Fantasy Basketball Week 7 Schedule Preview (Friday-Sunday)

Here is how fantasy basketball managers can use the schedule to maximize their games played this weekend.

The NBA reported zero new coronavirus cases this week. It was an outstanding site, but fantasy managers need to remain on their toes. Any player could down at any moment, so be ready to make moves if necessary.

The weekend is shaping up to be a fun one with plenty of talking points. Kelly Oubre Jr. dropped 40 on the Mavericks, and the two teams face off again on Saturday night. There should be fun games all over the schedule. Here is how fantasy managers can take advantage.

Fantasy basketball talking points

  1. How impressive has Stephen Curry been this season? He is averaging 28.1 points, 5.7 rebounds, 6.1 assists, and 1.3 steals on outstanding efficiency to put him second overall in total value on the season. Do not be surprised to see him take over the top spot.
  2. Christian Wood suffered a scary-looking ankle injury on Thursday night. Keep an eye on his status. If he is out, DeMarcus Cousins should put up massive numbers. Add Boogie now and see how it plays out.
  3. Consider adding Maxi Kleber to your roster. He is starting and should be in for a new career-high in minutes. Kleber should help fantasy managers in blocks, rebounds, and threes without hurting your free throw percentage.
  4. Keep an eye on minutes shifting and who is missing time. Fantasy managers can bank a ton of stats by being on their toes and making the correct pickups.
  5. If you have this week wrapped up or are just looking to shift towards Week 8, the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets have the best schedule with four games all on light schedule days.

Back-to-backs

Saturday has 11 games on the schedule, so fantasy managers are unlikely to have space in their lineup to stream someone in. The focus this weekend should be on the Friday-Sunday pseudo-back-to-back.
