Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Sleeper Picks 2/26/16
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
February 26, 2016
We’ve got a nice NBA schedule coming up tonight as we head into the weekend, which makes this morning a perfect time to check out some of the sleeper options out there on the waiver wire in seasonal and daily fantasy basketball leagues. Here’s a closer look at the numbers so you can see if anyone’s right for your team.
Justise Winslow, SF/PF, Miami Heat: Winslow has been paying off nicely for fantasy owners recently. He filled the stat sheet against the Warriors, with eight points, 10 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks.
In his three games before that, Winslow posted at least 13 points each outing. He’s looking like a nice lower-end pickup ahead of tomorrow’s game in Boston.

Dennis Schroder, PG, Atlanta Hawks: Schroder had a nice game against the Warriors early this week, with 18 points, three rebounds and six assists. That gives him four straight games with at least 16 points.
Schroder has also made a total of 10 3-pointers in his last four games. He’s averaging 11.2 PPG on the season and will try to keep his nice run going at home against the Bulls tonight.
Doug McDermott, SF, Chicago Bulls: Speaking of the Bulls, there’s another player we should check out in that upcoming Atlanta-Chicago matchup tonight. McDermott has a total of 60 points in the last three games, including a 30-point outburst on the 19th against Toronto.
McDermott’s major drawback is that he doesn’t provide much besides points. He’ll throw out a handful of rebounds each game but that’s about it. He’s usually good for a decent points total and some threes, though.
JaMychal Green, PF, Memphis Grizzlies: Let’s reach down to the bottom of the barrel and check out Green. He’s coming off 12 points and nine rebounds with a steal against the Lakers.
Green has been playing more lately, and should still see a decent amount of minutes for the time-being. In deeper leagues, he’ll be a good source of points/rebounds tonight against the Lakers in L.A.
Cory Joseph, PG, Toronto Raptors: Joseph is available in just about every league out there, and is putting up decent numbers lately. He snagged 18 points, two rebounds and six assists against Minnesota.
That makes four straight double-digit scoring outings for Joseph. While DeMarre Carroll is out, he’s a reasonable option in deeper leagues.
