A week of good or bad matchups can make all the difference in Fantasy basketball.
And before you lock in your lineups for Week 22, you need to see what 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 recently been nominated for an FSWA award for Basketball Writer of the Year. He digs deep into the data, examining team trends and projecting game outcomes. If there's anybody who can spot an edge in a matchup or identify a player in position to break out, it's him.
Now, Barner has studied the upcoming NBA schedule and is sharing his best and worst Fantasy basketball matchups for Week 22. They'll help you figure out who to sit, start, add, and drop this week. One thing we can tell you for Week 22: Barner loves the matchups for the Rockets.
"The Rockets are surging at the right time, winning six straight games to propel themselves to the fourth seed in the Western Conference," Barner said. "They have an excellent chance to continue their recent success in Week 22 with three of their four opponents posting losing records. James Harden could carry Fantasy teams to victory while Chris Paul, Clint Capela and Eric Gordon could also provide significant value. If you need 3-pointers, consider adding P.J. Tucker. He's still available in 66 percent of CBS leagues and has drained at least two triples in six straight games."
Barner has also identified a team that is among the favorites to win the NBA title that has an extremely tough week of matchups coming up. Players from this squad could be in line for a disappointing week, so you absolutely need to see his breakdown.
