2023–24 Fantasy Basketball Week 7 Planner

2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Weekly Planner

The inaugural In-Season Tournament Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Finals will be introduced to fantasy managers next week. So, what does this have to do with fantasy? The 2023–24 Fantasy Basketball Week 7 Planner will clarify all!

In brief, every club plays two games that count towards fantasy points each week, Monday through Friday. Teams that lose in the quarterfinals will play another "normal game" later in the week, while teams that win in the quarterfinals will play their semifinal game later in the week.

Both games for each team are counted. The lone game that will not count towards fantasy points next week is Saturday's In-Season Tournament Finals.

Hopefully, that clears up some confusion. If it doesn't, feel free to leave a message below. In the meantime, let's go to this week's planner.

2023–24 Fantasy Basketball Week 7 Planner

Streamer Consideration

With the strange week in mind, these waiver wire recommendations are predicated on each team participating in two fantasy games the following week. Most possible additions are predicated on the potential benefit of deeper formats in the absence of streaming choices.

Malik Beasley, Milwaukee Bucks (SG, SF)

Beasley has improved recently following a sluggish start to the season. The seasoned wing is averaging 15.2 points (50.5% FG), 5.6 boards, 3.8 three-pointers, 1.4 assists, and 1.0 steals in 32.5 minutes over the past nine games.

Although he isn't the best offensive option, Milwaukee's supporting players frequently get open shots because of the emphasis opposition defenses focus on limiting Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard, Brook Lopez, and Khris Middleton. Beasley is currently worthwhile to add in most formats.

Derrick Rose, Memphis Grizzlies (PG)

Since Rose's comeback from a knee injury, Memphis has been depending a lot on him to replace Marcus Smart (foot) and Ja Morant (suspension). The former MVP is averaging 14.3 points (62.5% FG), 4.7 assists, 2.7 rebounds, and 0.7 steals in 22.7 minutes over the past three games. Rose is therefore a good streaming option for at least a week or two more.

Simone Fontecchio, Utah Jazz (SF)

During Lauri Markkanen's recent injury absence, Fontecchio has stepped up and performed brilliantly as a starter. The 28-year-old sophomore small forward has averaged 13.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.8 threes, and 1.0 swipes in 28.2 minutes over the last four games.

Fontecchio might not be in the starting lineup for the long run, but he might be securing a significant future role for himself. Because of this, if you're looking for a streamer—or even better, if you're a long-time (Don't Stop) believer—he deserves your attention.
