Finding the perfect addition to your Fantasy basketball team via the waiver wire can be the difference between winning your league or going home with nothing. And before you determine which players you should target on the waiver wire this week, you absolutely need to see what SportsLine's NBA Fantasy expert Mike Barner has to say.
Barner is one of the most respected voices in the industry, whose work has appeared in Sports Illustrated and on Yahoo, RotoWire and KFFL. He's also been featured on ESPN Radio. He digs deep into the data, examining team trends and projecting game outcomes. If there's anybody who knows what it takes to win a league, it's him.
Now, he's done an in-depth analysis of the best widely available free agents entering Week 17. One we'll give away: Magic guard D.J. Augustin, who is available in almost 60 percent of CBS standard leagues.
"The Magic are set up nicely with four games in Week 17," Barner said. "All four opponents rank inside the top-11 in the league in pace of play, so several players on the Magic could be in line for a productive stretch. One of them to consider adding is Augustin, who continues to serve as their starting point guard. There's a reason he's still available on waivers despite his starting role, but with averages of 11.8 points, 2.2 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.7 3-pointers per game, the added games this week leave him with value."
Barner has also identified which players you should target on waivers if you need a jolt for your squad, including a huge producer of blocks who is almost guaranteed to be on your waiver wire right now because he's only owned in about 30 percent of leagues. Anyone who adds this player could hit it BIG.
So which players should you target on the waiver wire before Week 17? And which widely-available defensive specialist could lead your team to Fantasy glory? ...
