NBA Fantasy Pickups: Everything You Need To Know For Week 4

Week 4 is going to be an interesting week because there are no real advantages in the schedule. There are no five-game teams this week but if you grab any Warrior players they have a five-gamer in Week 5.

As we head into Week 4 of the 2018-19 season here's the weekly game breakdown:

4 Games: ATL, BOS, DEN, DET, HOU, IND, MIA, MIL, NYK, OKC, ORL,

3 Games: BKN, CHA, CHI, CLE, DAL, GSW, LAC, LAL, MEM, MIN, NOP, PHI, PHX, POR, SAC, TOR, UTA, WAS

2 Games: SAS

Here are recommended pickups for Week 4 of the NBA Fantasy Season:

Guards:

Isaiah Canaan Phoenix Suns 

Via Sporting News

Elie Okobo hasn’t been given the keys to the Suns’ car. Canaan returned from his ankle injury on Friday night and hit eight-of-12 shots and two three-pointers for 19 points and two assists. Canaan should have some good scoring games and is a temporary add for points and three-pointers.

Josh Okogie Minnesota Timberwolves  

Via Dunking with Wolves

Okogie has hit double digits in scoring in three straight games and is averaging almost 30 minutes a game over his last five. This rookie is letting He’s averaging 11.2 points, 5.6 rebound, 1.4 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 3-pointers over his last five games. Okogie’s has been fun to watch.

Garrett Temple Memphis Grizzlies 

Via Grizzly Bear Blues

Temple’s hit double digits in scoring in three straight games and has hit six 3-pointers during that window. He’s averaging 11.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers. However, over his last five games, those numbers jumped to 15.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, a steal, and 2.0 3-pointers over his last three (all Memphis wins).

Forwards:

Rodney Hood Cleveland Cavaliers

Via King James Gospel

Hood can be very inconsistent. He blew up for 26 points and four three-pointers on Tuesday, but then laid a 1-of-9 egg on Thursday and then hit just 3-of-8 shots on Saturday. With Kevin Love down and out after having toe surgery, Hood’s the guy to own. But if he’s unavailable in your league, Sam Dekker, and especially Larry Nance also makes sense for a pickup.

Justise Winslow Miami Heat 

Via Hot Hot Hoops

Winslow had a season-high 15 points along with 10 rebounds, eight assists, two steals, two blocks, and two three-pointers on Saturday against the Hawks in a rare start when Goran Dragic sat out with a toe injury. Winslow is worth a look for as long as Dragic is out. Winslow and the Heat have four games this week. And yes, if Rodney McGruder is somehow available don't walk, run to pick him up.

Pascal Siakam Toronto Raptors

Via Sportsnet

We picked up Siakam before the season thinking he'd breakout because of him expanding his range over the summer; turns out we were right. He's averaging 10.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per game while shooting 60.9 percent from the field. If Siakam can start hitting from deep as he started to in the summer, he'll take another big step as a fantasy asset.

Centers

Mitchell Robinson New York Knicks 

Via SPIN.

In his first four games as a starter, Robinson averaged 7.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 blocks per game while shooting 68.4 percent from the field. He replaced Kanter, and Robinson now has a chance to be a nightly double-double threat while also providing blocks and steals for fantasy owners.

Boban Marjanovic Los Angeles Clippers 

Via Clips Nation

Boban has seen a bump over his last four games, including a start for a missing Marcin Gortat(undisclosed) on Friday night. Over that four-game span, Boban has averaged 10.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.5 steals, 2.0 blocks, and 2.3 turnovers in only 16.8 minutes per contest, while shooting 69.6 percent from the field and 57.9 percent from the free throw line. If Gortat misses more time or his struggles cause him to drop down to the rotation, Boban could be in for a productive stretch. He's worth a flier regardless because of the PPM (points per minute) he can produce.
