March 13, 2019, 1:21 amDamian LillardG, Portland Trail Blazers
Damian Lillard put up 20 points, 12 assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Clippers.
Dame didn't need to take the reins tonight and did a nice job playing facilitator while scoring efficiently, as his 8-of-14 shooting line can attest. Jusuf Nurkic also went for 20 & 12, though he did it with points and rebounds while going 6-of-14 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line as his career year at the charity stripe continues.
December 8, 2019, 12:55 amJeff GreenSF, Utah Jazz
Jeff Green drained five 3-pointers on his way to scoring 19 points, shooting 7-of-9 from the floor and 5-of-6 from behind the line in 26 minutes.
Green joined the party tonight as the Jazz blew out the Grizzlies 126-112. Green can be a boom-or-bust streamer for points and threes but is too inconsistent to rely on. He should be left on the waiver wire.
December 8, 2019, 12:50 amTyus JonesPG, Memphis Grizzlies
Tyus Jones scored nine points with seven assists and three steals in 28 minutes on Saturday.
Jones is worth rostering in standard leagues while Ja Morant (back) is week-to-week for his contributions in assists and steals.
December 8, 2019, 12:47 amJaren Jackson Jr.PF, Memphis Grizzlies
Jaren Jackson Jr. scored a team-high 26 points on Saturday to go with four rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.
JJJ has shown the ability to put up these scoring outbursts but isn't doing it consistently. Jackson Jr. is hovering around top-100 value but will need to stay out of foul trouble and be more consistent to reach his ADP. He is a buy-low target that could blow up late in the season.
December 8, 2019, 12:37 amDillon BrooksSF, Memphis Grizzlies
Dillon Brooks (shoulder) started on Saturday and scored 10 points with two steals in 23 minutes.
Brooks was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury but was able to play through it. Brooks is a late-round value in standard leagues and will have a boost in in the short term with Ja Morant (back) week-to-week.
December 8, 2019, 12:31 amGrayson AllenSG, Memphis Grizzlies
Grayson Allen scored 13 points on Saturday, shooting 6-of-9 from the field and 1-of-3 from deep in 25 minutes.
Allen has played at least 25 minutes in four straight games, but he hasn't done much with the opportunity. Allen can be a streaming option for points and threes in deep leagues while Ja Morant is week-to-week.
December 8, 2019, 12:25 amDe'Anthony MeltonPG, Memphis Grizzlies
De'Anthony Melton scored six points on Saturday with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 20 minutes.
Melton has been a standard-league player since Ja Morant has been injured. Melton is a pickup in standard-leagues while Morant is week-to-week, and should be available in a lot of leagues with only 11 percent ownership on Yahoo.
December 7, 2019, 11:34 pmJames HardenPG, Houston Rockets
James Harden took over in the fourth after having a slow start to Saturday's 115-109 win and finished with 34 points, along with six rebounds, four assists, three steals, one block, three treys and no turnovers.
Harden was struggling with his shot for most of the game but then scored 17 straight Rockets points to bring home the win. He only shot 8-of-27 from the field, including 3-of-17 from three and added 15-of-18 from the line. Also of note was that he had zero turnovers which is a season-best, as he averages 5.1 turnovers per game. The Beard is a fantasy beast.
December 7, 2019, 11:25 pmT.J. McConnellPG, Indiana Pacers
T.J. McConnell dropped 11 dimes on Saturday to go with six points on 3-of-3 shooting in 20 minutes.
McConnell saw extra minutes with Malcolm Brogdon (sore right hand) sitting out on Saturday. McConnell can be left on the waiver wire and is only a streamer for assists when the Pacers are injured at point guard.
December 7, 2019, 11:22 pmMarcus MorrisPF, New York Knicks
Marcus Morris dropped 25 points on Saturday, shooting 9-of-17 from the field and 4-of-8 from deep.
Morris added little outside the points and threes, but he is still inside the top-75 on the back of his 18.6 points and 2.9 threes per game. Morris should be considered a sell-high candidate, especially since his role moving forward is uncertain as a veteran player on the struggling Knicks.
December 7, 2019, 11:22 pmRussell WestbrookPG, Houston Rockets
Russell Westbrook dominated with a triple double, as he scored 24 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, dished out 11 assists and added three steals, two blocks and one trey in Saturday's win against the Suns.
Westbrook was efficient from the field as he found opening for drives to the hole. He went 10-of-18 from the field, including 1-of-3 from 3-point land. Hopefully, this will springboard him to more efficient shooting games for the rest of the season
