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 before the Fantasy playoffs, 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 21. One we'll give away: Mavericks forward Dwight Powell, who's available in over 60 percent of leagues.
"For some reason, the Mavericks decided to keep Powell as part of their second unit despite trading away DeAndre Jordan," Barner said. "Powell still played well and provided value in that role. Now, he's pushed his way into the starting five and logged at least 32 minutes in three straight games. He took advantage of the added minutes by averaging 16.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and two steals. With four games on tap on Week 21, don't hesitate to grab Powell if you need help up front."
Barner has also identified which players you should target on waivers if you need a jolt for your squad, including a guard available in about half of leagues who is set to go off for big numbers down the stretch. Anyone who adds this player could hit it BIG.
So which players should you target on the waiver wire in Week 21? And which overlooked guard could lead your team to Fantasy glory? ... Join SportsLine right now to see the best league-winning free agents, all from one of the most respected voices in the industry!
