Stanley Johnson set career highs in points (26) and rebounds (10) in Tuesday’s win over the Cavs, and also added four assists to go with two steals, one block and one trey in 40 minutes.
Johnson has had stat set issues throughout his short career and Blake Griffin has yet to arrive, so those are two very key points to hold against this result here. If you want to speculate that he can be a late-round value with two key players in his positional group heading out, that’s fair but it’s not a lock that he’s going to be a top-150 player. Reggie Bullock is the better bet of the two beneficiaries and had 22 points, two boards, two assists and four treys. We like his chances of sitting inside that top-150 group.

Kyle Kuzma started and finished Wednesday night's contest with 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting, five rebounds, two assists, and three 3-pointers.
Kuzma has put together a nice streak of games. He adds scoring and 3-pointers, but can't find a way to help teams in other categories. Kuzma will likely end up having late round value at this pace.
November 14, 2019, 1:53 amJaVale McGeeC, Los Angeles Lakers
JaVale McGee put up a double-double on Wednesday, finishing with 18 points, 17 boards, two assists, three steals and three blocks.
McGee was the better center in this contest and played 28 minutes to Dwight Howard's (15 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one block) 20 minutes. McGee put up one of his best performances of the season, but it's hard to get too excited by one night of work. Howard seems to be the center to own for the Lakers.
November 14, 2019, 1:46 amD'Angelo RussellPG, Golden State Warriors
D'Angelo Russell ended the night with 21 points, two rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block.
Russell is clearly the go-to option on this Golden State team. He is a top-40 guy right now and has the potential to keep that up for the rest of the year.
November 14, 2019, 1:40 amDraymond GreenPF, Golden State Warriors
Draymond Green didn't contribute much on Wednesday, ending with 10 points, only one rebound, five assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers.
Green contributed in each category, barely. It was nice to see him knock down a couple shots from beyond the arc, but these are hardly the numbers owners were expecting when taking Green in the early rounds. He is currently returning top-125 value and could be a great buy-low opportunity, but it's hard to trust much on the Warriors right now.
November 14, 2019, 1:35 amWillie Cauley-SteinC, Golden State Warriors
Willie Cauley-Stein scored 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting and added five rebounds, three assists and two blocks on Wednesday.
Cauley-Stein had the best game of the Golden State big men (Marquese Chriss ended scoreless with six boards, two assists and two blocks) and is having a top-100 year so far. He might be doing it quietly, but it's hard to fault you if want to pick up Cauley-Stein now.
November 14, 2019, 1:28 amEric PaschallPF, Golden State Warriors
Eric Paschall came off the bench on Wednesday and dropped 15 points with three rebounds.
Paschall still logged 32 minutes but didn't stuff the stat sheet like we have seen in the past. He put a nice move on LeBron, but he is starting to regress despite taking 15 shots in this one. If you picked him up, he is worth holding onto for a bit longer.
November 14, 2019, 1:19 amDamian LillardPG, Portland Trail Blazers
Damian Lillard had trouble finding his rhythm in Wedensday night's 114-106 loss to the Raptors, ending with nine points (2-for-12 shooting), 10 assists, two blocks and two from deep.
Lillard had a rough time finding the bottom of the net in this one, but still managed to get 10 dimes and two blocks. Lillard is a top-5 player right now and there is no reason to worry after tonight's performance.
November 14, 2019, 1:14 amCJ McCollumSG, Portland Trail Blazers
C.J. McCollum finished the night with 19 points, six rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and hitting three shots from deep on Wednesday.
McCollum has been shaky this season and it was nice to see an uptick in 3-pointers and rebounds in this one. He will likely pick it up as the season continues, and if you're looking for a buy-low candidate, this might be a good target for you.
November 14, 2019, 1:10 amRodney HoodSG, Portland Trail Blazers
Rodney Hood (back spams) returned to action on Wednesday night and dropped 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting, two boards, an assist and five 3-pointers.
Hood looks like someone that should be owned in standard leagues as he is providing nice numbers from deep and shooting 50 percent from the field this season. He's currently inside the top-120.
November 14, 2019, 1:04 amAnfernee SimonsSG, Portland Trail Blazers
Anfernee Simons came off the bench on Wednesday and finished with 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting and three 3-pointers.
Simons can hold some value in deep leagues due to his ability to score and knock down shots from deep. The upside is there, but at this point, he doesn't hold much value in standard leagues.
