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 23. One we'll give away: Mavericks guard Jalen Brunson, who's available in over 50 percent of leagues.
"With nothing left to play for, the Mavericks want to give added minutes to their young players down the stretch," Barner said. "Brunson has moved into the starting five for their last nine games and has cashed in with averages of 17 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.7 3-pointers. They've played him an average of 32 minutes a night during that stretch and there's no reason to believe that will decline going forward, especially with how well he's playing. If he's still available in your league, don't hesitate to pick him up since the Mavericks will play four times in Week 23."
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 23? 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!
