Week 6 Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire

By Adam McGill

The fantasy basketball season has been flying by in 2012, with the playoffs approaching in just over a month.  To help you make that push towards the playoffs, here is the latest edition of my fantasy basketball waiver wire:

Small Leagues: 8-10 man leagues

PG Devin Harris, UTA – The former Wisconsin Badger has played much stronger in recent weeks.  He looks more confident with his jump shot, but he needs to get more than 25 minutes a game from head coach Tyrone Corbin to be a consistent fantasy contributor.

SG Vince Carter, DAL – “Vinsanity” was the most added player in all basketball leagues this past week.  He is finally starting with the Mavs’ recent injury woes, and has scored 42 points with 7 3-pointers in the last two games alone.

SF Michael Beasley, MIN – Beasley is finally healthy following a nagging foot sprain and is back in the Timberwolves’ starting five.  He has 52 points and 15 boards in his last two games.

PF Trevor Booker, WSH – Booker has been the only bright spot in the Wizards’ offense; as he has posted 30 points, 4 steals, and 3 blocks in the last two games.

C Drew Gooden, MIL – “Goodyear” has replaced the injured Andrew Bogut, after the Australian star broke his ankle last week.  Gooden has made three straight starts, averaging 20.6 points in just over 31 minutes a game.

Large Leagues: 10-14 man leagues

PG Rodrigue Beaubois, DAL – “Ro Beau” has been a pleasant surprise for owners’ desperate for dimes, with at least seven assists in each of the last three games.

SG Jerryd Bayless, TOR – Bayless is back starting in Toronto and scored 49 points in his last three contests.  He is a very tenacious shooting guard, who will consistently score and battle for every rebound.

SF Austin Daye, DET – Daye has been spectacular off the bench for Detroit, by averaging 13.8 points in the last five games.

PF Channing Frye, PHO – Frye is back in the Suns’ starting lineup and is one of the most versatile big man in the game, as he can also knock down 3-pointers.  He tends to get in foul trouble, but if he can remedy that than he can be a very valuable addition in deeper leagues.

C Matt Bonner, SA – Bonner may not play many minutes, but he knows how to make the most of his limited playing time.  He has averaged 12 points in the last six games, including a staggering 20 3-pointers in that span.
