November 24, 2018, 11:05 pmKelly Oubre Jr.F, Washington Wizards
Kelly Oubre scored 12 points in 23 minutes on Saturday but still delivered for fantasy owners with four rebounds, three steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer.
Oubre didn't deal with foul trouble tonight but rather the strong play of Otto Porter, Markieff Morris and Austin Rivers. We understand that people have been frustrated with his play since joining the starting five but Oubre remains a must-own guy in 12-team leagues right now, and hopefully this line illustrates why.
November 15, 2019, 1:10 amKyrie IrvingPG, Brooklyn Nets
Kyrie Irving scored 17 points on 8-of-20 shooting to go with six rebounds, nine assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in Thursday's 93-101 loss to the Nuggets.
Irving couldn't get his shot to fall in the second half, but he still delivered on the dimes tonight. He's still one of the top players in the league and if a slow stretch can pry open even the smallest buy-low window, you have to pounce on it. The only warning sign is his health as he played through a shoulder injury today.
November 15, 2019, 1:09 amJarrett AllenC, Brooklyn Nets
Jarret Allen scored 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting to go with 10 rebounds and a block on Thursday.
Allen had a monster game, contesting almost every shot in the paint, but the Nets just couldn't keep things going in the second half. He's clearly the better player between he and DeAndre Jordan (17 minutes, zero points, 11 rebounds, three assists and a block) and it's good to see the minutes reflect that.
November 15, 2019, 1:08 amSpencer DinwiddiePG, Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie led the Nets' bench in scoring on Thursday with 17 points to go with a rebound, four assists and a 3-pointer.
Dinwiddie will see the biggest boost in playing time with Caris LeVert (thumb) out with a multiple week injury. He was up-and-down prior to this news, but we like Dinwiddie here because he always finds a way to crack standard-league value. Kyrie Irving doesn't have the cleanest bill of health either, which made Dinwiddie one of the most valuable backups to own.
November 15, 2019, 1:08 amTaurean PrinceSF, Brooklyn Nets
Tauren Prince had an inefficient night shooting the ball on Thursday, going 5-for-15 from the floor on his way to 12 points with eight rebounds, two assists and two triples.
Prince should be able to churn out some standard-league value while Caris LeVert (thumb) is sidelined for the next few weeks. He won't be as good as he was on the Hawks. but the points, triples and steals are still there.
November 15, 2019, 1:07 amJoe HarrisSF, Brooklyn Nets
Joe Harris scored nine points on 4-of-11 shooting with three rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Harris was held to only nine points tonight and only attempted three shots from deep. He should be much better on the next one and while he won't light up the scoreboard, the triples should come at a higher rate.
November 15, 2019, 12:52 amAllen CrabbeSG, Atlanta Hawks
Allen Crabbe made his Hawks debut on Thursday, playing 15 minutes and scoring two points.
There are a lot of bodies in Atlanta so we'll see how much action Crabbe actually ends up getting. With enough volume he could be a 3-point specialist who could have value in deep leagues.
November 15, 2019, 12:45 amDevin BookerSG, Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker was strong again on Thursday with 27 points, three 3-pointers and seven assists as the Suns beat the Hawks 128-112.
The turnovers were high in this one for Booker as he coughed it up seven times but he continued his hot-shooting November making half of his field goals. The shooting clip for the month is still above 60 percent. Obviously, that's not sustainable but if Booker can stay above last season's 46.7% fantasy owners will be thrilled with his outlook.
November 15, 2019, 12:41 amCameron JohnsonSF, Phoenix Suns
Cameron Johnson played 20 minutes on Thursday, scoring 15 points and hitting three triples.
Johnson played more minutes than Mikal Bridges (14) in this contest as Bridges quickly picked up five fouls. That likely won't be the norm, so we can keep Johnson on the periphery. However, he has a chance to be a 3-point specialist if there's an injury on the depth chart ahead of him.
November 15, 2019, 12:38 amDario SaricPF, Phoenix Suns
Dario Saric scored 23 points (9-of-12 shooting) and grabbed six boards in a win over the Hawks on Thursday.
Saric was very efficient in this contest and has somewhat surprisingly been a top-100 player so far. The profile is good but the game log won't be without warts. Frank Kaminsky also produced well off the bench with Aron Baynes in foul trouble, notching 19 points and six boards. Baynes is a hold and Kaminsky is still a reluctant stream.
November 15, 2019, 12:29 amKelly Oubre Jr.SF, Phoenix Suns
Kelly Oubre bounced back on Thursday with 30 points, seven rebounds and two steals to lead the Suns to a win over the Hawks.
Oubre was a guiding force for the team after a horrendous time in the loss to the Lakers on Tuesday. There was pretty good contribution across the board in this one with three assists and a couple triples as well. He should settle in as a top-75 player for the season.
