Week 10 NBA Waiver Wire: Top Week 10 Fantasy Basketball Pickups
Davis Bertans, PF/C, Washington Wizards (66% rostered)Davis Bertans has been on FIRE over the past two games with 14 made three-pointers on 17 attempts. He was slumping hard not only since his return from COVID but really since the season began. Bertans is shooting below 40% from the field for the first time in his career. He has stated recently that he is getting the feeling/rhythm back after shooting below 30% during the first 10 games since his absence.
Bertans is not the most all-around fantasy player given his lack of stocks and assists, but for a big man, he can provide an elite number of threes per game with solid boards and percentages. He is a speculative “must-add" to see if he can keep this hot streak up and normalize his season stats. ➕ Davis Bertans FAAB bid range: 15-20% ➕
Davis Bertans points to lack of rhythm, not conditioning as reason for slump https://t.co/32xIZkuv2k— NBC Sports Wizards (@NBCSWizards) February 4, 2021
Michael Carter-Williams, PG/SG, Orlando Magic (19%)The former Rookie of the Year is the only healthy point guard in Orlando, therefore, he is an add. Is this something you want to do? No. Is this something you have to do? Also, no. Is this something that could help your fantasy team if you’re in need of assists and hopefully punting field goals? Sure. To be fair to MCW, he did miss a large chunk of games since Jan. 4 before returning just over a week ago. He has played in the past four games and is averaging 12.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists, one stock, and almost a three per game. This is not spectacular considering that he is shooting 31.4% from the field and 73.7% from free throw but we know he is all Orlando really has until Cole Anthony returns from his shoulder injury post-All Star Break. ➕ Michael Carter-Williams FAAB bid range: 3-8% ➕
