Fantasy Basketball stock watch - Three players primed for playoffs!
Yahoo Fantasy analyst Dan Titus looks at several players whose fantasy value is on the rise in Week 20.
DAN TITUS: All right, it's week 20. Fantasy playoffs are underway for some, but if they're not, there are still three players whose stock is definitely up, headed into those fantasy playoffs. So, first one, Jaylin Williams, of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
This guy is absolutely on fire right now. Fourth at 9-cat leagues over the last two weeks. News of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's workload going to be monitored towards the end of the season. We know this story. We know this is how this is going to end.
He always gets shut down around this time. But it is perfect for Jaylin Williams, a guy that plays both sides of the ball really well. Second most steals since the trade deadline. So with his efficiency and cross-category appeal, this guy is certainly has the makings of a league winner this season.
Second one, Immanuel Quickley. All right, I got to get some respect to the New York Knicks. This man is looking like the sixth man of the year. Coming off a 55 minute game in double overtime. Securing the victory over the Boston Celtics.
Huge win for the New York Knicks last night, but I mean he's averaging 22 points with four rebounds and six times over his last five. He's still less than 60% roster in Yahoo league. So, if he's somewhere sitting out there on waivers and shallow leagues, pick him up. Because similar to Jaylin Williams, another potential league winner.
And then lastly, Walker Kessler. Another rookie who's absolutely thriving down the stretch for fantasy managers. Averaging 11 points, 13 rebounds, five blocks over his last two weeks. Ninth in 9-cat leagues over that span.
And he's playing over 31 minutes, and I don't see there's any room for him being a shutdown candidate. So, Walker Kessler for sure is definitely one of the best young big men that we have in fantasy. So, really excited to see what he does down the stretch because this is only going to rise his draft stock up ahead of next season.
