Week Seven Waiver Wire Options

Small Forward: T.J. Warren and the Suns have four games this week and over his past five games he’s averaging 15.8 points, 5 rebounds, 1.2 steals on 26.4 minutes per night coming off of the Suns bench.

Over his last 2 games he’s averaging 28 minutes and knocked down three triples a night to go along with 4.5 rebounds, 1 assist and a steal.
