  • 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.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len played 15 minutes off the bench on Friday adding three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block as the Hawks got blown out by the Pistons.

    Len was the only Hawks bench player to score in double digits in what was a rough showing for this team. Damian Jones started ahead of Len who posted 13 points, four rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes.

  • Michael Carter-Williams
    PG, Orlando Magic

    The Magic will be without Michael Carter-Williams for Saturday's game with a hip injury.

    MCW has gotten an MRI, which while enouraging, has him still out for a few more games at least. If you're in a deep league and have been holding onto him, it might be time to move on.
