November 17, 2018, 12:07 amBrook Lopez - C - Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez put in a solid 30 minutes for the Bucks in their 104-123 win over the Bulls on Friday with the big man recording 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with four treys, five boards and two blocks.
This was a nice bounce-back game from BroLo after his ho-hum six-point production against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. He's been seeing ups and downs all season but can be counted on for threes and blocks while committing 0.7 turnovers per game.
November 17, 2018, 12:03 amKhris Middleton - F - Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton was fantastic in Friday's win over the Bulls as he tallied 23 points, 10 boards, eight dimes, two treys and two steals.
Just call him Khris "consistent" Middleton right now as he's been one of the more stable assets in fantasy this season, who's also providing reliable top-25 value. Keep rolling with him and enjoy the ride for the rest of the season.
November 17, 2018, 12:00 amEric Bledsoe - G - Milwaukee Bucks
Eric Bledsoe returned to form on Friday as he posted 25 points on 10-of-13 shooting with four rebounds, six dimes, three triples, three steals and one blocked shot.
This is vintage Bledsoe at its finest and the buy-low window for him over the last few games just slammed shut. He's a top-50 guy who's steadily making his way up the rankings with a ceiling somewhere in the top-30.
November 16, 2018, 11:57 pmGiannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo worked the glass on Friday as he collected 13 boards which came with 23 points, two 3-pointers, four dimes and three blocks.
The Greek Freak dropped a typical line by his standards, with the 2-for-4 shooting from downtown as a bonus. He missed four of his nine attempts from the line. For the season, his free throw shooting accuracy is the only thorn in the side of his fantasy ceiling.
November 16, 2018, 12:34 pmJohn Henson - F - Milwaukee Bucks
John Henson will miss at least 12 weeks with a torn ligament in his left wrist as of Friday's update.
It's time for Thon Maker, people. This will put Henson out until at least mid-February, so we could see an unsightly amount of Maker and a Bucks team that might struggle against bigger squads. Keep an eye on Maker but there probably isn't much there for now.

November 16, 2018, 12:22 pmDonte DiVincenzo - G - Milwaukee Bucks
Donte DiVincenzo suffered a quad strain in Wednesday's game and he will be held out for the next three contests.
DiVincenzo dealt with a quad injury earlier in the season and has been up and down throughout. He isn't a big fantasy factor at this point in under 20 minutes per contest, and his de facto role replacement in Tony Snell is even less of a factor.

November 16, 2018, 12:18 pmJohn Henson - F - Milwaukee Bucks
Per a report on Friday, John Henson will undergo wrist surgery and is out indefinitely.
This is a bigger blow to the Bucks rotation and center depth more than it is for fantasy purposes. Henson has been a useful fantasy option in the past because of his shot-blocking prowess. With Brook Lopez playing well, Henson just hadn't gotten the run to be successful (13.5 minutes per game). Ersan Ilyasova and Thon Maker are probably the beneficiaries for now.

November 14, 2018, 11:10 pmMalcolm Brogdon - G - Milwaukee Bucks
Malcolm Brogdon was limited to scoring eight points on 4-of-11 shooting with five boards and one blocked shot in Wednesday's loss to the Grizzlies.
This was just a bit of regression coming from the former Rookie-of-the-Year awardee. Brogdon had scored 20 points or more in his last three games prior to this one, so give him a pass and deploy him as you normally would.
November 14, 2018, 11:05 pmPat Connaughton - G - Milwaukee Bucks
Pat Connaughton led all Bucks reserves with 27 minutes on Wednesday and did not disappoint as he posted 16 points, six boards, two assists, two 3-pointers and two steals.
Connaughton ended up being the biggest beneficiary of Donte DiVincenzo (knee) missing most of the game. Connaughton is worth a look in deep leagues as the guard has scored in double figures in three of his last five games.
November 14, 2018, 11:02 pmBrook Lopez - C - Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez fell back to Earth in Wednesday's 116-113 loss to the Grizzlies as the big man was limited to contributing just six points, two rebounds, three assists and two triples.
This was a bit of a letdown considering this game followed a career-high (eight treys) night on Sunday. It's just fluctuation folks, no need to worry. Lopez has had sharp spikes and drops but is averaging out nicely with top-35 value. Just don't judge his numbers on game-to-game basis and you'll see that he's a value guy every week.
November 14, 2018, 10:57 pmKhris Middleton - F - Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton had some efficient shooting on Wednesday as he made 8-of-16 shots from the field and 7-of-7 shots from the line, en route to his 25 points, five rebounds, three dimes and two 3-pointers.
Middleton is simply a pillar of reliability right now, clocking in with top-25 value in 9-cat on the season. Owners can enjoy the ride as Middleton helps carry their teams to wins in fantasy in 2018-19.
November 14, 2018, 10:53 pmGiannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo dropped a game-high 31 points for the Bucks on Wednesday and added nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks.
Giannis' big game may not have gotten the Bucks a win but he did do some solid work at the free throw line, going 11-for-12 there tonight. It's a nice recovery from his 0-for-5 shooting from there on Sunday. He's still shooting just .663 from the stripe, limiting his ability to crack fantasy's top-10 so far this season.
November 14, 2018, 9:08 pmDonte DiVincenzo - G - Milwaukee Bucks
Donte DiVincenzo is experiencing left knee soreness and will not return to Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.
DiVincenzo can't catch a break. He's just getting his legs back after dealing with a quad injury early in November. This should translate into a bit more minutes for Tony Snell, who really isn't worth picking up just yet.

November 11, 2018, 11:12 pmKhris Middleton - F - Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton played a solid game on Sunday with 21 points, five boards, three triples and two assists against the Nuggets.
Middleton is averaging over three triples per game thus far in the season. We expect him to settle somewhere beneath that average before the season closes. Despite the expected decrease Middleton looks poised to challenge for a top-24 ranking all season long.
November 11, 2018, 11:08 pmGiannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo almost triple-doubled on Sunday against the Nuggets with 22 points, nine boards and eight assists, adding two steals and a block for good measure.
Giannis missed all five of his free throws tonight and he's almost 10 percent off of last season numbers from the line. Despite some of these struggles Giannis is still a top-15 option with plenty of room for upside. If you're frustrated with the Greek Freak feel free to send out some offers, we're sure that someone will take you up on an offer.
