Fantasy News

  • Donovan Mitchell
    SG, Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell's efforts came up short in Wednesday's 114-103 loss to the Celtics, despite finishing with 37 points (15-32 FG, 2-10 3PT), five rebounds and five assists.

    Mitchell had a herculean effort, but it fell short as the Jazz are struggling to find the right lineup to play around him. It is rare to see him shoot so poorly from deep, but he was able to get his points in other ways tonight. He seems to have settled in around fourth-round value for the season, with some flashes of upside as witnessed tonight.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Mike Conley ended up getting the starting nod on Wednesday, putting together a line of 15 points (5-13 FG, 5-9 3PT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal.

    Conley did all of his damage from deep in this contest, while only attempting four shot inside the arc. It's unsure what Conley's role will be moving forward, but he has been outside of the top-200 for a couple of months now and it doesn't look like that will change.

  • Royce O'Neale
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Royce O'Neale made the most of his starting opportunity, picking up 14 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3PT), four rebounds, one assist and three steals on Wednesday night.

    O'Neale did not disappoint on the defensive end and could be an interesting pickup for team that need some steals. He's been a top-75 player over the last week of games and has upside if given the minutes.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Bojan Bogdanocic struggled to get anything going again on Wednesday night, finishing with just three points on 1-of-8 shooting.

    Another night without triple and questions have to start swirling around him. While everyone has slumps, this one is particularly bad.
    As the Jazz are trying to figure out their lineup Bogdanovic doesn't want to give any reason to question his starting role. As an example, Joe Ingles was moved to the bench for tonight's contest but did nothing to earn his way back into the starting lineup, ending with two points in 26 minutes of play.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis had 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting while grabbing seven rebounds, an assist and one steal on Wednesday.

    Theis appears to have secured his role as the starting center for the Celtics. This could lead to a top-80 finish for his 2019-2020 campaign, a very welcome surprise for any owners that stuck with him.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum was on a mission in Wednesday's contest against the Jazz, picking up a 33 point, 11 rebound double-double on 13-of-20 shooting.

    Tatum also chipped in three assists while getting others involved. He is now played his way into being a first-round value on the year. It's not likely he'll end the year there, but it's a safe bet he'll beat out his ADP.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown put together a strong night on Wednesday, finishing the contest with 20 points (8-16 FG, 3-6 3PT), six rebounds, two assists and one block.

    Brown should be able to see his scoring increase with any extended absence of Kemba Walker. Brown is currently a top-65 player with some upside given any additional minutes due to injuries on the team.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart came up one assist shy of a double-double on Wednesday, ending with 17 points (7-17 FG, 3-8 3PT), three rebounds, nine assists, three steals and block.

    Smart contributed to all the counting stats in this contest, and is a threat to do so on any night. He looks like a lock to finish the season with mid-round value, and will look for more explosive nights should Kemba Walker miss more time.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio dropped his third straight double-double on Wednesday, tallying 18 points on 5-of-11 shooting, adding 10 assists, six boards, two 3s, three steals and seven turnovers.

    Rubio's 2019-20 bounce-back campaign is peaking right now and his stellar production doesn't look like it's going to end anytime soon. Rubio and the Suns system is a match made in fantasy heaven, making his owners truly blessed.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    James Harden lit up the Grizzlies on Wednesday, scoring 30 points on 9-of-16 shooting to go with seven rebounds, three assists, five turnovers and seven triples.

    Harden was true to form, posting a line worthy of a player holding the top spot in fantasy rankings. Harden fell behind Anthony Davis in the rankings for a short stretch, but he should win the race for the top spot and fantasy owners can sit back and enjoy the dominance.
