Thanksgiving Week hits Fantasy NBA with only six days of games this week (no games Thursday). 

This means games get packed in on Wednesday and Friday to make up for the off day, making streaming harder to achieve.

'WORST EVER': NBA fans roast $962 million name change

'NEVER SEEN THAT': NBA fans stunned by 'bizarre' Steph Curry moment

There are still some interesting guys to grab this week though:

Patrick Beverley

I don’t see Beverley leaving the Wolves starting lineup except for injury. 

He’s a top 115 player in the last two weeks and could push to the top 100. 

The Wolves have four games this week as well.

Jarred Vanderbilt

Minnesota has some stability with Vanderbilt in the starting five. 

I don’t expect him to blow us away, but he has also gotten some backup centre minutes and the weekly schedule makes him a solid add for the short-term.

Darius Bazley

Bazley is wildly inconsistent, but his game is solid in a points league, and he is woefully under-rostered. 

Fix that if he is floating in your league.

Talen Horton-Tucker

It was a bad start to his season next to LeBron James, after looking great before LeBron’s return. 

But, I think the reality of his numbers sits somewhere in the middle and LeBron is no guarantee to remain healthy. 

THT is a guy to add if available.

Alperen Şengün

During the week, we had Stephen Silas taker him out of the rotation for one game. 

It was stupid then and it is stupid now. But he is back, outplaying Daniel Theis and looking good doing it.

This is more a long-term situation, but I find it hard to believe that Şengün won’t be starting this season. 

If you can sit on a guy, Şengün is the one to sit on.

Chimezie Metu 

We don’t know if Luke Walton, or the new unnamed Kings coach, will keep starting him, but I think he’s looked solid in his role the majority of the time. 

I like a good points/rebounds type of player and that is what Metu is and he’s better than Marvin Bagley III. 

Worth an add to see if he can cement a starting spot.

Cam Reddish

With De’Andre Hunter out, more minutes and shots head to Reddish and Kevin Huerter.

In a points league, Reddish’s usage makes him more of a priority.

Kevin Huerter

As I mentioned with Reddish, Huerter gets a bump with no Hunter and will be the Hawks’ starter. 

He is a strong addition for 12 team leagues.

Alec Burks

Burks has been the Knicks’ best guard over the last week or so. 

Better than Evan Fournier, Derrick Rose, and Kemba Walker. 

Tom Thijbode committed to playing him over 25 a night, but he is being so productive that I don’t mind adding him to see where it goes, despite only three games this week.
