Kelly Olynyk, PF/C, Utah Jazz (33% owned)

Kelly Olynyk has been on fire in his last two outings, delivering top-40 value in nine-category leagues. He's notched an impressive 13.0 points, 1.5 threes, 7.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, along with 1.0 steal and 1.0 block per game. His shooting has been stellar too, hitting 81.8% from the field and a perfect 100% at the free-throw line.

The Utah Jazz, one of only six teams playing four games next week, also offers a three-game stretch over four days – ideal for streaming. Their matchups kick off against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, followed by back-to-back clashes with the Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday and Thursday.

While Walker Kessler's return and Lauri Markkanen potentially coming back early might limit Olynyk's ceiling, the Jazz's favorable Week 6 schedule is too good to pass up. Need rebounds and out-of-position assists? Give Olynyk a glance. He's a solid streaming choice for Week 6, and you never know, he might just turn into a more permanent fixture in your lineup.

Daniel Theis, C, Los Angeles Clippers (10% owned)

Daniel Theis, stepping up as the Los Angeles Clippers' backup center, has been delivering some notable stats in the past four games. He's impressively averaging 6.3 rebounds, 1.0 block per game, and shooting 50% from the field on 7.5 attempts per game. These numbers make him an attractive option, especially in deeper leagues with 16 or more teams.

Heading into Week 6, the Clippers are among the select six teams boasting a four-game schedule. Even better, they have a three-game run within four nights, ideal for streaming. But brace yourself, as the matchups are challenging – starting with the Denver Nuggets on Monday, followed by consecutive games against the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors on Wednesday and Thursday.

This tip is particularly geared towards managers in deep leagues looking for solid big man stats, with the bonus of some out-of-position threes. Consider giving Daniel Theis a shot and make the most of the Clippers' schedule in Week 6. He's definitely worth streaming in the week ahead for those much-needed stats.

Dyson Daniels, PG/SG, New Orleans Pelicans (36% owned)

Dyson Daniels is back on our radar for Week 6, marking his second consecutive appearance on our list. His wide availability and ongoing value make him a standout choice. Since stepping up as a starter for the New Orleans Pelicans, Daniels has delivered averages of 9.1 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and a notable 2.1 steals per game. Despite his modest scoring, his multifaceted contributions have boosted him to the top-84 in nine-category leagues.

Week 6 looks promising for the Pelicans, who are one of only six teams playing four games, and they boast the easiest schedule of the lot. They kick off the week against the Utah Jazz on Monday, followed by a challenging encounter with the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. This leads into a crucial three-game run over four nights, featuring matchups against the struggling San Antonio Spurs on Friday and the Chicago Bulls on Saturday.

If your team needs a boost in rebounds, assists, and steals this week, Daniels is a prime target. Seize the opportunity presented by the Pelicans' favorable schedule. While Jose Alvarado's return limit Daniels' ceiling, with C.J. McCollum potentially still out of action, Dyson Daniels is a smart add or stream. Aim to keep him at least until McCollum makes his return.

Norman Powell, SG/SF, Los Angeles Clippers (39% owned)

Norman Powell is on a roll, delivering seventh-round value in nine-category leagues over his last five games. Averaging a solid 13.8 points, 2.2 threes, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per game, Powell's efficiency shines with a 48.9% field goal percentage and 93.3% from the free-throw line. Despite coming off the bench and playing second fiddle to Terance Mann, Powell's contributions are noteworthy for fantasy managers.

Powell's inclusion in our Week 6 recommendations isn't just for his recent surge; it's also a strategic play to leverage the Los Angeles Clippers' four-game schedule. The Clippers face challenging opponents, including the Denver Nuggets, Sacramento Kings, and Golden State Warriors. However, their compact three-game stretch over four days presents a golden opportunity for savvy streaming.

If your Week 6 lineup needs a boost in points and threes, Powell is your go-to guy. Capitalize on his current form and the Clippers' advantageous schedule. Adding Powell could be a shrewd move to strengthen your team's performance this week.

Here are some players who might also be relevant in the upcoming week:
  • Cam Reddish, SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers (31% owned)
  • Alec Burks, PG/SG/SF, Detroit Pistons (12% owned)
  • Terance Mann, SG/SF, Los Angeles Clippers (6% owned)
  • Jordan Hawkins, SG, New Orleans Pelicans (25% owned)
  • Jose Alvarado, PG, New Orleans Pelicans (4% owned)
