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 for 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 22. One we'll give away: Jazz forward Jae Crowder, who's available in over 50 percent of leagues.
"Crowder looked lost with the Cavaliers last season, but was able to return to his productive ways after being dealt to the Jazz at the trade deadline," Barner said. "He's carried that success over to this year, averaging 12 points, 4.9 rebounds and a career-high 2.2 3-pointers per game. Even though he's mostly come off the bench, he's getting plenty of playing time at 28 minutes a night. With the Jazz set to play four times in Week 22, Crowder could provide plenty of value."
Barner has also identified which players you should target on waivers if you need a jolt for your squad, including a center available in over 60 percent of leagues who has an extremely favorable schedule this week. Anyone who adds this player could hit it BIG.
So which players should you target on the waiver wire in Week 22? And which overlooked center 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!
