Thaddeus Young finished Monday's win over the Hawks with six points, five rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block.
Young couldn't repeat his 21-point performance against these same Hawks from last week but he still produced in multiple categories to help fantasy owners out. He remains a steady option to help fill out rosters with great out-of-position steals output.
November 17, 2019, 9:27 pmThomas BryantC, Washington Wizards
Thomas Bryant did not excite on Sunday, but he got the job done with 14 points, six rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer and one block vs. the Magic.
Bryant has not delivered a huge line in a while, but he has cruised along to mid-round value by offering all kinds of stats anyway. Try sneaking in a trade offer to his owner if they are the type that is interested in flashier fantasy names.
November 17, 2019, 9:25 pmEvan FournierSF, Orlando Magic
Evan Fournier had a great game on Sunday as he put up 25 points and nine assists on 7-of-13 shooting in a win over the Wizards.
Fournier has proven that he is worth owning in all formats due his consistent top-100 production. He added one rebound, one steal and five triples to the stat sheet. Terrence Ross chipped in 15 points on 4-of-11 shooting. Ross is more of a deeper league shooting and steals specialist.
November 17, 2019, 9:20 pmMarkelle FultzPG, Orlando Magic
Markelle Fultz set a career-high with 19 points on 8-of-10 shooting in a win over the Wizards on Sunday.
Fultz has averaged double figures on just under 50-percent shooting this season, so it is nice to see the former No. 1 pick getting things going. He sealed the game with a steal and dunk late in the fourth quarter. He outplayed D.J Augustin, who had 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting. Neither guy holds standard league value, but Fultz is the preferred option of the two due to his potential to produce late-round value.
November 17, 2019, 9:18 pmIsaiah ThomasPG, Washington Wizards
Isaiah Thomas was solid on Sunday against the Magic, delivering 13 points, five assists and two steals on 6-of-13 shooting.
This performance was not flashy, but it gets the job done for fantasy purposes. Thomas has settled into a stable role around 30 minutes a night, and considering how high-scoring the Wizards games have been Thomas has an enticing setup to take on a larger scoring load.
November 17, 2019, 9:13 pmDavis BertansF, Washington Wizards
On Sunday vs. the Magic, Davis Bertans let it rain from deep as he scored 15 points on 5-of-11 3-point shooting along with eight rebounds and two steals.
We know Bertans will always be good for 3-pointers, but the increased rebounding of late would be a welcome addition to his fantasy game. If you are in need of 3-pointers Bertans is your guy, just don't expect much else from the low thrills fantasy option.
November 17, 2019, 9:12 pmNikola VucevicC, Orlando Magic
Nikola Vucevic scored 30 points with 17 rebounds on 11-of-14 shooting in a 125-121 win over the Wizards on Sunday.
The buy-low window is officially shut for Vucevic, who had a slow start to the season. He is poised for his second consecutive top-20 finish, so congrats if you took advantage of the buy-low opportunity. He added six assists, one block and three 3-pointers to the box score. Aaron Gordon did not quite have the game that Vucevic had, as he put up just 13 points and nine boards on 5-of-16 shooting. Gordon has a buy-low window as he should climb into top-100 territory.
November 17, 2019, 9:05 pmJaren Jackson Jr.PF, Memphis Grizzlies
Jaren Jackson Jr. nailed five 3-pointers on his way to 22 points on Sunday, as he made the most of his 23 minutes against the Nuggets.
After a rough shooting night against the Jazz on Friday, Jackson got right back to his strong shooting from 3-point range, and has now hit four or more 3-pointers in three out of his last four games. It would appear JJJ is not going to snag a ton of rebounds (5.4) this season so you'll have to settle for enjoying bounties of 3-pointers and ideally Jackson's blocks (1.1) rise alongside his playing time (26.9 minutes).
November 17, 2019, 8:58 pmJA MorantPG, Memphis Grizzlies
Ja Morant had one of his weaker performances on Sunday versus the Nuggets, going for 13 points, six assists, one 3-pointer and four turnovers.
This comes with the territory for a rookie with Morant's considerable talents. Until Morant can start hitting 3-pointers or racking up steals his value is going to be kept in check, but it is apparent that he is only going to get better, and will be a strong finisher in all likelihood this season.
November 17, 2019, 8:52 pmJonas ValanciunasC, Memphis Grizzlies
Jonas Valanciunas managed to double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds, while chipping in two 3-pointers over the course of 22 minutes on Sunday.
Valanciunas is always able to provide useful production but is still unable to carve out major minutes with the Grizzlies. The blowout was probably the biggest issue restricting his numbers today, but much like every season he spent with the Raptors, it appears we are not going to see Valanciunas get unleashed as a fantasy beast this season either.
November 17, 2019, 8:46 pmBrandon ClarkePF, Memphis Grizzlies
Brandon Clarke did not miss on Sunday, as he went for 19 points (8-of-8 FG), five rebounds and two 3-pointers.
Clarke continues to hum along to solid late-round fantasy value as he regularly posts terrific shooting numbers. After he has a down game or two consider trying to acquire him from an inpatient fantasy owner and enjoy the benefits as the youngster's role increases as the season progresses.
