2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 15 Drop List

on

Welcome everyone to the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 15 Drop List. In this week’s article, I have just a few random thoughts I would like to share.

Plus, I will be providing a few players that should be dropped from fantasy teams. There is also one player that has found himself in the danger zone (uh-oh).

Now more than ever is when everyone needs to start getting players on your team that can produce.

We are getting close to the final stretch, so there is no reason why we should still be keeping injured players on our teams (Mitchell Robinson; 60%, LaMelo Ball; 70%). They’re both gone for the year, so get rid of them for fantasy producers.

Enough with the introduction, and let’s get into this thing. So without further ado, welcome to the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 15 Drop List.

Killian Hayes, PG/SG, Detroit Pistons – 15%
Current Ranking: 506

Killian Hayes has finally returned to the court, and it was not pretty. He played only 20 minutes and shot the ball only three times.

Killian did not make any of those baskets, he did provide five rebounds and three assists, but that is it. Do not waste a roster spot on him at this point of the season, Killian is still trying to get used to the NBA game flow.

Carmelo Anthony, SF/PF, Portland TrailBlazers – 49%
Current Ranking: 108

It hurts me to put Carmelo here because I have been a huge fan of his since he came into the league, but he has been getting worse by the week.

Last week he was ranked #267 and only averaged 10 points on 36% shooting while also adding 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists.

In his past 5 games, Melo has only scored over 10 points just twice in these games and has yet to go over five rebounds in any of those games.

As of right now he is just not performing, so it would be best to send him on his way.

Derrick Rose, PG/SG, New York Knicks – 53%
Current Ranking: 243

There is no reason to have Derrick Rose on your fantasy teams right now. He is not performing well, often injured, and just flat out getting outplayed by the other guards on the team (Immanuel Quickley). In category leagues, he is not doing enough to warrant a spot. Derrick Rose is averaging 13 points, 2.2 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.4 blocks, and 1.7 turnovers.

His minutes have gone down in two straight games (25 or less), and he has failed to score more than seven points in those games as well.

If his minutes go back up to around 30 minutes then I would suggest taking another look at him, but I don’t think that is happening anytime soon.

Dwight Howard, C, Philadelphia 76ers – 32%
Current Ranking: 141

Joel Embiid is back, but he won’t be playing every game just yet. Once he does get back to playing every game, Dwight’s value will drop significantly. With Embiid playing, Howard only played 19 minutes. He was able to score seven points(1/1 FG’s, 5/7 FT’s), plus notch seven rebounds, a steal, and a block.

Without Embiid last night, Howard played 24 minutes and scored 9 points(4/6 FG’s, 1/2 FT’s). He also added 12 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 block.

Once you start seeing Embiid out there every game for the 76ers, you can drop Dwight Howard safely. Until then, keep him on your team.

James Wiseman, C, Golden State Warriors – 65%
CR: 239

James Wiseman is struggling as a rookie and it’s time to start thinking of other options on your fantasy team. He has only scored 10+ points in three of his last six games, which isn’t the main issue.

The main issue is that he is averaging just 5.8 rebounds on the year. For a seven-footer, this is subpar, Wiseman has failed to get 10+ rebounds in his last 9 games.

Random Thoughts

-Do not drop Gordon Hayward (SF/PF, Charlotte Hornets) just yet. He should only miss three to four weeks. He can come in handy late in the season.

-Drop Josh Hart (SG/SF, New Orleans Pelicans, 31%). He has a torn UCL in his right thumb, and he will miss significant time.

-Why is Jaren Jackson Jr. at 76% ownership? He has been gone all year and won’t be back till the end of April. More than likely, Jaren will be on a minute restriction when he returns, so I have no idea why everyone still has him on their team.

That should do it for the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 15 Drop List. I hope you enjoyed and I will be seeing you next week for Week 16.
