6.5 million only to not play him, but then again, the Kings aren’t exactly known for making smart salary cap moves, I’d know.

Seth Curry, PG/SG, Dallas Mavericks (16%)

When you’re hot, you’re hot and Seth, not Steph, has been on fire from three-point land. He’s accounted for 61 points and 12 three’s over the last three games.

He’s taking advantage of some injuries on the Mavericks, but Coach Carlisle is a smart guy and will certainly ride the hot hand. Curry is getting nearly thirty minutes a game and is someone I’m very interested in stashing before the All-Star Break.

Ky Bowman, PG, Golden State Warriors, (10%)

D’Angelo Russell, gone. Alec Burks, gone. Ky Bowman, in the starting lineup. I’ll admit that Ky Bowman isn’t exactly jumping off the stat sheet so far. He is, however, going to be the guy holding the fort until Curry returns. T

next few weeks are going to be critical for him in determining what his role for this team will be down the stretch and possibly into the future. Keep in mind that his value will be it’s strongest in the next few weeks as he’ll be the one distributing the basketball as the team’s only true point guard.

He’s a role of the dice play, but if you’re reading this I’m sure that’s what you’re looking for.
