Jusuf Nurkic scored 13 points and added nine boards, three dimes and four blocks (including two key ones down the stretch) in Wednesday's win over the Jazz.
Nurk's 2.3 turnovers a game really makes a difference depending on the format. In 8-cat he had top-80 value per game but only top-110 in 9-cat. He played in 79 games so his value was the same on the season. Most owners were expecting better than top-80/110 value when they drafted him but the Bosnian Bear started off the season in a funk; he was out-of-shape, unable to finish anything around the rim and was generally playing uninspired ball. He gradually improved as the season went on, holding top-60 value over the last three months and a very nice top-30 value over the last month which is right when H2H owners needed it.
