Fantasy Basketball Deep League Suggestions: 20-26 March

If you’ve made it this far you’re within reach of claiming your league’s championship, and with players missing games and being shut down it makes your last few roster spots even more important. Make sure you get the most out of your games limit and stream in players who give you the best chance of winning this week.

Here are 6 players who are viable streaming options in deep leagues, and are owned in 12% of Yahoo leagues or less, along with a list of players who can help you in: 3-pointers made, points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks.

Tony Snell is still in play, since he is owned in 11% of Yahoo leagues, but he was featured last week, so we’ll skip over him.

Zaza Pachulia (Golden State Warriors, C), Marreese Speights (Los Angeles Clippers, PF/C)

Both players owned in less than 12% of Yahoo leagues.
Both players have a B2B on Monday and Tuesday

Why are Zaza and Marreese worth streaming?
The Warriors and Clippers are the only two teams who start the week with a B2B on Mon-Tue, which makes Zaza and Marreese a smart play to start the week if you need an added boost in big man stats. Both can give you decent PTS and REB, while Speights can chime in with the occasional 3PM and Zaza is more active on the defensive end (STL and BLK).

Taurean Prince (Atlanta Hawks, SF)

Owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 20th March and Sunday 26th March.

PTS REB BLK

Why is Taurean worth streaming?
This is a big if, but if Millsap is going to miss more games then Prince is somebody you want to stream in. Over the past 2 games that Millsap has missed, Taurean has averaged 12 PTS, 6 REB, 1 3PM, and 3.5 BLK. They’re impressive numbers from the SF spot.

Noah Vonleh (Portland Trail Blazers, PF)

Owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 20th March and Sunday 26th March.

REB FG%

Why is Noah worth streaming?
Noah has quietly put together a nice string of games and has averaged 9 PTS and 8.3 REB, while shooting 65% from the field over the past 7 days. Portland has games on Thursday and Saturday (both on low game days - 5 on each), so if you need help in PTS, REB and FG% then Noah can be an option. He doesn’t provide help in anything else, though that may not matter.

Randy Foye (Brooklyn Nets, PG/SG)

Owned in 1% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 20th March and Sunday 26th March.

PTS 3PM

Why is Randy worth streaming?
While Randy doesn’t have upside, he has consistency. He’s consistently average, and sometimes average is what you need. Over the past 7 days he has averaged 12 PTS, 2.3 3PM, 3 REB, and 2 AST, while shooting 85% from FT. If Lin misses any more time Randy will receive more responsibility on the offensive side of the floor and can be a streaming option for Brooklyn’s Tuesday and Thursday games.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (Philadelphia 76ers, SG/SF)

Owned in 4% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 20th March and Sunday 26th March.

PTS 3PM

Why is Timothe worth streaming?
And if it’s youth and upside you’re wanting, TLC is a good option. He’s starting to get minutes at the right time of the season for a rookie on a team wanting to improve their lottery position. In the past 7 days he has averaged 11.7 PTS, 3 REB and 2 3PM. He’s a quality defender, which hasn’t crossed over to the box score yet, so don’t be surprised if he gets a few steals along the way.
