• Al-Farouq Aminu
    F, Portland Trail Blazers

    Al-Farouq Aminu put up 16 points with eight rebounds on 5-of-6 shooting in a 129-95 blowout win over the Sixers on Sunday.

    He put up these numbers in just 22 minutes of action as the Blazers were able to rest some of their starters in the second half. Aminu is just outside the top-100 on the season and is putting up solid late-round value. He should hover around the top-100 range and is worth owning in most formats for his rebounding and defensive stats.

Fantasy News

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns had a quiet double-double in Wednesday's 103-95 loss to the Jazz, finishing with 14 points, 12 rebounds, one assist, one block and four 3-pointers.

    This would be a stellar night for most players, but KAT is not most players. If this is a slow game for him, owners should be rejoicing. KAT is one of the best in the game and the team knows if it wants to win, he needs to be involved more. He had a tough matchup going up against Gobert in this one, and should continue his dominance moving forward.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins returned to the lineup on Wednesday to the tune of 22 points on 10-for-24 shooting, seven boards, three assists and a three.

    Wiggins was the team's leading scorer and shot reasonably well. He would have had a great night from the field had it not been his 1-of-10 shooting from deep. Currently sitting at top-40 value, Wiggins owners have to be loving the production they are seeing this season.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Christian Wood was sighted being productive on Wednesday, chipping in 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting with 10 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in just 18 minutes of action.

    This was a tantalizing line coming from Wood, who has been inconsistently teasing managers with explosions of value this season. Until he can show he can do this regularly, or if Blake Griffin is sidelined with an injury (again), Wood is not worth using in standard leagues.

  • Robert Covington
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Robert Covington put together a strong defensive outing, picking up two steals and three blocks to go along with 11 points and three boards on Wednesday.

    The five defensive stats are great to see, and while it's above his season average, there's no reason to think these kind of nights are a fluke. RoCo is looking primed to be a top-50 player this season.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Andre Drummond shot uncharacteristically poor from the field on Wednesday, going 3-for-10 for six points in a loss to the Bulls.

    Drummond made up for his low-scoring output with contributions in other areas. He added 14 rebounds, four assists, two steals and three blocks in his 34 minutes on the floor. He's been a top-15 player in 9-cat this season, so we expect a bounce-back performance from the big guy soon.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague had a rough night shooting, going 2-of-9 for 12 points to go along with four rebounds and six assists on Wednesday

    Teague is floating right around top-120 value with a chance to get into the top-100. He should have better nights than this one and his ability to collect assists should carry him a bit.

  • Alec Burks
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Alec Burks scored 11 inefficient points on Wednesday, going 3-of-11 from the floor while adding four rebounds, four assists, a steal and a triple in 29 minutes.

    Burks has always been an inconsistent fantasy player, and the bigger role he’s seeing now hasn’t changed that too much. Nobody on the Warriors could do a thing tonight so he gets a pass, but he’s a tough guy to rely on night in and night out.

  • Eric Paschall
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Eric Paschall shouldered the scoring load again in Wednesday’s 94-142 blowout loss to the Mavs, finishing with 22 points (8-of-19 shooting), seven rebounds, a steal and a triple in 40 minutes.

    The Warriors seem content with just riding Paschall on offense with nobody else on the roster nearly consistent enough to match his production. Continue to roll him out there for the points and rebounds, but don’t expect too much else.

  • Jarrett Culver
    G-F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jarret Culver struggled to get things going in 24 minutes on Wednesday, shooting 4-of-14 from the field and ending with 10 points, four boards, a steal and two 3-pointers.

    Culver is an interesting player when injuries plague Minnesota's backcourt since he has shown he can collect defensive stats. But at the moment, he isn't worth owning outside of deeper leagues and keeper leagues.

  • Rudy Gobert
    C, Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert had a block part on Wednesday night, swatting five and still putting up 12 points and 15 boards.

    Gobert got off to a slow start this season but seems to have found his grove, in part to two five-block efforts recently. In the last two weeks Gobert has been a top-25 player and is starting to play his way back to an early-round asset.
