On the Rise: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist


For this week’s edition, my latest add off the wire has us traveling to NC. The Bobcats have basically always sucked, but hey Michael Kidd Gilchrist!!


Of course I’m right. If you’ve been following along, my waiver wire adds have been pretty good so far. Spencer Hawes is currently ranked no. 6 overall in fantasy. Miles Plumlee had a tiny slump, but is back strong, scoring better than 20 fantasy points in his last two outings, and sitting at No. 33 overall in the rankings. Lance Stephenson has had a couple bad games too, but continues to score and hit threes, and I believe he’ll be back to normal real soon.

This week’s edition features a SF from Charlotte, who has averaged 22 fantasy points through his last three games. I would like to see him get more minutes, as he’s only logging 29 per right now, but given how effective he’s been scoring, as well as rebounds and blocks, I think we could see an increase in his minutes. As we speak, he is only owned in 33.8% of leagues right now, and I think that’ll be changing shortly.

    • Thanks for the read and comment! I’d agree with you there. Still waiting on that game when his 3 blocks, 2 assists, and 8 boards happen on the same night. He’s young, though, and I could see him getting some double-doubles down the line.
