December 18, 2018, 11:46 pmJamal MurrayG, Denver Nuggets
Jamal Murray scored 22 points on 10-of-18 shooting (1-of-4 from deep, 1-of-2 from the line) with seven rebounds, 15 assists, one steal and one block in Tuesday's win over the Mavs.
The Nuggets are in the middle of a two-game week and that's good since Murray always needs some rest. He has disappointed owners with just top 70-90 returns (8/9 cat) on the year and it's because he is only hitting 42.2 percent of his shots and 85.9 percent from the line, so the volume increase has actually hurt. He's a great bet for regression on both fronts and this is an easy buy low moment.

Carmelo Anthony double-doubled on Thursday with 16 points and 11 boardsto go with five dimes, one steal, one block and two triples on Thursday.
Anthony recorded his first double-double since his game against Houston on January 15th and added his usual inefficient scoring to his line. He had a couple extra dimes thanks to closing out the game in garbage time minutes so don't expect those to come too often.
January 24, 2020, 12:55 amLuka DoncicPG-SF, Dallas Mavericks
Luka Doncic scored 27 points on 11-of-25 shooting to go with six rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two triples on Thursday.
Doncic was his usual superstar self on Thursday and was named as an All-Star starter tonight, making him the youngest player to earn this honor since LeBron James in 2005. He's in elite company already in reality and fantasy and his historic year should end with him inside the top-12.
January 24, 2020, 12:54 amMaxi KleberPF, Dallas Mavericks
Maxi Kleber scored 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting with four boards, one dime, three blocks and two triples on Thursday.
Kleber came off the bench, but he's stepped into his increased role and easily landed with standard league value for the remainder of the year. He's going to be good for traditional big man stats with a couple cash counters here and there to keep his head above water.
January 24, 2020, 12:54 amKristaps PorzingisPF-C, Dallas Mavericks
Kristaps Porzingis scored 20 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with five rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers on Thursday.
Porzingis' playing time will be on the lower end of 30 minutes at a maximum and his shooting most likely won't get back on track, but his contributions on triples (2.2) and blocks (2.1) are enough to keep him within the top-50 at a minimum.
January 24, 2020, 12:53 amTim Hardaway Jr.SF, Dallas Mavericks
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting to go with one rebound, four assists and three triples on Thursday.
Hardaway Jr. has scored in double figures for the ninth consecutive game and has found some consistency in his play as of late. The Mavs lost Dwight Powell (Achilles) for the season and Kristaps Porzingis will always be on a minutes limit due to his knee which means THJ should have some extra opportunity to deliver on his scoring numbers.
January 24, 2020, 12:53 amSeth CurrySG, Dallas Mavericks
Seth Curry scored 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with one rebound, two assists, a steal and four triples on Thursday.
Curry has had a solid stretch lately and is worth owning for owners in need of triples, but outside of that he holds little value. Jalen Brunson (17 points, three rebounds, one assist and four triples) also had a solid game off the bench with Delon Wright (nine points, eight boards and four dimes) always finding a way to put up a solid line as well. The three-headed monster at guard isn't the most ideal situation in fantasy hoops, but target Brunson for dimes, Curry for treys and Wright for a little bit of everything.
January 24, 2020, 12:04 amJarrett AllenC, Brooklyn Nets
Jarrett Allen didn't take advantage of DeAndre Jordan's absence on Thursday, scoring seven points and grabbing eight boards as the Nets fell 128-113 to the Lakers.
Allen added just one blocked shot in his 30 minutes. He should still be a decent mid-round value going forward, even if DeAndre Jordan is around to gobble up rebounds.
January 24, 2020, 12:03 amCaris LeVertPG-SG, Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert had a nice outing on Thursday night in his 23 minutes, scoring 16 points to accompany four rebounds and a couple 3-pointers.
LeVert was decent but hasn't really been the exciting guy many people waited on hoping for a top-75 player. The issue is that the Nets have a number of wings playing similar minutes, like Wilson Chandler. Chandler played 22 minutes and scored 15 points with four triples.
January 23, 2020, 11:59 pmTaurean PrinceSF, Brooklyn Nets
Taurean Prince scored 18 points to go with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes on Thursday.
Prince contributed quite well across the board in this contest, which admittedly has not been the case that often for him. He's been tough to get excited about in shallower formats but there is still value in his shooting to keep him around in deeper formats.
January 23, 2020, 11:57 pmSpencer DinwiddiePG, Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie played 30 minutes on Thursday night, scoring seven points, grabbing seven boards and dishing out 13 assists.
Dinwiddie started next to Kyrie Irving in this contest. He had a good run holding down the fort when Irving was out, but Kyrie will eat into his value and usage, making Dinwiddie more of a late-round play for scoring and assists.
