As with every fantasy basketball season, point guards are once again at a premium while big men are anything but. This week's waiver market is littered with big men and for good reason. First, big guys are more likely to get hurt which opens the door for bench players to step in often. Second, their proximity to the basket gives them automatic points and rebounds, a point guard doesn't get automatic assist increases, they have to make them happen. When someone like Anthony Davis or Marc Gasol goes down, you need to immediately get on that waiver wire and dial up their replacements.
