• Fred VanVleet
    G, Toronto Raptors

    Raptors GM Bobby Webster expressed that restricted free agent Fred VanVleet remains the highest priority for the team during the offseason.

    "He’s a huge priority," said Webster. "I don’t want to get fined here, we’re a little limited in what we can say, but we love Freddy and he knows that. He is our highest priority." VanVleet played spectacularly off of the bench for the Raptors in his second season averaging 8.6 points, 3.2 assists and 2.4 rebounds while playing 20 minutes per game. VanVleet is headed into this third season and should continue being the Raptors' most effective bench player in limited minutes, but as long as he is backing up Kyle Lowry he should only be looked at in deeper leagues.

Fantasy News

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Carmelo Anthony put up a season-high 32 points on 11-of-16 shooting in a 107-104 win over the Pistons on Sunday.

    Anthony brought his efficiency back up after his recent struggles from the field, which helped the Blazers pull out a close victory. Trevor Ariza, who had been trending up as of late, put up just two points on 1-of-4 shooting in 36 minutes. Ariza should bring top-100 value, while Anthony remains a late-round option for standard leagues.

  • Terrance Ferguson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Terrance Ferguson exited the game early with back stiffness as the Thunder beat the Spurs on Sunday.

    Ferguson had zero points, one rebound, one assist and one block on 0-of-2 shooting in 10 minutes. We should receive an update on the extent of his injury in the coming days.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Golden State Warriors

    Andrew Wiggins had an awful shooting performance as he went 3-of-16 from the field for eight points against the Pelicans on Sunday, but salvaged this line to a degree with 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal.

    Wiggins has been surprisingly versatile with the Warriors thus far, and before tonight he had been shooting well as the number one offensive option. If Wiggins can continue to be a decent contributor in the steals and blocks department he will be a useful fantasy option in standard leagues. Once Stephen Curry takes the court Wiggins' offensive contributions are going to take a hit, and he will need to diversify his fantasy profile.

  • Jordan Poole
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Jordan Poole kept up his momentum while facing the Pelicans on Sunday, tallying 19 points, five assists, four rebounds and one 3-pointer.

    Poole is worth a move in deeper formats as he has emerged with a reliable role for the Warriors lately. We've seen the Warriors play roulette with there roster all season though, Poole's turn in the spotlight is likely to end sooner than later. If you are looking for a hot flyer he is worth a pickup until Stephen Curry returns.

  • Juan Toscano-Anderson
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Juan Toscano-Anderson had a night to remember against the Pelicans on Sunday, dropping 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers, two blocks and one steal.

    The absence of Marquese Chriss (left calf) gave Toscano-Anderson the runway he needed to go off. It's hard to imagine JTA becoming a regular piece for the Warriors, who were also without Draymond Green, and Stephen Curry is supposed to return before the season is all said and done as well. Keep him in mind while Chriss is out, but Toscano-Anderson is not a pickup yet.

  • Damion Lee
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Damion Lee's shooting came around on Sunday while facing the Pelicans, going 9-of-15 from the field for 22 points, four 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal.

    Lee was strong over the course of his 35 minutes. He is an inconsistent performer so don't assume he is going to ride this to the finish line in your league, but enjoy the stats while he is delivering them. Ky Bowman was not too shabby either, going for 15 points, seven assists, six rebounds, three steals and one block over the course of 32 minutes. Bowman's role has been streaky, and he's more of a deep league streamer that could be the hot hand on any given night for the Warriors.

  • Nicolo Melli
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nicolo Melli scored 20 points and knocked down a career-high six triples in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Melli tied his career-high in scoring and shot 7-of-8 from the field. He added five rebounds, one assist and one block to the box score. He can be used as a deep-league shooting specialist if you are short on triples.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday put up 23 points with 15 dimes in a team-high 38 minutes of action in a 115-101 win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Holiday shot 10-of-17 from the field and added seven rebounds and three triples to the box score. He is locked in as a top-30 option for the rest of the season.

  • Zion Williamson
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Zion Williamson went off against the Warriors on Sunday with 28 points and seven rebounds in 33 minutes of action.

    Williamson shot 13-of-20 from the field and added two assists and one block to the stat sheet. The only negative aspect of his performance was his free-throw shooting as he went just 1-of-6 from the stripe. Williamson is a middle-round option with early-round upside for anyone that is punting free throws.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine was awesome against the Wizards on Sunday, accounting for 32 points (11-of-20 FG), six 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block.

    LaVine did have nine turnovers which is a pain for 9-CAT leagues, but we can't complain when he performs like this. While the team has not been winning games, LaVine has proven he is an early-round player in fantasy circles this season. He's a do it all guard that can thrive in any format.
