Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 3/12
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Today's Matchups
March 12, 2016
We’ve got a big NBA schedule coming up today, which means there will be plenty of action in our seasonal and daily fantasy basketball leagues. With that in mind let’s check out the waiver wire and see if there are any interesting adds out there for the upcoming games.
Hollis Thompson, SG/SF, Philadelphia 76ers: Thompson and the Sixers are coming off a win (finally) over the Nets yesterday. In that one he scored 11 with seven rebounds, four assists and a steal.
Thompson now has five straight double-digit scoring outings since coming back, and he’s still available in around 90 percent of the fantasy leagues out there. He should get big minutes tonight at home against the Pistons.

Josh Richardson, SG/SF, Miami Heat: Richardson is coming off a great game in Chicago. During that one he posted 22 points with two rebounds, four assists and a steal. He also had four 3-pointers.
Richardson now has seven 3s in his last two games and two straight double-digit performances. The road trip continues in Toronto tonight, and with the Heat banged up he makes a nice option in deeper fantasy leagues.
Michael Beasley, SF/PF, Houston Rockets: Speaking of deep-league adds, Beasley is getting some consideration thanks to his performance in Boston. He put up 18 points with eight rebounds and a steal during 15 minutes in that one.
Beasley’s minutes come from garbage time and opportunities when the Rockets don’t go small (which don’t come all that often). He’s a deep-league guy only.
Carl Landry, SF/PF, Philadelphia 76ers: Let’s stick with our deep-league theme and visit with Landry. He is available in just about every fantasy league, but is getting some attention after 16 points, eight rebounds and an assist against Brooklyn.
That makes two double-digit scoring outings in the last three games for Landry, with at least six rebounds in all three games. If he gets minutes tonight against the Pistons, he could pay off handsomely for adventurous fantasy owners.
Jordan Hill, PF/C, Indiana Pacers: It’s been a while since Hill has played (March 7) so he’s not fresh in our minds. He’s been good lately, though, scoring eight with eight rebounds and an assist in his last game.
Hill has two double-digit scoring outings in his last four and has put up at least six rebounds in all of those. He will be in Dallas this afternoon.
