• Aron Baynes got the start Monday night finishing with 20 points, eight rebounds, one assist and one turnover in a huge win over the Thunder.

    Baynes was the biggest beneficiary in the absence of Andre Drummond (ankle), as he was able to help the Pistons lock down the Thunder on the offensive end. If Drummond were to ever miss time, Baynes would be able to fill in seamlessly, however, he’s not relevant in fantasy leagues as long as he’s the team’s back-up center.

  • Jonas Valanciunas
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jonas Valanciunas posted a big double-double on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets with 23 points (11-of-19 shooting), 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.

    Valanciunas has crept into the top-40 for the past month but he still has spots where he can easily improve. He's seen a dip in free throw percentage recently that should get corrected. He was only outscored by one Grizzly, Dillon Brooks, who had 24 points, one rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one triple in 33 minutes in this game.

  • Jaren Jackson Jr.
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jaren Jackson Jr. threw a block party on Tuesday with seven rejections in a win over the Nuggets, adding 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting, two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Jackson's blocks have been trending up for quite a while now, putting him near the top-30 for the last month. He still has plenty of room for improvement, but for the month, the blocks are elite (2.4 per game), and the threes are great too (2.9 per game).

  • Davis Bertans
    F, Washington Wizards

    Davis Bertans had a good showing for himself on Tuesday, notching 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting, including 4-for-4 from deep, chipping in three rebounds, one steal and two blocks.

    Bertans found his shooting rhythm once again tonight and should be good for a massive end-of-season run. As long as he's healthy, he will be one of the league's best sources of 3-pointers and a sprinkling of peripherals.

  • Monte Morris
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Monte Morris came off the bench for the third straight game but still put up good numbers in 34 minutes including nine points (3-of-8 shooting), five rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

    Morris is still worth starting in standard leagues while Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain) is out, even if he's coming off the bench. He specializes in assist-to-turnover ratio and has had connected at a high field goal percentage for a guard for most of his career.

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal did his best to carry the Wizards on Tuesday on the shoulders of his 47-point effort on 13-of-31 shooting, addign six assists, four 3s, one steal and one block.

    Beal got outdueled by Khris Middleton, who popped out a career-best 51 points. Still, Beal appears to be churning out big games night in and night out. As long as he's not shut down by his team, Beal is a lock for top-10 value at this rate.

  • Thomas Bryant
    C, Washington Wizards

    Thomas Bryant's minute limit was lifted on Tuesday and the big man responded by dropping 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

    Bryant was officially back in form tonight and he did so with a vengeance. Remember, Bryant was able to flirt with top-30 value before being sidelined and is now rewarding everyone who gave him the patience he deserved. Expect better and bigger things ROS.

  • Jerami Grant
    SF, Denver Nuggets

    Jerami Grant filled the box score on Tuesday with 21 points (7-of-17 FGs), four rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and six 3-pointers in 38 minutes in a loss to the Grizzlies.

    Grant has been a top-60/45 (8-cat/9-cat) player over the last two weeks with Paul Millsap out. Millsap doesn't have a clear return date, so start Grant with confidence for the near future.

  • Eric Bledsoe
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe stepped up in the absence of Giannis Antetokoumpo on Tuesday, tallying a season-high 34 points on 11-of-20 shooting from the field and 10-of-10 at the line.

    They say necessity is the mother of invention and the Bucks needed Bledsoe to step up tonight and he re-invented himself to fill that need. He added six rebounds, 10 dimes, two 3s and one steal to the box tonight and hopefully this big game serves as a catalyst for him to wake up from the stupor of his mostly mediocre 2019-20.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo logged 22 minutes off the bench on Tuesday and put up a solid performance with 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting, adding seven rebounds, three triples and two assists.

    DDV is more known for his steals contributions, which were sadly absent tonight. Still, it's a good view of his other areas of contribution. He's on-and-off been able to flirt with standard-league value this season.

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic was great on Tuesday with 25 points (8-of-16 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), 13 rebounds, five assists, one block and three triples in 39 minutes as the Nuggets lost 96-104 to the Grizzlies in Memphis.

    Jokic has lifted his season stats so that they're about equal to last year's numbers. And if he keeps up the pace he's been on recently, he just might get up to the spot in which he was drafted (ADP: 6th).
