Fantasy News

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns had an amazing line in Saturday's 112-99 win against the Grizzlies with 33 points, 23 rebounds, three assists, a steal, one block and four 3-pointers.

    He also went 12-of-20 from the field and Towns has been proving all year long that he's one of the best fantasy players out there despite the slow start to the season because of the Jimmy Butler drama. Towns is on pace for another top-5 finish with averages of 24.7 points on 52.3 percent shooting, 12.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 blocks, 0.9 steals a game.

  • Kris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn (sore back) played on Saturday against the Jazz but probably could've taken the night off as he finished with four points, three rebounds, five assists, a steal and a 1-for-8 shooting line in 21 minutes of action as the team lost 83-114.

    Lauri Markkanen had 18 points and 10 rebounds on 6-of-20 from the field for Chicago's "good" box score performance. There's absolutely nothing to learn about the Bulls' known quantities from this one, except for the fact that Dunn is healthy enough to play.

  • Shaq Harrison - G/F - Chicago Bulls

    Shaq Harrison started again on Saturday night and put up six points (2-of-9 shooting), nine rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in a team-high 39 minutes against the Jazz.

    Harrison came through for fantasy owners, even if the efficiency stings a bit. He's looking like a solid add for rebounds and steals out of a guard spot with Otto Porter (shoulder) looking like a shutdown candidate, and tonight was proof that Harrison's minutes are blowout-proof. It's not all that exciting but if you need steals, Harrison's certainly an option.

  • Andrew Wiggins - G/F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins showed up on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies with 22 points, four rebounds, one assist, a block and a three in 35 minutes.

    Wiggins went 9-of-15 from the floor and has been a good streaming option if you're in need for points and triples. Despite his physical tools and playing time, he has never been consistent in putting up good lines and just continues to tease fantasy owners from time to time on what he can become.

  • 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.
