March 5, 2019, 11:19 pmCJ Miles - F/G - Memphis Grizzlies
C.J. Miles put up 12 points, two rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's win.
Miles has been a consistent rotation player for Memphis and is around the top-220 over the last couple of weeks. His 3-point shooting gives him specialist appeal in deeper formats and if he keeps it up with lines like these he'll inch into the top-200 before too long.
March 18, 2019, 11:47 pmLuka Doncic - G/F - Dallas Mavericks
Luka Doncic (knee) triple-doubled with 29 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in Monday's 129-125 OT loss to the Pelicans.
Doncic appears to be healthy enough to continue to rely on for a boatload of stats, as he added two steals and a three. He shot just 10-for-26, including 1-for-7 from deep, in his 39 minutes tonight. However, he was 8-for-11 from the free-throw line, giving his fantasy owners hope that he can turn around his poor performance on his freebies.
March 18, 2019, 11:36 pmJalen Brunson - G - Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Bruson had another solid game with 14 points, three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one three in 39 minutes in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.
It's not as exciting as Brunson's last few games. However, this should be his around his floor for the rest of the season. That's a must-start floor for anyone in need of a safe point guard with a nice ceiling, too. Dwight Powell also continued his great play tonight with 16 points and eight boards on 6-of-8 from the field.
March 18, 2019, 11:30 pmAnthony Davis - F/C - New Orleans Pelicans
Anthony Davis returned to action after a rest day in Monday's 129-125 OT win over the Mavs, logged his usual load of 21 minutes and dropped 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting.
AD has proven that he only needs 20 minutes on the floor to post mid-round value. He added six boards, five dimes, one trey, one steal and one block to round out his line for the night. The Pelicans are going through the motions at this point and their chosen workload management plan for AD has handicapped his owners big time.
March 18, 2019, 11:29 pmTim Hardaway Jr. - G - Dallas Mavericks
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 21 points with three triples, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes in Monday's overtime loss to the Pelicans.
Hardaway looked like he'd fallen out of favor when he was benched recently, but he's now back to his early-season ways with over 20 points and at least three 3-pointers in each of his last two games. If he was dropped and you need points and threes, go grab him now.
March 18, 2019, 11:24 pmElfrid Payton - G - New Orleans Pelicans
Elfrid Payton recorded his fifth straight triple-double in Monday's overtime win vs. the Mavs, tallying 19 points on 5-of-12 shooting with 10 rebounds, 11 dimes, two 3s and one steal.
Payton's excellent rebounding has been a pleasant surprise this late in the season. He's been thriving since Jrue Holiday was sidelined by a lower abdominal strain. Payton is a strong play moving forward, with Holiday being a shutdown risk. Frank Jackson was also productive with 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting, two rebounds, four assists and two triples to his name.
March 18, 2019, 11:23 pmRodney Hood - G - Trail Blazers
Rodney Hood returned after brief trip to locker room early in Monday's game.
Hood was right back in the game, so there seems to be no cause for concern.

March 18, 2019, 11:19 pmDirk Nowitzki - F - Dallas Mavericks
Dirk Nowitzki scored eight important points, as he passed Wilt Chamberlain for sixth on the NBA's all-time scoring list.
Dirk is generally getting minutes in the teens (12 tonight), and isn't giving fantasy players anything but possibly streaming-level threes at this point.
March 18, 2019, 11:19 pmJulius Randle - F - New Orleans Pelicans
Julius Randle thrived against the Mavs on Monday, flirting with a double-double with 30 points on 14-of-24 shooting, adding nine rebounds, four dimes, two 3s, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.
Randle has been a steady source of production as the Pelicans go through the motions of finishing off the 2018-19 season. He should hold steady as a mid-round play. Deploy him with confidence.
March 18, 2019, 11:05 pmMaxi Kleber - F - Dallas Mavericks
Maxi Kleber fell on and sprained his left wrist and will not return to Monday night's game.
Kleber ends his night with nine points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 25 minutes. He's been getting near-starter's minutes and had double-doubled in three of the previous four games, sprinkling in threes and blocks. Hopefully he can get back out there by the Mavs' next game on Wednesday.

March 18, 2019, 10:53 pmKyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics
Kyrie Irving dropped 30 points with five rebounds, four assists, two threes, four steals and a block in 36 minutes in Monday's loss to the Nuggets.
Irving was also 8-of-8 from the line. Even when the Celtics are a little flat, Kyrie is a top-10 stud. Expect it to continue as the Celtics jockey for playoff position.
