Fantasy Basketball Week 6 Waiver Wire: Cameron Payne, Aleksej Pokusevski, Seth Curry among the targets

Welcome back to the wire. There's another strong pool of pickup candidates this week, mixing in a combination of new and repeat names. Something to be on the lookout for next week – the NBA is off for Thanksgiving, which means a packed slate on Wednesday (12 games) and Friday (14 games). Streaming for those days is impossible, so it's a good time to hold some upside guys on your bench while you get two extra games of information about them. Additionally, it means that waiver pickups effectively don't add any value on those days. At first glance, the Raptors' and Rockets' two-game week might negatively impact potential pickups' values. However, 22 teams play both Wednesday and Friday, while Toronto and Houston play only one of those days, and both are on Saturday's light 4-game slate. They actually have more daily-lineups-league value than the Bulls, Pelicans, and Wizards, whose three games are all on hectic nights.
