Day’Ron Sharpe, C, Brooklyn Nets (6% owned)

The Brooklyn Nets are gearing up for a busy Week 19 with five games on the calendar. This heavy schedule makes their players especially attractive for waiver wire picks this week. Since starters like Cam Johnson and Dennis Schroder might be off the table, it's time to turn our attention to the bench. Day'Ron Sharpe emerges as a standout option here.

Sharpe shines in terms of per-minute efficiency, boasting averages of 17.0 points, 15.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals, and 1.8 blocks per 36 minutes. His recent average of just 14.8 minutes over the past seven games might raise some eyebrows, but with five games ahead, opportunity knocks. This stretch could significantly amplify his impact in rebounds, blocks, and shooting efficiency.

In need of a boost in the frontcourt? Day'Ron Sharpe could be your secret weapon in Week 19. For those in deeper leagues, his upcoming schedule offers a prime chance to rack up vital stats. Don't miss out; Sharpe could be a pivotal addition to your fantasy lineup.

Dorian Finney-Smith, SF/PF/C, Brooklyn Nets (11% owned)

Next week, turn your sights to Dorian Finney-Smith of the Brooklyn Nets. While his season has seen ups and downs, he's recently hit a stride that warrants attention. Over his last five games, he's delivered averages of 9.0 points, 1.0 three-pointers, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game. Given the Nets' packed five-game schedule in Week 19, Finney-Smith stands out as a solid streaming choice for fantasy leagues.

Sure, he may not suit every team, and you might find other appealing pickups. However, in deeper leagues where you're seeking a boost in threes and rebounds, Finney-Smith is worth considering. Leverage the Nets' five-game slate and let Finney-Smith help fill those stat sheets for your fantasy squad.

Mo Bamba, C, Philadelphia 76ers (3% owned)

Mo Bamba recently snagged a starting role over Paul Reed for the game against the Charlotte Hornets, where he accumulated 2 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, and 2 blocks in just 19.5 minutes. Despite not being on the court for the game's end and Reed putting up solid numbers himself, Bamba's potential remains notable. Recalling his 2019-2020 stats, Bamba impressively averaged 12.4 rebounds and 3.5 blocks per 36 minutes, a feat he's replicating this season.

Looking ahead to Week 19, the Philadelphia 76ers are scheduled for four games. If Bamba maintains his starting spot and plays mid-20s minutes, he presents valuable opportunities in rebounds and blocks. It's crucial to keep an eye on Philadelphia's center rotation. For those who recently added Bamba, it's advisable to hold onto him. Those in deeper leagues should consider betting on his upside now and sort out the details as they unfold.

Jabari Walker, SF/PF, Portland Trail Blazers (12% owned)

Jabari Walker is catching our attention once again. After suggesting a potential uptick in his play during March in a previous feature, it seems that moment has arrived. In his recent two games, Walker has been impressive, posting averages of 18.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.5 steals over 26.6 minutes per game.

The Portland Trail Blazers are navigating through injuries, missing key players like Deandre Ayton, Shaedon Sharpe, Malcolm Brogdon, Scoot Henderson, and the newly sidelined Jerami Grant. This scenario opens significant doors for the Colorado College alum to make his mark.

In Week 19, consider making a move for Jabari Walker if you require a forward. With Ayton out and Grant potentially missing games, Walker's role could expand beyond just rebounding. Plus, as the Blazers might start focusing on the future and rest their key pieces, Walker stands a chance to shine even brighter as the season winds down.
