Now, Barner has studied the upcoming NBA schedule and is sharing his best and worst Fantasy basketball matchups for Week 24. They'll help you figure out who to sit, start, add, and drop this week. One thing we can tell you for Week 24: Barner loves the matchups for the Los Angeles Clippers, a team that has four games on the schedule and is still battling for playoff positioning.
"Danilo Gallinari, Lou Williams, Montrezl Harrell and Patrick Beverley should all be primed for big performances, especially with how poorly the Timberwolves and Cavaliers play on defense," Barner said. "Ivica Zubac is available in 64 percent of leagues and is a worthy addition if you need a big man based on his averages of 8.9 points, 7.8 rebounds and 0.7 blocks across his last 15 games."
Barner has also identified a playoff contender 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.
