• Jeff Teague made just 2-of-11 from the floor and 1-of-2 from the line for five points but did hand out 10 assists to go with three rebounds on Saturday.

    That’s back-to-back games with less than seven points for Teague, and while we wouldn’t advise panicking just yet, it’s definitely something to keep a close eye on.  Owner may want to consider benching him for the next game if the potential negative impact on field-goal percentage will be an issue.  He’s been having a good season overall, so we would expect him to get it turned around at some point.

  • Ben McLemore
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Ben McLemore got the start and scored 20 points, along with four rebounds, one assist, two steald and four treys on Saturday.

    The Rockets were missing Russell Westbrook, Eric Gordon, Danuel House and Clint Capela so McLemore had a lot more opportunity. He is still only a deep-league player with Westbrook and House not expected to be out for long.

  • Bryn Forbes
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    Bryn Forbes scored 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting with little else in a 121-116 loss to the Blazers on Saturday.

    Forbes has low upside but can be relied on for points and threes. Expect him to contribute nothing outside of those two categories though.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell was hot from the field tonight scoring 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting adding a career-high six 3's to go along with six rebounds, an assist and steal in Saturday's loss to the Mavericks.

    After a frigid game three nights ago against the Blazers, Powell woke up and was incredibly efficient from behind the arc. The six 3's are a career high and the Raptors relied on his shot tonight. He will continue to provide value for fantasy owners while teammate Kyle Lowry remains out with injury.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers got the start and scored 19 points, along with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block on Saturday.

    Austin Rivers got the start with Russell Westbrook resting on the second night of a back-to-back set. With Westbrook expected to return next game, Rivers is only a deep-league player.

  • Rudy Gay
    SF, San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay scored 16 points (5-of-7 from the field) on Saturday to go with four rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes.

    Gay won't wow people with his stats, but he is a solid late-round player with a consistent role.

  • Goga Bitadze
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Goga Bitadze only played 12 minutes on Saturday with the Pacers back at full strength.

    Myles Turner showed no rust despite missing a couple weeks, logging 35 minutes, which basically ate up all of Bitadze's upside. You can hang on for another game if you want given his elite blocks potential, but the rookie looks destined for deep-league status until another injury strikes.

  • Chris Clemons
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Chris Clemons got hot from three with five triples to help him score 19 points, and added one rebound and two steals on Saturday.

    Chris Clemons came off the bench to play 28 minutes and wasn't shy, attempting 11 shots. He is only a stream option at best.

  • Justin Holiday
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Justin Holiday drew the start on Saturday but could only muster nine points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 34 minutes of action.

    Holiday has been a standard-league guy in the past with minutes like this but he'll only play this much while Malcolm Brogdon and TJ McConnell are out. If Indiana is shorthanded for their next game you can consider Holiday a steals and threes streamer.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo double-doubled on Saturday with 18 points (8-of-11 from the floor), 14 rebounds, four assists, two steals and three blocks in 34 minutes.

    The breakout season continues for Bam and he is currently ranked top-30 in 9-cat after Saturday with averages of 13.9 points, 10.6 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks while shooting .588 from the field and .622 from the line. Adebayo's free throw percentage has been a problem this season, but there is room to improve as he shot .735 from the line last season. Everything else is great for Bam and his owners should enjoy the ride.

  • Naz Mitrou-Long
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Naz Mitrou-Long received 14 minutes of playing time on Saturday, picking up two points, three rebounds and three assists.

    Mitrou-Long got season-highs across the board with Malcolm Brogdon and TJ McConnell ruled out. He's a name to at least know in 30-team formats.
