Definitely a unique schedule this week, back-to-back adds may not work very well if your lineups are already full on Wednesday and Saturday thanks to a complete lack of games on Christmas Eve.
Monday and Tuesday have the most wire options, but unfortunately no B2B's, but don't be afraid to use a couple acquisitions early and don't wait until Sunday to try and turn the tides, there's only 4 games.
Evan Turner 23% ownership
Turner has been hovering around 25% ownership with Marcus Smart still sidelined. Smart is targeting a late December/early January return, and should come off the bench, so Turner has at least another week of buffed stats. His popcorn production continues, but his assists have been just a tick above his season average (3.8). Boston plays 4 games, including Wednesday and Saturday, but they also play Sunday to end the week strong.
Jerami Grant 21% ownership
Grant is still contributing decent blocks and rebounds. Covington has also seen less minutes lately during his slump, allowing for Philly's array of forwards more minutes. He can also chip in some points for you, but Philly has a 3 game schedule with both Wednesday and Saturday games.
Gerald Green 19% ownership
Green is hot, but Miami only plays 3 games including Saturday. His streak could end terribly at literally any time, and the hotel incident earlier this year doesn't exactly bolster my confidence in his maturity. He's good for points and threes.
Jordan Hill 22% ownership
& Ian Mahinmi 25% ownership
As usual, Mahinmi can get you the extra block per game, but otherwise they are similar players. They are both double-double threats every night while Turner is out, though they don't always rack up enough stats to consolidate it.
Allen Crabbe 13% ownership
Crabbe has turned out some duds recently, taking away his otherwise consistent scoring punch off Portland's bench. He's worth a look if you need points, though Portland plays both Wednesday and Saturday – They also play Sunday if you prefer to live dangerously.
Dion Waiters 16% ownership
Dion has been a decent option so far this year, though not the most reliable option out there. He can usually score in the low teens, racks up some boards and a few assists and might get you a steal and a three. If you had nothing better to do with a streaming spot, he can help pad your stats all around.
Teletovic (19% ownership), Canaan (13% ownership) and Nick Young (12% ownership) are all three-point specialists, with Canaan showing the most consistency, Teletovic with the most risk/reward, and Nick Young in case those two are taken.
Lakers and Thunder play 4 games, including Wednesday but not Saturday, giving your schedule more bang for the buck while other teams are forced to bench their guys.
I feel like we are light on assists this week, so I will suggest either Kendall Marshall (4% ownership) or TJ McConnell (10% ownership), both of which can turn out 3-4 in 15 minutes, which is good because thats all the minutes their playing right now. Jameer Nelson is still absorbing Mudiay's minutes for the time being at least and is worth a look. Keep an eye on news updates with these guys to use most efficiently.
