Cavaliers PG Darius Garland
Owned in roughly 50% of fantasy basketball leagues, Garland has been dynamite to start the season. 43 points, 18 assists, and just 4 turnovers in his 2 games. Garland plays 3-games this week vs. the Knicks at home, followed by road matchups with the Pacers, and Hawks. I was thrilled to be able to sneak Garland in at the end of the draft for $1.
Thunder SF Darius Bazley
15/10 in his season debut vs. the Bobcats. Bazley should be able to contribute defensive stats along with improved scoring in Year 2. 4-games this upcoming scoring period including home tilts with the Jazz, Magic, and Pelicans. Then it’s back on the road vs. the Magic. Bazley was drafted for $1 in the middle of the draft. All you heard was crickets as the timer expired. Power Forward eligibility should be on the way.
Pistons SG/PG Delon Wright
4-games this week on the road with the Hawks followed by home matchups with the Warriors and Celtics (2). Derrick Rose may get rested on the B2B and Killian Hayes has looked overmatched to start the season. Wright may pick up more primary ball handling duties in the short-term which makes him a worthy streamer.
