• Blake Griffin scored 27 points with 12 boards, seven assists, four triples and a steal on Sunday to secure a 112-103 victory in New Orleans.

    Griffin continues to be a 6-category monster (second round talent) when you ignore steals and blocks. Unfortunately Griffin falls to a top-40 valuation in 8-cat leagues once we add in the defensive stats and that’s unlikely to change any time soon.

  • 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 Hawks 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.

  • Brandon Knight
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Brandon Knight (sprained right ankle) is available to play in Friday's game.

    Knight has not been fantasy-relevant outside of the deepest of leagues.

  • Danuel House
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Danuel House (shoulder) has been ruled out for Friday's game but is probable to return on Sunday.

    He's missing another game with a sore left shoulder but the advanced probability of a Sunday return is an encouraging sign. Hang onto House. He's been killing it this season with his multi-cat production.

  • Nerlens Noel
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Nerlens Noel is sick and will not play vs. the Lakers on Friday.

    Noel has been playing well as of late, so he's worth holding onto, especially considering this is a non-injury-related DNP.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (shoulder) will start on Friday vs. the Thunder.

    AD is good to go, which is a nice upgrade from his probable status prior to this update. He should feast on the young and rebuilding Thunder tonight. Expect a monster line.
