mmate, knocking him uncons

  • August 10, 2019
    导出博客文章Working the waiver wire is crucial to succeeding in fantasy basketball. With so
    many games, injuries and endless shifts in rotations throughout the season, we
    need to source stats from free agency to maximize our imaginary rosters.In this
    weekly series, we identify players available in more than 40 percent of ESPN
    leagues at each position. Some nominations are purely specialists capable of
    helping in one or two categories, while others deliver more diverse and
    important statistical offerings. Either way, we believe the names below --
    ordered by ownership rate at each position -- can contribute positively to
    fantasy rosters.Point guardIsh Smith, Detroit Pistons (Owned in 33.7 percent of
    ESPN leagues): Coach Stan Van Gundy recently noted Reggie Jackson appears
    tentative when cutting and is still a few weeks away from returning. This means
    Smith, who is 12th in the league in drives per game, should continue to provide
    helpful results in steals and assists as the teams interim starting point
    guard.Sean Kilpatrick, Brooklyn Nets (28.5): On a team that ranks second in the
    league in pace, Kilpatricks busy offensive role as the key scoring weapon from
    the bench drives value, as he has scored in double figures in all but two games
    and has recorded at least one steal in all but three outings.Tony Parker, San
    Antonio Spurs (19.0): Over the past four games, Parker has averaged 26.4
    minutes, 14.3 points and 5.8 assists while shooting 59 percent from the field.
    With a 21.7 percent usage rate over this stretch, Parker is a worthy utility
    asset or even starting point guard for those thin at the position.Shooting
    guardWesley Matthews, Dallas Mavericks (49.3): Even as efficiency escapes his
    production pattern so far, we value the sheer volume of Matthews offensive
    opportunities. Over the past six games, for example, hes averaged 36.8 minutes,
    1.7 steals and a whopping 8.2 3-point attempts. Matthews is shooting just 33.3
    percent over this stretch, but this rare blend of opportunity beyond the arc and
    rich steal production reveals a helpful fantasy pattern in leagues of 12 or more
    teams at a shallow shooting guard position.Will Barton, Denver Nuggets (30.6):
    We understand managers had to move on from Barton given his lengthy injury
    absence, but now that hes nearing a return, its time to acquire Denvers top
    shooting guard while the market is still undervaluing his potential. Barton
    averaged 35.2 minutes over the first three games this season and produced
    efficient offensive results. We can expect a heavy workload for Barton upon his
    return, as hes among the teams best backcourt scoring options.Seth Curry, Dallas
    Mavericks (12.9): With J.J. Barea sidelined for over a month due to a
    significant calf injury, Curry earns a sizable uptick in minutes, touches and
    offensive upside. Barea is 10th in drive and touches per game, so there is a
    valuable void for usage left in his wake. Its encouraging to note that Curry has
    averaged 33.1 minutes, 4.3 assists and 5.5 3-point attempts over the past six
    games.James Ennis, Memphis Grizzlies (7.6): Having started 12 of 13 games, Ennis
    is averaging 30.4 minutes, a steal and three 3-point attempts per game as a key
    3-and-D performer for the Grizzlies found in a sizable majority of ESPN
    leagues.Small forwardMichael Kidd-Gilchrist, Charlotte Hornets (44.2): Im
    admittedly partial to players who provide above-average defensive production, as
    steals and blocks prove so scarce and we can easily source points and rebounds
    in working the wire. MKG remains a key target for me in shallower formats, as
    hes widely available and averaging 1.3 steals and 1.2 blocks. Some will balk at
    his 8.5 points per game, but the value Kidd-Gilchrist provides in such rare
    stats affords him unheralded value.Wilson Chandler, Denver Nuggets (40.0):
    Despite coming off the bench, Chandler has averaged 30 minutes and a rich usage
    rate of 25.5 over the past six games. Such steady opportunity has led to
    Chandler averaging 20 points, 8.7 boards and 1.3 3-pointers over this stretch.
    With such rich production, Chandler merits a far higher ownership rate for an
    up-tempo offense that ranks seventh in the league in pace.Josh Richardson, Miami
    Heat (12.8): With injuries to Goran Dragic and now Justise Winslow among the
    teams rotation over the past few weeks, Richardson has earned encouraging
    exposure to the tune of 31.3 minutes, 5.1 3-pointers and nearly a block and
    steal per game over the past seven games. Richardson might lose some minutes
    once the team is fully healthy, but his stellar rates suggest he could become a
    fixture on a team in need of his offensive upside.Power forwardMaurice Harkless,
    Portland Trail Blazers (30.7): As another 3-and-D asset who provides helpful
    stats beyond simply scoring, Harkless has recorded a block in all but four games
    this season and is enjoying an uptick on the glass of late.Terrence Jones, New
    Orleans Pelicans (17.3): The Pelicans are eighth in pace and Jones is playing
    nearly 30 minutes per night over the past two weeks. Jones has averaged 1.5
    blocks and nearly a steal over this span, with helpful rebounding and scoring
    rates complementing an underrated fantasy profile.Trey Lyles, Utah Jazz (9.6):
    Over the past three games weve seen Lyles average 16.7 points and 28.5 minutes.
    Its a small sample, but we need to act quickly when a young stretch big man like
    Lyle assumes an uptick in usage and exposure. Lyles should see extended minutes
    and shots with Derrick Favors injured, adding to his impressive and ascendant
    fantasy stock.CenterClint Capela, Houston Rockets (52.3): Amid a breakout
    stretch, Capela has averaged 13.6 points and 10.4 boards to go with 2.4 blocks.
    As the key rim protector for the Rockets, Capela offers a high floor and coveted
    upside.Nerlens Noel, Philadelphia 76ers (52.5): Speaking of defensive upside, no
    player other than Noel has ever averaged 1.8 steals and 1.7 blocks through his
    first two seasons. Adding to his rare defensive acumen, only David Robinson
    posted a better defensive box plus-minus than Noel through two NBA seasons.
    While the logjam for minutes in the Philly frontcourt isnt ideal, Noels
    impending return and unique defensive prowess merit more attention.Cody Zeller,
    Charlotte Hornets (16.6): While hes dealing with a minor shoulder injury, Zeller
    is an interesting addition considering hes averaged nearly 26 minutes, 12.2
    points and 1.2 blocks over the past five games -- all starts.

    . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday
    nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury
    pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the
    backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a
    change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the
    field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his
    first playoff game in 2006.

    . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59.
    . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit
    a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their
    hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday

    .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another
    dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky
    elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a
    teammate, knocking him unconscious. OXON HILL, Md. -- The ballots of individual
    voters for baseballs Hall of Fame will be released publicly starting with the
