The Timberwolves only play two games in this very moderately paced week with every other team playing three or four. Wednesday and Friday feature ten games each while all other days only have five to seven so the week is pretty wide open for streaming. Just keep in mind that we are without back-to-backs for a slow weekend featuring seven games each day, so g
Tony Allen 18% ownership
Tony Allen crawled out of a time machine and back onto the court for a battered Grizzlies squad. The usual steals are still there averaging 2.0 over his last 8 games, scoring double-digits in three of his last four, and pulling down double-digit rebounds in two of those last four games as well. This could be steady production so long as the Grizzlies remain banged up and still winning, but his body might not agree to that timetable. He's a nice add this week with the Grizzlies playing four games on Tuesday, Wednesday Friday and Sunday and he could well be worth a standard-league hold for another week or so.
Allen Crabbe 25% ownership
Crabbe's production has regressed since the recent return of Harkless, but given Portland has the only B2B set for Monday and Tuesday and Crabbe has become a very consistent three-point specialist this year, he is worth a look in standards if you want to try and pad those threes early for the coming week. His FG% isn't especially noteworthy, but he's not going to wreck yours either. Portland does play another two games on Thursday and Saturday, but he's unlikely to break the 10-point mark most nights without an injury in front of him.
Patrick Patterson 25% ownership
2Pat has built his way up to standard-league streaming relevancy with some moderate threes, rebounds and points averages. The threes are fairly consistent while the points and rebounds are more sporadic, but if you hold him for all of Toronto's four games this week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) his production should resemble his recent averages of about 2 threes, 6 rebounds, a steal and 8 points per contest shooting around 41%.
Cody Zeller 21% ESPN, 42 Y! ownership
Zeller is doing the best he can with the timeshare given, and nothing has bolstered recently, but this is more to point out that he is on a lot more ESPN waiver wires than Yahoo, and is a very viable streaming option where he isn't being owned. He's a high-efficiency guy, shooting 60% on the season (64% Free throw, though) with 6 rebounds, 10 points and a block. Charlotte also has a nice four-game schedule this week playing games on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Josh Richardson 6% ESPN, 37% Y! ownership
Richardson has upside, but an early injury, some slumping percentages and a murky rotation in Miami have left a lot of us guessing his fantasy potential this season. If you have room for a speculative add, this may be a guy worth holding onto for a breakout campaign. He has shown himself capable of shooting threes at a high efficiency and doing a little ball-handling as well as rack up some steals, and Miami has a nice 4 game schedule without any B2B sets, so this is the perfect time to grab him before someone else does.
