Brook Lopez scored 16 points and blocked four shots in Thursday's win against the Celtics.
It's always a treat when Lopez has as many 3-pointers as rebounds as he had three of each on this chilly evening in Milwaukee. The blocked shots are the main focus for Lopez and that should drive Lopez to another top-50 season.

Brook Lopez filled the stat sheet on Wednesday, accumulating 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.
Lopez has been able to hover around the top-50 by collecting blocks and hitting threes. Its not the prettiest fantasy game, but it's effective.

Brook Lopez scored 10 points in Saturday's win over the Spurs, chipping in six rebounds, one 3-pointer and seven blocked shots.
Over the past five games Lopez has average just over four blocked shots a game. Due to the normal scarcity of blocks in fantasy this has garnered him fourth-round value even with a consistent lack of production in any other category. Blocks are what you expect to get out of him and blocks are what owners are receiving. Anything else is a bonus.

LaMarcus Aldridge double-doubled in Saturday's loss to the Bucks, scoring 16 points (5-of-14), 10 rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers.
Aldridge had a difficult night in the post as he was smothered by the Lopez twins in this one. He was inefficient from the field, going 5-of-14, and abandoned his normal mid-range game to take a season-high seven 3-pointers. Besides the poor shooting he also failed to register a block further dampening this game for his fantasy owners. Unfortunately the Spurs will see the Bucks again on Monday so Aldridge has time to reset before the match-up.
December 29, 2019, 12:57 amRobin LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Robin Lopez finished Saturday's home win with 17 points, three rebounds and a 3-pointer on 7-of-8 shooting in 23 minutes of action.
Lopez got some extra run in this one with Giannis Antetokounmpo out, though he typically doesn't exceed 20 minutes outside of blowout situations otherwise. Not to be outdone, brother Brook had three steals and three blocks to make up for a 5-of-16 shooting night with no 3-pointers. BroLo is the bro to know for fantasy managers, but it's clear that Robin has some low-end streaming appeal for as long as Antetokounmpo is out.

Brook Lopez stayed productive on Friday, chipping in with 19 points (8-of-14 shooting), three triples, two rebounds, five dimes and three blocks.
Lopez has been trending up recently, producing top-40 value in 9-cat over the last two weeks. Consider his buy-low window officially nailed shut after this game.
December 22, 2019, 10:17 pmBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez had another strong effort with 17 points (6-of-11 FG), eight rebounds, three 3-pointers and two blocks versus the Pacers on Sunday.
The turnaround is well underway for Lopez now. Assuming you held out during the downturn, well done riding with the punches as Brook's 3-pointers start dropping and the blocks start racking up. Lopez's unique style leads to a streaky type of production, but it is still a potent mid-round formula.
December 21, 2019, 10:53 pmBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez rejected seven shots on Saturday and added 14 points, seven rebounds and four threes in 27 minutes.
Lopez is a top-50 player after tonight's block party and his value is built on his 2.4 blocks and 1.4 threes per game. He was slumping recently but had three blocks on Thursday and could be starting a hot stretch. The buy-low window has closed for Lopez after tonight's game.
December 19, 2019, 10:43 pmBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez returned to form on Thursday, scoring 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting while adding four rebounds, two assists, four steals and three blocks.
Lopez had been awful over the last two weeks, sitting outside of the top-200 in value, but he was never going to be that bad. He was able to get it going tonight and was a prime buy-low candidate heading into this game.
December 16, 2019, 11:38 pmKhris MiddletonSF, Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton had a quiet game, providing just nine points (4-of-12 FGs), six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes in a home loss to the Mavs on Monday.
The Bucks win streak is over, and Middleton and Brook Lopez (three points on 1-of-8 FGs, five rebounds, two assists) putting up poor games was a big part of the problem. Each player should bounce back, but it's possible that the Bucks aren't quite as efficient without Eric Bledsoe (right fibula avulsion fracture).
December 13, 2019, 11:10 pmBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez finished with 10 points (4-for-8 shooting), 10 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a triple in Friday's win over the Grizzlies.
Lopez scored in double figures for the first time in five games on Friday, but still continued to produce quality blocks production. Look for his shot to come back around soon and he should finish in the top-75 range this season.
December 12, 2019, 12:15 amBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez was slowed by a bit of foul trouble on Wednesday and as a result was limited to nine points on 3-of-10 shooting with five rebounds, three assists, two treys and one block.
Lopez has been off lately, failing to score in double figures in five straight games now. He's still a quality stretch five by the league's standards and is a buy-low target at the moment.
December 6, 2019, 10:59 pmBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez's shot was errant on Friday, as he went 2-of-12 from the field and came up empty from deep to finish with six points in 25 minutes.
The Bucks steamrolled the Clippers so there's not too much to get worked up about, and he at least provided three blocks. His minutes have been down following a two-game absence but there's not much to worry about with BroLo.

Brook Lopez (back soreness) returned to action for the Bucks on Wednesday and produced five points, six rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal and three blocks in 18 minutes.
Lopez played with a minutes cap but it didn't matter too much as the Bucks dispatched with the Pistons with ease. He should see those minutes and subsequently, his production ramp up in the coming games.
December 4, 2019, 5:34 pmBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez (back soreness) will play on Wednesday against the Pistons.
After sitting out the last two games, Lopez will likely return to the starting lineup and will continue to put up consistent value worthy of all fantasy leagues. The Pistons and Bucks both played on Tuesday so Lopez could be fresher than most players on the court on Wednesday. He could be an interesting DFS candidate depending on his price tag.
