• Ben Simmons
    SF/PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons scored 16 points on 6-for-12 shooting with eight rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block against the Wizards on Sunday.

    This game is pretty much the baseline for Ben Simmons, who has been able to shake off all questions about his game and propel himself into the top-60 in 9-cat leagues. He’s doing all of this while not even attempting shots beyond the arc and hitting his free throws at a paltry 56.9 percent.
    His field goal percentage is almost as high as his charity stripe mark at 53.3 percent. If you own him in a dynasty league, hats off as his fantasy ceiling is sky high.

  • TJ Warren
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. Warren was productive in 38 minutes on Thursday, scoring 15 points, grabbing five boards and picking up two steals.

    Warren is the Pacers' leading scorer and has primarily been an efficient point-producer on his way to top-60 value. For the time being, we expect that to continue for Warren. He seems quite underrated in general, much like his teammate Justin Holiday, who is providing top-120 value as a good 3-and-D option. Holiday had 11 points, three triples and a steal in this contest.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (sore back) put up 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting to go along with seven boards in 26 minutes on Thursday night.

    We may not see peak Oladipo at any point this season but we're happy to see him out there and contributing at any level. For the time being, he needs to be held in hopes of a brighter tomorrow. Hopefully the shot starts to fall and he can make the most of limited minutes

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon struggled from the floor on Thursday, shooting 7-of-20 en route to 17 points, six rebounds, eight assists and two cash counters in a team-high 38 minutes.

    The percentage dip has really pushed Brogdon down the board this season and he's currently sitting right on the edge of top-100 value after a disappointing and injury-riddled past two months. He should be decently productive the rest of the way and should improve as Victor Oladipo gets back to full strength and takes away more defensive attention.

  • Danilo Gallinari
    SF, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Danilo Gallinari had a game-high 24 points with six boards, one steal and four triples in Thursday's 112-108 win over the Kings.

    Gallinari has put together another strong fantasy season by his standards, mainly due to the fact that he's stayed healthy. He came into tonight in a bit of a funk, but his past two games have been much more in line with his normal play. The Rooster has been huge for the Thunder lately, especially in crunch time, so enjoy the ride.

  • Nerlens Noel
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Nerlens Noel came off the bench on Thursday and scored 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting to go with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

    Noel logged 20 minutes and was part of a bench mob that ran up the score against the Kings in order to claw back from a double-digit deficit. He's a solid defensive stats streamer and a must-add if Steven Adams ever goes down.

  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 20 points on 8-of-15 shooting while adding three boards, three dimes, a block and a 3-pointer on Thursday.

    Gilgeous-Alexander kept the Thunder in this one with his scoring ability after a slight rough stretch in the first few months, he's absolutely killed it. He's in the top-50 in 9-cat leagues on the season and over the past two months he's been a top-30 player with averages of 18.9 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.1 3s on .475 shooting. These are all sustainable and a top-30 finish is likely given how the Thunder have gotten better as the season progresses.

  • Chris Paul
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Chris Paul showed out again on Thursday, scoring 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with four rebounds, a game-high seven dimes, two steals and a 3-pointer.

    Paul had the rare off night against the Kings during the first three quarters, but he had help from his teammates to keep the game close. When it came down to the wire in the clutch, Paul delivered. Time and time again he's killed it in the fourth quarter and this isn't anything new, but it's just news because he's doing it at 35 years of age on an OKC team that many thought he wouldn't want to play for. This is the best fantasy season for the Point God since his Clippers days when you factor in health and production and his 2020-2021 season draft stock is surely rising.

  • Myles Turner
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner hit the dagger triple in Thursday's win over the Blazers, finishing with 14 points, 10 boards and two blocked shots in 32 minutes.

    Turner had a decent double-double in this game and we're happy to see the scoring and rebounding up. At this point, this might be the line we hope for from Turner down the stretch to give us top-40ish value.

  • Steven Adams
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams dropped 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting while grabbing seven boards with an assist on Thursday.

    Adams was his usual self in this one, not the monster shot blocker we've seen over the past few weeks. It's still too hard to see whether or not his defensive spree was a fluke or a trend, but so far he's been providing more value than expected.

  • Dennis Schroder
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Dennis Schroder came off the bench on Thursday and scored 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting to go with five rebounds, a game-high seven assists and a 3-pointer.

    Schroder didn't shoot well, but he was facilitating the ball and getting open looks for his teammate throughout the game. OKC's triple guard lineup has been the best in the NBA in terms of net rating and it's largely in part due to Schroder's excellence on both ends of the floor.
