• Enes Kanter received 27 minutes of playing time on Wednesday and produced 20 points (7-of-11 from the field, 6-for-6 from the charity stripe), nine rebounds and a block.

    Kanter rebounded nicely from a nine-minute outing on Monday, and his fantasy value will really be determined by how much run he gets. He’s good for scoring, boards and strong field goal percentages with the occasional block but would plummet into late-round territory if he was stuck with minutes in the high teens. The Knicks are fully expected to move one of their reserve centers, which could help Kanter out in the second half. He’s not the safest play in the world but there isn’t too much concern yet.

  • Pascal Siakam
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam was up to his old tricks in Monday's shellacking of the Hornets, putting up 20 points (7-of-14 shooting) to go with eight rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block three triples and no turnovers in 35 minutes.

    There is just nothing else to add about Siakam's continued dominance other than it is real and appears to be here to stay. The Hornets had no answers for him tonight, and he looks well positioned to jockey for first-round value all season long.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell looked great passing the ball in Monday's 132-96 win over the Hornets, collecting a career-high six assists to go with 17 points (7-of-15 shooting), two rebounds, two steals and two triples in 25 minutes.

    Powell has strung together two solid outings in a row, and has even tried his hand at some ball-handling with the dearth of point guard options behind Fred VanVleet. He's still got some limited value ahead of him with Kyle Lowry's return expected within the next week or two, but until then continue to roll him out there.

  • Jake Layman
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jake Layman (left foot soreness) will not return to Monday's game.

    Layman headed to the locker room and will finish the night with six points, a rebound and a block in 14 minutes.

  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson played well in short minutes on Monday, scoring 15 points (6-of-10 shooting) to go with eight rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes.

    The line looks nice and may even fool a few people into thinking he may maintain a decent role even with OG Anunoby back. He of course was aided by this being a blowout against an inferior opponent, and even then the minutes aren't there for him to be relied upon on a night to night basis. Leave him on the wire.

  • RJ Barrett
    SF, New York Knicks

    RJ Barrett showed some positive signs in Monday's win over the Cavs as he collected two steals and two blocks while hitting 4-of-5 free throws in just 24 minutes.

    Barrett is one of the players most harmful to your free throw percentage, so any improvement there is a great sign. Barrett's first two-block game of his career follows six games with zero blocks, so it's not a trend quite yet. But speaking of blocks, Mitchell Robinson had four in just 17 minutes tonight.

  • OG Anunoby
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby looked to be back to form in Monday's blowout of the Hornets, finishing his night with a career-high 24 points (10-of-13 shooting), five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

    Anunoby left for a period of time in this game after getting hit in the eye, but it didn't stop him from putting up a career perfromance. His role is cemented and he looks destined to finish the year at a mid-round pace. Continue to put him into lineups as usual.

  • Marvin Williams
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Marvin Williams played well off the bench against the Raptros on Monday, finishing his night with 14 points (4-of-5 shooting), four rebounds, three triples, two blocks and an assist in 24 minutes.

    Marvin has seen minutes in the mid to high 20's over his last three outings, and has shown that he has something left in the tank when given enough run. He saw extended run to night motsly because P.J Washington was in foul trouble, and now that Nicolas Batum is back in the fold it'll be tough for him to see enough minutes to matter in most settings. Just keep him in mind if minutes at the forward spots ever open up in Charlotte.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Julius Randle finally got it going on Monday night in a 123-105 blowout win over the Cavs with a season-high 30 points (12-for-17 FGs, 3-for-5 FTs) and seven boards, four dimes, two steals, one block, three triples and just one turnover in 32 minutes.

    Randle had been one of the worst regular players in fantasy until this game. His turnovers are up, his free throw percentage is down and his field goal percentage is still down significantly even after today's jump. He should continue to improve, but last season's middle-round finish doesn't look like it'll be replicated this season.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham was serviceable in Monday's 96-132 loss to the Raptors, finishing with 11 points, six assists, two rebounds, a steal, three triples and four turnovers.

    Graham has been the lone reliable fantasy contributor for the Hornets this year and even he had a rough outing in this blowout. He's definitely the guy worth owning of this bunch and should bounce back in his next one.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier didn't do much in Monday's blowout loss to the Raptors, finishing with 10 points (4-of-11 shooting) to go with three assists, three rebounds, two turnovers and two triples in 26 minutes.

    The only thing that's scary about Terry this year are his shooting percentages. He has been a far cry from the top-70 value that he was drafted at. With so many performances like these where he gives you little to work with, it'll be tough to see him get anywhere close to his ADP this season.
