2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 6 Waiver Wire

on

Welcome to the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 6 Waiver Wire.

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

I will try to keep each wavier wire column focused on new names, only touching on previous players if they may still be widely available.

With position eligibility being different in each league, this column will just reference the positions as a generic Guard, Forward, and Center.

Dominate your Fantasy Basketball league with customized team advice using the Fantasy Pros MyPlaybook.

Immanuel Quickley, G, New York Knicks

Quickley has seen his minutes fluctuate all season, but as the graphic shows above when he plays, he balls!

He had a career-high 31 points on Sunday in a stellar game against Portland.

It is tough to trust any rookies in Tom Thibodeau’s system, but his numbers are hard to ignore.

With the Knicks still looking for a contributing PG, Thibodeau could turn to Quickley soon.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, F, Los Angeles Lakers

There is currently no hotter three-point shooter in the NBA than KCP.

He is shooting 55.6% on the season, and average three of them a game over his last seven.

During that seven-game span, he is also contributing in rebounds (3 RPG), assists (1.3 APG), and steals (1.1 SPG)

With the depth the Lakers have, KCP won’t put up consistent numbers for you, but if you need three, KCP is your guy.

Isaiah Roby, F/C, Oklahoma City Thunder

Coming off his first career double-double, Roby has filled in admirably for Al Horford.

Roby has scored in double digits, five out of the last seven games he has played.

During that span, he also has averaged, 6.7 rebounds.

Horford is due back soon, but with the youth movement going on in OKC, he could be moved at the deadline.

If Horford is moved, Roby would be the starter for the Thunder.

Delon Wright, G, Detroit Pistons

With both Killian Hayes and Derrick Rose out, Wright has been handling the PG duties.

Last week, he averaged 9.25 PPG, 5.25 RPG, 3.25 APG,  and 2.6 SPG.

The steals alone are enough to start Wright in deep leagues.

Hayes is out indefinitely, and Rose is always in and out of the lineup, so Wright should keep seeing minutes.
