Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 11/18
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
November 18, 2015
We’ve got 10 matchups coming in the NBA tonight, which means the fantasy basketball daily and seasonal leagues will be very busy. That said, let’s check out a few of the trending adds on the waiver wire so you can finalize that lineup before tonight’s games. Here’s a closer look at the recent stats.
Mario Chalmers, PG/SG, Memphis Grizzlies: Chalmers doesn’t play again for a couple of days, but we’ve got to feature him here since he’s been sizzling on the waiver wire. He put up 29 points in 23 minutes against OKC in his last outing, adding two rebounds, an assist, a steal and four 3-pointers.
Chalmers has put up double-digit scoring in his last three straight appearances while only playing around 20 minutes per game. He’s definitely worth a look while he’s this hot, and will see the Rockets at home on Friday.

Jeff Green, SG/SF, Memphis Grizzlies: While we’re on the subject of Grizzlies waiver wire additions, we can’t forget about Green. He was great against the Thunder as well, pumping in 20 points, five rebounds, an assist, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers in a stat-sheet filling effort.
Green also has double-digit points in his last three outings, but he’s been playing 30 minutes plus. His ceiling isn’t all that high, but he’s worth a dice roll this weekend.
Manu Ginobili, SG/SF, San Antonio Spurs: Now let’s get back to the guys who are playing tonight, starting with Ginobili. He came back from an injury against Portland to score 17 points with four rebounds, three assists and a block with a pair of 3-pointers.
Ginobili has been a very efficient shooter this season so far, and he’s far outpacing his draft stock. He has double-digit points in four of his last five and will look to keep it going against the Nuggets at home tonight.
Rodney Hood, SG/SF, Utah Jazz: Hood last played all the way back on Sunday, so let’s refresh our collective memory on him. He put up 20 points, three assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in a one-point win over the Hawks.
Hood was also coming off an injury, so it’s good to see him playing strong. He has double-digit points in each of his last three appearances and is only owned in around half the fantasy leagues out there. He’ll get Toronto at home tonight.
Dwight Powell, PF, Dallas Mavericks: Powell has been one of the most consistent low-end players in fantasy basketball so far this year, and he needs to be owned in most larger leagues. He’s coming off seven points, eight rebounds and two steals in Philly.
Powell has been pumping in the points and rebounds with stunning regularity as of late, and he’s good for a handful of other stats each game as well. He’ll be in Boston tonight and is a guy you definitely need to look at.
