October 29, 2018, 11:41 pmPaul MillsapF, Denver Nuggets
Paul Millsap recorded his best game of the 2018-19 season on Monday against the Davis-less Pelicans as he dropped 18 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two triples, one steal and one blocked shot.
His offensive efficiency complemented those counting stats as he hit 6-of-12 shots from the field and 4-of-4 shots from the free throw line. This is roughly the ceiling we can expect from Millsap at this stage of his career, so owners should ride production like this from him as long as he stays healthy.

Dante Exum (patellar tendon rehab) is still not ready to roll and will miss the Jazz's preseason game vs. the Kings on Monday.
Exum has been plagued with injuries his whole career, making him hard to trust in fantasy, even in the deepest of leagues.

October 13, 2019, 10:46 pmShabazz NapierPG, Minnesota Timberwolves
Shabazz Napier put up 11 points with four rebounds and three assists on 4-of-7 shooting in a win over Maccabi Haifa on Sunday.
Napier should have a pretty solid shot at the backup point guard spot, but that will likely not translate into fantasy value in standard leagues. He could have value in points and 3-pointers in deep leagues, but could be left on draft boards otherwise.
October 13, 2019, 10:42 pmJarrett CulverG-F, Minnesota Timberwolves
Jarrett Culver put up 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting in a 131-101 win over Maccabi Haifa on Sunday.
He added three rebounds and four assists to the box score. Culver should have a solid role in the Wolves' rotation, but he might not have fantasy value in standard leagues. He could be a triples and steals specialist in deeper leagues.
October 13, 2019, 10:33 pmTreveon GrahamSF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Treveon Graham played well in a win over Maccabi Haifa as he put up 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting in 12 minutes.
He made both of his attempts from beyond the arc and added two steals . The former Net will likely not have a key role in the Wolves' rotation, so he is not worth drafting in most formats.
October 13, 2019, 10:11 pmMoritz WagnerPF, Washington Wizards
Moritz Wagner did it all in 24 minutes vs. the Bucks, registering 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.
Wagner was productive in his last game vs. the Knicks as a starter, but this time he was great coming off the bench. The Wizards are going to lose a lot of games and Wagner will have opportunities to earn himself minutes on this rebuilding roster. After not getting many opportunities during his rookie campaign, keep Wagner in mind as you approach the last rounds of your draft.
October 13, 2019, 10:03 pmRui HachimuraPF, Washington Wizards
Against the Bucks on Sunday, Rui Hachimura produced 10 points (4-of-13 FGs, 1-of-8 FTs), 12 rebounds and three steals.
It was a mixed bag for Hachimura overall. While it is great to see the counting stats, Hachimura would be a real drain on fantasy rosters if he shot this poorly throughout the season. He is still slated for a starting role on the Wizards, and is well worth a late-round flier to see if he can continue to deliver numbers without the inefficient shooting.
October 13, 2019, 9:54 pmThomas BryantC, Washington Wizards
Thomas Bryant had a nice performance on Sunday vs. the Bucks, scoring 17 points on 6-of-13 shooting with five rebounds.
Bryant was also 4-of-8 from 3-point range. It is starting to look like Bryant will easily eclipse his average of 0.5 3-pointers from last year. He did this all in 26 minutes of action, and continues to look like a strong mid-round selection.
October 13, 2019, 9:50 pmIvica ZubacC, Los Angeles Clippers
Ivica Zubac had a solid performance on Sunday with 10 points and eight boards on 3-of-4 shooting in 20 minutes.
Zubac is going to be the starting center this season as the Clippers will bring Montrezl Harrell off the bench again. He added one steal and two blocks to the stat sheet. He should be drafted in the later rounds this season as he could provide value in efficiency, rebounding and blocks.
October 13, 2019, 9:49 pmGeorge HillPG, Milwaukee Bucks
George Hill got the start on Sunday and was relatively quiet with five points, five rebounds and three steals.
With Eric Bledsoe out for the next two to three weeks, Hill should be able to produce late-round value for the first few games of the regular season. If he gets off to a hot start, it is possible Hill could build himself a larger role, but with the talent on this roster that will be a difficult task for the veteran. Hill often finds himself deferring to his teammates, and does not make for a long-term quality fantasy asset in standard leagues.
October 13, 2019, 9:46 pmJerome RobinsonSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Jerome Robinson played 32 minutes in a win over Melbourne United on Sunday and scored 15 points on 4-of-11 shooting.
He will likely not have this big of a role in the regular season, but it was nice to see him show some flashes of offense in this game. He added five rebounds, three assists and two triples to the box score. He can be left on draft boards to start the season as he likely does not have a spot in the Clippers' rotation.
