No team has a streaming-friendly schedule this week because of Thanksgiving. Thursday there will be zero games, making Wednesday and Friday full lineups. Monday and Sunday also have eight and nine games respectively so check out your lineups ahead of time to make sure you have room. For example, Matt Barnes (24%) has been a good streamer recently but with only three games on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday but he might not even make it off the bench for you. Tuesday and Saturday are the definition of quality games but only the Knicks and Thunder play on both days.
We are also without any B2B's for Monday/Tuesday or Saturday/Sunday, just making this whole week a mess for lineups and streaming. Another alternative to using all your acquisitions this week might just be to hold someone on your bench. For example here, some of you may be interested in the ownership disparity between Yahoo! and ESPN for guys like Josh Richardson (46% Y! vs. 13% ESPN), RHJ (64% Y! vs. 12% ESPN), the curious ceiling of Cody Zeller (37% Y! vs. 17% ESPN), or even the redemptive allure of Danny Green (67% Y! vs. 16% ESPN)
Brandon Jennings 14% ownership
He's risky for standards, but with the Knicks quality games, you could do worse this week. He can help you out in assists and threes with a steak and will most certainly damage your FG% - nothing new from Jenning's here but he's a decent option.
Andre Roberson 10% ownership
He's pretty much just for defensive stats and anything else he gives you in his near-30 minutes per game is just added bonus on quality days.
Mike Muscala 23% ownership
His numbers with and without Howard aren't even strikingly different, so he will maintain value. While the box score might look a bit underwhelming, getting that kind of efficiency off the wire isn't always available and he can get the off three or block.
James Johnson 10% ownership
His piece in the rotation remains to be seen upon the return of Justice Winslow, still questionable for Monday, but you have to love the potential triple-1 streaming option.
Nik Stauskas 9% ownership
As a Kings fan, I have little faith in Nik Stauskus. His last five games have me wondering though as he has scored at least 12 points (87 total), hit at least 1 three (15 total) and averaged at least 1 steal (7 total). He had 21 points with 5 threes on 8/9 shooting on Saturday so he is scorching right now as the hottest three-point specialist on the wire. Just know that we have seen brief glimpses of this before, and as for the ROS outlook, the Sauce could go bad with so many pieces of the rotation still in question.
Good luck on what is probably the worst week for streaming, but if you come back next week we'll go over more options for a more regular week.
