on

Welcome to another edition of the 2019-20 Fantasy Basketball Week 3 Waiver Wire.

At the beginning of each week, I’ll discuss potential waiver wire additions, deep league fliers and stash options.

The focus will be on players that are less than 40% owned in Yahoo leagues.

Dwayne Bacon, SG, Charlotte Hornets (13%)

Falling off fantasy owner’s radar and rosters last week, Dwayne Bacon resurfaced in a big way over the weekend, albeit against the Golden State Warriors. Nonetheless, Bacon seemed to have his way Saturday night on his way to 25 points, six rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Bacon brings not only great potential fantasy team names, but the ability to get to the rim with ease and shoot a high percentage.

Danuel House Jr., SG/SF, Houston Rockets (38%)

Forcing his way onto the column this week is the hot shooting Houston Rockets guard. House Jr. has now scored double-digit points in four of six games this season. He’s also contributing on the glass, collecting five or more rebounds in four of six.

Harden and Westbrook continue to draw the eyes of multiple defenders when they attack the paint and that leaves House Jr. getting open looks and making the defense pay. He’s shooting over 45% from three on 33 attempts and averaging just under 30 minutes per game. Making him a suitable option for the end of the roster with potential upside on any given night given his three-point attempts.

Troy Brown Jr., SF, Washington Wizards (10%)

The former 2018 1st round pick made his season debut on October 30th versus the Houston Rockets. He tallied 14 points and three rebounds in just over 16 minutes. The former Oregon Duck stand out is having his minutes restricted as he eases his way back from a calf injury.

While Brown is coming off the bench now, he will more than likely return to the starting lineup after a couple more limited minute games. He will look to pick up where he left off at the end of last season where he averaged over 10 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists during 30 minutes per game over the last 10 games.

If you have the roster spot, grab and stash Brown before his minutes and ownership increase.

Eric Paschall, PF, Golden State Warriors(35%)

When you have a player score 20+ points in two of three games it’s time to pay attention. That being said, it’s time to start paying attention to nearly all of the Golden State Warriors. This team is going to start experimenting with lineup combinations and playing time while they adjust to the Curry and Green injuries.

Paschall has filled in admirably for Draymond Green so far this season. Contributing in more ways than one and receiving constant admiration from his Coach Steve Kerr. Expect Paschall to be involved even when Draymond returns.

Nemanja Bjelica, Sacramento Kings, PF (11%)

It’s been a tough start to the season for the Sacramento Kings, but not for Nemanja Bjelica! That’s right, the 5th year power forward from Serbia needs to be rostered. He is taking full advantage of the playing time bump with Marvin Bagley being out with an injured finger. With Bagley slated to miss another month, Bjelica can be a nightly contributor for your fantasy lineup.

Over the last four games, Bjelica is averaging 11 points, six rebounds, three assists and a steal while shooting over 10 for 17 from behind the arc. I expect this kind of production to continue for the next month and possibly even season long with Bjelica carving out a role for himself this season.
