• Jonas Valanciunas
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Jonas Valanciunas scored 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting with four rebounds and a block against the Warriors on Thursday.

    Valanciunas alternates good and bad days but it all levels out to be a top-100 player at a minimum which isn't too shabby for a team loaded with depth.

  • Eric Paschall
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Eric Paschall took control of the Warriors' offense on Sunday vs. the Pelicans, contributing 30 points (10-of-17 FG, 8-of-10 FT), seven rebounds and two 3-pointers.

    Paschall was cooking in this one, and he has now scored 15 or more points in six out of his last eight games. D'Angelo Russell will be out for a couple weeks at minimum, and Paschall faces few challenges for touches from the remaining healthy bodies. He is not going to deliver many hustle stats or assists, but he has an excellent runway to pile up efficient points and steady rebounding figures to create mid-round value.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green struggled from the field (2-of-10 FG) on Sunday, but was able to deliver six rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

    This is a realistic expectation for what Draymond can deliver alongside the kids left on the Warriors. He is not going to deliver the early-round production many were projecting for this season, but he will still create plenty of hustle stats while going for mid-round value.

  • E'Twaun Moore
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    E'Twaun Moore put up 10 points and seven rebounds in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Moore put up 14,15 and 18 points in his previous three contests, so he cooled off in this one. However, he was limited to just 24 minutes as he had five fouls. Kenrich Williams also had a lackluster performance as he put up five points, 10 rebounds and four assists on 2-of-8 shooting. Williams has provided late-round value over the last two weeks and is a solid streaming option when the Pelicans are missing some key players due to injury. Moore is a deep-league scoring and shooting option, but his value disappears when Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and Frank Jackson return to the court.

  • Glenn Robinson III
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Glenn Robinson III continues to get ample opportunities, and on Sunday he made out alright with 14 points (6-of-13 FG), six rebounds, one 3-pointer and two assists over 35 minutes.

    Robinson will keep on getting all the minutes he can handle, but that will not lead to major results. He can fill out a roster in 14-team leagues and does have some upside considering how injury-riddled the Warriors are at this point, but he has shown little interest in boosting his usage.

  • Nicolo Melli
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nicolo Melli saw the bulk of the center minutes off the bench and put up 16 points on five 3-pointers in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Melli saw extended run as the Pelicans were missing most of their key players and he made the most of his opportunity. He added five rebounds and three assists to the stat sheet in his 27 minutes of action. Melli provides deep-league shooting value, but his ceiling is capped at top-200 when the team is fully healthy.

  • Nickeil Alexander-Walker
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker put up 19 points on 7-of-18 shooting with five rebounds and four assists in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Alexander-Walker played 35 minutes and shined on the offensive end of the floor in this one. He knocked down five triples and showed that he is not afraid to shoot the ball. He is worth streaming when he is in line for big minutes due to injuries like he was tonight.

  • Ky Bowman
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Ky Bowman can take a bow after his performance on Sunday against the Pelicans, going off for 19 points (8-of-16 FG), three 3-pointers, four assists and one steal.

    Bowman's role will expand while D'Angelo Russell is out with a right thumb sprain for at least a couple of weeks. Realistically, the Warriors will not rush Russell back and Bowman could be a regular part of the rotation for months. Earlier this season Bowman was displaying strong points and assists numbers when pressed into a starting role, and he is worth picking up in standard leagues based off of this performance.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    J.J. Redick went off for 26 points on 8-of-16 shooting in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Redick shot 6-of-11 from beyond the arc and added three rebounds and three assists to the box score. Redick will be more of a deep-league shooting specialist this season, but he is worth streaming when he is in the starting lineup due to injuries.

  • Jaxson Hayes
    PF-C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jaxson Hayes picked up a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds in a 108-100 win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Hayes shot 3-of-5 from the field and added one steal and one block to the box score. When the Pelicans are fully healthy, he will likely not have a big enough role to warrant much fantasy value even in deeper leagues. However, he makes for a solid DFS start in games like this one when half of the roster is injured.

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal brought another strong performance to the table on Sunday vs. the Magic in a 121-125 defeat, scoring 34 points (12-of-26 FG), with five 3-pointers, eight assists and six rebounds.

    Beal received nearly 40 minutes of action tonight and is quickly ascending the fantasy ranks. We saw this from him last year already and it is no surprise that Beal's slow start is quickly being forgotten in fantasy circles. The buy-low window is firmly closed.
