Trey Lyles

For some reason, he’s making his second appearance on the Waiver Wire. Lyles has been on a tear! He put up 19.3 points, 8.6 rebounds and three 3-pointers in three games last week. Still, he is owned in 44% of Yahoo! leagues and that number should be a lot higher. Playing on a Denver team that is 8th in offensive efficiency, according to ESPN.com, should continue yielding great production for Lyles.

 

Gerald Green

For a guy that was looking for work back in 2017, he’s not doing too shabby in 2018. Averaging 16.8 points and 4.2 3-pointers this season is great value on the wire. Granted, that production will inevitably take a hit when James Harden returns, but who knows how the team will treat its franchise star. In the meantime, enjoy his dunks, 3-pointers and weird hair-do’s!

 

Michael Beasley

It seems like we mention Michael Beasley for about a month every NBA season, then he falls off a cliff. For the time being, he’s worth an add. He’s averaging 19.2 points, nine rebounds and 1.4 steals over his last five games. It’s been noted that Kristaps Porzingis is all-around tired, so Beasley might get some additional run.
