Fantasy Basketball Week 6 (1/29 - 2/4)

Pickup of the Week:
Kemba Walker (70% Yahoo) - 12 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists (16 points, 7 rebounds 4.6 assists last 5 games)


Teams Playing 5 Games:

Detroit Pistons (4-17) - The Pistons are the proud owners of the worst offense in all of the NBA.  Ok so maybe they are not proud but they do have a back-back-back to look forward too with 3 road games starting in Milwaukee and ending against the Knicks and Nets.  After a night off they get to host the Bucks and Hornets.  Greg Monroe is still having a breakout season and is averaging 15.8 points and 9.5 rebounds on the season.   Rookie Brandon Knight has been giving fantasy owners a little bit of everything putting up 13 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists a night.  Over his last 5 he has raised his averages to 14, 4 and 4.



Memphis Grizzlies (10-9) - Memphis has lost 3 in a row after winning 7 straight.  They are averaging just 86 points/night during this losing streak.  With matchups against the Spurs, Hawks, Thunder and Celtics, you can expect this trend to continue.  The only saving point this week might be their matchup against the uptempo Nuggets.  Marc Gasol has been filling the stat sheet the past 5 games with 15 points 10 rebounds 3 assists and 2 blocks.  However during that span he has been shooting below 50% from the field. 




Everybody else plays 4 games except for the Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Bobcats, Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings who play just 3.

  • The Chicago Bulls play all 4 games on the road
    • The Charlotte Bobcats play all 3 on the road
