After weeks of feeling despondent after an All-Star snub and growing frustrated with losses, Bradley Beal is now finding beauty in the ashes of the Wizards’ season.
Beal accomplished a franchise milestone on Sunday as he became the only player in team history to score 25 or more points in 18 straight games, while he also became only the sixth player in NBA history to compile 50 or more points on consecutive nights earlier this season. “Just having fun, honestly,” Beal said Sunday. “I’m not thinking about anything. I want to go out there and win." The Wizards are at the tail end of a transition year and it’s great to see Beal able to understand and accept his place in it. Fantasy owners meanwhile, can only hope that he continues to play with the same intensity until the end of the season.

Bradley Beal had his way with the Warriors on Sunday, going for 34 points (7-of-8 FT), seven 3-pointers, eight assists and five steals.
Instead of going for 40 or 50 points, Beal mixed it up and gave his owners five steals on Sunday. Either way, Beal is in beast mode right now and is playing his best basketball of the season. If he can keep this up he'll hit the first-round value you drafted him for. He's also got a juicy back-to-back set against the Kings and Blazers on Tuesday and Wednesday to look forward to. Sit back and enjoy.

Bradley Beal came out in force on Friday, leading the Wizards with 42 points on 17-of-33 shooting (six 3s) in 41 minutes.
Beal is an iron man and is playing his heart out, trying to keep the Wizards' playoff hopes alive. He also added five boards, 10 assists and two steals to round out his line for the night. He's a top-12 value guy as long as he's trying will his team into the post-season.

Bradley Beal led the Wizards to a 106-110 victory over the Nets on Wednesday night, finishing with 30 points (11-24 FG, 4-9 3PT), five rebounds, five assists and three steals.
Beal has now scored 30 or more points in five of his last six games. He is looking a lot like the first-round value that many people hoped for him to be at the start of the season. It took a little bit of time to find his groove, but he is currently sitting as a top-25 player on the season.

Bradley Beal poured in 55 points one day after scoring 53 in a 134-137 overtime loss to the Bucks on Monday, adding two rebounds, three assist and eight triples in 41 minutes.
Beal was on fire, especially in crunch time, shooting 19-of-33 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line for the game. It seems pretty clear that we're at the point of the season where Beal is going to try to will the Wizards into relevance. He pointed out that he was trying to send a message to the Wizards' possible first-round opponent. After some disappointing production earlier this season, Beal is currently putting up first-round value over the last month.

Bradley Beal exploded for a career-high 53 points (15-of-27 FG, 18-of-20 FT) on Sunday vs. the Bulls, but it was not enough as the Wizards fell 117-126.
With the Wizards on the fringes of the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference Beal has to be frustrated that they came out of the break with losses to the Bulls tonight and Cavs on Friday. He rounded out this performance with five 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and seven turnovers. Beal is plenty motivated to deliver first-round value as long as he is active and should help plenty of fantasy squads down the stretch.

Bradley Beal had a rough outing in Friday's loss to the Cavs, finishing the night with 26 points on 9-of-28 shooting, adding three rebounds, one assist, one trey and three steals with six turnovers.
The Cavs clamped down on Beal and he struggled to carry the Wizards to victory. Not for a lack of trying though, going 1-for-10 from downtown. Beal will need more impact from his supporting cast if the Wizards are going to sneak into the playoffs. Until they're mathematically out of the running, expect Beal to play hard and bring early-round value more often than not.

Bradley Beal did his thing on Wednesday as he led the Wizards to a 114-96 stomp of the Knicks, powering his team with 30 points on 11-of-23 shooting from the field and 6-of-7 shooting at the line.
Beal is just killing it lately as the Wizards chase the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. He's going to be giving it his all to make a run for that playoff berth, which translates to a string of big-time lines from here on out, or until they're mathematically unable to qualify.

Bradley Beal led the Wizards to a home win over the Bulls on Tuesday with 30 points on 12-of-23 shooting, four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
Beal currently ranks 11th over the past month in both 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. And the Wizards are sitting in the 9th spot in the Eastern Conference, so there's still plenty of motivation for the Wizards to let Beal play as often as possible after the break.

Bradley Beal put in a respectable performance in defeat against the Grizzlies on Sunday, going for 26 points (10-of-25 FG), four rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.
Beal looks to be settling down from the All-Star game snub and is no longer dropping eye-popping numbers, but we'll gladly take the early-round production. He is motivated and pumping in big lines again, and the shutdown risk is thankfully no longer considered to be a large factor. Shabazz Napier's second game with the Wizards featured six points (0-of-7 FG) and six assists over 20 minutes. Napier will still have some deep league value as he is getting plenty of touches in his new role.

Bradley Beal was ballin' on Friday night, spearheading the Wizards' offense with 29 points on 11-of-28 shooting, adding five rebounds, eight dimes, three triples and one steal in 39 minutes.
Beal is just amazing. He made a three-foot layup with 0.2 seconds left in regulation to seal the deal in this win. He's committed to play and play hard, so those shutdown fears, while legit, are simply a risk owners will have to bear in exchange for his crazy production. Ride him with confidence ROS.

Bradley Beal popped off in Monday's 117-125 loss to the Warriors, scoring a game-high 43 points on 15-of-30 shooting while adding two rebounds, six assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.
Beal went a perfect 10-for-10 at the line and was the only Wizards starter to have a positive plus-minus. He's going to continue to put up gaudy stat lines as the Wizards are actually within striking distance of the playoffs and he's a one man offensive machine. The All-Star snub has definitely had Beal playing with an extra chip on his shoulder and owners aren't complaining.

Bradley Beal's hard work paid off on Saturday as his game-high 34 points (11-of-23 FGs, 10-of-15 FTs) propelled his Wizards past the Nets 113-107.
Beal's poor showing at the line was unlike him, but he did manage to drop a monster line with six boards, two assists, two triples, three steals and three blocks in 36 minutes. He's a true superstar and his effort set the context for his team's output in this victory. He's a top-10 play ROS, don't be too afraid of a shutdown as he's definitely worth the risk.

Bradley Beal dominated in Thursday's 121-107 win over the Hornets with 39 points on 7-of-16 shooting while adding nine rebounds, nine assists, a block and six 3-pointers.
Beal carried the Wizards to a win tonight and missed a triple-double by one rebound and one assist. There's no doubt that he's angry about being snubbed as an All-Star, but titles won't stop him from putting up absurd numbers on a nightly basis.

Bradley Beal did his best to carry the Wizards on Tuesday on the shoulders of his 47-point effort on 13-of-31 shooting, addign six assists, four 3s, one steal and one block.
Beal got outdueled by Khris Middleton, who popped out a career-best 51 points. Still, Beal appears to be churning out big games night in and night out. As long as he's not shut down by his team, Beal is a lock for top-10 value at this rate.
