Greg Monroe resumed his sixth man role in Monday’s preseason loss, shooting 6-of-8 for 12 points in 17 minutes of action.
Monroe added seven boards, two assists, a steal and a block to round out a pretty full line by preseason standards. He’s found a role that suits him well and even if he’d prefer to start we wouldn’t expect a change any time soon. Moose is becoming an underrated fantasy asset thanks to the bench job, leaving plenty of profit on the table for owners who are wise to the fact that Monroe’s usage actually went up once he became a reserve. He’s a strong bet for top-100 numbers.
