2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Weekly Planner

What a rollercoaster it has been, and we're only in week 3 of the 2023–24 NBA regular season! The sun blocker Victor Wembanyama looks like a veteran pro with his dominance on the court. The Bucks show signs of weakness, and the Celtics remain the only undefeated team in the NBA. There is no better time for the 2023–24 Fantasy Basketball Week 3 Planner!

No NBA games have been scheduled for Election Day (Tuesday, November 7, 2023) for the second consecutive season, as the league continues to encourage fans and the greater NBA community to plan to vote and participate in the civic process.

Go vote.

But let's talk about what you should elect to do to achieve the heights of fantasy basketball glory. And that includes making sure to plan and strategize for your fantasy week three!

2023–24 Fantasy Basketball Week 3 Planner

Streamer Consideration

The seasoned fantasy basketball managers are keeping a close eye on the waiver wire as the NBA regular season gets underway. Injuries and mid-season transactions can cause chaos. But the ideal time to discover underutilized talent in the free agency pool is typically early in the season.

It's a difficult path to tread, though, because no manager wants to prematurely cut a player off after one or two bad games, but they also want to seize the chance to strengthen their roster. Here are some players you should think about adding with the recent uptick of injuries.

Grayson Allen, Pheonix Suns (SG/SF)

Allen is averaging career highs in numerous categories through five games, including scoring (11.6 PPG), rebounding (4.6 RPG), assists (3.2 APG), made threes (2.8 3PM), and minutes (31.4 MPG). It's unknown when Bradley Beal (back) will be able to play again, so Allen might be a big contributor until then. Allen is an interesting alternative for the time being if you aren't anxious about defensive stats.

Kevin Huerter, Sacramento Kings (SG/SF)

Huerter is off to a poor start, particularly in terms of shooting, and some fantasy managers have already abandoned him. However, after two utter duds to start the year, he has looked a little more like himself in the last two games, combining for 23 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists, four three-pointers, two blocks, and one steal in 64 minutes.

With De'Aaron Fox (ankle) out, Huerter could see an increase in productivity this week, bolstered in part by matchups against the defensively poor Rockets and Trail Blazers teams.

Given that Huerter is coming off a career season in which he set career highs in scoring (15.2 PPG), field-goal percentage (48.5% FG), made threes (2.7 3PG), and three-point shooting percentage (40.2% 3PT), it makes sense to sign him now.

Alex Caruso, Chicago Bulls (PG/SG)

Despite shooting a career-high 51.9 percent from the field, Caruso remains a minor offensive contributor. He's never going to blow us away with his scoring or assist figures, but his well-rounded averages of 7.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 0.8 threes in 24.0 minutes make him a good value in many leagues.

Caruso can be that person if you need someone to contribute in multiple categories and rack up stocks.
