2023-24 Fantasy Basketball Week 11 Waiver Wire

Trayce Jackson-Davis, PF/C, Golden State Warriors (33% owned)

In his last 7 outings, Trayce Jackson-Davis has been on fire! Averaging 11.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block per game, he's shooting a stellar 68.5% from the field, with minimal turnovers (1.1 per game). This performance has vaulted him to 9th-round value in nine-category leagues.

Recently, Jackson-Davis earned his first start of the season against the Mavericks, stepping in for Kevon Looney. Despite the team's loss, he shone brightly with 17 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 steal, shooting an impressive 72.7%. With Draymond Green's absence due to suspension, the Warriors are shaking things up, and rookies like Jackson-Davis and Brandin Podziemski are emerging as hidden gems for Coach Steve Kerr.

While it's uncertain if Jackson-Davis will maintain his starting spot, especially once Green returns, his current form is too good to overlook. Coach Kerr might just keep giving him significant playtime. Week 11, with the Warriors' four-game schedule, including a three-game stretch from Tuesday to Friday, is an ideal time to add Jackson-Davis to your roster.

Seize the opportunity and add TJD to your lineup. With his recent performance, he's proving to be a valuable asset, just like Coach Kerr's faith in him. Let's hope he continues to impress and reward his fantasy owners.

Donte DiVincenzo, SG/SF, New York Knicks (23% owned)

Donte DiVincenzo recently exploded with a career-high performance against the Indiana Pacers. He racked up an impressive 38 points, grabbed 6 rebounds, dished out 2 assists, snatched 4 steals, and blocked a shot. Moreover, he drained a whopping 7 three-pointers, shooting a phenomenal 71.4% from the field and a perfect 100% from the free-throw line, with just one turnover. This showcase is a testament to his potential when given ample playtime.

The recent trade moves by the New York Knicks, sending Immanuel Quickley and R.J. Barrett to the Toronto Raptors, have tightened their guard rotation. This shift paves the way for DiVincenzo and fellow Wildcat Josh Hart to step up. For those keeping up with my Waiver Wire insights, you'll recall I spotlighted DiVincenzo weeks ago. Hopefully, you snagged him early and held onto him. His upside becomes clear with sufficient minutes on the court.

In his last 12 starts for the Knicks, DiVincenzo, despite modest scoring, has been delivering 5th-round value in nine-category leagues. He's averaging 12.9 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2 assists, 1.5 steals, and an elite 3 three-pointers per game, not to mention his efficient shooting at 53.4% from the field and 81.8% from the line.

Looking ahead to Week 11, the Knicks are set for four games, including a beneficial three-game run from Wednesday to Saturday, ideal for streaming. Now's the time to pick up DiVincenzo, particularly in deep leagues. His recent surge post-trade could elevate him beyond just being a reliable source for points, threes, and steals.

Jalen Smith, PF/C, Indiana Pacers (17% owned)

The Indiana Pacers recently shook up their lineup, giving Jalen Smith a starting role. In his last three games as a starter, Smith has been delivering solid numbers: averaging 12.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.0 three-pointers, and 1.0 blocks per game, while impressively shooting 60.9% from the field. Although he's only logging 22.8 minutes per game, which caps his potential, his per-36-minute stats are impressive, boasting 23.1 points, 12.0 rebounds, 2.6 three-pointers, and 0.9 blocks.

Looking ahead to Week 11, the Pacers have a packed schedule with four games, including a three-game stretch from Wednesday to Saturday, making it an ideal time for streaming. Smith is a valuable pick, especially in deep leagues, for those seeking to bolster their field goal percentage, points, rebounds, and blocks.

Keep an eye on Smith as he continues to find his rhythm. He's the Jalen Smith we've been waiting for since the 2022-2023 season.

Peyton Watson, SG/SF, Denver Nuggets (13% owned)

Aaron Gordon's recent misfortune with a dog bite, resulting in facial lacerations, certainly calls for a speedy recovery. This unexpected event, however, opens doors for others to shine. Spotlight on Peyton Watson, the standout UCLA sophomore, who's seizing his moment with the Denver Nuggets. Recently stepping up as a starter, Watson has dazzled in his last two games, averaging an impressive 17.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.5 three-pointers, and 1.0 blocks per game.

With Gordon sidelined for the foreseeable future, expect Watson to be a prominent figure on the court. The Nuggets have a packed Week 11 schedule, featuring four games with a crucial three-game stretch from Wednesday to Saturday. It's an ideal time for fantasy managers to leverage Watson's scoring and shot-blocking skills.

Although his overall stats might not turn heads, his ability to rack up points and defend makes him a noteworthy pick, especially in deeper leagues. Grab Watson and watch this second-year player potentially boost your fantasy team's performance.
