Fantasy Basketball Week 6 Schedule Preview (Friday-Sunday)

Fantasy basketball managers looking to stay on top of their games played should look no further than the second half of our week 6 schedule preview.

Fans are awaiting a decision on Saturday’s game between the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs. Memphis has had five straight games canceled because of health and safety protocols. Will they be able to return against the Spurs? Do their postponements lead into next week? That is something to watch this weekend.

Fantasy basketball managers in head-to-head leagues should be looking to maximize their games played. Here a look at the best way to accomplish that to wrap up Week 6.

Fantasy basketball talking points

  1. Both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are out in the league’s health and safety protocols. Fantasy managers should be streaming Reggie Jackson, Marcus Morris Sr., and Nic Batum until the Clippers' two stars return.
  2. Trade season should be in full swing in your league. Start trying to fill holes and improve your roster.
  3. The schedule is shifting a ton right now. The NBA has decided to add in games before the break, so teams with significant postponements can have some off days in the second half. Keep an eye out for added games and postponements.
  4. Nikola Jokic tops our fantasy basketball rankings right now, but no player is more surprising than Jerami Grant at 26 overall. Expect the Pistons forward to fall back to earth, but he is outperforming all expectations thus far.
  5. If you have this week wrapped up or are just looking to shift towards Week 7, the Utah Jazz have the best schedule with four games including three on the light schedule days.

Back-to-backs

There are ten games on Friday meaning fantasy managers will struggle to get a pickup in their lineup. No team is playing a Saturday-Sunday back-to-back, and here are also double-digit games on Monday. The focus this weekend should be adding someone on Sunday that plays on Tuesday of Week 7.
