• Derrick Rose
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose put up 18 points on 8-of-17 shooting in a loss to the Wizards on Sunday.

    He added two rebounds and three assists to the stat sheet. Jeff Teague chipped in 10 points and eight assists on 4-of-9 shooting. Neither Teague nor Rose has been a top-150 option in 9-cat leagues over the past month, but it will be interesting to see how the rest of the season shakes out. Rose is more of a scoring specialist, while Teague is an assist specialist.

Fantasy News

  • James Harden
    PG, 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.

  • T.J. McConnell
    PG, 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.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, 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.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, 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

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham has not been listed on the injury report after briefly leaving with an apparent shoulder injury last game and will start on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

    Graham looks to be healthy and has potential to put up big numbers in a favourable matchup against the defensively challenged Hawks. He is a projected to easily put up top-75 value for the rest of the season.

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Mitchell Robinson rejected three shots on Saturday to go with 14 points (6-of-9 from the field), seven rebounds and two steals in 25 minutes.

    Robinson shot 2-of-2 from the line and the key stat is that he only tallied one personal foul. Robinson is averaging 11.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 2.3 blocks over his last three games and could blow up in a hurry. His buy-low window could slam shut soon.

  • Ben McLemore
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Ben McLemore came off the bench to score 27 points and added two rebounds, one steal and five treys on Saturday vs. the Suns.

    McLemore's hot shooting continues, even after returning to the bench. In 30 minutes, he went 10-of-15 from the field, including 5-of-9 from three and was a perfect 2-of-2 from the line. He is fitting in well nicely with James Harden and has a quick trigger finger. This hot shooting isn't sustainable so he a sell-high player.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Julius Randle double-doubled on Saturday with 16 points (6-of-18 from the field) and 12 rebounds in 35 minutes.

    Randle failed to hit a three and shot 4-of-6 from the line which displays why he has failed to produce standard-league value this season. The points and rebounds are good for Randle, but the .436 field goal percentage and .662 free throw percentage along with minuscule defensive stats and high turnovers outweigh the positives.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton came off the bench on Saturday and dished out seven assists to go with nine points and three steals in 17 minutes.

    The point guard rotation is a mess in New York. Frank Ntilikina (two points and four assists in 19 minutes) and Dennis Smith Jr. (one point in 12 minutes) are both fighting with Payton for minutes and the situation is hurting all three players' value right now. Monitor this situation in case someone pulls ahead.

  • Devin Booker
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Devin Booker splashed 35 points along with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and two treys in Saturday's 109-115 loss to the Rockets.

    The only downside to Booker's line was his uncharacteristic 11-of-16 shooting from the line. Before tonight's game, he was shooting 94.6 percent from the line for the season. Otherwise he was excellent shooting from the field, as he went 11-of-19, including 2-of-4 from three. He is one of the best young players in the game and will continue to put up plenty of popcorn stats.
