Brandon Clarke put forth a strong effort in Friday's home victory over the Cavs, chipping in 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting to go with two rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes.
Clarke went through a little lull at the start of January but has been solid through the last week, so hopefully you were able to buy low. The rookie has been outstanding, and his current top-100/80 standing in 8/9-cat leagues is buoyed by an elite .635 mark from the field. Fellow rookie Ja Morant was also solid in this one, posting 16 points, five rebounds, eight assists, three steals and a block. Big multi-cat lines are becoming a very regular occurrence there.

Brandon Clarke (right thumb soreness) came off the bench for 24 minutes, hitting 6-of-7 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws for 14 points to go with seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in a win over the Rockets on Tuesday.
Clarke has been pretty consistent this season, though his ceiling remains capped due to the entrenched starting frontcourt. There's a realistic chance that Clarke starts nabbing more defensive stats like he did in college as the season goes on, though. So, make sure you hold him or consider acquiring him in case he's being underrated. The starting bigs were solid as well with Jaren Jackson Jr. puting up 15 points, two rebounds, one assist, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes and Jonas Valanciunas going for 19 points, six boards, two dimes and a block in 28 minutes.

Brandon Clarke (right thumb soreness) will play in Tuesday's game against the Rockets.
Clarke is sitting inside the top-80/105 in 9/8 cat leagues this season at a relatively modest 21.2 minutes per game. If an injury were to occur to Jaren Jackson Jr. or Jonas Valanciunas, Clarke could show off season-altering upside.

Brandon Clarke (right thumb soreness) is questionable for Tuesday's game.
Clarke has provided 12.2 points and 5.8 rebounds in only 21.2 minutes per game this season. Solomon Hill is likely to move up in the rotation should Clarke be unavailable.

Brandon Clarke scored 10 points (3-for-5), grabbed nine rebounds, dished four assists, swatted two shots and swiped one steal in Friday's win over the Spurs.
Clarke led the Grizzlies in bench minutes with 23 and posted a well-rounded line even hitting all four of his freebies. The only other bench player to make an impact was De'Anthony Melton who finished with 13 points, six assists, four rebounds, a triple and a block.

Brandon Clarke finished Saturday's win with eight points and six rebounds in 18 minutes.
Clarke remains a middle-round option and this makes two straight quiet games, so the buy-low window has been propped open.

Brandon Clarke was impressive during Sunday's victory over the Hornets, going for 18 points (7-of-12 FG), four rebounds, three assists, three blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer.
Clarke packed this line over 25 minutes of action and has begun to deliver blocks and 3-pointers with more regularity over the last three games. After the underappreciated rookie's next quiet game, a buy-low offer would be a smart move.

Jonas Valanciunas held his own against the Nuggets on Saturday, producing 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting with two 3s, 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in 24 minutes.
Not a bad line for Valanciunas' 24 minutes on the floor. We saw some Brandon Clarke share the floor with Jaren Jackson Jr. tonight with Clarke chipping in 15 points (6-of-8 shooting) with two rebounds, five assists and one block.

Brandon Clarke finished Thursday's win with 13 points on 5-of-6 from the field to go with four rebounds, two assists, a steal, two blocks and a pair of 3-pointers.
Clarke did his damage in 19 minutes and continues to cruise with middle-round value, thanks largely to his outstanding .642 mark from the field. The rookie should see an increase on his 21.4 mpg as the season goes on and the Grizzlies pump the brakes on their vets, so he's going to be a fun player to rock with down the stretch.

Brandon Clarke scored 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting with four rebounds and one assist on Monday.
Clarke did not play up to his usual standards, but we'll just mark this up as an off night. He was caught in the crossfire of a blowout.

Jonas Valanciunas (right foot soreness) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Spurs.
Foot injuries have plagued Valanciunas in the past and it erupted when he was just starting to get things goings. The Grizzlies opted to keep Brandon Clarkes in a bench role in the last game JV missed, but he's going to stand to benefit with increased minutes and usage.

Jonas Valanciunas (right foot soreness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Kings.
Just when Valanciunas looked like he was getting into a good rhythm. Brandon Clarke will most likely draw the start in place for Valanciunas and becomes a viable DFS option. Clarke has already been a viable season-long option with JV healthy and vaults himself into top-50 territory while he's out.

Brandon Clarke set a career-high with 27 points on Wednesday night, shooting 13-of-19 from the field and adding seven rebounds and an assist in 25 minutes.
Clarke just set his previous career-best on Saturday, and hopefully he can outdo himself once a week going forward. The rookie is already a top-90/70 guy on the season and should come into even more playing time as the Grizzlies play out their season, so there's no excuse for him to be on waivers in any format. Clarke is a must-start player.

Brandon Clarke logged 26 minutes on Monday, scoring 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting while adding nine rebounds, one assist and a block.
Clarke continues to play limited minutes which is a bit frustrating, but he's killing it in those precious moments. He's one of the smartest defenders on the team and is an ideal roll man to pair with Ja Morant. He's worth holding onto in standard leagues as the production should increase as the season goes on.

Brandon Clarke was fantastic in 24 minutes off the bench in the Grizzlies' 128-111 win over the Wizards on Saturday, exploding for a career-high 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting.
Clarke also grabbed four rebounds and hit a 3-pointer to round out his line for the night. Clarke is leading all rookies with 69.4 true shooting percentage (TS%), making him a Roto darling this early in his career.
