• Nerlens Noel
    F/C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Nerlens Noel scored 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds, one steal and five blocks over 34 minutes in a start for Steven Adams (ankle) on Tuesday against the Magic.

    With the late-round floor and the possibility of getting action in the event Adams, who has been beat up this year, gets hurt – it's safe to say there are more than a few of us with him rostered. You might deal with occasional duds but he's a top 120-150 value (9/8 cat) on the season in 14 mpg. You can do the math from there.

  • Damion Lee
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Damion Lee succeeded in his first start of the season, going for 13 points (6-of-15 FG), five rebounds, five assists, one steal and two turnovers vs. the Kings on Sunday.

    The Warriors rotation is wide open for talent to prevail, but we have seen many players cycle through with a strong string of games before giving way to new competitors. The Warriors only have two games next week so you will have to exude some real patience to see a return and grab Lee based off of this performance.

  • Willie Cauley-Stein
    C, Golden State Warriors

    Willie Cauley-Stein continued his strong play of late on Sunday, going for 14 points (7-of-9 FG), five rebounds, two assists, six steals and three turnovers against the Kings.

    Cauley-Stein's defensive numbers are continuing to thrive, as he threw together six steals over 30 minutes of action tonight. Kevon Looney (0-of-5 FG, zero points, one rebound, one assist and one steal) continues to stink it up, and Cauley-Stein appears to have a steady grasp on the majority of the center minutes.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    D'Angelo Russell struggled to produce eight points (2-of-9 FG), eight assists, one 3-pointer and four turnovers on Sunday against the Kings.

    The eight assists were not enough to make up for the lousy shooting and four turnovers. On the positive side Russell still received 27 minutes in a game that was not close in the second half.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green was invisible with seven points (3-of-7 FG), three assists, two rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal and two turnovers, as the Warriors were soundly defeated by the Kings on Sunday.

    If the Warriors are not playing competitively it is safe to assume that Draymond is going to have a lousy showing. Until this team strings some close games together it will be difficult to develop enough momentum to sell-high on Green. Stephen Curry's injury has really decimated Draymond's season.

  • Buddy Hield
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Buddy Hield tallied 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting in a blowout win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Hield finds most of his value in scoring and shooting, but he produces so well in those categories that he maintains top-60 value. He should be able to stay in that range even when De'Aaron Fox returns.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Julius Randle went for 20 points (8-of-19 FG, 3-of-3 FT), nine rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal and one turnover vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Randle is showing some signs of settling into a slightly more efficient version of himself. He had just one turnover and shot a perfect 3-of-3 from the line. Less is more when it comes to Randle's fantasy game. The Knicks have been competitive this week and perhaps that will encourage Randle to stop forcing things on the offensive end.

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley put up 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting with six rebounds in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Bagley has played well since returning from injury, so it will be interesting to see how his minutes affect Richaun Holmes and Nemanja Bjelica. Holmes had nine points and five boards on 4-of-5 shooting and Bjelica had two points on 1-of-2 shooting. Holmes and Bagley are the preferred two to own going forward.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Bogdan Bogdanovic put up 25 points on 9-of-11 shooting in a 100-79 win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Bogdanovic knocked down four triples and added five rebounds and five assists to the box score. He has been a detriment to fantasy squads over the last two weeks, but his potential to maintain late-round value with triples, assists and steals makes him worth owning in most formats.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris bounced back with 22 points (8-of-18 FG), five rebounds, three 3-pointers and one steal as the Knicks lost to the Nuggets on Sunday.

    The scoring has been up-and-down for Morris lately, but he is still piling up 3-pointers and points on solid shooting for the season. Try to sell him if you can, but most people are onto the likely endgame where he gets dealt away from New York. Mitchell Robinson was able to crack 24 minutes and string together eight points (4-of-5 FG), seven rebounds, one steal and one block in a decent line. He only had four fouls and has been getting more minutes lately. Now we need to see Robinson unleash some gigantic block totals.

  • Will Barton
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton dropped 16 points on 7-of-16 shooting with nine rebounds and four assists in a win over the Knicks on Sunday.

    Barton has been a consistent asset for owners as he does not really damage fantasy squads in any category and is a top-60 option on the season. He has consistently outplayed fellow wing Gary Harris, who put up 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting. Harris is a solid triples and steals specialist for deeper leagues.
