Willie Cauley-Stein was excellent on Wednesday, finishing 10-of-15 from the field for 21 points while compiling 10 rebounds, an assist and three blocks in a 100-105 loss to the Rockets.
Cauley-Stein seems to be picking up right where he left off last season and should cruise to top-100 value. If the blocks come back, as they did tonight, he’s got middle-round upside. The defense has always been key to Cauley-Stein’s fantasy appeal, though he showed last season that he could still make an impact on the back of points, rebounds and field goal percentage. It should go without saying but you need to keep WCS in your lineups going forward.
