• Kenneth Faried
    F/C, Houston Rockets

    Kenneth Faried will start for James Harden (cervical strain) in Saturday's game against the Warriors.

    Faried immediately becomes a daily play in a matchup with the Warriors in what should be a high-paced game.

  • Jaren Jackson Jr.
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jaren Jackson Jr. scored a team-high 26 points on Saturday to go with four rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    JJJ has shown the ability to put up these scoring outbursts but isn't doing it consistently. Jackson Jr. is hovering around top-100 value but will need to stay out of foul trouble and be more consistent to reach his ADP. He is a buy-low target that could blow up late in the season.

  • Dillon Brooks
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Dillon Brooks (shoulder) started on Saturday and scored 10 points with two steals in 23 minutes.

    Brooks was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury but was able to play through it. Brooks is a late-round value in standard leagues and will have a boost in in the short term with Ja Morant (back) week-to-week.

  • Grayson Allen
    SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Grayson Allen scored 13 points on Saturday, shooting 6-of-9 from the field and 1-of-3 from deep in 25 minutes.

    Allen has played at least 25 minutes in four straight games, but he hasn't done much with the opportunity. Allen can be a streaming option for points and threes in deep leagues while Ja Morant is week-to-week.

  • De'Anthony Melton
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    De'Anthony Melton scored six points on Saturday with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 20 minutes.

    Melton has been a standard-league player since Ja Morant has been injured. Melton is a pickup in standard-leagues while Morant is week-to-week, and should be available in a lot of leagues with only 11 percent ownership on Yahoo.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    James Harden took over in the fourth after having a slow start to Saturday's 115-109 win and finished with 34 points, along with six rebounds, four assists, three steals, one block, three treys and no turnovers.

    Harden was struggling with his shot for most of the game but then scored 17 straight Rockets points to bring home the win. He only shot 8-of-27 from the field, including 3-of-17 from three and added 15-of-18 from the line. Also of note was that he had zero turnovers which is a season-best, as he averages 5.1 turnovers per game. The Beard is a fantasy beast.

  • T.J. McConnell
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. McConnell dropped 11 dimes on Saturday to go with six points on 3-of-3 shooting in 20 minutes.

    McConnell saw extra minutes with Malcolm Brogdon (sore right hand) sitting out on Saturday. McConnell can be left on the waiver wire and is only a streamer for assists when the Pacers are injured at point guard.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris dropped 25 points on Saturday, shooting 9-of-17 from the field and 4-of-8 from deep.

    Morris added little outside the points and threes, but he is still inside the top-75 on the back of his 18.6 points and 2.9 threes per game. Morris should be considered a sell-high candidate, especially since his role moving forward is uncertain as a veteran player on the struggling Knicks.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Russell Westbrook dominated with a triple double, as he scored 24 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, dished out 11 assists and added three steals, two blocks and one trey in Saturday's win against the Suns.

    Westbrook was efficient from the field as he found opening for drives to the hole. He went 10-of-18 from the field, including 1-of-3 from 3-point land. Hopefully, this will springboard him to more efficient shooting games for the rest of the season

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham has not been listed on the injury report after briefly leaving with an apparent shoulder injury last game and will start on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

    Graham looks to be healthy and has potential to put up big numbers in a favourable matchup against the defensively challenged Hawks. He is a projected to easily put up top-75 value for the rest of the season.

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Mitchell Robinson rejected three shots on Saturday to go with 14 points (6-of-9 from the field), seven rebounds and two steals in 25 minutes.

    Robinson shot 2-of-2 from the line and the key stat is that he only tallied one personal foul. Robinson is averaging 11.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 2.3 blocks over his last three games and could blow up in a hurry. His buy-low window could slam shut soon.
