• Short, sweet and straight to business, here are the (under 60% owned) players to consider adding based on Saturday’s 8-game slate.

    Derrick White (43%)
    Saturday’s Line: 27 MIN, 8-9 FG, 2-2 FT, 19 PTS, 4 REB, 1 STL, 1 BLK, 1 3PM, 2 TO
    White has been producing across the entire stat sheet the last two weeks for top-20 value and does it again tonight. While this type of production will not last, can he maintain top-50 value going forward? It’s worth a shot to found out.
    Recommendation: 10 Team Leagues

    Al-Farouq Aminu (56%)
    Saturday’s Line: 30 MIN, 3-6 FG, 7 PTS, 8 REB, 2 AST, 1 STL, 1 3PM, 0 TO
    Has been a top-100 guy all season so not sure why he is owned in only 56% of leagues.
    Recommendation: 10-12 Team Leagues

    Justin Holiday (55%)
    Saturday’s Line: 21 MIN, 1-7 FG, 2 PTS, 2 REB, 2 AST, 0 TO
    This is less of a pickup recommendation and more of a don’t drop recommendation. First game with new team was disappointing but let’s give him at least a couple more before giving up on someone that’s been a top-50 player all year. Garrett Temple and Dillon Brooks are his only real competition for minutes.
    Recommendation: 10-12 Team Leagues

    Marvin Williams (52%)
    Saturday’s Line: 34 MIN, 6-15 FG, 1-2 FT, 16 PTS, 6 REB, 3 STL, 1 BLK, 3 3PM, 3 TO
    A little volatile but has value in standard leagues with near-top-100 value on the season, averaging 1.9 triples, 0.9 steals and 0.7 blocks. 3.5 Cash counting stats per game is not bad at all.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    Wesley Matthews (38%)
    Saturday’s line: 24 MIN, 7-11 FG, 18 PTS, 2 REB, 4 3PM, 0 TO
    Top-140 value on the season with 14.0 points, 2.4 triples and 0.9 steals. Should be rostered in higher percentage of leagues.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    Bismack Biyombo (6%)
    Saturday’s Line: 30 MIN, 7-10 FG, 2-3 FT, 16 PTS, 12 REB, 2 STL, 2 BLK, 2 TO
    Jumped over Willy for the starting job tonight and for all we know, it might stick for the next 4-6 weeks. Should be picked up just in case and although he won’t produce like tonight every game, he has had runs of similar stat-lines in the past.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    Danny Green (48%)
    Saturday’s Line: 41 MIN, 5-7 FG, 12 PTS, 9 REB, 1 STL, 1 BLK 2 3PM, 2 TO
    A reliable top-100 guy for most of the season, Green has been ice cold for the last two weeks and may have been dropped in many leagues. Maybe tonight’s game helps him get back on track.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    Bryn Forbes (34%)
    Saturday’s Line: 30 MIN, 2-7 FG, 2-2 FT, 7 PTS, 1 REB, 2 AST, 1 STL, 1 3PM, 1 TO
    Forbes failed to hit two triples for the first time in the last 10 games but has been a fairly consistent top-100 value over the last three weeks and with his minutes safe, is way under-owned at 34%. Is somewhat of a three-point specialist but strong percentages to go along.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    Austin Rivers (14%)
    Saturday’s Line: 42 MIN, 8-15 FG, 21 PTS, 1 REB, 1 AST, 5 3PM, 1 TO
    Has played big minutes (38.1) since joining the Rockets six games games ago and has been nothing more than three-point specialist in that span with 2.8 per game. Huge minutes won’t be there all season as Eric Gordon and Chris Paul should eventually return.
    Recommendation: 12 Team Leagues

    JaMychal Green (17%)
    Saturday’s Line: 29 MIN, 2-8 FG, 3-3 FT, 8 PTS, 10 REB, 1 STL, 1 3PM, 4 TO
    Green disappointed with ample opportunity last year but is now surprisingly a better fantasy asset in 5 less minutes per game. Has been a top-150 guy this year with so-so lines like tonight.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Willy Hernangomez (21%)
    Saturday’s Line: 16 MIN, 3-7 FG, 4-4 FT, 10 PTS, 5 REB, 1 AST, 0 TO
    Was an obvious pickup with Cody Zeller missing the next 4-6 weeks but the coach still refuses to give him minutes. Still worth a flier with the hope for a potential breakout game.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Jae Crowder (41%)
    Saturday’s Line: 26 MIN, 1-8 FG, 2-3 FT, 4 PTS, 5 REB, 3 AST, 3 STL, 1 TO
    Very pedestrian line tonight but still maintaining top-150 value in standard leagues thanks to his 2.1 triples per game and random outbursts like the 30 he put up against the Raptors two games ago.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Reggie Bullock (18%)
    Saturday’s Line: 39 MIN, 7-14 FG, 19 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 5 3PM, 2 TO
    Got 39 minutes even with all the other wings healthy. Has been a very reliable three-point shooter but sadly that’s really all he is good for in fantasy. At 2.4 triples on the season and 3.3 over last four games, he should be considered.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    T.J. McConnell (7%)
    Saturday’s Line: 29 MIN, 2-5 FG, 2-4 FT, 6 PTS, 1 REB, 4 AST, 3 STL, 1 TO
    Poor line salvaged by three steals. Deserves consideration with over 25 mpg in each of the last four with 2.5 steals and a 60.0 FG% for near top-100 value.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Fred Van Vleet (54%)
    Saturday’s Line: 35 MIN, 6-12 FG, 4-4 FT, 21 PTS, 5 REB, 8 AST, 1 BLK, 5 3PM, 0 TO
    Finally has the big line everyone was waiting for while starting but Lowry should be able to return next game. Nonetheless, VanVleet should retain a 25-30 minute per game role for top-150 value and tonight’s game may be the turning point of a somewhat disappointing season.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Alec Burks (10%)
    Saturday’s Line: 36 MIN, 2-9 FG, 2-2 FT, 8 PTS, 3 REB, 6 AST, 1 STL, 2 3PM, 1 TO
    Has held top-150 value over last two weeks but just not a very exciting option.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Kevon Looney (6%)
    Saturday’s Line: 24 MIN, 2-2 FG, 1-1 FT, 5 PTS, 7 REB, 3 AST, 2 BLK, 0 TO
    Should hover around top-150 per-game value until DeMarcus Cousins’ debut.
    Recommendation: 12-14 Team Leagues

    Collin Sexton (49%)
    Saturday’s Line: 31 MIN, 5-12 FG 3-4 FT, 15 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 2 3PM, 3 TO
    Has been decent in scoring all season without much in the other categories. The 2.3 triples per game over last three is encouraging and maybe he keeps it up.
    Recommendation: 14 Team Leagues

    Cedi Osman (23%)
    Saturday’s Line: 33 MIN, 5-12 FG, 1-1 FT, 13 PTS, 1 REB, 5 AST, 3 STL, 2 3PM, 3 TO
    Too inconsistent to warrant anything other than a spot start in standard leagues but at least you know the minutes are there.
    Recommendation: 14 Team Leagues

Fantasy News

  • Brandon Sampson - G - Chicago Bulls

    Brandon Sampson tied his career-high with seven points on Saturday night, adding a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in a career-high 17 minutes.

    The steal and block are also career-highs for Sampson, who has appeared in five games this season. At least the night was notable for someone on the Bulls, who lost by 31.

  • Josh Okogie - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie filled up the stat sheet with 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting while adding six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and a 3-pointer against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Lines like this flash his potential and the damage he can do once he gets it together. Although, he's been known for his inconsistency but that comes with being a rookie. Fantasy owners can take a hard look at him if they have a streaming spot open and if the remaining games are in favor of Okogie blowing up or at least put up a respectable line.

  • Rudy Gobert - C - Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert had an easy night of work on Saturday against the Bulls, overpowering them for 21 points (9-of-11 FG, 3-of-7 FT, 14 rebounds and four blocks in just 26 minutes.

    The Jazz were up by 34 at the half, nearly doubling the Bulls with the score 70-36 through two quarters. It meant that the Jazz had a lot of good-but-not great lines. Donovan Mitchell had 16 points, eight rebounds, three dimes and a pair of threes, Joe Ingles went for 13-6-5 with two threes of his own and Ricky Rubio went 6-of-11 from the field for 12 points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal. No starter played more than 27 minutes in this cakewalk.

  • Tyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, nine dimes and a steal in 35 minutes on Saturday.

    With Jeff Teague (left foot) and Derrick Rose (left elbow) out for the rest of the season, Jones will be able to put up lines like this and reward fantasy owners who snagged him early. The steals and assists will always be consistent but the field goal shooting has never been that great to begin with.

  • Jae Crowder - F - Utah Jazz

    Jae Crowder came off the bench for 11 points, six rebounds, four assists, a steal and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes on Saturday night.

    The Bulls barely showed up so a lot of guys had muted lines in limited run, but not Crowder. He's a solid option in 9-cat leagues for threes, rebounds and some steals, but he's not must-own by any stretch. Ekpe Udoh had four blocks in eight minutes, Thabo Sefolosha grabbed three steals in 15 minutes and Raul Neto scored 10 points in 15 minutes to highlight some other solid bench performances.

  • Mike Conley - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Mike Conley scored 23 points with three assists, three rebounds and two triples in a 99-112 loss against the Wolves on Saturday.

    Conley has been posting top-12 value in the past month with averages of 25.7 points on 48.4 percent shooting, 2.6 triples, 3.5 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.1 steals. With the Grizzlies not fighting for a playoff spot, a shut down from the coaching staff might be imminent to keep him fresh heading into next season.

  • Trae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young cooked the Sixers for 32 points (11-of-20 shooting), six rebounds, 11 assists, a block, four 3-pointers and the game-winning floater with 0.1 seconds left in Saturday's 129-127 win.

    Young has made tremendous strides over the course of the season and doesn't shy away from big moments. His game-winner saw him blast past Jimmy Butler towards Joel Embiid in the paint, but he calmly dropped in his runner. Six turnovers are the only blemish on tonight's line but Young looks ready to scorch everyone who was making fun of the Hawks early on. Atlanta's a fun team to watch with a great young core, and their fans should be very excited about the future.

  • Joakim Noah - C - Memphis Grizzlies

    Joakim Noah (right knee) went to the locker room and didn't return in Saturday's game against the Wolves.

    Before the premature ending to his night, he posted a line of five points, five rebounds, three assists on 1-of-4 shooting. He's been a top-90 value in the past month with averages of 11.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.2 blocks and 55.1 percent shooting from the field.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince put up 23 points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in Saturday's home win.

    Prince went 8-of-15 from the field and was second on the team with 31 minutes played. He's found his form again recently, and while it might be too little too late for a lot of fantasy owners you should make sure that Prince isn't on the wire anywhere given his solid few weeks.

  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins posted 13 points and nine rebounds against the Sixers on Saturday night but also came through with a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Collins' defensive numbers have lagged for much of the season and it's nice to see him go on a bit of a run lately, even if it's at the expense of his usually-gaudy numbers in scoring and rebounding. Although he's averaging only 0.6 blocks on the season, Collins has at least one swat in seven of his last nine and 1.3 per game in the month of March. Here's hoping it keeps up over the season's final handful of games.
