November 27, 2022

Now with more than 10 games played in the 2022-23 NBA regular season, some role-playing players are emerging as potentially great free agents who can get out of the waiver. The San Antonio Spurs are the only team to play 5 games in Week 5. As a result, FA fantasy values ​​have been inflated through Monday as SG can play 5 games from Monday and produce above-average fantasy figures.

Another free agent to consider is the Nets’ guard, who has scored at least 17 points in each of Brooklyn’s last three games. The Nets only play 3 games in week 5, but Thomas is definitely one of the hottest free agent guards this week. Last season this young scorer is nothing new, so we urge the fantasy owners to remember how well he played to fill the injury and anti-vax of last season. Elsewhere, forwards from Clippers and Hornets are also doing great, creating solid numbers for their respective teams. Currently available as free agents in about 50% of fantasy basketball leagues. We are operating the center and recovering right from where we left off in 2021. Once again, they are averaging almost double-doubles to start the season.

Let’s take a look at some of the key fantasy basketball free agent goals to target on Waver Wire this week.

SG Cam Thomas, Brooklyn Nets (43.92% owned)

While Kyrie Irving’s pranks continue into 2022, the Nets Guard is exhausted, this time dealing with anti-Semitic values. Cam Thomas came in, who took the place he left off last season when he filled in Kyrie’s absence and James Harden’s injury. In the last three games, Thomas has played about 30 minutes in each competition. He has scored at least 17 points in each of his last three competitions. He also recorded a handful of rebounds, assists and steals in the mix. Thomas’ current season average is weighed down by two games in which he only played a minute. His performance in the last three games with the Nets makes him an invaluable guard who can claim on the waiver. He is currently available in over 55% of the fantasy basketball leagues.

SG, Chicago Bulls (50.33% owned)

The Chicago Bulls are once again in trouble with the guard this season. There are still a few months left before returning. This caused Ayo Dostunu to spend a lot of time after the season started. Alex Caruso is averaging 25.8 minutes per game this season. He is averaging only 5.1 points per game, but is averaging 3.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game. What Caruso can’t achieve in offense, he makes up for in defense. Caruso, for example, scored only 4 goals (1-11 FG) against the Raptors on 6 November. However, he also recorded 11 rebounds, 11 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks in the competition. This is the kind of performance that makes Caruso a worthy fantasy basketball guard despite his low scoring figures. He is currently available as a free agent in about half of the fantasy basketball leagues. In fantasy basketball, it’s important to think about the player who gets the most out of every minute of every game. Caruso is one of those players and that’s why it should have fantasy value throughout the season.

SG Josh Richardson, San Antonio Spurs (20.21% owned)

Veteran shooting guard Josh Richardson kicked off his first full season with the San Antonio Spurs. In 10 games for the Spurs, Richardson is averaging 11.5 PPG (46.9 FG%), 2.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. For a player who only takes 23.5 minutes per game off the bench this season, he’s been playing well. Currently playing as a free agent in about 80% of the fantasy basketball league as the Spurs are playing five games next week, Richardson is a great wavy wire pickup whose value has been particularly inflated in a week-long fantasy league heading. Until Monday, November 14th.

SG, Denver Nuggets (61.43% owned)

This offseason, the Nuggets traded SG/SF and PG to Washington in exchange for SG/SF and PG for PG and SG Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. I think the Wizards easily won this trade, but Caldwell-Pope is off to a solid start for the Nuggets in 2022. He averaged 31.4 minutes per contest to produce 11.3 PPG (50 FG% and 52.4 3PT%) in nine appearances for Denver. , 3.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals per game. He scored in double digits in six of his first nine games with Denver. He is an excellent peripheral scorer who is shooting far more efficiently to start the 2022 season far more efficiently than his last season average in 2021. Last season, Caldwell-Pope made 77 appearances for Washington, giving him a FG% of 43.5, 39.0 3pt%. By comparison, he’s shooting brilliantly in the first few games of the 2022 season with the new team.

PF Jalen McDaniels, Charlotte Hornets (50.68% owned)

This season, Jalen McDaniels has appeared in all 11 games for the Hornets, averaging 26.1 minutes per game, averaging a career high. He is averaging 41.1% from fielding, 5.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.4 steals per game, averaging 9.6 PPG. After coming off Charlotte’s bench this season, McDaniels is rising to some degree as a sixth man on his team this season.

SF Norman Powell, Los Angeles Clippers (41.18% owned)

Norman Powell left the Blazers to join the Clippers midway through last season. In his first full season in Los Angeles, Powell had a great start. He is averaging 11 points, 42.9% field shots, 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. In 3 of their last 7 games, Powell has scored at least 17 points. Kawai in particular is absent or limited this regular season, but expect Powell’s numbers to continue and even improve. He can shoot much better and will start to do so as the season goes on and he loosens up.


C Mason Plumlee, Charlotte Hornets (51.35% owned)

Last season veteran center Mason Plumlee averaged 24.6 minutes per game in 73 games for the Hornets. He was averaging 6.5 PPG (64.1 FG%), 7.7 rebounds, and 3.1 steals per game. In the first 11 games of the 2022 season, Plumlee played the same time but is averaging 8.1 PPG, 8.3 REB and 4.1 AST. Plumlee resumes where he left off and produces slightly more than he did in the first few weeks of the regular season.

C Kevon Looney, Golden State Warriors (26.39% owned)

Kevon Looney is averaging 23.5 minutes per game with 6.4 PPG, 6.6 REB and 3.3 AST this season. Last season, Looney showed off his endurance, playing all 82 games for the Warriors during the 2021-22 season. In 21.1 minutes per game last season, Rooney averaged 6.0 PPG, 7.3 REB and 2.0 AST per game. He is starting again right where he left off this season. For a guy who doesn’t seem prone to injury, he’s a big man with a lot of fantasy value currently available in over 70% of fantasy basketball leagues.
