Chris Paul had himself a fantastic revenge-game in Monday's 112-107 win over the Rockets, leading the Thunder to victory with 28 points (9-of-18 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs) and a full stat line.
CP3 stuffed the stat sheet, adding eight rebounds, four 3s, three assists, two steals and one block in 33 minutes to round out his line for the night. Yes, the three dimes were sub-par, but we're willing to look past it given his monster line. He's playing like 25-year-old lately and smashing his ADP. If you're wary of his injury-prone history, now would be a nice time to sell-high. Dennis Schroder was also effective in this one, chipping in 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting with five rebounds, four assists and three treys.

Chris Paul was crazy-efficient in Saturday's win over the Blazers, turning back the clock for a vintage performance highlighted by 30 points on 11-of-15 shooting from the field and 5-of-5 from the line.
CP3 also added four rebounds, seven assists, three triples and just one turnover in 28 minutes of action. He is at risk of being traded before the deadline, but a regression on another team would be minor. As always, Paul's biggest risk is his ability (or inability) to stay healthy.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put up another gem on Wednesday, popping off for 21 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field and 7-of-7 from the line with six rebounds, six assists, two threes, three steals and one block.
SGA is on a rocket soaring straight up the rankings with his recent play. Is it sustainable? Yes, more than likely. This is playing alongside Chris Paul, who had a 16-point, 11-assist, four-steal double-double tonight. SGA should crackle the skies with thunderous numbers, should CP3 ever get moved. He's going to be a post-ASB darling.

Chris Paul scored 10 points on 5-of-15 shooting with four rebounds, three assists and a steal on Monday.
Paul struggled to get anything going around the hoop and missed all four of his 3-point attempts which led to one of his worst performances in recent memory. He's been too good lately to worry about though.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 24 points in Saturday's 110-125 loss to the Lakers, finishing with eight rebounds, a steal and a block.
SGA shot the ball decently from the field, converting 8-of-17, but even better from the charity stripe, converting 7-of-7. The eight rebounds were a nice touch to go along with a steal and block, though an assist or two would have been nice. Regardless, SGA continues to provide value to fantasy owners and should see his assists increase as he continues to find his role next to ball-centric guards, Chris Paul and Dennis Schroder.

Chris Paul played a solid game in Saturday's loss to the Lakers, finishing with 16 points, five rebounds, eight assists and a steal.
Paul shot the ball well in this one converting over half of his shots from the field. This is the third game in a row that he has shot over 50 percent from the floor and his season average is hovering just below that. Consistent scoring, assists, and steals are the reasons why Paul is returning second-round value.

Chris Paul led the Thunder to a 113-92 win over the Rockets on Thursday with 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting to go with six rebounds, five assists, four steals and three 3-pointers.
Paul dismantled the Rockets' defense in this one and the revenge game narrative is in full effect. However, he's been doing this all season long as a top-25 player in 9-cat leagues. He's played in every game this season and is posting numbers close to his career averages which is a high return on investment, considering his price on draft day. The Point God still has it.

Chris Paul led the Thunder to a 111-103 overtime win over the Nets on Tuesday with a game-high 28 points (9-of-15 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs) and six rebounds, three assists, two steal and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.
CP3 hasn't missed a game yet this season, and while he's not the first-round player he used to be, he's definitely out-playing expectations. It's not a bad time to see if the team that rosters him might want to try to sell him before any possible injury crops up if you have more faith in his health.

Chris Paul scored 18 points with eight rebounds, six assists, a steal and four 3-pointers on Monday.
Paul went 6-for-16 from the floor and has been as healthy as ever to start this season. He's posting top-10 total value in 9-cat leagues thanks to his positive contributions across the board and is smashing his ADP right now. The Point God just needs to stay healthy.

Chris Paul scored seven points in Saturday's 121-106 win over the Cavs, chipping in 10 assists, four rebounds with three turnovers.
Paul did not seem dialed-in on this one and took a backseat to teammates Danilo Gallinari and Shail Gilgeous-Alexander to do the scoring. The 10 assists were nice but Paul failed to connect on a 3-pointer or register a steal. Nevertheless, he continues to provide second-round value when he is healthy.
January 4, 2020, 10:24 pmDennis SchroderPG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Dennis Schroder played 31 minutes off the bench and scored 22 points (9-of-15) in Saturday's win against the Cavs, chipping in two rebounds, three assists and a steal.
Though Schroder continues to come off the bench, he is averaging around 30 minutes a game. He has embraced the sixth man role and has thrived in both the second unit and when paired with teammate Chris Paul. Look for him to keep consistently performing as he would be a starter for a lot of teams in the league.

Chris Paul was great yet again during Sunday's 98-97 victory over the Raptors, notching 25 points (9-of-18 FG, 4-of-4 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists and three 3-pointers.
What can be said that hasn't already been written about CP3 right now. He is delivering close to first-round value on the season and has the Thunder well on its way to a playoff breath as his teammates blossom under his tutelage. With Dennis Schroder out tonight, Paul got Darius Bazley (12 points, four 3-pointers, five rebounds, two blocks) plenty of opportunities to shine over 30 minutes. If you are worried about an injury you can always sell high on the legend, but it is hard to resist riding this one out with everything clicking so perfectly.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the Thunder to a 104-102 victory over the Hornets on Friday with a game-high 27 points on 10-of-17 shooting.
SGA added four rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer and two steals to the box. He's hitting his stride now, scoring 20 points or more in five straight games now. Even if Chris Paul, who had 16 points (6-of-20 shooting), seven rebounds, six assists and one steal, is not traded by the deadline, SGA is someone to look to as a post-ASB breakout candidate.
December 26, 2019, 10:50 pmChris PaulPG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Chris Paul had a nice fantasy game in Thursday's 97-110 loss to the Grizzlies, scoring 23 points on an efficient 9-for-15 shooting to go with six rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.
All three of the Thunder's point guards topped 20 points tonight, with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander posting 21 points (8-for-19 FG), three steals and a triple and Dennis Schroder tallying 20 points (8-for-21 FG), three assists, a steal and two 3-pointers of his own. All three sit in the top-90 in 8-cat leagues, and only Schroder is outside the top-100 in 9-cat (at No. 125), so keep them locked into all lineups. They're going to be handling extra scoring burden with Danilo Gallinari out for the next two games at least.

Chris Paul finished Friday's victory over the Suns with 15 points (5-for-8 shooting), seven assists, two rebounds and a steal across 28 minutes.
With both Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Dennis Schroder catching fire in this one, Paul was able to take it easy for the most part. Continue valuing him as a top-10 fantasy point guard this season.
