Norman Powell, Thaddeus Young and Jarrett Culver are Three Forwards To Pick Up Off Waiver Wire

There are 11 forwards who are projected to be in the top 60 (short term) and who could be available on the waiver wire as they are owned in less than 65% of leagues. Norman Powell is projected for 113 fantasy points in 6 games which is good enough to be ranked #42 and tops among players who could be on the waiver wire based on relative lower ownership percentage. Other considerations at forward include Thaddeus Young and Jarrett Culver. There are 15 forwards whose projected rank over the next 10 days is much better than their season-to-date rank. Paul George, at #8, is the highest ranking forward of this 'must start' group. There are only 6 forwards who are projected to be short term fantasy busts. Nemanja Bjelica, for example, is projected to be just the #60 forward during the upcoming stretch and some owners may have better options.
