Chimezie Metu, PF/C, Detroit Pistons (10% owned)

Chimezie Metu turned heads with the Detroit Pistons, earning a spot for the season after a successful 10-day contract. His performance sparkled across nine-category leagues, boasting averages of 11.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and an outstanding 2.3 steals per game. His shooting was on point too, with a 55.6% field goal percentage and 93.3% from the free-throw line over his last eight appearances. These stats vaulted him into the top 40 in nine-category leagues.

Metu's journey this season is noteworthy. Starting with the Phoenix Suns, he briefly moved to the Memphis Grizzlies, who waived him before he played a game. Now, he's making waves with the Pistons.

As the Pistons gear up for the season's end without playoff hopes and missing several key players in the frontcourt, Metu's role could grow. Even as Duren's backup, Metu's talent shines through. Imagine his potential impact if Duren sits out. In a recent clash with the Brooklyn Nets, Metu dazzled, scoring 20 points with perfect 9/9 shooting, adding two threes, seven rebounds, three assists, and three steals in nearly 43 minutes.

Don't hesitate to add Chimezie Metu for Week 24. With his impressive rebounding and outstanding steal rate, he might be the key to clinching your league as the season wraps up.

Payton Pritchard, PG/SG, Boston Celtics (26% owned)

Payton Pritchard turns into gold with enough playing time. Starting just three games this season, he's delivered a stellar 18.0 points, 3.3 three-pointers, 4.0 rebounds, and 8.0 assists per game on 51.9% shooting. These numbers highlight the 26-year-old Oregon alum as a tantalizing option.

With the Boston Celtics securing a playoff spot, expect key players to rest in Week 24. Pritchard stands out as a top pick for at least two games. Plus, the Celtics face a back-to-back set on Thursday and Friday, ending the week against the Charlotte Hornets and Washington Wizards. Hint: it's a perfect storm for Pritchard due to likely load management.

Snatch Payton Pritchard off waivers this week. Usually, he boosts threes and assists, but come Week 24, he could be the all-around fantasy powerhouse that propels your team to victory.

Jordan Goodwin, PG, Memphis Grizzlies (15% owned)

Jordan Goodwin is capitalizing on his two-way contract with the Memphis Grizzlies, boasting averages of 12.4 points, 1.4 threes, 9.2 rebounds, and 5.0 assists over his last five outings. This performance has catapulted him into the top 90 in nine-category leagues.

Navigating the Memphis Grizzlies' fantasy landscape is currently a challenge, thanks to unpredictable lineup changes and random sits. Goodwin's situation, bound by his two-way contract's game limit, complicates predictions for Week 24.

Yet, if Jordan Goodwin secures more playtime, especially a starting spot, he's a must-pick. Stay alert for any roster updates. A favorable week for Goodwin could mean a significant lift in rebounds, assists, and steals for your fantasy team, possibly steering you to victory.

Tristan Vukcevic, C, Washington Wizards (3% owned)

The Washington Wizards felt the sting of losing Daniel Gafford via trade, compounded by injuries to Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley III. Enter Tristan Vukcevic, who posted impressive stats in his last three appearances: 15.3 points, 1.3 threes, 5.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.0 steal per game.

Vukcevic's emergence is somewhat of a surprise, adding a twist to this season's waiver wire narrative. Who would have guessed we'd be spotlighting a name reminiscent of Vucevic in our waiver wire talks? Despite the Wizards only playing three games in Week 24, grabbing Vukcevic, the European rookie, seems like a wise move.

Don't miss out on this former second-round pick. Vukcevic's potential is bursting at the seams, demonstrated across multiple games. He's the choice if you need a center in Week 24 and Holmes remains sidelined. Seize the opportunity to propel your team toward championship success with this strategic pickup.

Here are some players who might also be relevant in the upcoming week:

  • Andre Drummond, C, Chicago Bulls (40% owned)
  • Sam Hauser, SF/PF, Boston Celtics (19% owned)
  • Brandon Clarke, PF/C, Memphis Grizzlies (13% owned)
  • Brice Sensabaugh, SF, Utah Jazz (5% owned)
  • Julian Champaigne, SF/PF, San Antonio Spurs (6% owned)
  • Noah Clowney, PF, Brooklyn Nets (4% owned)
  • Luke Kornet, C, Boston Celtics (3% owned)
  • Javonte Green, SG, Chicago Bulls (2% owned)
  • Maozinha Pereira, SF, Memphis Grizzlies (1% owned)
