May 5, 2018, 12:51 amClint CapelaC, Houston Rockets
Clint Capela scored 11 points with eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and four blocks in Friday's Game 3 win over the Jazz.
Capela has outplayed Rudy Gobert in this series and he's showing the versatility on offense that fantasy owners have seen all season. Along with Trevor Ariza (11 points, two threes, one steal, one block) and P.J. Tucker (nine points, five boards, one trey) they have clamped down on the Jazz's struggling offense.
February 23, 2020, 9:50 pmDavis BertansF, Washington Wizards
Davis Bertans was good for 22 points, four rebounds, five 3-pointers, one steal and six turnovers vs. the Bulls on Sunday.
You know what you are signing up for with Bertans. 3-pointers and points will be the nightly outlook and anything else is a bonus. He remains a very reliable mid-round value. Thomas Bryant did not do much in comparison, seeing just 14 minutes, during which he tallied four points, five rebounds and a steal. Bryant's workload will increase with time, just hang in there as he should be good for mid-round value as well when he receives 30 minutes a night.
February 23, 2020, 9:45 pmNerlens NoelC, Oklahoma City Thunder
Nerlens Noel blocked five shots in 16 minutes of action in Sunday's blowout victory over the Spurs.
Noel scored 10 points with one rebound and one steal on 5-of-5 shooting. He remains a middle-round option even when he is seeing less than 20 minutes per game due to his monstrous defensive stats and efficiency.
February 23, 2020, 9:44 pmIsh SmithPG, Washington Wizards
Ish Smith continued to flash his under the radar value vs. the Bulls on Sunday, going for 10 points (3-of-5 FG), five assists, three rebounds, two 3-pointers, two steals, one block and one turnover.
Smith has been getting the lion's share of the point guard minutes, settling in at just under 30 a night since the trade deadline, and that should be enough opportunity for late-round numbers in 12-team formats. If you are in need of low-end guard stats you could do a lot worse.
February 23, 2020, 9:43 pmSteven AdamsC, Oklahoma City Thunder
Steven Adams put up 21 points with 14 boards on 8-of-12 shooting in a 131-103 win over the Spurs on Sunday.
Adams played 27 minutes and added one steal to the stat sheet. Adams could be turning the corner and looks like a potential top-50 option for the remainder of the season.
February 23, 2020, 9:38 pmRui HachimuraPF, Washington Wizards
Rui Hachimura was serviceable against the Bulls on Sunday, dropping 10 points, eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and four turnovers.
Hachimura has a decent opportunity in front of him to close out the season for the Wizards and makes sense as an end of the roster option in standard leagues. His role as the second option is stable, and if Bradley Beal were to miss games he would have even more upside.
February 23, 2020, 9:37 pmRudy GaySF, San Antonio Spurs
Rudy Gay put up 14 points with six boards in 18 minutes in an embarrassing loss to the Thunder on Sunday.
Gay knocked down all five of his attempts from the stripe and added two assists and one steal to the box score. He is more of a deep-league option, so he can be left on the wire for leagues with 16 teams or less.
February 23, 2020, 9:33 pmDejounte MurrayPG, San Antonio Spurs
Dejounte Murray scored zero points on 0-of-7 shooting on Sunday in what seemed to be an off night for the Spurs overall as they got blown out by the Thunder.
Murray played 21 minutes and added three rebounds, seven assists and one steal to the box score. No one on the Spurs scored more than 14 points, so we can chalk this up as a fluke game. Expect Murray to bounce back next game as he remains a middle-round value.
February 23, 2020, 9:33 pmNaz ReidC, Minnesota Timberwolves
Naz Reid produced 13 points (5-of-12 FG), five rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal against the Nuggets on Sunday.
Reid only saw 22 minutes and picked up five fouls in the process. He has now had five fouls in three straight outings, and that issue could cripple his value in the long run if he does not get it under control. It'd be nice to see Reid pick up some blocks, but the upside remains tantalizing for as long as Karl-Anthony Towns is out of the picture. James Johnson also remains a productive option for the Wolves, emerging with 13 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer while coming off the bench. Johnson is a standard league pickup while KAT is absent.
February 23, 2020, 9:30 pmLaMarcus AldridgePF, San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge scored eight points on 3-of-10 shooting in 21 minutes of action in a 131-103 loss to the Thunder on Sunday.
Aldridge missed all five of his attempts from beyond the arc and added just three rebounds and two assists to the stat sheet. DeMar DeRozan did not play well either as he had just 11 points and five boards on 4-of-12 shooting. Aldridge and DeRozan are both locked inside top-50 value, but they were off their game on Sunday night.
February 23, 2020, 9:28 pmMalik BeasleySG, Minnesota Timberwolves
On Sunday, Malik Beasley was solid across the board against the Nuggets, accounting for 17 points (6-of-13 FG), eight rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.
The Wolves were without D'Angelo Russell (rest) on Sunday and it is a little surprising that Beasley only put up 13 shots when his main competition for touches was Kelan Martin. Nonetheless, Beasley looks locked into minutes in the mid-30s the rest of the way, and should be good for 12-team value at minimum, with even more upside as long as Karl-Anthony Towns sits out.
