OK guys we’ve been talking about it for a while, but now it really is that time of year. All leagues will be completed on the last day of the NBA regular season, April 16th.
With that being said, I would like to recommend 3 teams that have favorable matchups the last 7 days (10th-16th) of the year: the Houston Rockets, the Memphis Grizzlies and the Portland Trailblazers. Here’s how their schedules are looking the rest of the way:
Grizzlies: MIA, MIN, POR, DEN
Blazers: SAC, DAL, MEM, PHO
*I’ve highlighted those games that I believe will be high scoring and very favorable for fantasy owners.
So start scouring the waiver wires and look for players on these teams. It’s the final stretch so max out your games played in roto leagues (assuming you don’t need to worry about TO’s, FG% and FT%) and drop big name players if necessary. Don’t be afraid to drop a big ticket player if he is going to be rested until the playoffs. Make intelligent, rational decisions and have no regrets.
Contrary to what I stated yesterday, you probably do not(!) want to pickup a Knicks (Wilson Chandler) or a SuperSonics player, as each of those teams have unfavorable schedules through the 16th.
Good luck and let me know if I missed a team you think is going to be dangerous. For daily pickups and other fantasy basketball advice, sign up for our free RSS feed.
