Fantasy Basketball Waiver Thread Goals for Week 11
Nic Claxton (C, BKN) – 17% enrolled
After completely missing out on November and already with three starts under his belt, Claxton returned to the field on December 3 (just 3 MP, however) and he made eight games until Christmas starting four, including the last three in a row. It’s not that Brooklyn has a lot more options outside of Claxton when it comes to big men, so it should be easy to keep his leading role even if it doesn’t offer huge opportunities for big men. thrive in attack as part of a charged (if healthy / available) first unit.
Claxton, however, is making the most of his chances. Although he only played “only” 26 MPG in the last two weeks of play (four games, as he was forced into a few games last week) and has lower usage rates than the average (14.4%), he’s still able to endure a 14-5-1-1-2 line in his last three starts, including Saturday’s Christmas game. Claxton won’t often score double-digit points, but he operates exclusively in the paint (good pitch percentages), catches almost 5+ RPGs over the season, but the most interesting comes with a huge advantage over the blocks department ( 1.3 BPG this year, 2.5 BPG in the last two weeks, four games in a row with 1+ block and three of those crushing 2+ shotsw).
Gary Payton II (PG / SG, GSW) – 16% enrolled
While Klay Thompson is expected to miss a few more games as he crosses the home stretch of his ramp-up days, Gary Payton is expected to stay on the pitch for his usual MPG, after at least October 18. The absences of Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole opened the door to GP2 for a few starts on December 23 and Christmas, but don’t get lost because it won’t stay that way for long. Even then, Payton is a solid WW target for those in the deeper leagues who need some very specific category upgrades.
Payton is a good three-point shooter, but he’s also a threatening dunker – in other words, a high percentage of field goals every night. The volume is really low, mind you, but GP2 hits pretty much everything it hits: 64/42/58 are the splits on 4.7 FGA and 2.9 3PA all season long. It’s been eight games in a row for Payton with a score of 54.5% + over 6.8 FGA. Payton has an enjoyable 3.2 RPG average for a guard and also has a fairly high advantage in the robbery chat (1.25 SPG in all 33 games, 1.5 in the last week of play). He also avoids turnovers completely, so take that as the icing on the cake if you’re in a TO-weighted league.
Lonnie Walker IV (SG / SF, SAS) – 15% registered
To someone with Walker’s production, the 15% doesn’t make a lot of sense. Walker plays on the Spurs pin pretty much every day (he only started three games, all in late October and early November), and hit around 23 MPG this season. He is however the leader of the second unit, as shown by his record 22.9% USG (up 24.1% in the last six games he played). This is why Lonnie excels at the points cat (16+ PPG in the last seven games) while shooting 12 FGA per game.
The average is just a little lower over the entire season, but remains high with LW4 averaging 10.3 FGA of which more than half (5.2) comes from beyond the arc. Lonnie Walker scores 40.5% of his field goals and 31.6% of his three points – only 14 league players (LW4 included) lift 5+ treys per game while playing under 25 MPG and reaching 30% + of them. Walker ranks second among these players in APG (2.4) and is tied for second in BPG (2.9). Still soon to see if this is real, but Lonnie has reduced his turnover in the last two weeks to just 0.5 TOPG from his 1.1 throughout the season, as he has increased his score of 15 hours per game from 1.5 before December 9 to 2.1 after that date (seven games played).
Facundo Campazzo (PG, DEN) – 14% enrolled
With Jamal Murray’s three, PJ Dozier and now Markus Howard also injured and missing at least six weeks of playing time, it’s Facundo Campazzo who holds the point for the Denver Nuggets from the pine. Regardless of whether Monte Morris remains in good health and gets first unit minutes as point guard, Campazzo has found a very solid role in second unit and has been increasing his time on the pitch lately. Facu has played more than 27 minutes in all but one of his last six games, dating back to December 11 (two weeks of play). In all of those games (including the one in which he fell to just 20 minutes), Facu registered 6+ points, 2+ rebounds, 5+ assists and averaging 8-2-6-1-1 per game. . line.
Facu’s individual numbers are even better, as its true averages are up to 8.3 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 6.6 APG, and 1.6 SPG. He also hits 1.5 to 15 hours per game, and although his shooting percentage is going through a very deep drop (34.3% from the field in the last two weeks), he still makes three in clusters, distributing many pennies and steal balls like a champ. Low usage, one-time shooting, and a good number of dimes / theft are what make Facu a solid WW target.
Cory Joseph (PG, DET) – 7% enrolled
With all three guards Rodney McGruder, Killian Hayes and Saben Lee entering protocols as late as last Thursday, it’s not that Detroit has plenty of options left other than rookie Cade Cunningham and veteran Cory Joseph for get one and two minutes. guard points these days, and for a few more games until we flip the schedule page next weekend. Joseph’s case is quite interesting and somewhat reminiscent of Kemba in that he was completely out of rotation last week (recording DNP CDs) but he returned on December 19th and in three games he was fantastic, winning. probably more ROS opportunities.
Joseph played 24, 25, then 42 (!!!) minutes in those three games, starting the last two in point. He’s averaged 15-3-4 in those three outings, shooting over 44.4% in every game and attempting 10.6 FGA per game. The use rate was not close to being high (19%) but Joseph shot quite effectively and that made up for his low chances (and he turned the ball more than 2 times per game, making the even better use / production). Joseph is often used as a three-point sniper with very low amounts of shots to attempt, but he has a few assists (3.6 APG on the season) while stealing around 0.8 SPG during his 28 matches played. It’s certainly not a target for anyone in the shallower leagues, but a pretty nice target if you’re struggling to get help during the last few days of this calendar year – until the bodies brought to light. deviation from protocol are coming back.
