• Malik Monk
    G, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk suffered a quad contusion on Wednesday, headed to the locker room and is available to return.

    Monk has been up and down and an injury will only serve to dampen his appeal. He's a shaky play even in deep leagues until he gets some consistent run.

  • Jonas Valanciunas
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jonas Valanciunas looked great in Monday's win over the Spurs, posting a double-double of 18 points and 12 rebounds to go with an assist, two blocks and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

    This was one of Valanciunas' better games of the season, with no real downsides to this line aside from the two trunovers. It's been tougher than anticipated for him to come by minutes with the emergence of per-minute stud Brandon Clarke (14 points, eight rebounds and two triples in 18 minutes tonight), but it's difficult to imagine he doesn't finish the year with higher averages than just 21 minute a night. If you have him keep holding on tight.

  • Tyus Jones
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Tyus Jones scored eight points on 3-of-10 shooting to go with six assists on Monday.

    Jones could be a starter for a couple teams as he's more talented than your average backup point guard. He closed out the fourth quarter because Ja Morant wasn't playing well, but his upside is still limited with both guards healthy. Jones should still post solid low-end assist and steal numbers though.

  • Jonas Valanciunas
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jonas Valanciunas posted a double-double with 18 points and 12 boards to go with an assist and two blocks on Monday against the Spurs.

    Valanciunas was a bit frustrating to own heading into tonight's game, but this type of stat line is why you have to hold on tight. The Grizzlies frontcourt has a lot of talent and there's enough to go around for everyone to post strong value.

  • Brandon Clarke
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Brandon Clarke came off the bench for 18 minutes on Monday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-7 shooting to go with eight rebounds, an assist and two triples.

    Clarke continues to shine in his brief moments on the court. He only logged 18 minutes tonight, but still got it done on the glass and is almost a lock for a positive plus-minus. He should start to see increased playing time as the year goes on and there's enough for everyone in the Grizzlies' frontcourt to eat.

  • Dillon Brooks
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Dillon Brooks led the Grizzlies with a game-high 21 points on Monday, while adding two rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.

    He went 8-for-17 from the floor and 4-for-6 at the line. Brooks has been the best option at shooting guard for the Grizzlies and hopefully you held onto him throughout his mini slump. There aren't many options for wing scorers in Memphis which gives Brooks some extra leash to work with.

  • Jake Layman
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jake Layman was hot on Monday vs. the Pistons as he hit four treys off the bench as part of a 16-point night on 6-of-9 field goals with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block in 33 minutes.

    Layman has exceeded 22 minutes in each game so far this season. His field goal percentage should regress from his current 41.7 percent to a number closer to his 50.9 percent from last season. He's not quite standard-league material, but he's a worthy streamer.

  • JA Morant
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Ja Morant struggled to get anything going on Monday, scoring nine points on 2-of-12 shooting to go with four rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer.

    He only logged 25 minutes due to his poor play tonight. Morant was awful shooting the ball and was benched in favor of Tyus Jones to finish the game. The Grizzlies are still going to manage his minutes, but even with all of these factors, we're not worried as he's a stud.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jae Crowder scored eight points on 3-of-5 shooting to go with 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on Monday against the Spurs.

    Crowder continues to get the bulk of the minutes at the forward spot and there's not anyone really challenging him for the job. He's a low-upside play.

  • Jaren Jackson Jr.
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jaren Jackson Jr. looked great again on Monday, finishing with a team-high 24 points (10-of-17 shooting) to go with six rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and four triples in 37 minutes.

    The 24 points set a new season-high for the young big man. JJJ has been shooting the lights out of the ball over his last three games, going for an efficient 57% from the floor on a high-volume 15 shot attempts per contest. It looks like he's starting to shake the rust off offensively, and the defensive production looks to be on the way up as well. His buy-low window is closing quickly.

  • Robert Covington
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Robert Covington briefly left Monday's game after getting poked in the eye, but he returned quickly during the win over Detroit.

    Covington only was able to play 23 minutes, but his line was still serviceable with 10 points (2-for-8 FGs, 4-4 FTs), four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two triples. He's provided fifth round value so far this season. But as always, others might not realize how valuable he's been and should be for the rest of the season. He's constantly a buy-low target.
