The Lakers have officially announced the signings of Jared Dudley and Troy Daniels.
Both players will slot in at the end of the Lakers' bench, with Dudley giving them some minutes as a stretch four and Daniels operating as a microwave scorer and floor-spacer when the team needs some extra shooting. There's no fantasy value to be found here.

Joe Ingles played a hefty 34 minutes off the bench on Monday, but struggled with his shot as he went 4-of-12 from the field to finish with 12 points, eight rebounds, three treys and five dimes.
Ingles' struggles off the bench continue to plague him, but believe it or not, tonight's line has been one of the more pleasant ones from a fantasy perspective. He's still adjusting to his new role as a facilitator off the bench and should find some better form eventually.
November 19, 2019, 12:30 amDamian LillardPG, Portland Trail Blazers
Damian Lillard couldn't get his shot to fall in Monday's blowout loss to the Rockets, finishing wth 13 points (4-of-15 shooting), 11 assists, six rebounds and four assists in 35 minutes.
The shooting struggles have been a part of Lillard's game all season, but that hasn't stopped him from producing at a top-5 level. He'll likely bounce back in his next one.
November 19, 2019, 12:28 amRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert collected 14 rebounds to go with his 16 points (5-of-8 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs), one assist, one steal and one block in a 112-102 loss to the Wolves on Monday.
He had his hands full, trying to contain a younger and more athletic Karl-Anthony Towns. Considering that, Gobert still managed to post a well-rounded fantasy line. He's not as impressive and imposing as he was a few seasons ago, but he stays relevant as a source of rebounds and defensive stats.
November 19, 2019, 12:26 amDejounte MurrayPG, San Antonio Spurs
Dejounte Murray didn't do much in the Spurs' 110-117 loss against the Mavericks on Monday night, finishing his night with eight points, fve rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes.
The minutes restrctions that have been placed on Murray should be coming off soon, and frankly the Spurs are in dire need of that with their sluugish start to the year. The guard play behind him has been suspect throughout the year, and was not much better tonight. Expect Murray to be better than this moving forward.
November 19, 2019, 12:25 amBojan BogdanovicSF, Utah Jazz
Bojan Bogdanovic tallied a team-high 18 points on 7-of-17 shooting Monday's loss to the Wolves, adding six rebounds, three treys and two assists in 31 minutes.
Bogdanovic's shooting may see some fluctuation on a game-to-game basis, but at an overall .455 clip from the field on the season, we're not going to complain too much. He continues to be a steady source of points, threes and serviceable peripherals this season.
November 19, 2019, 12:18 amLaMarcus AldridgePF, San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge was just okay in a close loss against the Mavericks on Monday, finishing his night with 16 points (7-of-14 shooting) to go with nine rebounds, two assists, and one block in 35 minutes.
Aldridge continues to alternate great games with so-so ones, and while that's perfectly fine in roto settings and get a little frustrating in head-to-head. Regardless, the big man seems locked into another season of producing at a top-40 rate, and should continue to be plugged into all lineups.
November 19, 2019, 12:06 amDeMar DeRozanSG, San Antonio Spurs
DeMar DeRozan scored a season-high 36 points in Monday's loss against the Mavericks, adding eight rebounds, four assists and a steal in 34 minutes.
DeRozan badly needed a game like this to help jump-start what has been a lackluster beginning to his fantasy season. Though the issues him with lie more in his diminishing counting stats than it does his scroing output, a game where he looked sharp like this one could hopefully lead to better all-around performances down the road.
November 19, 2019, 12:04 amRussell WestbrookPG, Houston Rockets
Russell Westbrook (rest) returned to action on Monday and triple-doubled for the first time in November in a big win over the Blazers, putting up 28 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
Westbrook's production is noticeably down as many predicted would happen when he joined the Rockets. But overall, he's still a star in four categories and a big detriment in three.
November 18, 2019, 11:57 pmDorian Finney-SmithSF, Dallas Mavericks
Dorian Finney-Smith scored a career-high 22 points in Monday's 117-110 win over the Spurs, adding in five rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.
It was easily his best game of the season and it's not particularly close. There was nothing in the form of extended usage due to a missing player or increase in drawn-up plays to explain this performance, so consider it more as a one-off type of deal than signs of things to come for DFS.
November 18, 2019, 11:56 pmClint CapelaC, Houston Rockets
Clint Capela returned from a two-game absence and grabbed exactly 20 rebounds for the fourth straight game on Monday in a 132-108 win over the Blazers.
Capela also stuffed the stat sheet with 22 points on 10-of-17 shooting, four blocks and a steal in his 35 minutes. The only concern with Capela is his free throw shooting which improved to 45.5 percent with tonight's 2-of-3 shooting from the line. He doesn't attempt too many freebies, so it's not getting in the way of Capela reaching near-elite center status.
