Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 3/11
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
March 11, 2016
We’ve got a huge day of NBA basketball ahead of us, so this morning is a great time to take a closer look at the waiver wire in seasonal and daily fantasy basketball leagues. Here’s a rundown of a few players who are trending as adds right now.
Jerryd Bayless, PG/SG, Milwaukee Bucks: Bayless is one of the top free agent adds in fantasy right now, thanks mostly to a 20-point game he had against the Bulls a few days back. He put up six points, two rebounds and three assists in his last appearance.
Bayless has been packing on the minutes since his return, so he’s getting plenty of court time. He’s got four double-digit scoring outings in his last six games as well. He doesn’t play until tomorrow against the Pelicans, though.

Vince Carter, SG/SF, Memphis Grizzlies: If you’re looking for some low-end scoring, the great Vince Carter is your guy right now. He’s coming off 27 minutes in Boston with 17 points, six rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block and four 3-pointers.
Carter has been on fire statistically over the past couple of games, and with the Grizzlies fighting all sorts of injuries right now, he makes a lot of sense in deeper formats. He’ll be at home against New Orleans tonight.
Lance Stephenson, SG/SF, Memphis Grizzlies: Let’s stick in Memphis for a moment and check out Stephenson, who will benefit in court time after the Mario Chalmers injury. He scored just two points in Boston, but had 17 points with seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in Cleveland.
Stephenson seems to have carved out a nice role with the Grizzlies, and should continue to see minutes.
Evan Turner, SG/SF, Boston Celtics: Turner is still available in about half of the fantasy leagues out there, and seems like a nice play right now. He scored 16 with four rebounds, eight assists and a steal against the Grizzlies.
That gives Turner three straight double-digit scoring outings, and he’s been good for a handful of rebounds and assists each time. He will be at home against the Rockets tonight.
Josh Richardson, SG/SF, Miami Heat: Let’s get with a deep sleeper right now in Richardson, who is on the waiver wire in just about every league out there. He posted 14 points in Milwaukee with two rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block.
Richardson has been posting 3-pointers at a pretty steady clip, with eight in his last five games. He’s good for some low-end scoring tonight in Chicago, so look his way if you’re in a deep format.
