2023-24 Fantasy Basketball Week 10 Waiver Wire

Taurean Prince, SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers (15% owned)

Taurean Prince has been on a hot streak over his last 8 games, impressively averaging 13.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, along with 0.8 steals and blocks each, and a remarkable 3.6 threes per game. His shooting efficiency shines through with a solid 50.7% from the field and 83.3% from the free-throw line. This performance has catapulted him to 6th-round value in nine-category leagues.

While Prince's shooting might cool down, his substantial playing time—averaging 33.2 minutes in the last 8 games—suggests his three-point streaming value could persist. Week 10 presents a prime streaming opportunity for the Los Angeles Lakers, with a three-game stretch over four nights.

The action starts against the Charlotte Hornets on Thursday, followed by challenging matchups against the Minnesota Timberwolves and New Orleans Hornets in a back-to-back scenario on Saturday and Sunday.

Now's the time to snatch up Prince in Week 10, especially while he's in top form. He's not just a short-term pickup; for those in deeper leagues, he could be a valuable long-term asset. Secure him now and adapt your strategy as needed later.

Kyle Anderson, SF/PF, Minnesota Timberwolves (26% owned)

Kyle Anderson, stepping up for the Minnesota Timberwolves in Karl-Anthony Towns' absence, took on the forward position and made the most of it. Logging an impressive 28.7 minutes, he delivered valuable stats: ten points, five rebounds, five assists, and one block.

Known as 'Slow Mo,' Anderson is renowned for his ability to contribute across the board with rebounds, steals, blocks, and those handy out-of-position assists, a boon for punt points lineups.

While Karl-Anthony Towns isn't expected to be out for an extended period, it's always wise to stay updated. If Towns remains sidelined, Anderson could be a smart pickup. His potential starting role in Towns' absence may turn him into an invaluable asset for your team.

While he's not an automatic addition, Anderson could be the sleeper pick you need, especially in deeper leagues. Keep an eye on the situation and be ready to make a move if the opportunity arises.

Aaron Nesmith, SF/PF, Indiana Pacers (25% owned)

Aaron Nesmith's recent performance for the Indiana Pacers has been a mixed bag. Although he snapped his seven-game double-digit scoring streak with just 3 points against the Orlando Magic, he still shows promise. Over the last eight games, Nesmith has maintained solid averages of 12.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks, and an impressive 2.6 three-pointers per game.

This combination of elite three-point shooting and defensive prowess has propelled him to an 8th-round value in nine category leagues during this period.

Season-wise, Nesmith holds a 9th-round value, bolstered by his exceptionally low turnover rate of just 0.8 per game. While he typically shines as a three-point and steals contributor, increased playing time could see him add even more value, particularly with his defensive stats.

For those in deeper leagues or seeking to capitalize on his low turnover impact, Nesmith is a smart pickup. His current form makes him a valuable asset, especially if you need a boost in three-pointers and defensive categories.

Dorian Finney-Smith, SF/PF, Brooklyn Nets (20% owned)

For fantasy managers seeking an early-week streaming advantage, team schedules are crucial. The Brooklyn Nets, playing four games with a beneficial three-game stretch starting Tuesday, stand out in Week 10. They'll first encounter the struggling Detroit Pistons, then the formidable Milwaukee Bucks back-to-back, before taking on the Washington Wizards on Friday.

Notably, the Nets' Week 10 schedule ranks as the second-best, just behind the Boston Celtics.

Dorian Finney-Smith (DFS) emerges as a prime streaming target. In his recent three games, DFS has posted an impressive 11.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.7 three-pointers per game, averaging 27.3 minutes on the floor. His early-season form peaked when Nic Claxton was sidelined, but he experienced fluctuations upon moving to the bench after Claxton's return.

However, DFS is finding his rhythm again, making this the ideal moment to add or stream him, especially with the Nets' favorable schedule. Grab DFS and hope for extended playtime, as he could be a significant contributor to your fantasy squad this week.
