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 25. One we'll give away: Timberwolves guard Tyus Jones, who is available in over 60 percent of CBS Sports Leagues.
"A once crowded point guard situation for the Timberwolves isn't nearly as troublesome from a Fantasy perspective now that Jeff Teague (foot) and Derrick Rose (elbow) are out for the season," Barner said. "That has left the starting job to Jones, who has averaged 10.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 0.9 steals and one 3-pointer across his last nine games. With a secure role and four games upcoming in Week 25, Jones is one of the top targets if you need a point guard."
Barner has also identified which players you should target on waivers if you need a jolt for your squad, including a guard available in over 60 percent of leagues who is set to explode this week. Anyone who adds this player could hit it BIG.
So which players should you target on the waiver wire in Week 25? And which overlooked guard could lead your team to a Fantasy title? ... Join SportsLine right now to see the best league-winning free agents, all from one of the most respected voices in the industry!
