2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 11 Weekly Planner

on

Welcome to the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 11 Weekly Planner!

The sports calendar is beginning to slow down at the halfway point of the season. The NBA All-Star break is right around the corner, football is over, and baseball… well it’s just baseball.

It seems like this week, the All-Star game was all the rage. Snubs, studs, duds, and much more were the talk of the town. Guys like Zach LaVine and Julius Randle were blessed enough to make their first teams.

While guys like Chris Paul, Lebron James, Kawhi Leonard, and others continue to be repeat offenders for the game.

Guys like Devin Booker, Mike Conley, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander were not so lucky. All considered studs who were snubbed, unfortunately.

But it happens, now enough of the All-Star talk, let’s dive in this 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 11 Weekly Planner!

Pickup of the Week

Goran Dragic, PG, Miami Heat (30.9% owned ESPN)

After missing nine games due to injury recovery, the Miami Heat welcomed back a familiar face in Dragic just two games ago. He looked a tad rusty upon return, however last game against the Jazz he looked sharp.

The veteran guard logged 33 minutes while chipping in 26 points, three rebounds, two assists, and two steals. That equates to a nice 44 fantasy points in H2H formats. Great play in his second game back from an extended absence.

Dragic’s return comes in a timely manner as well, the Miami Heat have won seven of their last 10 and are currently fighting their way into an NBA playoff spot. Dragic’s return could be the final spark that puts them over the help

Dragic is a must-add for me in fantasy formats. Before the injuries, the veteran guard was a top-100 option. An easy schedule, a surging team, and a high usage role should help Dragic reclaim former glory.

Team to Target

Indiana Pacers

One of only four teams to play three games this week is enough in any argument for these guys to be a team you target. But the schedule over that course of games is one of the main reasons why. Let’s take a look.

  • Monday @ 76ers
  • Wednesday @ Cavaliers
  • Thursday vs Nuggets

Starting with the 76ers, off the jump you can see that they are one of the league’s fastest pace teams, they rank 8th in the league. Playing at nearly 104 possessions per game, which subsequently is the same amount as the Pacers.

To make things better is that they rank terribly against shooting guards. Guys like Jeremy Lamb, who should be on your waiver wire should have a field day against them. Lamb should be in for some major minutes and upside against the 76ers.

The Pacers will also get to play against the Cavaliers and the Nuggets, both of which are not “pace-up” teams. But, the Pacers rank 8th so it’s likely going to be a pace-neutral game for both. Here’s what position you should be targeting against these two teams.

Cavaliers

  • Shooting Guards
  • Center
  • Power Forward

Nuggets

  • Point Guard
  • Shooting Guard

Guys like Jeremy Lamb, T.J. McConnell, and Justin Holiday all rank high this week for me. Each of the three should be excellent streams, and all three should be easily found on the waiver.

Team to Avoid

Minnesota Timberwolves

All too often it seems like this team is on the list of teams to avoid for the week. From what I can remember, this may be the third time I’ve written about the lowly Timberwolves, but with good reason.

Well, for this week it’s the fact they are the only team that plays one game and that’s all. I know the schedule is blush and vibrant but one game? That’s the reason why you can’t play them.

To make matters worse, it’s not like the team has many fantasy-relevant bodies outside of Karl Anthony-Town. De’Angelo Russell has been marked out for a few weeks, and now Malik Beasly has been suspended for 12 games.

Anthony Edwards is a clear winner, but he is not a start this week. In one game he won’t top 50 fantasy points. You can get 50 points from a waiver guy at least across two games. The Timberwolves are the clear sit this week.

Week 11 Biggest Movers

Derrick Jones Jr, Portland Trailblazers

Quitely one of the hottest names in fantasy basketball is Derrick Jones Jr. Coming in at only 22% owned, Jones is an underrated not often talked about fantasy option. Over the past month, Jones has been a staple for a streaking Blazers team that’s missing several key options.

Guys like CJ McCollum and Jusif Nurkic are still missing, leaving Damian Lillard as the lone scorer on the team. The veteran guard Jones Jr has stepped in the help carry the load on both sides of the ball.

Since his return on February 7th, Jones Jr has scored 20 or more fantasy points 7 of 10 times and has scored 27 or more in five consecutive games. He’s doing that while logging impressive high-level defensive numbers.

Injuries to Monitor

And finally, the worst part of the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 10 Weekly Planner, some injuries we need to monitor:
