DeAndre Bembry- He might be the second best wing to own in Atlanta behind Taurean Prince very soon. His role is growing pretty quickly. 

 
Tyler Cavanaugh- He was impressive on Tuesday, but John Collins (shoulder) could be back as soon as Thursday. 
 
Kent Bazemore- He’s been a hit-or-miss option all season, but can be fun to own if your league doesn’t punish shooting percentages. 
 
Jae Crowder- He’s been better lately, but I’m a bit skeptical after his awful start to the season. 
 
Kyle Korver- He took advantage of Dwyane Wade’s absence, but he’s strictly a 3-point specialist.
 
Frank Ntilikina- He just played the most complete game of his rookie season and dominated in the fourth quarter. It will be a bumpy ride, but Ntilikina is one of my favorite stashes for his upside in steals and assists. 
 
Michael Beasley- He could pick up a lot of the scoring slack while Tim Hardaway Jr. is out. 
 
Malik Beasley- He’s on the radar in deeper leagues with Will Barton tweaking his lower back. Beasley has been outstanding for a couple weeks. 
 
Trey Lyles- Two really strong games in a row, but just a deep-league add for now. Garbage time was a factor on Tuesday. 
 
Boban Marjanovic- After seven straight losses, the Pistons need to find a way to get him more involved. 
 
Caris LeVert- Arguably the top waiver-wire add if possible. Has put together four really good games in a row. 
 
Jarrett Allen- Even when Jahlil Okafor enters rotation, I’m confident that Allen will still have a sizable role. 
 
J.J. Barea and Yogi Ferrell- Dennis Smith Jr. has already been ruled out for the next two games and it’s not a lock that he returns right away. Ferrell usually plays more, but Barea has the higher upside and has been more productive this season. 
 
Richaun Holmes- The 76ers are finally giving him the minutes he deserves, but Philly only plays one more time this week. 
 
Mike James- He’s good for an offensive explosion every once in a while, but he’s also inconsistent. 
 
Alex Len- He’s still the center to own in Phoenix, they just don’t know it yet. 
 
Troy Daniels- Decent low-end streaming option while Devin Booker is out. 
 
Willie Cauley-Stein- Make sure he wasn’t dropped in your league after a 3-game absence.
