November 25, 2018, 8:42 pmJaren Jackson Jr.F/C, Memphis Grizzlies
Jaren Jackson Jr. joined rare air on Sunday evening when he recorded seven blocks with at least three triples, becoming the seventh player in NBA history to ever do so.
The 19-year-old Jackson Jr. finished the game with 16 points, seven blocks, four triples, six boards and three assists while hitting 6-of-6 shots. If Jackson keeps playing like this he will be in the conversation for Rookie of the Year, especially as he learns to stay out of foul trouble.

Jamal Murray had a solid outing in Tuesday's 121-125 loss to the Hawks, producing 18 points on 7-of-16 shooting with eight assists, three rebouns, one steal and one block.
Murray has had his ups and downs this season but will still average out as a mid-round play EOS. Monte Morris delivered 14 points (6-of-11 shooting) with three rebounds and four assists in 22 minutes off the bench.
November 13, 2019, 12:02 amAnthony DavisPF-C, Los Angeles Lakers
Anthony Davis led the Lakers to a win over the Suns on Tuesday with 24 points (9-for-17 FGs, 5-for-6 FTs), 12 rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and a three in 38 minutes.
Davis caught an elbow in the ribs early in this one and had to get taped up and visit the locker room on another occasion for the same issue. He's put up the 3rd-best fantasy value so far, which is impressive considering his collection of injuries. He seems due for a rest day soon after having played in every game to this point.

November 13, 2019, 12:00 amWill BartonSG, Denver Nuggets
Will Barton was a sight for sore eyes on Tuesday, leading the Nuggets with 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting, nine rebounds, four assists, four 3s and one steal.
Barton has been a top-50 player so far this season and has shown no signs of slowing down. His resurgence was not something many accounted for, thinking Michael Porter Jr. and/or Jerami Grant would pose threats to his playing time. Alas, Barton has wound up thrilling his owners, surpassing his ADP with apparent ease.
November 12, 2019, 11:50 pmJimmy ButlerSG, Miami Heat
Jimmy Butler led the Heat to victory over Detroit with 20 points (6-for-13 FGs, 8-for-11 FTs), 13 assists, three rebounds and two steals in 39 minutes on Tuesday.
Butler is up to 17th/12th (8-cat/9-cat) in per-game ranks now. His 2.7 steals should drop a bit, but he's looking like he'll provide another top-20 season.
November 12, 2019, 11:49 pmAlex LenC, Atlanta Hawks
Despite being demoted to a reserve role on Tuessday, Alex Len rose to the occasion and delivered 17 points on 6-of-8 shooting, adding seven rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer and one block.
There's nothing like someone taking your starting job to snap you out of your stupor of mediocrity. That's what happened to him tonight. Damian Jones drew the start but was unimpressive with eight points (4-of-5 shooting), three rebounds, two assists and one block. Expect this frontcourt shuffle to be an occasional occurrence, making it hard to trust either big man. Look elsewhere for your needs if you value stability.
November 12, 2019, 11:40 pmJabari ParkerPF, Atlanta Hawks
Jabari Parker chipped in 20 points on 8-of-18 shooting, nine rebounds, one trey and four assists in Tuesday's win over the Nuggets.
Parker has been playing well as a fill-in starter for John Collins (suspension). But as a placeholder, consider selling high on him in 2-3 weeks before Collins' return.
November 12, 2019, 11:37 pmTrevor ArizaSF, Sacramento Kings
Trevor Ariza will not return to Tuesday's game against the Blazers due to a sore right groin.
Ariza's night ends with two steals and one rebound in four minutes. He's been getting solid minutes, but his fantasy game just isn't what it was a few years back. Ariza can be left alone in standard leagues.

November 12, 2019, 11:36 pmTrae YoungPG, Atlanta Hawks
Trae Young was more than a handful as the Hawks upset the Nuggets 125-121 on Tuesday, recording 42 points on 13-of-21 shooting (eight 3s), four rebounds, 11 assists and one block.
Young was a beast, plain and simple. He's currently a top-25 player in 9-cat but is flashing the upside worthy of top-15 or even top-10 value. Trae is proving that he's worth all the pre-draft hype.
November 12, 2019, 11:33 pmKendrick NunnPG, Miami Heat
Kendrick Nunn had his best game of the month in a victory over the Pistons on Tuesday, going for 20 points (6-for-16 FGs, 4-for-5 FTs), three rebounds, five assists, two assists and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
That should put Nunn owners at ease a bit as he hadn't had more than 11 points in his previous four games. He may never have a stretch close to the one that began his career unless Jimmy Butler misses time again, but he's locked into his starting role and should be worth starting in standard leagues for the foreseeable future.
November 12, 2019, 11:24 pmBam AdebayoC, Miami Heat
Bam Adebayo put up a very efficient double-double with 18 points (8-of-9 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), 14 rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes in a 117-108 home win over the Pistons on Tuesday.
Adebayo hasn't quite hit the level that eager drafters had hoped, but he's not far off. Though the defensive stats were missing in this one, he's averaging 1.6 steals and 1.4 blocks for the season. Adebayo is also in line for some better results from the free throw line, so he could easily crack the top-50 before too long.
