Albeit the first week, you want to take notice of the small sample size, just not read too much into it. There will be a few guys who go off for about five games and come February, those games will be a distant memory. Though, every year at least three to four guys completely kick open the door to fantasy relevance. At the end of your season usually one or two of these players are on the winning squad. Acquiring these assets takes awareness, and frankly, a touch of luck. Because let’s be honest, if we knew mid round production was possible from these sources, they would have been drafted. Here are some guys I think have a strong shot to become fantasy darlings for the 2014/15 NBA season.
Early waiver predictions for 2014-2015 fantasy basketball
Ed Davis, LAL PF/C
With the injury sustained to Julius Randle, the door has crept open a little wider for Davis. Now behind the likes of Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill, he is exactly one inevitable affliction away from finding himself at 30+ minutes a night. His rebounding and scoring may not be as prominent as the ability to block shots, but he can certainly find a low range double double on most nights-adding a few blocks and a steal, if those minutes come his way. Blocks are a sought after commodity, being able to add two per game off the wire would get any fantasy basketball enthusiast excited.
