Fantasy News

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown posted 14 points (6-for-7 shooting), seven asssits, four rebounds, three steals, two triples and a block in Friday's win over the Hawks.

    There is pretty much nothing to criticize from this performance from Brown. He tied for the team lead in minutes with 33 as this was one of his better fantasy games in a while. He remains an option in deeper leagues as a steals streamer.

  • Thomas Bryant
    C, Washington Wizards

    Thomas Bryant woke up from a slow start on Friday to finish strong for 21 points (9-of-12 shooting), 11 rebounds and one block.

    Bryant has been a steady top-50 play this season and is showing no signs of a reversal nor a regression. He's rewarding owners who trusted him on draft day with early-season dividends.

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal powered the Wizards to a 125-118 win over the Hornets on Friday, exploding for 30 points on 10-of-19 shooting with five rebounds, 12 dimes and four 3s.

    This is the fifth straight game where Beal has scored 30 points or more, further propelling him up the fantasy rankings. He's a legit top-10 threat and is thriving in a weapon-starved Wizards team.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Luke Kennard added nine points, nine assists, four rebounds, two steals, one three and a block in Friday's win over the Hawks.

    Kennard didn't have his shot going (4-for-11) so it was good to see him contribute in other ways. Langston Galloway chipped in 12 points on four triples in 27 minutes.

  • Davis Bertans
    F, Washington Wizards

    Davis Bertans was on full-auto mode on Friday, knocking down 6-of-11 shots from deep en route to his 20 points (7-of-13 shooting), eight rebounds, four assists and one steal.

    This is a classic Bertans explosion. Efficient 3-point shooting is his upide-wheelhouse, so this is what you can expect when he's finding the bucket. Excellent value so far coming from a mostly late-round flier pick.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Christian Wood played 12 minutes on Friday, posting 11 points, six rebounds, four blocks, one assist, one steal and one three-pointer.

    Wood was extremely productive on a per-minute basis as he lead a trio of strong bench performances for the Pistons. Derrick Rose played 18 minutes and added 11 points, three triples, two assists, one rebound, one steal and a block. Markieff Morris produced 13 points, three rebounds and two triples.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk was a solid contributor off the Hornets' bench on Friday, tallying 19 points (7-of-10 shooting), two rebounds, two assists, three 3s and one steal.

    Monk has been on-and-off this season, but mostly "on" as of late. He's worth streaming if you need help in points and threes but can be held in 14-team leagues or deeper.

  • Jabari Parker
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Jabari Parker provided 14 points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a triple across 21 minutes in Friday's loss to the Pistons.

    Parker shot the ball well from the field (5-for-10), but with the blowout natrue of thsi game it was mostly a rest game for Parker. Continue to keep him in your lineups, especially with John Collins out.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham played well in Friday's loss to the Wizards, recording 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting with six rebounds, seven assists, three treys, two steals and one block.

    Graham is legit. His rise in fantasy is no fluke and has settled into a reliable floor with a still-uncharted ceiling, making him one of the hottest FA adds of the season so far.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young shot an abysmal 3-for-12 on Friday night, but was able to salvage the rest of his line with eight assists, six rebounds, one steal and a three as the Hawks fell 103-128 to the Pistons on Friday.

    It wasn't Young's night – who also had five turnovers in Friday's game. Still, his ability to provide complementary production was huge for keeping his fantasy line productive.
