Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 3/25
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
March 25, 2016
We’ve got a big NBA schedule tonight, so there’s going to be lots of activity in seasonal and daily fantasy basketball leagues. With that in mind, let’s visit with some of the notable players out there on the waiver wire and see if anyone’s right for your team.
Salah Mejri, C, Dallas Mavericks: Mejri is one of the hottest pickups on the waiver wire right now, and he’s still available in over 80 percent of the leagues out there. He’s coming off a double-double in his last outing, with 14 points and 12 rebounds.
In the game before that, Mejri managed to put up 13 points and 14 rebounds. He’s set to soak up much of the work at the center position in Dallas, and could be a good investment moving forward. He gets Golden State on the road tonight.

Jon Leuer, PF/C, Phoenix Suns: If Tyson Chandler has to miss more time with his back injury, Leuer could turn into a nice grab. He’s coming off 22 points and 14 rebounds against the Lakers, also nailing a pair of threes in the process.
Leuer has two straight double-doubles after his 13 points and 13 assists against Memphis. He will be in Sacramento tonight.
Jeremy Lin, PG/SG, Charlotte Hornets: Lin has popped up on the waiver wire radar a time or two this season, and here he is again. He is coming off a nice game in Brooklyn, providing 21 points, two rebounds, four assists and a steal.
Lin has scored double-digit points in each of his last three games, and has also been good for a handful of rebounds and assists in each game. He will be in Detroit tonight as the road trip continues.
Jordan Farmar, PG, Memphis Grizzlies: It’s been a few days since we’ve seen Farmar play, so let’s refresh our memories. He played a whopping 31 minutes in Los Angeles in his last appearance, providing eight points, a rebound, five assists and two steals.
Farmar is probably a pickup right now in deeper leagues, and a watch-list candidate in others. His road trip will conclude with a tough matchup tonight in San Antonio.
Darrell Arthur, PF/C, Denver Nuggets: Arthur is worth looking at in most of the leagues out there, especially if you’re having trouble with rebounds, steals and blocks. He posted 11 points, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks against Philly in 32 minutes of work.
With the Nuggets all banged up right now, Arthur should continue to see quite a bit of work. Kick the tires here before the Lakers game tonight.
