• Clint Capela scored 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting with eight boards and a steal on Monday.

    Capela is the league-leader in field goal percentage at 66.6 percent so tonight’s strong shooting performance was actually lower than his usual mark. Maybe Kevin Durant was right about Capela’s job being easy with James Harden and Chris Paul tossing him lobs all game, but fantasy owners can’t complain as they’re enjoying a huge boost to their percentages. Add on the 10.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks and you have the No. 31 player in 9-cat leagues.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard had trouble finding his rhythm in Wedensday night's 114-106 loss to the Raptors, ending with nine points (2-for-12 shooting), 10 assists, two blocks and two from deep.

    Lillard had a rough time finding the bottom of the net in this one, but still managed to get 10 dimes and two blocks. Lillard is a top-5 player right now and there is no reason to worry after tonight's performance.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum finished the night with 19 points, six rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and hitting three shots from deep on Wednesday.

    McCollum has been shaky this season and it was nice to see an uptick in 3-pointers and rebounds in this one. He will likely pick it up as the season continues, and if you're looking for a buy-low candidate, this might be a good target for you.

  • Rodney Hood
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Rodney Hood (back spams) returned to action on Wednesday night and dropped 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting, two boards, an assist and five 3-pointers.

    Hood looks like someone that should be owned in standard leagues as he is providing nice numbers from deep and shooting 50 percent from the field this season. He's currently inside the top-120.

  • Anfernee Simons
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Anfernee Simons came off the bench on Wednesday and finished with 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting and three 3-pointers.

    Simons can hold some value in deep leagues due to his ability to score and knock down shots from deep. The upside is there, but at this point, he doesn't hold much value in standard leagues.

  • Nassir Little
    SF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Nassir Little got his first career start on Wednesday and ended with seven points (3-for-10), five boards, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

    It's worth keeping an eye on Little if he continues to start and picks up his production. But for the moment, he hasn't done enough to warrant picking up outside of deep leagues.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred Vanvleet had a monstrous line, ending with 30 points on 10-for-16 shooting, four rebounds, seven dimes, two steals, a block and sinking four from deep on Wednesday night.

    VanVleet has been blowing his ADP out of the water this season. He is right on the cusp of top-25 production, and while he might not end the season there, he has the potential to put up big numbers with Kyle Lowry (fractured thumb) watching from the sidelines.

  • Pascal Siakam
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam led the Raptors in scoring with 36 points (15-for-28 shooting), along with six rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers on Wednesday night.

    Pascal Siakam continues to have huge games and proves that he was worth an early-round pick. He contributes across the board, and the injuries to the Raptors will only provide higher upside for Siakam.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell couldn't find his shot, ending the night with two points on 0-for-6 shooting, seven rebounds and two blocks against Portland on Wednesday.

    Powell got the start with Kyle Lowry out, but tonight just wasn't his night. That being said, he has provided decent out of position blocks recently, and should still be a valuable asset with Lowry out.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol racked up four blocks to go along with nine points, five rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers on Wednesday.

    Gasol has strung together a couple meaningful lines now and the four blocks help ease the disappointing start to the season. With Serge Ibaka sidelined by injury, Gasol has the opportunity to start working his way back to the top-100 value many were expecting.

  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had his best game of the season, putting up 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting, 11 boards, one assist, a block and a steal on Wedensday.

    The Raptors have caught the injury bug and Hollis-Jefferson is making the most of his time. He could be a productive streamer if OG Anunoby continues to miss time.
