• Kevin Knox
    F, New York Knicks

    Kevin Knox started and played 28 minutes in Wednesday's season finale against the Pistons, scoring nine points and grabbing seven rebounds on 3-of-12 shooting

    That line sort of encapsulates Knox's season. He had some post-draft hype leading into fantasy drafts this year, and as a result wound up on the end of several team’s benches in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. He didn’t quite live up to expectations, however, ending his rookie campaign with top-270/300 value (8-cat/9-cat) due in large part to his very poor shooting percentages (.371 FG, .716 FT). He showed chops as a scorer with 12.7 points and 1.7 3-pointers per game, but beyond that left a lot of holes in his fantasy game. He is also at risk of losing his starting job from numerous different angles (Durant or Zion come to mind), making him potentially a tough sell on draft day.

Fantasy News

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James scored 18 points with 11 dimes, four rebounds, a triple and a steal in Wednesday's 126-93 win over the Warriors.

    James might have played his last preseason game tonight, but he delivered for the fans in his 25 minutes of action. He bullied the Warriors tonight and dished out some beautiful dimes, including a backwards overhead toss straight into Danny Green's shooting pocket which ended up with a bucket. The King has his help this year with Davis so the numbers will come, but we can expect him to take a bit of a backseat and more rest days as he saves his body for the playoffs.

  • Avery Bradley
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Avery Bradley scored 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting with four triples against the Warriors on Wednesday.

    Bradley did nothing but score the ball tonight and if he isn't red-hot from deep, he isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues. Danny Green (eight points, two triples, two assists and a steal) isn't a sexy option, but provides more for fantasy owners and Quinn Cook (16 points, four triples, two rebounds and three assists) is going to have to prove he can produce when the Lakers play their full rotation.

  • JaVale McGee
    C, Los Angeles Lakers

    JaVale McGee scored 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, a steal and a block vs. the Warriors on Wednesday.

    McGee looks solid in short spurts and the Lakers look like they have a solid rotation at center between he and Dwight Howard (13 points and seven rebounds). McGee is the man to own here, but both are decent options at the end of your drafts.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis scored eight points on 3-of-9 shooting with 10 boards, eight assists, a steal and two blocks in Wednesday's preseason game against the Warriors.

    It doesn't matter what position he plays, Davis will put up huge numbers this season as he looks ready to go after a thumb injury scare. The eight dimes are a nice wrinkle and the Lakers are going to generate a lot of open looks for their role players with Davis and LeBron James drawing all of the attention.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    D'Angelo Russell scored 23 points on 8-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's preseason match against the Lakers.

    Russell played 27 minutes, which was near the 30 minute mark that the Warriors said they'd play him. He was one of the few productive Warriors players in tonight's game and should slot in as the second highest usage player behind Stephen Curry (rest) which means he'll be someone to target in the earlier rounds.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green scored 10 points on 4-of-14 shooting with four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Green went 0-for-5 from deep and if he can't get his 3-point shooting right, it'll hurt his fantasy value a bit. He's still going to get it done defensively and the Warriors are going to hand him more shots this year so his baseline counting stats production is still safe.

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley scored a game-high 30 points in Wednesday's 124-110 win over Melbourne United to go with 14 rebounds, one assist, three steals and a block.

    Bagley went 12-for-17 from the floor and missed both free throw attempts, but he continued his impressive play in the preseason tonight. He went 6-for-10 at the line which highlights one of the few deficiencies in his fantasy game, but the numbers across the board make up for it.

  • Richaun Holmes
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Richaun Holmes started on Wednesday and scored two points with eight rebounds, two assists and a block.

    Holmes got the starting nod as Dewayne Dedmon (rest) sat this one out. He'll be a great play whenever Dedmon misses time, but he should still be able to scrape out some standard-league value regardless. If you don't know our love for Holmes, you haven't been around enough.

  • Buddy Hield
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Buddy Hield scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with three 3-pointers, six assists and two rebounds in Wednesday's game against Melbourne.

    Hield's six dimes are nice, but the zero on defensive stats is a bummer. If he can expand his game even further in either the assists or defense department, there's a higher ceiling than his current early-mid round value.

  • Harrison Barnes
    SF, Sacramento Kings

    Harrison Barnes finished Wednesday's game with 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting with six rebounds, two assists and a steal.

    Barnes was hot tonight, but his line is exactly why he's not a great fantasy player. Even though he shot well from the floor, he hit zero 3-pointers and was limited in contributions elsewhere. The Kings have a ton of talent so there's no need to give Barnes the ball that much.
