Here’s the weekly breakdown of players you need to pick up on waivers with less than 50% rostered in Yahoo leagues.
  • Keyonte George, PG/SG, Utah Jazz (43% rostered): If you need a point guard averaging over 10 points and almost nine assists per game, then George is a must-add in all leagues.
  • Skylar Mays, SG, Portland Trail Blazers (49% rostered): A reliable player while waiting for others to return, Mays has been performing exceptionally, ranking as a top 80 player over the past two weeks with nearly 12 points, three rebounds, and eight assists per game.
  • Dyson Daniels, PG/SG, New Orleans Pelicans (45% rostered): Daniels continues to impress, delivering consistent rebounds, assists, and steals for fantasy managers in CJ McCollum’s absence.
  • Santi Aldama, PF/C, Memphis Grizzlies (44% rostered): With outstanding performances in Week 4, Aldama has proven himself to be an asset worth adding, especially if Xavier Tillman Sr. remains out.

Here are some short-term streamable options for Week 5:

  • Saddiq Bey, SF/PF, Atlanta Hawks (35% rostered): Bey is a reliable source of threes, points, rebounds, and steals, making him a valuable addition for the week.
  • Cam Reddish, SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers (32% rostered): Reddish has been contributing significantly, particularly with his steals and three-point shooting, making him a worthy selection for your lineups.
  • Bilal Coulibaly, SF, Washington Wizards (25% rostered): With an expanding playing time, Coulibaly is shooting well from the field and offering valuable stocks and triples for fantasy managers.

For deeper streams in Week 5, consider adding these players to your squad:

  • Cole Anthony, PG/SG, Orlando Magic (36% rostered)
  • Jonathan Isaac, SF/PF, Orlando Magic (21% rostered)
  • Nicolas Batum, SF/PF, Philadelphia 76ers (5% rostered)

Rotation Notes

  • Grayson Allen and Eric Gordon’s minutes will rise, and most of the usage will spread among Devin Booker and Kevin Durant. Both are useful for threes, steals, and low-end assists.
  • Desmond Bane’s usage is increasing, and Jacob Gilyard looks to be in a great spot to fill in at PG, so keep an eye on their performance.
  • Jonathan Kuminga and Dario Saric are filling in for Green while he’s suspended.

Schedule Notes

  • The best streaming days are Tuesday and Saturday in Week 5.
  • Thanksgiving is Thursday, so no hoops!
  • 15 teams play four games, 12 teams play three games, and three teams play two games.
