January 19, 2019, 10:00 pmDomantas Sabonis - F - Indiana Pacers
Domantis Sabonis put up 16 points (7-of-8 shooting) with 11 rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer to cap off the night.
Sabonis has been hovering around the top-60 over the past two weeks and the Pacers have been happy all season with the consistent production he gives them nightly. One interesting note in tonight's game was that he just made his sixth 3-pointer for the season after not making one in the past month and a half. It's always nice to see players make developments in their game and we hope to see more threes coming in the next season should he choose to focus on that.
January 19, 2019, 9:53 pmTerrence Ross - G/F - Orlando Magic
Terrence Ross led the Magic bench with 16 points on 7-of-15 shooting, adding one rebound, two assists, two triples and two steals in a 108-118 blowout loss to the Bucks on Saturday.
Ross has been one of the Magic's pillars of consistency in recent games, That said, as a streaky shooter, Ross has fallen off in some spots this season, so it would be best to ride out his run while he's got the hot hand.
January 19, 2019, 9:47 pmMyles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner had eight points with 12 rebounds, a steal and three blocks in 24 minutes in Saturday's game.
Turner is currently sitting around top 10-15 value after coming back from his injury last January 15. It’s a small sample size but it just goes to show how Turner’s colossal defensive impact this season has been serving both the Pacers and managers who took a chance on him well.
January 19, 2019, 9:41 pmJonathon Simmons - F - Orlando Magic
Jonathon Simmons replaced Aaron Gordon (back tightness) in the starting lineup on Saturday and posted a quiet 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and two triples in 19 minutes.
Simmons may have started but Gordon's minutes were also distributed to Jarrell Martin (12 points on 4-of-5 shooting, four treys) who played 19 minutes and Wesley Iwundu (zero points, four boards), who logged 16 minutes. Out of the lot, Simmons holds the best short-term value but it's for 16-team deep leagues at best.
January 19, 2019, 9:40 pmVictor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers
Victor Oladipo shot 4-of-15 from the field on Saturday, scoring 12 points and adding three rebounds and three assists to his tally.
Oladipo hasn't been living up to the hype, especially after being pegged as a first-round ADP at the start of the 2018-2019 season. Nonetheless, he's still posting top-40 to top-50 value in the past two weeks and should be staying around that vicinity until he turns the corner. The injury bug's way behind already and we still think Oladipo can sniff his way back to the top-20 if the all-star break seems beneficial for his overall health.
January 19, 2019, 9:35 pmNikola Vucevic - C - Orlando Magic
Nikola Vucevic did his best to carry the Magic on Saturday with his 27 points (11-of-24 shooting), six rebounds, four assists, two triples and two blocks, but came up short as they ended up getting blown out by the Bucks.
Whether he's bearing the bulk of the scoring load or sharing it with Aaron Gordon (DNP-back tightness) and Evan Fournier (11 points on 5-of-14 shooting and five assists), Vucevic has proven he can deliver top-10 value, making him one of the more bankable big men in fantasy this season.
January 19, 2019, 9:35 pmDarren Collison - G - Indiana Pacers
Darren Collision tallied 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting (2-of-3 3PTS, 4-of-5 FTs) with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block against the Mavs.
Collison registered the least minutes(23) amongst the starters since the bench took care of the lead the team has built in the first half and never looked back. The ejection of Luka Doncic helped in securing this win as well but not to take anything from Collison's line. Currently a must-own player in all formats after starting off slow at the start of the season.
January 19, 2019, 9:25 pmJuancho Hernangomez - F - Denver Nuggets
Juancho Hernangomez (abdominal strain) will not be suiting up against the Cavs on Saturday.
Hernangomez has been playing through this injury for some time now and his playing time in the past month has been cut short to 16.5 minutes a game. Leave him on your waivers unless you're in a really deep league and in need of some rebounds.

January 19, 2019, 9:25 pmJonathan Isaac - F - Orlando Magic
Despite the absence of Aaron Gordon (back tightness), Jonathan Isaac did not make much of a splash on Saturday with just six points (3-of-6) shooting, adding six boards, two assists and one steal in 29 minutes.
Isaac moved up to power forward with Jonathon Simmons sliding into the starting lineup but did not make much of an impact. We've extolled his upside based on per-minute averages but cannot anyone for losing patience with him after his failure to rise to the occasion in this one.
January 19, 2019, 9:09 pmTJ Warren - F - Phoenix Suns
TJ Warren scored 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting, adding a steal, two blocks with a 3-pointer in 34 minutes of action.
Warren is posting top-70 value in the past month and would be garnering more attention from fans if he was in a bigger market. You can sell his consistent production across all categories to other managers when trying to convince them to let go of their early-round players.
January 19, 2019, 8:59 pmMikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns
Mikal Bridges scored nine points on 3-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with three steals and a block in 26 minutes of action.
Bridges has the capacity to hold mid-round value because of his consistent defensive production. He is as inconsistent as they come but is still hovering in the top 120-130 range in the past two weeks. Let's see if his production would change once everyone gets their rest after the all-star break.
January 19, 2019, 8:47 pmKelly Oubre Jr. - F - Phoenix Suns
Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 24 points off the bench in Saturday's blowout loss to the Hornets, hitting 9-of-15 shots (4-of-8 3PTs) with three rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes.
Oubre has been a top-150 player in the past week and games like this are what make managers salivate over his fantasy potential. Ever since Jan. 6, Oubre has been tallying minutes in the 20-30 range and taking advantage of the opportunity given to him by Coach Igor Kokoškov.
January 19, 2019, 8:39 pmDevin Booker - G - Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker scored 32 points with 11 assists in a game-high 38 minutes in a loss over the Hornets on Saturday.
Surprisingly, Booker did not turnover the ball in today's game much to the delight of his owners. The 38 minutes he tallied was three more than what he registered in the previous game and is assuring us that the back spasms he endured lately might be behind him already. Injuries have been plaguing him this year but we hope that this is the last of it.
January 19, 2019, 8:32 pmMarvin Williams - F - Charlotte Hornets
Marvin Williams scored 14 points on 4-of-7 shooting with four rebounds, two assists and a block against the Suns on Saturday.
Williams has been trending in the top-100 for the past two weeks. His threes and sneaky defensive stats are what solidify his value and make him a must-own guy in all formats. Over the past week, Old Man Marv has been tallying 10.5 points on 50% shooting, 3.0 threes, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.5 blocks a game.
January 19, 2019, 8:13 pmLuc Mbah a Moute - F - Los Angeles Clippers
Luc Mbah a Moute (sore knee) will not be playing against the Spurs on Saturday.
Mbah a Moute will miss Saturday's game against the Spurs and should not be in anyone's lineup until we see any relevant production from him.
