November 17, 2018, 8:57 pmAllen Crabbe - G/F - Brooklyn Nets
Allen Crabbe found his shot on Saturday and tallied 15 points (3-of-6 from deep), with four rebounds and one assist.
Crabbe was struggling prior to this solid outing, so it's good to see him light it up from downtown. He's going to be one the players to step up in the wake of Caris LeVert's injury making him worth an add in 14-team leagues or deeper.
November 17, 2018, 8:52 pmSpencer Dinwiddie - G - Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie had an off night on Saturday as he went 3-for-16 from the field to finish the night with 11 points, four rebounds, seven dimes and one triple as the Nets fell to the Clippers 127-119.
Dinwiddie has been hot since Caris LeVert (ankle) went down, so we can give a pass and just call this an off night. It also did not help his cause that D'Angelo Russell had a stellar performance on offense. Deploy Dinwiddie as you normally would without hesitation.
November 17, 2018, 8:48 pmRondae Hollis-Jefferson - F - Brooklyn Nets
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson returned from a one-game absence on Saturday and posted eight points, four rebounds and one steal in 12 minutes off the bench.
He was questionable coming into this game and probably just played through it and was likely on a minutes limit to boot. RHJ has had his fair share of missed games due to injuries last season but when healthy has shown that he can deliver top-100 value, making him a worthwhile stash in standard leagues.
November 17, 2018, 8:45 pmD'Angelo Russell - G - Brooklyn Nets
D'Angelo Russell had himself a great game against the Clippers on Saturday, recording 23 points, 10 dimes, three rebounds, five treys, two steals and one blocked shot.
This is arguably one of his best games of the season. It paints a good picture as to what his fantasy ceiling looks like. However, until he finds a way to be productive on a more consistent basis, Russell's upside stays capped. That said, he's someone to watch closely post-Caris-LeVert injury.
November 17, 2018, 8:41 pmJarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets
Jarrett Allen flashed some of his offensive moves on Saturday as he led the Nets in scoring with 24 points, 11 boards, two assists and one blocked shot.
Allen has been more of a blocks specialist so far this season but this game shows that he can throw up points on the box scores when given the right matchup. Allen needs more confidence in order to take his game to the next level and hopefully a game like this one, where he set a new career-high in points, will nudge him in the right direction.
November 17, 2018, 4:20 pmRondae Hollis-Jefferson - F - Brooklyn Nets
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) will play on Saturday against the Clippers.
Hollis-Jefferson sat out Friday's game after spraining his ankle on Wednesday and was originally questionable for this one. He'll step into 20-plus mpg off the bench but it shouldn't be long before he supplants Jared Dudley in the starting lineup. We're watching to see how he and DeMarre Carroll split minutes tonight.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game.
Hollis-Jefferson injured his ankle on Wednesday and sat out Friday. DeMarre Carroll has seen his minutes increase as a result, but it's tough to forecast his outlook until we see what type of minutes both he and RHJ get at full health. Hollis-Jefferson should be owned in all formats despite his slow start to the year.

November 16, 2018, 9:45 pmDeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets
DeMarre Carroll scored 11 points (1-of-5 from distance) to go with six rebounds and two assists in Friday’s defeat of the Wizards.
Carroll did his damage in 24 minutes and while we don’t see him reaching his standard-league value from last season, he might be a deep-league stream if Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) has to miss any more games. Joe Harris had an off-game with just nine points, five boards and a steal in 25 minutes.
November 16, 2018, 9:41 pm- G - Brooklyn Nets
D’Angelo Russell scored 24 points (one 3) and added six assists, three rebounds and two steals in Friday’s win over the home Wizards.
DAR added four turnovers but shot it pretty well for him (8-of-16 from the field, 6-of-8 from the line). As usual, it’s his poor efficiency that keeps him around the top-80/100 in 8/9-cat. If you’re looking to improve your efficiency cats a few more high scoring games from Russell might open up a nice sell-high window.
November 16, 2018, 9:35 pmSpencer Dinwiddie - G - Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie started the game off hot and didn't cool off on his way to 25 points, three 3s, eight assists, four rebounds and three steals in Friday's road win over the Wizards.
Dinwiddie continues to get major minutes off the bench (31 tonight) and is a must-own player with Caris LeVert (foot) out for several months at least.
November 16, 2018, 9:32 pmJarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets
Jarrett Allen played 32 minutes in his first game back from illness and put up 16 points, 12 rebounds, two blocks, a steal and no turnovers in Friday's win over the Wizards.
Aside from playing so many minutes against a bulkier Dwight Howard before fouling out, the most encouraging sign is that Allen hit 6-of-8 of his free throws. His poor shooting from the line (60.2 percent on the season) is the only thing holding his value outside the top-50 in 9-cat.
November 16, 2018, 5:16 pmRondae Hollis-Jefferson - F - Brooklyn Nets
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards.
RHJ had to leave Wednesday’s game with the ankle sprain but ended up returning so there must have been some swelling after the game. Friday is the first game of a back-to-back set, so he might make it back for Saturday’s game. DeMarre Carroll would be the obvious guy to benefit though Allen Crabbe is also in play.

Jarrett Allen (illness) will play on Friday vs. the Wizards.
Allen took a little longer than usual to recover from his illness and will return to a tough matchup against Dwight Howard. Allen is a top-65 play and we’re assuming he’ll get his free throw percentage closer to last year’s which would do would do wonders for his 9-cat value. Even with Allen playing, Ed Davis should still get his regular run.

November 15, 2018, 4:01 pmJarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets
Jarrett Allen is being listed as questionable ahead of Friday's game.
Allen has missed two straight games because of an illness. We've seen both Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Ed Davis fill in at center but hopefully that's made moot by Allen's return.
