• D’Angelo Russell (rest) is probable for Wednesday’s tilt against the Sixers.

    Russell has played in five of the last six games and averaged 18 minutes per game. This should slowly go up as the season progresses. Key word is “slowly” since the Nets have no incentive to rush him back to heavy minutes. Spencer Dinwiddie has taken over the starting point guard gig, but Russell should have the two spot by seasons end. For now owners will have to stomach mediocre stats. 

    Update: D’Angelo Russell will be available to play against the Sixers.

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal powered the Wizards to a 125-118 win over the Hornets on Friday, exploding for 30 points on 10-of-19 shooting with five rebounds, 12 dimes and four 3s.

    This is the fifth straight game where Beal has scored 30 points or more, further propelling him up the fantasy rankings. He's a legit top-10 threat and is thriving in a weapon-starved Wizards team.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Luke Kennard added nine points, nine assists, four rebounds, two steals, one three and a block in Friday's win over the Hawks.

    Kennard didn't have his shot going (4-for-11) so it was good to see him contribute in other ways. Langston Galloway chipped in 12 points on four triples in 27 minutes.

  • Davis Bertans
    F, Washington Wizards

    Davis Bertans was on full-auto mode on Friday, knocking down 6-of-11 shots from deep en route to his 20 points (7-of-13 shooting), eight rebounds, four assists and one steal.

    This is a classic Bertans explosion. Efficient 3-point shooting is his upide-wheelhouse, so this is what you can expect when he's finding the bucket. Excellent value so far coming from a mostly late-round flier pick.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Christian Wood played 12 minutes on Friday, posting 11 points, six rebounds, four blocks, one assist, one steal and one three-pointer.

    Wood was extremely productive on a per-minute basis as he lead a trio of strong bench performances for the Pistons. Derrick Rose played 18 minutes and added 11 points, three triples, two assists, one rebound, one steal and a block. Markieff Morris produced 13 points, three rebounds and two triples.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk was a solid contributor off the Hornets' bench on Friday, tallying 19 points (7-of-10 shooting), two rebounds, two assists, three 3s and one steal.

    Monk has been on-and-off this season, but mostly "on" as of late. He's worth streaming if you need help in points and threes but can be held in 14-team leagues or deeper.

  • Jabari Parker
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Jabari Parker provided 14 points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a triple across 21 minutes in Friday's loss to the Pistons.

    Parker shot the ball well from the field (5-for-10), but with the blowout natrue of thsi game it was mostly a rest game for Parker. Continue to keep him in your lineups, especially with John Collins out.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham played well in Friday's loss to the Wizards, recording 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting with six rebounds, seven assists, three treys, two steals and one block.

    Graham is legit. His rise in fantasy is no fluke and has settled into a reliable floor with a still-uncharted ceiling, making him one of the hottest FA adds of the season so far.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young shot an abysmal 3-for-12 on Friday night, but was able to salvage the rest of his line with eight assists, six rebounds, one steal and a three as the Hawks fell 103-128 to the Pistons on Friday.

    It wasn't Young's night – who also had five turnovers in Friday's game. Still, his ability to provide complementary production was huge for keeping his fantasy line productive.

  • Miles Bridges
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges caught fire on Friday, erupting for a career-high 31 points on 12-of-21 shooting with eight rebounds, three triples and three steals.

    Bridges has not delivered to-date on his draft-day ADP. Tonight is a big step in the right direction. PJ Washington (seven points, seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks) has stolen some of his thunder, but it appears that Bridges' built up static value is still intact.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter scored 18 points on 7-for-17 shooting on Friday night, adding four assists, two rebounds, one triple and one block in a team-high 35 minutes.

    The Hawks got blown out on Friday, but it was a good chance for Hunter – who is starting to string good performances together – to keep his rhythm going. DeAndre' Bembry also logged 35 minutes and put up a massive 22 points, six assists, four rebounds four triples and four steals.
