November 27, 2018, 9:57 pmReggie JacksonG, Detroit Pistons
Reggie Jackson shot 6-for-12 from the floor and 7-for-7 from the line for 21 points with three boards, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Tuesday against the Knicks.
Jackson has been a top-100 player over the last two weeks, swiping 1.4 steals per game and shooting nearly 40% from the field. He likely won't continue to produce top-100 numbers and should be considered as a fringe waiver option in standard leagues.
November 11, 2019, 10:43 pmJahlil OkaforC, New Orleans Pelicans
Jahlil Okafor got off the bench on Monday for 16 minutes and scored 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting while chipping in five rebounds, an assist and a steal.
Okafor saw some more action tonight and played as well as the Pelicans could have asked for. The Rockets abused him a bit in the pick-and-roll and Brandon Ingram (sore knee) should return soon and knock Okafor out of the rotation.
November 11, 2019, 10:43 pmJames HardenPG, Houston Rockets
James Harden had an average night scoring the ball, dropping 39 points on 13-of-25 shooting to go with four rebounds, nine assists, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers in Monday's 122-116 win over the Pelicans.
Harden has been a fantasy monster as usual this season and the talks about no load management is wonderful news for fantasy GMs. The addition of Russell Westbrook hasn't slowed Harden's scoring pace down at all and once his triples start to fall at his average rate, we might see some ridiculous box scores coming from the Beard.
November 11, 2019, 10:42 pmKenrich WilliamsPF, New Orleans Pelicans
Kenrich Williams scored eight points on 3-of-8 shooting to go with 11 rebounds, two assists and two triples on Monday against the Rockets.
Williams put up some big rebounding numbers again with the Pelicans ailing, but Brandon Ingram should return soon and kill any value Williams has.
November 11, 2019, 10:42 pmJosh HartSG, New Orleans Pelicans
Josh Hart continued his strong play with 19 points on 5-of-8 shooting to go with four rebounds, four assists, two steals and four triples on Monday against the Rockets.
Hart has played himself into a prominent role in the Pelicans rotation and should be started confidently in all leagues. To start the year, he's averaging 11.9 points, 2.0 3s, 7.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals on .447 shooting. He's a bigger guard and leverages his body well to grab those extra boards.
November 11, 2019, 10:41 pmJJ RedickSG, New Orleans Pelicans
J.J. Redick was on fire beyond the arc, hitting 7-of-15 of his triples en route to 24 points while adding three assists.
Redick started and got extra run with Lonzo Ball sitting out his second consecutive game with a right adductor strain. His value is tied to 3-pointers which he gave owners tonight, but he's not reliable enough to trust on a daily basis with the Pelicans healthy.
November 11, 2019, 10:41 pmDerrick FavorsPF, New Orleans Pelicans
Derrick Favors posted a full-line on Monday, scoring 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting to go with 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks.
The Pelicans are running low on bodies and Favors was the guy to mop up some of the stats left behind. There's still a possible buy-low with Brandon Ingram returning soon, but Favors is a solid big to have at the end of your bench.
November 11, 2019, 10:39 pmRussell WestbrookPG, Houston Rockets
Russell Westbrook posted 26 points to go with five boards, four assists, four steals and a 3-pointer against the Pelicans on Monday.
Westbrook was on fire from mid-range today, hitting 6-for-8 from that area, but his 1-for-8 shooting from deep hampered what could have been a hyper-efficient day. His free throw shooting is still on and off, but the counting stats are there and he's shooting .462 from the floor on the season.
November 11, 2019, 10:38 pmClint CapelaC, Houston Rockets
Clint Capela was a beast on the boards again on Monday, hauling in 20 rebounds to go with 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting while adding an assist, a steal and two blocks.
That's his second consecutive 20-rebound game and Capela is getting back into a rhythm, slamming the buy-low window shut. The Rockets are starting to hit their stride thanks to his improved play and it looks like he finally has his legs under him.
November 11, 2019, 10:37 pmEric GordonSG, Houston Rockets
Eric Gordon broke through his slump on Monday with 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting while chipping in three boards, an assist, a block and four 3-pointers.
Gordon has been by far the worst rotational player for the Rockets and it looks like he finally busted out of another one of his signature prolonged slumps. If you need to cut bait for a hot free agent, we don't blame you at all as all he does is provide triples and points and those can easily be found on the wire. Even though he shot well tonight, he's too much of a sink on your percentages to suggest holding onto.
November 11, 2019, 10:36 pmPJ TuckerSF, Houston Rockets
P.J. Tucker failed to record any defensive stats on Monday, but scored 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting to go with a 3-pointer and seven rebounds.
After a big game on Saturday, Tucker cooled off a bit tonight, but he's still worth holding onto. He's going to be a bit inconsistent, but over the long haul, the numbers have him as a top-40 player on the year thanks to his 2.3 3s, 6.9 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 0.6 blocks.
