Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 2/1
Fantasy Baseball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
February 1, 2016
We’ve got a stuffed NBA schedule coming up tonight, so this makes a great time to check out some of the notable waiver wire additions in seasonal and daily fantasy basketball leagues out there. Let’s see if any of these trending players will make a nice add for yoru squad.
Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets: Let’s start out in Denver and check out Jokic, who has been at the top of the waiver wire charts over the past day or two. In his last pair of appearances, he has two double-doubles, including a 16-point, 11-rebound effort against the Pacers that yielded five steals.
Jokic has been filling up the stat sheets lately, with three double-doubles in his last four outings. He’ll be at home against the Raptors tonight.

Jared Dudley, SG/SF, Washington Wizards: Dudley got the start on Saturday, and he made it worth it on the stat sheet. He logged 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and a steal in that one.
In the last seven games, Dudley has posted double-digit scoring in six of them. He should remain in the starting lineup for the time-being, and makes a nice start for tonight in OKC.
Gary Harris, SG, Denver Nuggets: Let’s return to the Nuggets for a moment and check out Harris. He posted 18 points, one rebound, three assists, a steal and a block against Indiana, which gives him four double-digit scoring outings in his last five.
Harris has been getting a decent amount of minutes lately, and he’s been playing pretty well with them. He’s a lower-end guard tonight and in the immediate future.
Jordan Hill, PF/C, Indiana Pacers: Hill was absolutely nuts against the Nuggets this weekend. He logged 20 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a whopping six blocks.
Hill won’t be putting up those kinds of blocks numbers on a regular basis, but if you’re in need of a big man on the low end he’ll be serviceable. He’ll get the Cavs tonight.
Brandon Jennings, PG, Detroit Pistons: Jennings had a nice line in Toronto during his last outing, with 22 points, four rebounds, two steals, a block and five 3-pointers. It was a stark contrast to his scoreless evening against Cleveland.
Jennings is a very risky pickup these days, as he might not see a decent amount of minutes. Still, if you’re the gambling type, check him out in Brooklyn tonight.
